Standby Power Solutions

PB Design’s Uninterruptable DC supplies have long been trusted for use in Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) applications. We supply switch trippers, SCADA back-up systems and intertrippers from 2A up to 300A.

Worry Free Installation

For Independent Connection Providers (ICP) we offer worry free installation.

  • Design to the DNO specification.
  • Supplied as part of the DNO framework agreement.
  • Products already known and respected by the end user.
  • No product pre-approval required.
  • Full detail drawings available.

BlackStart Controller

In 2014, PB Design introduced the BlackStart Controller, a smart battery disconnector. This allowed the DNOs to meet the 72 hours autonomy for their switch trippers without significantly increasing battery size. The BlackStart is available as a wall-mount option to retrofit an existing switch tripper, or integrated into our 19″ rack mounted cubicles. BlackStart is available to protect either single or dual battery strings.

  • Auto disconnect switch tripper battery in the event of a mains failure.
  • Reconnect via SCADA signal.
  • Single or dual string.
  • Reduces the lifetime total cost of ownership.
