ASCO Power Technologies unveils a single-device solution to streamline BESS deployment for backup applications.
Florham Park, N.J., USA – January 23, 2024 – Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) are essential for storing excess energy from Distributed Energy Sources (DES) to optimize costs and increase sustainability. Typically supplied by both a utility feed and an alternative energy source, a BESS cannot supply backup or emergency power without a means of isolating the utility source. This challenge required a custom solution for every facility. Until now.
ASCO Power Technologies’ new SourcePacT Interconnect Source Isolation Switch streamlines grid isolation for BESS projects with a single device design to the new UL 3008 standard.
SourcePacT is the industry’s first purpose-built grid-isolation solution enabling BESS to supply emergency power to the facility’s most important loads. Able to communicate with any inverter equipped with Form-C contacts, SourcePacT offers unique benefits in the following ways:
- Specifiers: SourcePacT engineering and specification with a standardized device designed to UL 3008.
- Dealers and Distributors: SourcePacT is the first standardized solution for solving a customer’s BESS isolation challenge.
- Contractors: Consisting of a single factory-tested device, SourcePacT is easy to install and commission.
- Owners: SourcePacT’s single interface is simple to use during day-to-day operations and periodic tests.
“ASCO Power Technologies is proud to introduce an isolation switch that enables facilities to meet code requirements and operate with standardized equipment for maximum levels of reliability,” said Expert Product Owner Victor Bonachea. “SourcePacT is a great addition to our product line because it expands opportunities to increase sustainability and power continuity.”
