Eltek Valere (News - Alert), a leader in high efficiency power systems, announced in a press release, the company will showcase their new products at CTIA (News - Alert) 2011. These new products have the ability to provide the industry’s highest efficiency (HE) power for 3G and 4G wireless networks, and one is even NEBS certified.
CTIA 2011 is an arena where the best and brightest in the wireless technology industry get a chance to meet, collaborate on ideas, and see new products and services. This year’s show is being held at the Orange (News - Alert) County Convention Center in Orlando, from March 22-24.
Eltek Valere will be introducing new 48V, 1,500W and 2,000W versions of its high efficiency V Series rectifiers, which are the main features within the company’s Compact DC Power System and Integrated DC Power System.
These systems were designed to meet the increasing power demands that 3G and 4G wireless communications, enterprise and broadband access equipment require—and are currently being used in thousands of wireless and remote terminal telecom locations throughout the world. Based on Eltek Valere’s HE technology, the rectifiers can offer an efficiency of up to 96 percent.
Eltek Valere will also be previewing a new hybrid battery distribution fuse bay (BDFB) for mobile telephone switching office (MTSO) applications. The BDFB works as a secondary power distribution center for 48 VDC power that comes from a central office battery plant to the load equipment. The Eltek Valere BDFB is 15” deep and is NEBS, UL and CSA certified. The BDFB boasts two, four or six-600 amp A or B input feeds, each with 800 amp shunts.
Also on display at the show is the Eltek Valere Trilogy DC Power System, which is a 40A-600A, 48VDC telecom power system that has the capabilities to fully manage both AC mains and solar power inputs. Based on Eltek Valere’s market-leading Flatpack2 HE rectifier, the compact Trilogy has a 15-inch rectifier depth and can provide efficiency of 96.5 percent, which the highest power conversion efficiency in the industry.
For picocell deployments, Eltek Valere will be displaying the Micropack power system, which is currently being used by a leading U.S. 4G wireless operator, for its network of picocell sites in many big U.S. cities.
The Micropack is a perfect fit when needed for tiny confined spaces of 3G and 4G picocell cabinets, and it scales from 250W up to 1000W, with rectifiers that measure only 44 mm wide by 150 mm deep by 134 mm high. This compact size is very important as the picocell cabinet houses all communications equipment, power supplies and up to two hours of battery backup packed in a single pole-mounted enclosure.
