LayerZero Power Systems Releases Series 70 ePODs™: Dual, Type-P To Manufacture
Chagrin Falls, Ohio (December 11, 2006) LayerZero Power Systems, Inc. has upgraded the ePODs™: Dual Type-P to include the safety features embedded into the Series 70 product line, named the Series 70: ePODs Dual Type-P.
The Series 70 ePODs™: Dual Type-P places a high emphasis on NFPA 70e requirements, and includes additional safety features to protect operators. The most significant change is the addition of InSight IR™ Portholes, a technology that utilizes a protective mesh to keep the risks of arc flash away from operators, while allowing all bolted connections to be scanned without opening the front doors of the unit.
Also added is the SafePanel™, a IP-20 rated finger-safe breaker panel board with a recessed well that fully encapsulates circuit breakers before the connection is made. Breakers can be safely installed, as the plug well is closed before a connection is made. In addition, the breaker subfeeds has a lockout safety feature that mechanically prevents breakers from being removed live.
LayerZero ePODs allow for sub-feed current monitoring, and have a built-in web server to allow this information to be easily accessed over a network. Alarm information can accessed over MODBUS/TCP, a standard web browser, or through dry contacts. ePODs are NTP (Network Time Protocol) compliant, to allow for units to be synchronized to a centralized server. LayerZero ePODs are compatible with most system management software packages.
