The LayerZero eSTS is designed for maximum operator safety. It uses a sectionalized design, which means that the power quality monitoring and SCRs are housed in a separate cabinet from the circuit breakers and customer cable connections. This compartmentalized design allows the equipment to be safely operated and serviced.
In normal operation, the inner dead-front doors of the eSTS remain closed. A mechanical interlock is built into the door, which prevents the bypass procedure from being initiated accidentally. This helps to eliminate human error and ensure the safety of operators.
A polycarbonate window in the door allows operators to safely view the status LEDs in the control section without opening the door. INSIGHT IR® cameras (optional) or IR Ports (standard) provide the ability to monitor the temperatures of critical connections with the doors safely closed.
The LayerZero Power Systems eSTS is a safe and reliable piece of equipment that is designed to protect operators and equipment.
The LayerZero eSTS Static Transfer Switch is designed with internal redundancy to ensure maximum reliability. Every logical machine segment of the eSTS is powered with triple redundant power supplies, which eliminates the risk of signal interference. Control communications utilize fiber optic signals to further maximize system reliability.
The eSTS is equipped standard with Single Module Redundancy (SMR), a cost-effective topology that provides redundant power paths to mission-critical equipment. In SMR systems, each source has built-in triple redundancy of processors, and every phase is controlled with a separate gate drive board. This unique topology ensures that the system is fail-safe, maintaining full switching functionality even if a critical board were to fail.
For applications where reliability simply cannot be compromised, the eSTS offers Triple Modular Redundant (TMR) architecture. In TMR systems, all components are triple redundant, so that a failure of any component on any board will not compromise the critical load. With appropriate and timely service and maintenance, an eSTS TMR system will maintain virtually 100% probability of mission success.
Power Quality Monitoring Features
The LayerZero eSTS is equipped with an advanced Power Quality Monitoring (PQM) system that provides local and remote access using non-proprietary protocols. The PQM system includes basic monitoring, alarms, waveform capture, and ITIC plotting capabilities.
The ITIC plotting utility is used to audit the quality of transfers. Systems can be configured to automatically email users waveform captures as an attachment. This ensures that users are notified of events as they happen, without having to manually check for waveform captures.
- Ethernet Connectivity: This port is used to connect to a network.
- Modbus/TCP: This protocol is used to communicate with BMS systems.
- NTP Time Clock Synchronization: This protocol is used to synchronize the switch's clock with an external time source.
- SNMP Connectivity: This protocol is used to manage the switch remotely.
