Cyberex® FaultGuard™ Remote Power Panel (RPP)
Power distribution module
The FaultGuard RPP with ABB ProLine panelboard provides a flexible, reliable, and safe solution for electrical distribution on the data center floor. The RPP’s integral panelboard features touch safe, plug-in branch circuit breakers, designed for the most mission critical applications.
Working on live electrical equipment is never recommended, however sometimes becomes a ‘necessary’ task due to the criticality of system loads in a data center. Cyberex RPPs significantly enhance worker safety due to its touch safe panelboard chassis and plug in current limiting branch breakers. Along with drastically reducing the shock hazard, the use of current limiting breakers significantly reduces the arc flash potential to which a worker could be exposed. Both benefits help users comply with NPFA 70E guidelines and OSHA standards.
The ABB PL700 circuit breakers are among the industry’s first UL current limiting branch breakers and provide the highest level of protection for sensitive downstream IT loads and the mitigation of arc flash hazard for workers. Along with providing superior short circuit current protection, these current limiting breakers are easily coordinated with upstream ABB circuit breakers, helping to eliminate the risk of cascading faults and unnecessary outages to critical loads.
Flexibility and future proofing are also inherent benefits of the FaultGuardTM RPP. The panel’s touch safe plug in breakers allow for quick changes or replacement with minimal impact to the rest of the system. The FaultGuardTM RPP allows system owners to design in provisions to replace branch breakers and increase protection as their power demands increase on the rack.
Proper foresight may allow system designers and data center owners to build in electrical infrastructure to support IT refreshes without the need for extended downtime.
