Florham Park, N.J., USA - August 6, 2020ASCO Power Technologies, the world’s leading provider of critical power solutions, has expanded the capabilities of its 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 speed troubleshooting by tracing faults to specific I/O components and ports
  • Standard Managed Ethernet Switches in Remote I/O Modules for establishing redundant PCS control rings without purchasing additional components
  • Connectivity to the Schneider Electric EcoStruxure environment
All 7000 SERIES PCS can now be equipped with Schneider Electric Masterpact MTZ breakers. These units offer:
  • Seamless connection to EcoStruxure Power, Schneider Electric’s platform for increasing electrical safety, availability, and efficiency
  • Embedded Ethernet connections and a Class 1 power meter to provide comprehensive data to any building or power management system
  • Digital Modules for smart connectivity, remote monitoring, and easy customization
  • Standard Energy Reducing Maintenance Switches (ERMS) that mitigate arc flash risks
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. The 7000 SERIES PCS offers ASCO Power Technologies’ 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 mission-critical applications
Facilities that install ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS get the most from their power sources. Users can parallel multiple sources to achieve sufficient power capacity, and manage load demand to maximize the efficient use of available generators. 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 operating costs. With ASCO 7000 SERIES PCS, facilities can add and keep more loads online.

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 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 ASCO Power Technologies’ Critical Power Management System to provide unrivaled power metering, monitoring, control, and forensic analytics.“
