Product Certification, Standards & Applications

Staticon

Staticon Ltd. designs and manufactures DC and AC power supply equipment in accordance with product safety authorities, well-established industry standards and recommended application engineering practices.

Product Certification

All Staticon products are CSA (Canadian Standards Association) certified. The CSA is the Canadian product safety authority for electrical equipment and is the author of the Canadian Electrical Code. Staticon CSA product certification falls under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code. CSA standards govern the safety related aspects of product design and testing.

DC & AC Products

All Staticon stationary DC, motive power DC and stationary AC power equipment products are CSA certified to standards:

  • CSA C22.2 No. 107.1, General Use Power Supplies or CSA C22.2 No. 107.2, Battery Chargers

Product Design & Testing Standards

Recommended industry standards are de-facto product design, testing and applications engineering standards which are well known and most often referenced by end-users, their procurement specialists and / or their retained consulting engineers. The purpose of these well-documented standards is to create generally recognized product conformity and acceptance across industries to enable end-users to efficiently become familiar with and purchase such products. Staticon products are generally in conformance with the following standards with minor exceptions usually concerning special testing or items exceeding CSA requirements.

Station Chargers

Staticon stationary rectifier / charger products are generally in conformance with:

  • NEMA PE 5, Utility Type Battery Chargers

Telecom Rectifiers

Staticon telecom rectifiers are generally in conformance with:

  • NEMA PE 7, Communications Type Battery Chargers

AC UPS Systems

Staticon inverters, inverter systems, UPS systems, AC line conditioners and transfer switches are generally in conformance with IEC 62040-3, Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS) – Part 3: Method of specifying the performance and test requirements

DC & AC Power Systems Application Engineering Practices

Recommended applications engineering practices include system sizing, configuration, annunciation and protection practices which are well known and most often referenced by end-users, their project engineers and / or their retained consultants. The purpose of these well-documented practices is to enable project engineers, sales engineers and other applications people to properly specify and configure project-specific, backup and auxiliary power systems. Staticon power systems application practices generally conform to these practices.

Station DC Systems

Staticon DC power systems are configured and designed in conformance with the following recommended practices:

  • IEEE Std 946, Recommended Practice for the Design of DC Auxiliary Power Systems for Generating Stations
  • IEEE Std 485, Recommended Practice for Sizing Lead-Acid Batteries for Stationary Applications
  • IEEE Std 1115, Recommended Practice for Sizing Nickel-Cadmium Batteries for Stationary Applications
  • IEEE Std 1189, Guide for Selection of Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) Batteries for Stationary Applications
  • IEEE Std 1375, Guide for the Protection of Stationary Battery Systems

     

Station AC Systems

Staticon inverters, inverter systems, UPS systems, AC line conditioners and transfer switches are configured and designed in conformance with the relevant sections of the following recommended practices:

  • IEEE Std 446, Recommended Practice for Emergency and Standby Power Systems for Industrial and Commercial Applications
  • IEEE Std 1184, Guide for Batteries for Uninterruptible Power Supply Systems
