PCM8001 & PCM1602

DC Core Power Module

Core modules for use in power system designed specifically for the Telecom and Datacom industries. The PCM8001 and PCM1602 are 8kW and 16kW core modules that have all the basic elements of a DC power system. With the addition of AC and DC distribution and rectifier shelves any flexible arrangement of DC power system design can be catered for.




  • Modular design, simple to install and operate
  • Front/top access for ease of installation and maintenance
  • Compact, core power module contains ‘essential’ functions – controller, LVDs, shunt, 4 x rectifier slots or 8 x rectifier slots
  • Scalable design, factory configured for popular 150A and 300A applications
  • Up to three low voltage disconnects (LVDs) configurable for batteries and/or load
  • Constant power rectifiers to reduce battery recharge time
  • Additional flexible distribution modules (FDM) provide any mix of AC, DC distribution and protection
  • System configuration held in non-volatile memory within the core module allowing true plug and play of the ACMi1000HD controller
  • Remote monitoring options via modem or LAN (TCP/IP gateway, SNMP, email, Web,…)
  • Comprehensive system control functions
  • Comprehensive Battery management
  • Energy saving functionality with ecopx



The PCM core power system is available in two versions:

  • PCM8001 – 8kW/166A rectifier system
  • PCM1602 – 16kW/333A rectifier system

The PCM provides the heart of a DC power system suitable for many applications. Systems can be customised for specific applications, simply by adding flexible distribution modules as required. Just add AC breakers and SPDs and/or DC breakers according to your requirements. Flexible distribution modules (FDM) can be stacked for an almost infinite variety of solutions.
