AMETEK Solidstate Controls Introduces DES Uninterruptible Power Supply System

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

COLUMBUS, OH-- AMETEK Solidstate Controls, a leader in highly customized uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), has launched the latest addition to its line of industrial UPS systems—DSE Uninterruptible Power Supply System. The DSE is a true, on-line, double conversion UPS system that provides continuous, clean, regulated power for critical AC loads.

Designed specifically for process control in demanding industrial applications, the DSE combines the digital control, enhanced communications, monitoring, and diagnostic capabilities of a Pulse Width Modulation UPS system with the proven rugged design and reliability of a ferroresonant transformer. In addition, the DSE system features the same LCD panel and user friendly touch-screen display as Solidstate Controls’ digital ProcessPower® line of UPS systems.

Among the benefits of the DSE are AMETEK’s ferroresonant design, which has over 50 years of field-proven reliability, high mean time between failures (MTBF) that exceeds 205,000 hours or 23 years of service, and a rugged industrial construction.

The DSE features vacuum pressure impregnated (VPI) magnetics with 200oC epoxy insulation (Class C), long-life LED indicators, and full front panel accessibility. No side or back service clearance required. The system also includes an integral system event recorder for diagnostics that logs up to 500 events, a lighted mimic panel display, and micro-processor based alarms. In addition, its unique crest factor circuitry provides full capacity for non-linear loads.

AMETEK Solidstate Controls is a recognized leader in highly customized inverters and UPS systems for critical processes involving harsh environments such as power generation and petrochemical processing (including fossil fuel and nuclear power utilities).

All AMETEK Solidstate Control UPS systems come with custom design assistance and global 24/7 field service that currently consists of a sales and technical assistance network in more than 20 countries and installed equipment in more than 70 countries worldwide.

AMETEK Solidstate Controls has administrative and manufacturing operations at its world headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. It is a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annualized sales of $4.2 billion.
