GE Retrofit Power Systems

New Retrofit Power Systems Optimize Deployed Telecom Energy Systems

GE Retrofit Power Systems allow customers to realize energy savings, reduced cooling requirements and lower utility bills without having to replace the entire power system. By upgrading legacy DC power plants to modern high efficiency rectifiers, customers can reduce energy loss by 50+% and energy usage by 15-20%.

The new Retrofit Power Systems from GE Energy (formerly Lineage Power) allow existing installations to experience all the benefits of switching to high efficiency Switch Mode Rectifiers with minimal cost and disruption, while preserving all your existing cabling and distribution investments.

Available GE Retrofit Power Systems include:

Ferro/SCR Retrofit Power Solution

Ferro/SCR Retrofit Power Solution

Cost Effective Efficiency Upgrade

Documentation: Product specs/Ordering guide 

Lineage Power offered stand-alone 200A and 400A ferro-resonant rectifiers throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. These legacy ferro-resonant rectifiers have since been discontinued. The Ferro/SCR Retrofit Power Solution allows Lineage and third party legacy ferro-resonant or SCR rectifiers to be upgraded to modern energy-efficient switched mode rectifiers and controller technology while preserving existing cabling and distribution investments. Bolting patterns remain the same.

The Ferro/SCR Retrofit Power Solutions (RPS) utilizes 595LT Total Efficiency rectifiers to improve energy efficiency and deliver centralized management visibility and control. The 595LT TE rectifiers offer next generation efficiency approaching 97% with the proven reliability heritage of 595 rectifiers deployed in telecom networks for the past 20 years. Modern Galaxy SC or Millennium II controllers manage the 595LT TE rectifiers.

  • Preserves distribution and cabling investments
  • Retrofits legacy ferro or SCR rectifiers
  • Modern Galaxy SC and Millennium II controllers
    • Adaptive Rectifier Management (efficiency management)
    • Thermal compensation and battery management features
  • Efficiency approaching 97%

Lineage Power offered the Lineage 2000 ECS telecom power systems throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. The Lineage ECS Retrofit Power Solution enables these legacy power systems to be upgraded to modern rectifiers and controller technology, while leaving the distribution, shelves and frame in place.

The ECS Retrofit Power Solution upgrades the legacy 364 series rectifiers with the Lineage Power Infinity Series of rectifiers to improve energy efficiency and deliver centralized management visibility and control. The modern Galaxy Pulsar Plus controller manages the infinity rectifiers.

  • Preserves distribution and cabling investments
  • Modern Galaxy Pulsar Plus controller
    • Adaptive Rectifier management (efficiency management)
    • Thermal compensation and battery management features
  • -48V up to 600A (16.2 KW) or _24V up to 1200A (16.3 KW)
  • Efficiency approaching 97%

OSP Retrofit Power System

OSP Retrofit Power System

Cost-Effective Energy Efficient Upgrade

Documentation: Product specs/Ordering guide

Lineage Power offered the CPS2000, CPS4000, OLS and SLC telecom power systems for outside plant (OSP) applications over the past 30 years. The OSP Retrofit Power System enables these legacy cabinet power plants to be upgraded to modern rectifiers and controller technology, while leaving the distribution, shelves and frame in place.

The OSP Retrofit Power System upgrades the legacy rectifiers with CPS6000 TE rectifiers to improve energy efficiency and deliver centralized management visibility and control. The OSP RPS kits are designed to be “plug and play” as much as possible. Attention has been given to minimize disruption to power being supplied to the revenue generating equipment in the cabinet. The OSP RPS kits come with a CPS6000 Shelf, AC cables, battery cables, circuit breakers and fuses, alarm cables, and thermal probe kits.

  • Preserves distribution and cabling investments
  • High density power
  • 15 to 250A Systems at -48V
  • OSP cabinet and customer premise applications
  • Flexible AC input
  • Efficiency approaching 97%

Infinity B™ Power System

Infinity B™ Power System

Dual Voltage, Universal Bulk Power System

Documentation: Product specs/Ordering guide

The GE Energy (formerly Lineage Power) Infinity B DC energy system is a universal bulk power plant that supports dual voltage (+24V/-48V) operation through the use of a comprehensive range of state of the art rectifiers and DC-DC converters. Rectifiers and battery reserve support primary voltage, while DC-DC converter modules support secondary voltage. Primary voltage can be -48V or +24V. The bulk output panel is capable of connecting two 750 MCM and two 4/0 cables per polarity. Output can be routed top or bottom.

The Infinity B Power System has primary voltage capacity for +24V power up to 1,600A and -48V power up to 1,200A; secondary voltage capacity if up to 600A based on input capacity module.

  • Dual voltage power system with ultimate flexibility
  • -48V up to 1,200A (65KW) or +24V up to 1,600A (44KW)
  • Secondary voltage up to 600A
  • High availability wireless telecom applications
  • Energy efficiency approaching 97%

Infinity Rectifiers and Converters

Infinity Rectifiers and Converters

Documentation: Product specs/Ordering guide (see pages 2-3)

  • Compact – 1RU form factor providing high power density (24 W/in3)
  • Dual Voltage Compatibility – the unique connector pin designation allows the rectifier to be used in a “universal” power shelf, alongside rectifiers or DC-DC converters with different output voltages
  • Plug and Play – installation of the rectifier in a shelf connected to a compatible system controller initializes all set up parameters automatically. No adjustments are needed
  • Extended Service Life – Parallel operation with automatic load sharing ensures that parallel units are not unduly stressed even when a unit fails or is removed
  • Monitoring / Control – the built in microprocessor controls and monitors all critical rectifier functions and communicates with the system controller using the built in Galaxy Protocol serial interface
  • Fail Safe Performance – Hot insertion capabilities allow for rectifier replacement without system shutdown; soft start and inrush current protection prevent nuisance tripping of upstream breakers

Applications:

  • Telecommunications networks
  • Digital subscriber line (DSL)
  • Indoor/outdoor wireless
  • Routers/Switches
  • Fiber in the loop
  • Transmission
  • Data networks
  • PBX
