AMETEK Solidstate Controls Announces DVS Power Conditioner

Las Vegas – AMETEK Solidstate Controls, a leading manufacturer of industrial power inverters and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), today introduced a Digital Voltage Stabilizer (DVS) power conditioner designed to work in the most-extreme environmental conditions and capable of single- or three-phase conditioning to conserve energy.

Available now, the DVS accommodates a wide variety of incoming AC line voltages, while regulating and conditioning the AC output to preset limits. In a typical distribution system, the rated input voltage usually operates at voltages slightly higher or lower than the actual rating, affecting sensitive downstream loads. AMETEK Solidstate Controls’ DVS fixes that issue in both single- and three-phase applications.

“AMETEK Solidstate Controls’ DVS is a tremendous advancement in our product line, as its ability to handle additional capabilities outperforms its predecessors,” says Jason Cotton, Director and Business Manager at AMETEK Solidstate Controls. “A typical isolation bypass transformer is not sufficient to protect loads during routine or even emergency maintenance. With our DVS, output remains consistent despite input fluctuations, resulting in much better performance and overall operations.”

Other features include:
• DVS costs significantly less and is much lighter with electrical components than systems that are fully dependent on heavy power magnetics.
• Capable of exceeding 205,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF), DVS is twice as efficient than ferroresonant technologies.
• DVS can be used in the bypass path of a UPS or as a standalone system capable of up to one percent regulated output.
• Its robust design utilizes a copper-wound, triple-shielded, low-impedance isolation transformer.
• DVS incorporates state-of-the-art microprocessor technology.
