MediaMatrix, a division of Peavey Electronics Corporation, recently introduced the PCU 2100, a load-sharing redundant power supply designed for ControlMatrix™ field paging components.

The PCU 2100 is designed to provide redundant or passive operation from its two independent power supply modules, or "banks." Each bank is capable of simultaneously powering up to eight ControlMatrix PCU Series stations and ten remote control panels, and each is a fully independent power supply, internally protected against load faults. Additional protection is provided for each output circuit, and an auto reset enables users to restore power to protected output loads.

The PCU 2100 can operate in either redundant mode or dual mode. A rear-panel switch allows the system integrator to determine the operating mode, while a front-panel LED provides visual status for the user. When operating in redundant mode, the PCU 2100 provides fully supervised, redundant power supply outputs for up to eight PCU Series paging stations and up to ten remote control panels. In this mode, any primary supply module failure will automatically engage the second supply module without interruption. In dual mode, the second bank can be fully loaded, doubling the capacity of the PCU 2100 for applications that do not require redundancy. Each bank includes a Form C fault output connector for interfacing external alarms or signaling equipment. Additional connectivity is provided for terminating the data lines from ControlMatrix devices. Each bank includes a wiring bus that allows for easy interface to head-end equipment.

The PCU 2100 features rear-panel connections for all supply circuits. Removable Euro connectors provide easy termination and service for all outputs and fault contacts. A removable IEC line connector is provided for the AC line. The PCU 2100 is available for domestic (120VAC) and export (230/240VAC) use.
