AL 175NT

Monitoring & Control Unit

The Eltek range of monitoring and control units has been specifically developed
to provide indication and management for DC standby power systems used in
telecommunications and industrial applications. A comprehensive range of
features is achieved through the utilisation of microprocessor technology.

AL 175NT is a plug in monitoring and control unit which is used in Eltek‘s small-
and medium- range power systems. This range includes MPSU 200, MPSU 4000,
MPSU 5000, MPSU 6000, PRS 700 and Flatpack.

AL 175NT offers features like

• Front panel LCD and keypad for on-site service (local access)
• RS-232 interface for PC connection or remote monitoring/control via
modem or SNMP
• 6 Configurable alarm relay outputs for traditional remote monitoring
• Battery monitoring and testing without site attendance
• Temperature Compensated Charge Voltage for increased battery
lifetime
• Hot Plug-In
• Modem Call-back functionality
• Password protected operator access levels
• Alarm/event log with time and date (up to 256 events)

SPECIFICATIONS
Using front keypads and display Input Voltage: 242072.232: 20-60 VDC
AL 175NT uses menu driven software to provide a 242072.236: 40-80 VDC
user-friendly interface for local operation via a keypad Dimensions: 70.7 (14TE) x 133
and an LCD. x 169mm WxHxD
In normal operation, the front LCD will display the (2.8 x 0.25 x 6.7”)
output voltage, battery current, rectifier current and Weight: 1kg (2.2lbs.)
load current.

If any alarm is activated, a red LED is lit in the front


panel, the alarm text appears in the LCD and the
corresponding alarm relay is activated.
