At CCL Power, we can help you to assess your scenario and see if you may benefit from integrating a Powerplus into your setup. We do not believe in selling a product for the sake of selling, we have to be sure of what we are selling and why we are doing so. We have a great team of engineers who are on hand and ready to understand your load profile and system needs. If you have a power requirement then why not get in touch?
How much fuel will Powerplus save me?
This depends your load profile. The longer that your generator is turned off, the more fuel that can be saved. In general, the range of saving can go from several % to almost 100%, however the average saving could see anywhere between 30-50% of fuel costs. On top of that, if your load profile is fairly consistent; the saving is fairly consistent and predictable too!
How do I make sure that the batteries in Powerplus don’t go flat?
The Powerplus will essentially manage itself. It does this by automatically switching back to generator power when the batteries drop below a certain state of charge (SOC). There is also control called Power Assist in the unit to ensure that the generator is called upon when power requirements are just a bit too high for the Powerplus to sustain for a long period of time which in turn increases the lifetime of the batteries. The Powerplus will manage its own charging regime when connected to the generator so there is no need to worry about that. Care should be taken however when the Powerplus is left idle as the internal self-discharge of the batteries could mean that the batteries eventually flatten themselves over a long period of time.
Can the Powerplus be left outside?
Powerplus is designed to be outside, all internal componentry and moisture sensitive equipment is adequately sited and protected against water ingression. This being said, it is recommended that if there is no need for the unit to be left outside, then please do relocate to a sheltered location.
How long will the Powerplus batteries last?
This is very similar to understanding how much fuel you may save. To understand this, an assessment has to be made on the current load profile of the site. This allows you to understand how much daily loading can be satisfied solely by the Powerplus and what part of the profile needs the generator. Bear in mind that the load profile will change slightly with Powerplus integration as the generator will also have to charge the batteries.
Will Powerplus replace my generator?
Although it is not designed to be a direct replacement for a conventional generator, if alternative sources can be implemented and the load profile is such that the Powerplus can suffice 100% of this, then a generator could be considered surplus to requirements. We would always recommend however keeping a small generator on-site, just in case the alternative sources are not enough to keep the Powerplus charged.
Who is Powerplus for?
Any area were there is a low level power requirement. We have designed the Powerplus so that it can be integrated worldwide into the; Construction Sectors, Event Sectors, Remote/Off-Grid Power Sectors, Domestic/Light Commercial Sectors, etc. Currently the models are 230Vac output at 50hz, although we are developing 110Vac at 60hz and split-phase models.
