Introduction
Description
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system is a positive ground, –48 V dc
nominal, 150 A capacity power system consisting of a control and
distribution panel and power shelves which support plug-in rectifiers
mounted on a relay rack type framework.
An intelligent controller/monitor (RPM1000C), a temperature
compensation module ( Helios TCM/48 ), a low voltage disconnect (LVD)
feature, a battery disconnect panel, a supplementary battery return busbar,
and battery shelves for rack mounted batteries are available as options.
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system is a front access power system.
All installation, operation and maintenance activities can be done from the
front and top of the power system. A minimum space of 3 inches ( 7.6
cm ) is required behind the NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system for
ventilation.
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system is intended for non-seismic and
seismic applications up to zone 4 (Bellcore) depending upon the relay rack
selected.
• The standard 7-foot ( 2.13 m ) rack is for non-seismic applications.
• The earthquake braced 7-foot ( 2.13 m ) rack is for top braced
applications.
• The 4-foot ( 1.22 m ) and 7-foot ( 2.13 m ) seismic racks are for
seismic freestanding applications (no top support required).
• The 25.36-inch ( 64.41 cm ) rack is for wall mount applications.
All of the various panels used in making the System 200/48 can be
mounted on frameworks having mounting holes with either 1.0-inch or
1.75-inch spacing.
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system provides a variety of
monitoring, alarm and control features, such as low voltage alarm, fuse
and circuit breaker alarms, rectifier failure alarms, equalize, and an
optional low voltage disconnect (LVD).

16 Introduction
Distribution is achieved through the circuit breakers and fuses on the
control and distribution panel.
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 utilizes 15, 25, or 50 A rectifiers connected in
parallel as building blocks to reach the maximum capacity of 150 A. The
rectifiers operate from a 208 V or 240 V single phase 50/60 Hz AC source,
except for the 15 A rectifier which operates from a 115 V ac source.
Equipment applications
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system is designed to operate with any
telecommunication system requiring up to 150 A capacity.
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 power system can be used to provide power to
the following products: OC-12, OC-48, DMS-1U, Access Node, DMS-100
remotes installed in huts, controlled environment vaults (CEVs) and
customer premise equipment (CPE).
In many applications, a consistent single point ground topology should be
maintained for all associated equipment. The NT6C28C(x) MFA150
power system complies with the requirements for single point grounding.
Mounting configurations
The NT6C28C(x) MFA150 can be configured in many ways to meet
specific customer requirements. Typical examples are shown in Figures 1
and 2.

Operation 47
Rectifiers
The rectifiers provide isolated, filtered and regulated DC power, from a
single-phase AC source, for powering the load while charging a positive
grounded battery.
The output is adjustable over a range of –46 to –59.5 V for floating a 23or 24-cell battery string.
The rectifiers are equipped with AC input and DC output circuit breakers,
a digital ammeter, potentiometers for adjusting the thresholds, and LED
indicators for alarm indications.
The rectifiers use high frequency switching technology and are forced aircooled.
Refer to the appropriate rectifier user manual listed in Appendix D for
detailed operation information on the MR15 rectifier, the MPR25 rectifier,
the Helios Rectifier 25/48, and the Helios Rectifier 50/48.
RPM1000C ( optional )
The RPM1000C is a microprocessor-based controller/monitor which, in
addition to providing the basic controller functions found on analog
controllers, provides advanced control and monitoring functions. It can
monitor and record the operational data of the power systems that can be
locally or remotely accessed or retrieved for further analysis. The recorded
data can be accessed by means of the push-button or the RS-232 port on
the front panel, or remotely through the modem link.
If an RPM1000C was supplied with your system, refer to the appropriate
user manual listed in Appendix D for the detailed operational
characteristics.
Helios TCM/48 temperature compensation module ( optional )
The temperature compensation module ( Helios TCM/48 ) is used to
control the output voltage of the rectifiers according to the variations in the
temperature input. When the temperature rises, the Helios TCM/48
modifies the rectifier reference voltage to reduce it according to a preprogrammed algorithm.
The Helios TCM/48 controls the battery voltage according to the
temperature to extend the life of the batteries and to eliminate the
possibility of a thermal runaway condition.
If a Helios TCM/48 was supplied with your system, refer to the
appropriate user manual listed in Appendix D for the detailed operational
characteristics.

The NT6C18EA/EB battery disconnect panel is used to manually
disconnect the battery strings (up to two) from the power system for
maintenance purpose. When a circuit breaker is in the OFF position, the
FA indicator on the panel itself is lit, and an alarm signal (FA) is sent to
the control and distribution panel for further extension to the external
alarm circuits.
NT6C18FA/FD supplementary battery return busbar ( optional )
The NT6C18FA/FD supplementary battery return busbar is mounted at the
top of the MFA150 framework and is used to provide external battery
return connecting points from the control and distribution panel. It
provides easier access for the battery return connections, it permits the use
of larger cables and lugs, and it provides more space inside the control and
distribution panel.
