    The Power to Know

    Yourneed to know whatshappening with your facil-itys on-site power and

    distribution system. Thatincludes automatic transferswitches, generator paral-leling control switchgear,gensets, circuit breakers,paralleling bus, protectiverelays and other gear.

    Its not only to know, butto understand. To act. Tosolve issues when seconds


    Your need to know aboutequipment condition,operation and status ismore critical than ever.Essentially, to make surethat all equipment and

    Its all about the need to know...

    components are healthyand playing nice. Thatsespecially important as

    system complexity andsophistication increase.

    Knowing can help ensurepower reliability for criti-cal operations, and thuscontinuity of those opera-

    tions. To make sure whenquestions are asked, youhave answers.

    Now theres a way to getexactly the amount ofcommunication, monitor-ing and control capabilitiesyou want for your utilitysource and on-site powersystem.

    Drill down for a closer look - Each transfer switch,generator, breaker and any other power equip-ment has its own dedicated screens.

    Its the new ASCO Power-QuestPower Monitoringand Control family.

    The PowerQuest family isthe most comprehensivecommunication, monitor-ing and control solutionever offered by EmersonNetwork Power.It empowers you. It fulllsyour need to test, man-age loads, optimize thebus bar, remotely monitorand otherwise be aware ofthe status of your facility'sutility source and on-sitepower. You have both thePower to Know and thePower to Do.

    Whether you requirestandard monitoring andcontrol, or a comprehen-sive Critical Power Manage-ment System, PowerQuestcan satisfy your needs.

    A typical PowerQuestmonitoring overview screen

    Designing a communica-tions pathway between aPowerQuestsystem andon-site power equipment isstraightforward.

    ASCO 5150 and 5160 con-nectivity devices andASCO 5210 and 5220Power Managers connectdirectly to equipment viaModbus, Ethernet or beroptic cable.

    Modules and power man-

    agers typically are installedon or near the equipmentto which they are con-nected.

    The modules and powermanagers connect toASCO Monitoring Serversand building managementsystems via Ethernet orber optic cable.

    Monitoring servers can beinstalled near the equip-

    ment or remotely. Remotelocations range fromnearby engineering ofcesto sites around a singlecampus, multiple campus-

    es in a region, or buildings

    spread nationally, or evenglobally.

    The distances betweenmodules and power man-agers and the monitoringservers they connect to areimportant considerationsin designing a power com-munication, monitoringand control system.

    For example, to maintaingood communication, the

    distance for an ethernetover category 6 cableconnection should be nolonger than 300 ft. For beroptic cable, it's 6,500 ft.

    When distances for those

    ASCO 5160 RCUs (RemoteConnecitvity Units) exceedtheir respective limits,ASCO Remote ConnectivityUnits effectively extend thedistance.

    An example: A facilitymanager wants to connectPowerQuestto on-site pow-er equipment using thefacility's legacy Ethernetcommunications network.But, the distances be-tween modules and powermanagers and monitoringservers is 900 ft. Remoteconnectivity units daisy-chained at the 300 ft. and600 ft. marks will permitthe use of the legacy Ether-net network.

    Remote connectivity unitseffectively extend the dis-tances for ber optic cablenetworks as well.

    Web-based communica-tion satises connectivityrequirements regionally,nationally and globally.

    Sample schematics showtypical connectivity con-gurations.

    PowerQuestFacilitates Effective ConnectivityWith Multiple Communications Modalities



    Only PowerQuest Employs AES 128-bitEncryption to Protect On-site Power SystemsAgainst Unauthorized Data Access and Control

    Securing and protecting your on-sitepower system from unauthorized moni-toring and control is paramount.

    PowerQuest Power Monitoring andControl systems employ Advanced En-cryption Standard (AES 128-bit Encryp-tion) It's the same advanced encryptionstandard used by the National SecurityAgency to protect top secret informa-tion. In fact, AES 128-bit Encryption isthe encryption standard adopted by theentire Federal government.

    PowerQuest is the only on-site powermonitoring and control system outfit-ted with AES 128-bit Encryption. Thestandard is based on a cryptographicalgorithm that securely protects elec-tronic data. It's encryption and decryp-tion process is fast in both hardwareand software.

    Trust PowerQuest to secure and protectyour on-site power equipment fromunauthorized access.
