Spectrum Power Management Systems (SPMS), a division of Spectrum Control, Inc. and well-known manufacturer of AC and DC power distribution units and management solutions, recently announced the creation of a new focus area for three phase AC power distribution which will be added to their standard product catalog immediately. Products to be added to the line-up include; three phase rack mount power strips, switched and sequenced PDUs, and a number of intelligent turn-key solutions offering land monitoring, switching, and remote communication options. All of Spectrum Power Management Systems' 3 phase solutions may be reconfigured to meet exact customer requirements.

The use of three phase power brings with it many efficiencies, not the least of which, is lower cost of ownership via the physical power installation (i.e. one run of three phase cabling vs. 3 individual runs of single phase wiring.) Also, an overlooked benefit is that by bringing the 3Ø cable directly into the cabinet you are more likely to achieve a balance loading of the 3Ø circuit which lessens the prospects of harmonic distortion or sequencing the power factor of facility power. A cleaner and clutter-free area under a raised floor isn't hard to accept for a facility manager.

Spectrum's broad offering of 3 phase power distribution solutions include a wide array of products suitable for use in a number of applications. Three Phase AC Rack Mount Power Strips (both WYE and DELTA) are available in a variety of input/outputs, form factors, and power ratings. 3 phase power strips have also been developed in several design variants including; basic, metered, and monitored configurations. 3 phase power strips are ideal for use in data racks and centers, emergency management and medical equipment, portable charging carts, and scientific instrumentation cabinets among many other applications.

Also available are solutions from the Three Phase Power Distribution Unit "Power Master" collection. Comprehensive three phase AC distribution units offer options such as; power monitoring, emergency power off, switched and sequenced inputs, communication capabilities, rugged field packaging, and EMI filtering. Spectrum has also made it easy for clients to select the right solution for their needs with the "Design Your Own" 3 phase power strip/PDU tool. The design tool guides users through a visual, step by step PDU creation process, offering educational guidance and allowing the user to select attributes specific to their requirements. The specifications are then output and may be forwarded to an experienced engineer to discuss the building possibility further.
