SABRE Series

Product Information

SABRE Series are 3kVA to 9kVA hot swap inverter systems that operate from a 48VDC (40.5-58V range) input and produce either 120VAC or 230VAC nominal output.

The low distortion 50 or 60Hz sine wave is produced using an advanced DSP controlled Architecture which achieve better than 89% efficiency and 10.5VA per cubic inch power density.

SABRE Series pre-configured 3kVA to 9kVA hot swap inverter systems include a Controller and Static Transfer Switch with optional Power Distribution and Maintenance By-Pass facilities.

These 3kVA to 9kVA hot swap inverter systems include remote Communications to a PC is provided USB, RS232 or RS485 serial connections.  SNMP alarm traps delivered over an Ethernet TPC/IP connection are also provided as standard.

NOTES:
All models include Static Transfer Switch Module, Controller Module and Communications with SNMP Alarm Trapping.
Inverter modules must be ordered separately based on output voltage and total system capacity required. Module types may not be mixed in the same system.
120VAC inverters are pre-programmed to 60Hz, 230VAC inverters are pre-programmed to 50Hz. These settings can be changed from the front panel of the controller or remotely using the WINpower client application.

IMPORTANT NOTE – ALL SABRE IX SYSTEMS ARE SHIPPED AS “MID-MOUNT” ASSEMBLIES.
FLUSH-MOUNT IS AVAILABLE, THOUGH NOT RECOMMENDED.
