The NetSure 8000 series high-density power systems offer the increased flexibility of a cabled plant in centralized or distributed architecture systems. 5800 watt rectifiers deliver up to 16,800 amps of power at -48 VDC. Individual power and distribution bays may be configured to meet any application requirement. These NetSure systems are designed to support wireless and wireline applications including, central offices, MTSOs, data centers and head-ends.

The high capacity, modular NetSure 8100DB delivers effective secondary load distribution with increased visibility and detailed understanding of all loads in your core facility.


The NetSure 8100DB distribution bay features high capacity, modularity, and simplified installation. These features provide effective secondary load distribution and protection for multiple -48 VDC feeds up to 640 amps (800 amps 20% derated) . Equipped with an advanced controller from Vertiv, optional Intelligent Load Management (ILM) enables you to visualize load location, power performance, and distribution inefficiencies in order to optimize the DC power system, control cooling, and avoid overload.

The NetSure 8100DB consists of a Zone 4 welded framework, with either six or eight panels and top or bottom feed/ distribution. Each panel holds up to 168 fuse or circuit breaker positions per bay. Each bay may be configured for 2, 4, 6 or 8 busses. A wide variety of options are available including, internal ground bars with a paralleling feature that permits multiple panels to be tied together, and transient voltage surge suppression. The universal return bars can be mounted to overhead framing or a cable rack.

The bay is now available in

7' H x 30" W x 16" D (2.13 m x 76.2 cm x 38.1 cm)

or a larger option:

7' H x 30" W x 24" D (2.13 m x 76.2 cm x 60.96 cm)


The NetSure 8100DB Series is designed for centralized power applications where secondary distribution is needed. These bays are ideal for colocation and core facilities including cable headends, MTSOs and MSOs. They are also well suited for applications requiring effective secondary load distribution and protection of power plants up to 640 amp capacity per load.

Distribution Modules
The distribution modules are factory configurable with one or more of the available fuseholders or circuit breakers, and can be populated in varying combinations. See the “6 Panel” and “8 Panel” charts to the right for options.

Extended Metering
The meter panel provides monitoring of two current thresholds, two voltage thresholds and a fuse alarm on each panel. The voltage and current values are now visible via the local color display. Optional Intelligent Load Management (ILM) monitors all currents, identifying alarms on the individual circuit breakers within that unit. Eight programmable relays are provided that may be programmed to any or all of the alarm conditions. Alarms may be sent over Modbus or SNMP and thresholds are remotely set via web pages, and all bus designations are user configurable. Four GMT fuse positions are provided for remote ABS loads as well as individual GMT fuses on feeds to the meter and alarm panels, eliminating the need for inline fuses used in previous models. Options allow the bay to be ABS sourced internally or remotely.

Extended Metering
