  • CAN bus for parallel operation for robust digital communication
  • 12-puls operation with active load sharing (option)
  • Advanced filter- and PID control scheme for best diesel generator compliance
  • The unique feature of fully segregated, independent and redundant measuring facility (shunt and/or CT) including mains power meter
  • Independent microprocessor-based diode voltage dropper (DVR) controller
  • On-board earth fault monitor with leakage current indication
  • PT1000 based real-time temperature display and monitoring

Easy Operation & Control

The front panel of the BDTe facilitates a comprehensive and flexible human-machine interface. An easy and intuitive operation and control of the system is achieved through:

  • Colour coded and animated LED mimic flow diagram adapted to the actual configuration
  • Comprehensive 8-line LCD display
  • Multi-language support
  • 12 Programmable alarms and indications
  • Intelligent real-time event recorder for 2500 events
  • Continuous battery availability (health) check

  • Front access to key components (fans, capacitors, ) to allow fast and cost-effective maintenance

Easy Accessible Interface & Intuitive Communication

State of the art communication software and gateway supports the monitoring and control of the BDTe. Fast and easy accessibility and intuitive communication are achieved through:

  • RS232/RS485 serial interface with MODBUS protocol
  • Modbus TCP/IP interface
  • PROFIBUS interface
  • IEC61850 interface
  • TCP/IP network interface with onboard web-server
  • USB-stick interface for event-log and configuration dump (readout)
  • Remote display
  • Programmable relays cards
  • Digital inputs (for EPO, generator operation etc.)
  • Programmable analogue inputs (battery temperature, etc.) with clear text messages

Reliable Battery Use and Management

Battery monitoring and management is a key factor for a reliable and durable power backup. The Statron BDTe has class-leading built-in features, such as:

  • Multi string battery current monitoring
