Raritan's hybrid rack transfer switch system is the first in the world to offer both electromechanical relays and silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs) to overcome the limitations of a traditional automatic transfer switch (ATS). It provides load transfer times that are comparable to that of a static transfer switch (STS), more energy efficiently, and at a far more accessible price point. It is also the first in the world to offer inlet, outlet, and branch circuit level power metering; and outlet-level switching for better remote power control.
Raritan's rack transfer switch offers:
Raritan offers the first hybrid rack transfer switch combining electromechanical relays and silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs) for exceptional performance and reliability.
SCRs provide fast power transfer times at 4 to 8ms, ensuring that your equipment continues to operate when power fails or fluctuates.
This pioneering rack transfer switch offers inlet surge protection, field replaceable output short protection, redundant internal power supplies and dual controllers
Real-time remote power quality monitoring with user define-able thresholds and alerts for voltage and frequency. Includes AC waveform of last transfer and metering of power loads.
Monitor power utilization at the inlet, outlet, or branch circuit level to prevent tripped breakers, uncover hidden capacity, and use resources efficiently.
Reboot hung servers or keep outlets off to prevent unauthorized access, ensure proper provisioning, and avoid tripped breakers.
Built-in sensors detect failed power feeds and ensure break-before-make power transfer from one power source to another within 4 to 8ms.
Uses two single throw relays instead of one double throw relay (a single point of failure) to support reliable transfers regardless of power phase.
Uses SCRs and oversized relays, with an air gap of 3.3mm vs. the 0.6mm gap as used in most transfer switch relays, to prevent arcing due to power surges.
Optional ports for plug-and-play environmental sensors that allow you to monitor critical environmental conditions.
The transfer switch comes equipped with front and back USB ports to support Wi-Fi networking, cascading, webcams, quick setup, and tablet access and control.
Threshold alerting and status updates via GSM text, email, and syslog. An intuitive GUI, SNMP, Modbus, TCP/IP, JSON-RPC for scripting, IPv4/IPv6.
Make informed capacity planning decisions, efficiently utilize power resources, and monitor power fluctuations.
Runs up to 60°C(UL) and 50°C(CE) environment at 85% relative humidity.
Seamlessly integrates with Power IQ® DCIM Monitoring Software for complete data center power infrastructure management.
