Combining many years of telecom power systems experience with renewable energy expertise, Power-One has developed a modular and fully integrated hybrid solution for telecom applications. The addition of hybrid controllers to the Guardian portfolio enables optimal battery cyclic operation as well as energy management for grid/genset and solar/wind energy. The modular approach for 19” or 23” indoor or outdoor arrangements allows for a minimum initial investment and also a “pay-as-you-save” with the option of adding hybrid building blocks to existing Guardian installations. The solar and wind converters (FPV30.48 and FPW30.48) mark the extension of the Guardian high-efficiency rectifier range into the renewable energy realm, providing 2.9kW with each module and up to 14.5kW per 1U. These hybrid core components are accompanied by a range of accessories and along with the Guardian rectifier and DC/DC series it caters for all hybrid needs as networks go off the grid.
