DuraComm Expands Its Product Portfolio with Several New DIN Mountable LVD Units, DC to DC Power Converters and Wind Power Generators

Share Article

The 2011 IWCE (International Wireless Communications Expo) in Las Vegas was the setting for the latest announcement of new products from DuraComm Corporation's Power Supply Division. Appealing to new markets with entirely new lines of products, including Wind Power Generators and DC to DC Power Converters, these introductions generated lots of buzz.

The creative technical team at DuraComm has been busy developing several new products that made their market debut at the IWCE (International Wireless Communications Expo) show in Las Vegas last month. These include Low Voltage Disconnect units that are DIN mountable, a complete series of DC to DC Power Converters and two Wind Power Generators.

Five new products comprise the DIN-LVD Series. The first offers 75 Amps (Max), two others offer 50 Amps (Max) and the remaining two provide 30 Amps (Max). Low Voltage Disconnects stop battery damage due to excessive discharging; they disconnect the battery when it falls below a preset voltage threshold and then reconnect once voltage is restored to a preset level. Each of these LVD's can be installed on DIN Rail TS-35/7.5 or 15.

Joe White, DuraComm's Senior Product Manager, points out: "as with all LVD's, this series protects equipment that is sensitive to low voltage during battery operation and helps extend battery life by preventing over-discharge. They protect radio equipment by keeping it from operating at low battery voltages, thereby preventing potential microprocessor and memory problems. The disconnect and reconnect points are adjustable to meet a wide variety of system needs and battery requirements."

The new DCDC Series of rack mount power converters is offered in the following five configurations / models.

DCDC-24-12 offers 60 Amps with 12 VDC,
DCDC-24-24 offers 25 Amps with 24 VDC,
DCDC-48-12 offers    60 Amps with 12 VDC,
DCDC-48-24 offers 40 Amps with 24 VDC, and
DCDC-48-48 offers 20 Amps with 48 VDC.

According to Lee Ward, Sales Engineer for DuraComm, "the DCDC Series provides reliable and stable power for telecommunications facilities and add an additional level of surge protection for delicate electronic equipment." As with the LVD units delineated above, this built-in feature will prevent complete discharge of the battery bank. Up to 1000 Watts of power is available along with short circuit, overload and over temperature protections. Additional features include the Output DC OK Signal, remote control on/off, thermostat control forced air cooling, meter (voltage and current, selectable) and 2000 VAC I/O isolation.

Expanding beyond traditional power supply and battery management products, DuraComm is pleased to introduce two industrial wind turbines for battery charging. The DJET-100 (100 Watts) and DJET-200 (200 Watts) each generate 12 VDC of power, which is excellent for telecom systems, offshore platforms and remote monitoring systems. The DJET-100 comes in a kit form, is compact and suitable for rural area households, camping and small battery charging needs. Weighing only a little over 13 pounds, it is easy to assemble / dismantle and is an excellent add-on power source for use in remote locations where moderate winds prevail.

These highly efficient, renewable energy generating units automatically adjust to wind direction, have low start-up wind speeds and are marine environment resistant. Both models feature permanent magnet generators, electrical brakes and can be configured in a variety of ways, including as a Solar Power Supplement.

Each of these new products comes with the standard 2 year DuraComm warranty.
