DC power systems make room for about 25% more data center essentials like servers and cooling equipment due to smaller, less complex systems that require fewer components.
The NEC standardized high-voltage DC power distribution with their Class 4 rating for fault-managed power systems, such as Cence HV, which intelligently stops power if a fault occurs.
Our fault-managed power system doesn't require breakers or mechanical switch gear; everything is solid state. Power transmitters are also centralized and hot-swappable.
A high-voltage power system that makes use of a structured cabling infrastructure, and shuts power off over 1000x faster than competing fault-managed power systems.
With hot-swappable transmitters, and a power system compatible with new and existing data centers, Cence HV allows you to easily keep up with increasing power demands.
With fewer required conversions and a more efficient power system, Cence HV generates less heat than an AC system, reducing data center cooling energy consumption.
Fault-management ensures a safe and standardized system, and the Cence App intelligently enables cloud monitoring, control, and automation of power usage.
Since DC power is compatible with batteries and solar, fault-managed power systems enable conversion-free, reliable power backup, and support sustainability goals.
There are two Cence product suites: Cence LV (low-voltage) and Cence HV (high-voltage). Cence LV can receive 4 types of power inputs: renewable energy, power from energy storage, AC power, and Digital Current™ from the Cence HV Transmitter. If either of them receive AC power, they make a highly efficient AC to DC conversion (up to 99% efficiency).
The Cence LV Hub has 8 power modules with 4 channels each (PM4s). Each of these channels sends up to 60V DC, or 100 W, to connected devices, such as LED lighting and our smart power splitters. In total, Cence LV can send up to 3200 W per power hub. Cence optimizes cable usage, and power yield, with daisy chaining.
The Cence HV Transmitter has 5 internal channels that each send up to 450V DC as Digital Current™. Our Digital Current™ technology is what makes our system a fault-managed power system (FMPS). The Cence receivers have integrated DC-DC converters that supply devices with appropriate voltages. Cence HV is ideal for projects with longer cable lengths that prioritize efficient distribution.
Cence HV, LV, smart power splitters (external devices to the LV Hub), receivers (external to the HV Transmitter), and wireless sensors, are all connected to a wireless mesh network. The wireless mesh network allows all connected devices (ex. LED lighting) to be monitored, controlled, automated and optimized via the Cence App.
