EAST GREENWICH, Rhode Island, Dec. 1, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VoltServer™ Announces Recipient of Frost & Sullivan’s 2022 North American Innovation Leadership Award for Smart Power Distribution Technology for Excellence in the Power Distribution Industry . The award clearly recognizes the expertise and excellence of Digital Electricity™ solutions.
Frost & Sullivan’s Technology Innovation Leadership Award recognizes companies that introduce the best foundational technologies to achieve superior product and customer success and drive future business value. According to the report, VoltServer excels in many criteria in the field of smart power distribution.
“Digital power can deliver thousands of watts of power, but with Power over Ethernet (PoE) wiring; therefore, the VoltServer’s digital power is well positioned to fill the gap between the traditional extremes of high-power, high-risk AC power and low power, secure PoE,” said Paritosh Doshi, senior research analyst. “Frost & Sullivan was impressed with the VoltServer’s ability, through its digital power system, to distribute high power over long distances while maintaining security comparable to limited distribution networks. The application diversity and ability to deliver a high-performance and cost-effective solution Capability, where traditional solutions fail, is the main driver behind VoltServer’s success.”
NFPA 70 National Electrical Code (NEC), adopted in all 50 states, is the benchmark for safe electrical design, installation and inspection to protect people and property from electrical hazards. To clearly distinguish between wiring for “ordinary” circuits and specialized circuits with limited power, the NEC classifies circuits according to their electrical purpose and how they are applied. The 2023 edition adopts a new circuit classification under section 726. Class 4 circuits include Fault Managed Power Systems (FMPS). This new technology limits fault power in circuits by monitoring the fault and controlling the power delivered to the fault based on the risks associated with electric shock and fire hazards.
VoltServer’s digital power platform uses patented packet power transfer technology to deliver up to 2,000 watts of remote power over distances of up to 2 kilometers. VoltServer has deployed tens of thousands of systems using this technology based on existing electrical codes, supporting applications in wireless communications, smart buildings and controlled environment agriculture (CEA). Following the introduction of category 4, digital power technology will be one of the first technologies listed in this new category.
Frost & Sullivan believes that VoltServer’s aggressive efforts and favorable regulatory policies will likely drive the company’s short-term growth, while its R&D will ensure its long-term high-growth trajectory.
VoltServer is a venture-backed technology leader reinventing the way electrical energy is distributed. VoltServer’s patented Digital Electricity™ solution delivers secure power when, where and how it is needed. Digital power can be transmitted using off-the-shelf data cables at significantly lower cost and with greater speed, power, distance, efficiency, intelligence and flexibility than competing electrical devices.
