Energy management and storage

Ultra specialises in compact, power-dense, low voltage sub-systems and controls for renewable energy applications. Ultra’s innovative fuel cells extend the functionality and reliability of remote applications, allowing equipment to perform reliably for longer periods of time.

Ultra’s energy control wireless networking solutions have been deployed in multiple buildings to provide analysis, modelling and prediction in every area of a facility; from metering applications to monitoring mechanical systems such as pumps, motors and fans.



Portable fuel cells

Ultra designs, tests and manufactures the future of portable power: solid oxide fuel cell technology. Ultra is committed to providing dependable, portable fuel cell power, using readily accessible fuel, which can be taken into the wild or into combat.

The Group’s solid oxide fuel cell power systems have been proven reliable in field-testing for military, leisure and emergency use. Ultra’s flexible fuel cell technology will provide the exact solution required.

Ultra’s ROAMIO Performer fuel cells provide extended, maintenance-free power for remote industrial use. The Performer P250i is the ideal back-up power source for critical applications. It integrates seamlessly with grid, generator, battery, wind or solar power to deliver the assurance needed that critical applications will run, uninterrupted, when other power sources fail.

Ultra’s ROAMIO Performer series extends the functionality and reliability of remote applications. Cameras, sensors and surveillance equipment perform reliably, for longer periods of time. Communications systems remain up and running, even when the grid goes down. Fuel cells keep traffic systems, from signs to cameras to lights, working 24-7, in any weather.

From powering unmanned systems to providing portable power to soldiers, Ultra is creating a new reality in how soldiers power mission-critical systems. Ultra’s ROAMIO range of fuel cells is fuelled by globally available propane and delivers lightweight, portable power in the most austere and dangerous locations. Enabling longer flight times, longer missions and reduced weight burden, these fuel cells deliver better results.

Gas turbine electric start

Ultra is a pioneer and world leader in the design and supply of electric starting systems for industrial and marine gas turbines for both oil and gas installations and power generation. The Group’s Gas Turbine Electric Start (GTES) systems replace the traditional hydraulic or pneumatic start systems and deliver significant improvements in efficiency and reliability as well as reduced through life costs. It is a simple, clutch-less system induction motor that spins constantly with the engine, therefore can generate power as required for remote locations in ‘black start’ scenarios. Proven over hundreds of thousands of installed running hours all over the globe, Ultra’s GTES is compact and light, providing a much lower design and installation burden.

Power conversion

Ultra’s solid-state electrical power supplies are more flexible and tolerant of damage than hydraulic systems, as well as being more reliable, smaller and lighter than rotary converters. Ultra has excelled in its ability to package powerdense static converters, whilst at the same time maintaining the required structural integrity, thermal performance and ease of maintenance. The rugged reliability of Ultra’s range of power converters, originally designed for the harsh military environment, is now available for renewable energy applications. Key aspects of this fit-for-purpose, highly modular design include EMC compliance, climatic rating and mechanical construction to withstand severe shock and vibration, operational reliability and a greater flexibility to meet non-standard requirements.

Multi-channel analogue/digital multiplexers

Ultra provides fibre-optic multiplexers for data transmission on wind turbines. These multiplexers can send up to sixteen channels of bi-directional electrical information over a pair of fibre-optic cables. The base unit connects to the fibre-optic cable and provides visual indication of fibre link status. Information is received from up to four input modules which can be cascaded.

Each module has a partner module installed on the corresponding base unit. An integrated backplane allows for communications between modules with no external inter-modular connection. No programming is required.
