Clears faults to prevent loss of power to other equipment
The Genie is designed to supply AC power and isolate multiple critical loads fed by one panel. Genie is manufactured in our ISO 9001:2008 certified facilities and incorporates the Always On Specifically Designed Breaker (SDB). Genie protects the connected loads from reacting to problems caused by short circuits, ie momentary loss of voltage (opening contacs, re-boots, etc) and high current spikes creating a possible hazard at the failed or shorted loads. During short circuit condition with a standard distribution panel, the UPS will be automatically transferred to static bypass mode, allowing the input utility to supply dangerously high currents (approximately 1000% of the maximum UPS current) for 18 to 22 cycles (the normal amount of time a standard breaker requires to clear). Also during the time the load breaker is being cleared a large transient will be created resulting in possible damaged equipment. In the event the faulted load breaker is not cleared, the UPS will shut down, due to extended overload, or the UPS input breaker will clear causing a power loss.
Genie is designed to identify an overload condition and clear the SDB in advance of a total load failure preventing damaging and/or dangerous short circuits and high current conditions.
Genie SDBs are designed to clear or open in less than one cycle, eliminating the "time window" (18 to 22 cycles of standard breakers), which allows the short circuit evolution of problems to being.
Genie SDBs intelligent design distinguishes the difference between normal inrush current for equipment and a short circuit or overload condition.
Genie SDBs are a simple plug-in design, for easy upgrade or replacement.
Communications port: Genie can incorporate a relay communication interface and alarms to allow for notification of an open SDB
Power protection: SPD protection from 200kA to 600kA surge current is available.
Remote Panel with Audible Alarm: Configured with a notification display and an alarm function to identify open SDB.
Compatibility: The Genie is designed specifically for Always On UPS products but can be utilized to support other manufactured UPS products.
