Timed Distribution Unit >
Firefly’s Timed Distribution Unit or TDU is a must-have addition to temporary power installations, for rental operators and end users alike. Hybrid Energy Storage Systems are a well established tool to save fuel, CO2, localised pollution and noise. However, an efficient power supply is only part of the equation. The key to maximising the benefit of using Firefly’s Cygnus® Energy Storage System is improving energy efficiency on site. This is not always easy to do: lights and heaters are left on overnight, windows and doors are propped open whilst the heating is running. Switching to energy efficient consumers such as LED lights; retro-fitting timers, PIR movement sensors and thermostats; improving cabin insulation and encouraging staff to be more aware can help. But these are not always possible, and even with these – there is always further room for improvement.
Firefly’s TDU provides the operator with the confidence that energy efficiency and CO2 reduction objectives can be achieved. The TDU takes the guess work out of saving energy and helps service providers and users predict power requirements more accurately. In a typical set up, that uses a diesel generator and Cygnus® Energy Storage System, the TDU increases the overall savings on site by eliminating the supply of energy to unused consumers. Overnight loads are kept to an absolute minimum by using the user defined timer function in the TDU. Each of the six 32 A single phase outputs can be individually controlled to create a finely tuned power distribution set up. For convenience, a pass-through 63 A three phase output connector is also provided.
In the event that work patterns change, the TDU is easily re-programmed via its integrated TFT touch screen. Alternatively, the manual over-ride function means that temporary extensions to work hours can be met: no re-programming required. Critically, the time limit on the manual over-ride ensures that power supply is automatically controlled, ensuring energy efficiencies are still achieved.
The TDU has been designed to meet the same robust rental specification standards that customers of the Cygnus® range already expect. Fork pockets and lifting ring keep logistics simple and a seam welded 2 mm powder coated steel canopy is combined with a galvanised steel stand to keep the TDU safely clear of adverse ground conditions.
TDU is the smart way to improve energy savings.
