Cooper Power Systems, LLC Key Developments

Cooper Power Systems Launches an Update to its CBC-8000 Capacitor Bank Control

Eaton Corporation has announced that its Cooper Power Systems division is launching an update to its CBC-8000 capacitor bank control, by integrating firmware version 1.2.0 with ProView NXG software. The new firmware updates and configuration software provide end users with advanced monitoring and reporting functionality, including phase-to-phase voltage unbalance reporting, communications logging, and capacitor switch operation confirmation for utility applications. Available on all new CBC-8000 orders, the updates include capacitor switch operation confirmation. This advanced algorithm confirms that each of the capacitor banks and switches is operating correctly and logs or reports any phase A, B or C switch operation failures. To help improve product performance and life, the new firmware also includes phase-to-phase voltage unbalance to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard C84.1-2011. This allows utilities to monitor against any voltage unbalance that may contribute to premature equipment aging, power supply ripples and severe insulation degradation due to heat generation, as well as decrease mean time between failures on all affected equipment. In addition, the control now offers a communications archive for users to assess and trouble shoot communications problems. This archive is designed to eliminate the need to deploy special field communications scanners which could save expensive and laborious man-hours of trouble shooting field preparation. The firmware release includes numerous other enhancements designed to improve customer setup and satisfaction. In addition, software and firmware updates for existing controls customers are now available.

Eaton's Cooper Power Systems Division Launches a New SPEAR Recloser Solution

Eaton announced that its Cooper Power Systems division has launched a new SPEAR recloser solution. This newest single-phase reliability product provides the industry with a dependable, cost-effective Smart Grid device to automate single-phase circuits up to 38 kilovolts (kV) and meet critical power requirements. This intelligent recloser and control package boasts full system protection, automation, metering and data acquisition, making it an ideal solution for multiple grid applications. Utilizing the comprehensive, user friendly ProView NXGTM software platform, the SPEAR control hosts protection functionality and time-current curves flexibility to maximize system coordination and reduce customer outages. Another significant benefit of the SPEAR recloser is its increased application flexibility. Complete with a separate regulated power supply, the control is automation-ready for the end-users' choice of radio. The digital communications performance can also be tailored with the user-configurable mapping of protocol Distributed Network Protocol 3 (DNP3). The design of the gas- and oil-free SPEAR product is based on field-proven NOVATM recloser technology. The encapsulated axial-magnetic vacuum interrupter and lightweight, solid cycloaliphatic-epoxy construction makes the SPEAR recloser a durable, flexible solution for demanding application requirements. The innovative, compact, low power solution also is designed to improve customer reliability, lower life-cycle and maintenance costs, decrease environmental impacts, and reduce installation time.
