Transition Networks Indura switch line now includes high-voltage for use in substation applications
Jan 30, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
Communications Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JCS) subsidiary Transition Networks Inc. said it is expanding its new Indura product platform to include high-voltage VDC and VAC input power.
The Indura electrical substation IEC 61850-3 certified switch, designed and engineered for Smart Grid and electrical substation infrastructures, now includes IND-328x-H high-voltage versions.
The most frequently used voltage ranges used to power transmission & distribution substation automation equipment in North America is 72-125 VDC followed by 24-48 VDC. While the Transition Networks' low-voltage versions of the Indura switch line are equipped for 18-57 VDC dual-input power, the new high-voltage versions of the switch are equipped for 125-300 VDC or 100-250 VAC input power to meet the demands of most substation deployments. The IND-328x-H meets the power input requirements for several of the components residing within the substation including, transformers, breakers, busses, switches, capacitor banks, Remote Terminal Units, Programmable Logic Controllers, Intelligent Electronic Devices, and communication systems, which are often designed for 125 VDC.
With over 25 years of growth and expertise in hardware manufacturing, Transition Networks offers the ability to affordably integrate the benefits of fibre optics into any data network.
