and Southern Manufacturing have jointly launched the Clary SP Commander 560 for power management and protection of uninterruptible power systems (UPS) cabinets.
The Clary Commander 560 is a slim 1U system boasting power conditioning and back-up in addition to remote power management and monitoring of up to eight ITS devices in the ITS cabinet. The Commander 560 – on display at the booths of both companies - merges the features of Southern Manufacturing’s successful ITS Commander with Clary’s on-line double conversion UPS technology.
Clary says that the system’s pure sine-wave output ensures the delivery of clean and fully conditioned power to the ITS cabinet. Extended operation in the event of power loss is provided with optional batteries. Critical ITS devices are protected from power surges, spikes, sags, noise and other power anomalies. At the same time, the IP-addressable SP Commander 560 gives agencies control of the cabinet remotely through a web interface to allow technicians to reboot and power-up devices individually.
Rebooting frequently solves equipment lock-up and reduces costly maintenance calls. The monitoring capabilities of the SP Commander also provide agencies with notifications of cabinet status and fault conditions in real-time, as well as a log for analysis and documentation.
Southern Manufacturing says the ITS Commander previously relied on a separate line-interactive BBS. With this new system it provides more complete on-line power protection and saves 2U to 3U of rack space in the cabinet.
Clary Corporation is a manufacturer of Uninterruptible Power Systems for Intelligent Traffic Systems and Traffic Signal applications. Southern Manufacturing specialises in enclosures and signage for ITS and Traffic.
