Distribution Series 2
Single Bus Intelligent DC Load Distribution Panels
The ICT Distribution Series 2 DC Distribution Panels are designed to be used in 12, 24 or 48VDC applications. All models feature 12 fused output positions. For +12/24VDC models, nine outputs are ATO/ATC type fuses rated at up to 25 amps each, and three are JCASE type fuses rated at up to 40A each. For +/- 48VDC models, 12 outputs are GMT type fuses rated at up to 15 amps each. Fuses and LED indicators are located on the front, enabling easy monitoring and replacement.An integrated security protected Ethernet communications port (select models) allows the panel to be monitored from a remote site using an industry standard web browser. HTTPS and SNMP V1/V2c/V3 protocols are supported. System current, system voltage, individual output currents and fuse status can be monitored, and alarms can be sent to multiple email accounts.
DC outputs can be turned on and off remotely (select models), allowing connected loads to be power-cycled using the Ethernet connection. Automatic load-shedding can be defined to protect critical loads. A network watchdog feature will ping up to two I.P. addresses and power-cycle loads such as routers which may need rebooting to restore communications with the site.
- 5 digital alarm sensor contact inputs for site monitoring and reporting of alarms such as door, water, and smoke detectors
- SNMPv1/v2c/v3 supported
- Monitoring and alarm reporting of each output for improved pinpointing of issues with connected loads
- Enhanced SSL support provides robust security as well as support for webmail applications
- Multiple email accounts can be set up to receive alarm messages
- Remote Power Control models will restore to previously saved settings after a power loss (IRC/BRC models)nts can be set up to receive alarm messages
- Each output features independently adjustable loadshed settings (IRC/BRC models)
- Smart phone optimized web page makes monitoring and controlling each output from a mobile device a breeze
- A fuse-ignore feature prevents nuisance alarms if an unused output does not have a fuse installed (I/IRC models)
- Three low-profile JCASE fuses rated up to 40A each (I/IRC models)
Lower Cost of Ownership
All models come with a 2-year warranty. Intelligent and Broadband models are Ethernet enabled for remote monitoring, and the Remote Power Control models allow remote shutdown or power-cycling of individual outputs, potentially saving unnecessary service call-outs. Firmware can be updated remotely over the web. Five digital input contacts allow site monitoring sensors like door, smoke, and water alarms to be named, monitored and reported over Ethernet. Form C outputs are provided on all models.
Remote Monitoring Over Ethernet
Intelligent and Broadband models are Ethernet enabled, and utilize a built-in Ethernet connector and integrated web server to allow users to remotely monitor load conditions at the panel. System voltage and current, as well as the current reading of each output, can be monitored. This can provide an indication of a problem with the system power, or with individual connected loads such as radios, repeaters, or RF amplifiers. Text or email alerts can be sent when an alarm is triggered. Up to 30 days of data logging is provided.
Remote Power Control Over Ethernet
Remote Power Control models allow the individual DC outputs to be turned on and off remotely using the Ethernet connection. This allows connected devices to be turned on and off or power-cycled, potentially averting the need for an on-site service visit. The Network Watchdog feature pings a designated I.P. address and will restart an assigned output automatically, allowing devices such as routers to be power-cycled to avoid losing communications to the site. Load shedding is provided with user definable settings for each output, allowing non-essential loads to be automatically shut down in order to prolong power to priority loads.
Ease of Installation and Use
Fuses are mounted on the front to facilitate easy replacement. Alarm LED indicators and Form C alarm contacts are provided on all models to assist with troubleshooting and fault detection. Heavy duty stud connectors are provided for the main DC inputs, and space saving terminal blocks are used for the outputs. All Ethernet enabled models have an intuitive, easy to use Graphical User Interface that can be accessed from a standard web browser (no software required). SNMP allows for autodiscovery and trap reporting for users with Network Management Systems.
