Key Features:

Clamp/Safety Chassis:
Protects the repeaters/cable and PFE. A HV relay and dump circuit will quickly and safely discharge the system in case of emergency shutdown.

Output Control:
Using either the Master front panel or SMT; the system output can be operated in constant current or constant voltage control and as a feed for a single end, double end or branched line.

Advanced Touchscreen Control and Monitoring SystemSystem Management Terminal (SMT):
An advanced touchscreen control and monitoring system, the SMT can be installed within the PFE cabinets or remotely up to 80m from the PFE.

Features include:

  • Full output control and monitoring
  • Ramp up and down in current or voltage control User set alarm and trip system|
  • Output voltage and current logging
  • Event logging
  • Tone generator 10-40Hz

Patch Panel:
User configurable interconnects from Converter(s) to Electronic Load or Cable Termination Cubicles (CTC’s).

Electronic Load:
Fully isolated and actively adjustable resistance by a user. The electronic load allows input voltages from 600V to 12,000V in either polarity.

Interlock System:
Full protection for user and connected equipment. All PFE access panels and patch panel connections are interlocked. External connection terminals provided to allow connection to CTCs, associated equipment or external E-Stop circuits.

Dimensions: in.[mm]

Optional Terminal Cable

Optional Cable Termination Cubicle (CTC12/377):
Used to safely accommodate half joints and bare cables for installation and repairs. The CTC provides a safe, interlocked enclosure for connection of the PFE HV to the cable conductors. 2 clamps and strain relief allow the fiber core to be separated and safely routed out of the box to external optical equipment.
