Emerson Network Power Introduces NetSure 701H Hybrid Systems
By Mandira Srivastava
Extending its established capabilities in the area of hybrid energy for telecom access sites up to 21kW, Emerson Network Power (News - Alert) has introduced NetSure 701H series of hybrid systems for indoor and outdoor hybrid energy applications.
The system incorporates an integrated design that manages multiple energy sources, reduces operational costs by more than 50 percent, and requires less than two hours for installation.
It addresses specific ongoing challenges in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean, South America and other growing regions where grid power infrastructure may be limited or unreliable.
Fuel costs, generator and maintenance routines are among the major operational expenses involved in running access sites – especially remote sites – by telecom operators and tower companies. As a result, in many parts of the world, hybrid energy solutions are increasingly used as an option to minimize costs and remain competitive.
Space required for setting up these sites often comes at a premium price as well. By reducing the footprint required on-site to less than 1.5 square meters, The NetSure 701H series helps ensure the access site has space for future growth.
“The NetSure 701H series of hybrid systems minimizes costs – by using significantly less fuel and requiring fewer maintenance visits – while improving network reliability for our customers,” said Wake Norris, director of product management, solutions for Emerson Network Power’s Energy Systems business. “Emerson Network Power was the first infrastructure provider to address the need for dramatic operational savings through hybrid energy solutions and the NetSure 701H series of hybrid systems further extends our best-in-class performance while reducing the site footprint and enabling active site management to ensure long-term system health and efficiency.”
By effectively blending power from generators, batteries, solar, grid/mains and other sources, Hybrid solutions achieve the lowest possible energy cost. Optional active site management provided by Emerson Network Power’s hybrid solutions, including the NetSure 701H series, ensures proper battery health, optimal generator maintenance, real-time fuel information and other operational benefits.
“Every potential hybrid site is different, with unique and often unpredictable environmental and regulatory considerations,” Norris said. “At Emerson Network Power, we have the technologies, experience and expertise needed to engineer hybrid site solutions to help providers achieve the desired balance between capital and operational cost to achieve maximum ROI, even as operating conditions change.”
