The Powr2 POWRBANK is a portable power supply that integrates with diesel generators to optimize load capacities. Using advanced lithium ion battery technology and automatic load level sensing, the POWRBANK can switch power flow as needed between the generator and the POWRBANK.
Operation of the diesel generator and Powr2 power supply is based on specific needs and jobsite parameters by selecting from three run modes on the POWRBANK. One of the modes is the timer, which allows operators to set the generator for constant running at times when power usage is highest. Lower power draw periods will be programmed for POWRBANK operation, running the site on stored energy.
When the situation permits, the POWRBANK can be set as the primary power source and the generator will only kick in to recharge the unit’s battery. This is ideal in situations where noise is an issue or where a generator is much larger than the needed power draw.
The final mode, load sensing, enables the system to monitor power levels and automatically switch between generator and POWRBANK as the power draw demands. This mode is ideal for those applications where the power need fluctuates significantly throughout the day. This provides an uninterrupted power supply even if the generator fails
Pairing the unit with electricity-producing systems also enables the storage and use of alternative energy sources.
Six POWRBANK models are available with outputs from 3.7 to 60 kilovolt amps. Storage ranges from 7.5 to 120 kilowatt hours.
All models feature Powr2's Node Energy Control Module (ECM) 7-in. touch screen which retrieves data from all connected devices. The system displays the information on the screen and uses it to inform which energy source to use and which loads to prioritize.
Powr2 also offers its Prism EMS (Energy Management System) software for reporting and business intelligence, remote asset management and customer billing. The POWRBANK range features remote generator start and remote communication, including GPS location tracking.
