Vicor to Participate in 400 VDC Ecosystem Demonstration at INTELEC 2014

High Voltage DC (HVDC) power distribution offers huge potential savings in the data center. However if all the potential benefits are to be realized, equipment from a large number of manufacturers must interoperate efficiently. At INTELEC (International Telecommunications Energy Conference) 2014, which will be held in Vancouver, Canada from September 28 to October 2, Vicor will join with other industry leaders to showcase a complete 400 VDC ecosystem in booth #201. The demonstration will include data center and telecom leaders such as Anderson Power Products (APP), Emerson Network Power, IBM and Universal Electric Corporation....

Infographic: HVDC Covers a Wide Range of Voltages

High Voltage DC (HVDC) power distribution is bringing higher efficiency and simpler power chains to a wide range of applications. Confusingly, however, the voltage used depends on the application: there is no single HVDC standard. Take a look at our infographic below to find out about the wide range of voltages used, and how this compares with AC and low voltage DC power systems.
