Dallas, Texas - Tyco Electronics' Infinity FMS Power System is a new modular concept that's part of the company's Infinity Platform introduced in 2001. The -48/+24V plant is designed to be an extremely flexible and highly efficient 23-inch rack-mounted power system that supports two modular rectifier families. It's designed to fit in with the high-density requirements of North American wireless applications.
The Infinity FMS Power System operates with many of the same components as the company's Galaxy Power System, including the Galaxy Vector controller, which is a single-point interface for rectifier control, alarm and status reporting, battery management and plant diagnostic.
The Infinity FMS utilizes Tyco's NP Series of rectifiers rated from 800 to 2500 watts, and delivers from 15 to 800 amps in a half-height frame, and up to 1200 amps in a full height frame. A sub-frame suitable for cabinet applications is also available, which can be arranged to hold one NP Series shelf for a NP base system or one PXS Series shelf for use with the new 596DTM switchmode rectifier.
"The Infinity FMS Power System integrates maximum design efficiency with exceptional power density and incremental, cost-effective system growth, allowing customers to grow their systems as the power requirements increase," said Sabi Varma, Vice President of Business Operations for Tyco Electronics Power Systems.
The Infinity FMS Power System is designed to provide easy installation, minimal maintenance and an automated system setup, with the controller and rectifiers communicating via a digital interface. The system's continuous operation and in-service upgrades allow system components, including rectifiers, distribution, and controller options, to be added in the field without interrupting service.
The Infinity FMS Power System features modular plug-and-play components, remote monitoring capabilities, universal AC input, and low voltage disconnect. It comes with options for a laptop tray, and additional battery shelf with cables. The Infinity FMS plant meets System EMI FCC level B safety and standards specs, and is currently undergoing NEBS certification. List price for basic configurations start at $4,800 per unit.
