ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS Provides Advanced Management of Power Sources and Loads

ASCO 7000 SERIES Power Control Systems Do More than Just Parallel Generators

Florham Park, N.J., January 31, 2019—ASCO Power Technologies, the world’s leading provider of critical power solutions, has expanded the capabilities of its ASCO 7000 SERIES Power Control System (PCS). In addition to robust Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) from Allen-Bradly and General Electric, ASCO is now providing PCS equipment controlled by Schneider Electric’s Modicon PLCs.

These units offer the following additional switchgear capabilities:
  • Clock synchronization between PLCs and peripheral components that enables users to construct more detailed timelines for evaluating power events and diagnosing power issues.
  • Diagnostics that can trace faults to specific I/O components and ports to speed troubleshooting.
  • Standard Managed Ethernet Switches in Remote I/O Modules for establishing redundant PCS control rings without purchasing additional components.
As always, every 7000 SERIES PCS is engineered-to-order to provide the full benefit of more than 50 years of ASCO PCS engineering excellence for mission-critical facilities. As before, ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS offers ASCO’s widest range of power control capabilities. These systems can:
  • Parallel standby generator and utility sources in low and medium voltage applications
  • Synchronize up to 32 generators and automatically connect them to bus
  • Parallel generators with utility feeds and renewable energy sources
  • Use segmented bus to increase availability and connect multiple generators quickly
  • Control up to 128 automatic transfer switches and/or electrically operated circuit breakers
  • Measure real-time demand to add and shed loads according to available generation capacity
  • Employ redundant control schemes to enhance reliability
  • Prioritize loads to ensure the most important circuits receive power first
  • Manually control the connection and disconnection of power sources and loads
  • Execute sophisticated operating sequences to optimize systems for custom applications
Facilities that install ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS get the most from their power sources. Users can parallel multiple sources to achieve sufficient power, and manage load demand to maximize the efficient use of generator capacity. Users can also parallel different types of power sources to optimize operations and reduce costs. Because ASCO has paralleled utility power with generators for more than 40 years, facility managers can confidently employ utility load curtailment and peak shaving strategies to comply with agreements and reduce costs.

With ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS, facilities can add and keep more loads online. Standard and Dynamic Bus Optimization features identify maximum available bus capacity to add discrete loads and maximize generator usage. ASCO’s exclusive Load Latch feature enhances critical power availability by preventing unnecessary load shedding. Manual Load Controls provide operational flexibility for any circumstance.

Users can specify a range of bus configurations to maximize performance. Single Bus, Segmented Bus, and Ring Bus help bring loads online fast and improve availability, redundancy, and reliability. ASCO’s premier PCS options offer enhanced system visualization and intelligent simulation from across the room or across the world. Unsurpassed system integration and available automated regulatory reporting streamline operations and reduce regulatory burdens.

“Customization is the key to facility optimization,” says Anthony Landi, Director of Engineering. “Because every 7000 SERIES system is custom-engineered, ASCO can configure systems for virtually any mission-critical need in data centers, healthcare complexes, and industrial facilities. Years of experience with the industry’s largest systems and most complex event sequences provide sophisticated solutions that few can match.”

The ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS can be equipped with a range of value-added features from ASCO’s PowerQuest® product lineup. The 7000 SERIES PCS can interface with popular Power and Building Management Systems, and works with the ASCO Critical Power Management System to provide unrivalled power metering, monitoring, control, and forensic analytics.
