Supply, protection, and monitoring in functional building
Automation in functional building means that the number of intelligent devices that need to be supplied is constantly increasing. A wide range of applications are connected together via the central control cabinet. Some of them are absolutely critical for operation. In functional building with intensive operations, the focus on supplying, protecting, and monitoring these applications therefore goes beyond ensuring user comfort. Here, it is important to efficiently optimize the power supply through monitoring and to avoid the negative economic consequences of system failures.
COMPLETE line provides you with systemic solutions for the supply, protection, and monitoring of energy in functional building.
Structure of a reliable power supply for functional building
Type 1+2+3 lightning and surge protection reliably protects electrical installations against surge voltage. The optional remote signaling module with digital output signals tripping and maintenance requirements.
For loads where the cable distance is more than 10 m from the protected main distribution, additional fine protection is recommended.
In outdoor installations in particular, home charging stations, outdoor lighting, pumps, and photovoltaic systems must be protected against surge voltage. In some cases, these devices are already equipped with surge protection ex works; in other cases, surge protection needs to be added by the customer.
Photovoltaic systems require both AC- and DC-side protection. Fully preassembled string combiner boxes simplify connection considerably. Special photovoltaic connectors also enable safe connection.
DC voltage is often used to power electrical door systems, alarm systems, notification systems, and other security and convenience systems. For this purpose, the conversion of the AC voltage is necessary. Historically, different systems require different voltage levels. TRIO or QUINT POWER power supplies provide solutions in finely graduated performance classes for all of these.
QUINT and TRIO POWER offer various system solutions with UPS, redundancy systems, and batteries as backup. They thus reliably protect against the failure of electrical systems as needed.
Within the DC circuits, the thermal, thermomagnetic, or electronic circuit breakers provide optimum protection.
As the number of electrical loads increases, so does the potential for energy optimization, and thus the need for monitoring. EMpro energy measuring devices, which can be integrated into the corresponding networks via various interfaces, are suitable for this purpose.
Sockets for DIN rail mounting enable the direct connection of 230 V devices, e.g., as a power source for maintenance work.
Solutions for the subdistribution and connection of the various devices can be found in the “Connectivity” functional unit.
