Taiwanese company Delta has opened an interactive digital exhibition to launch products for 5G and IoT edge computing, e-mobility and smart manufacturing.
 
These include the SmartNode modularised data centre for implementation of energy-efficient edge computing data centres; the UFC200 fast EV charger, a 200kW system for charging point operators and fleet managers; and DiaStudio Smart Machine Suite, a digital platform that enables efficient machine development and configuration.
 
“During the current pandemic environment, we stay ahead of the curve by providing an innovative and sustainable platform to present our pioneering energy-efficient infrastructure technologies,” said Dalip Sharma (pictured), president and general manager of Delta for Emea. “In fact, our new modularised data centre, ultra-fast EV charger and digital system for smart manufacturing echo Delta’s mission to provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow by being able to meet the demands of our customers in an ever-changing world.”
 
With the growth of data and the need for low latency, demand is increasing for quick and easy to install pre-fabricated, all-in-one edge data centres. The SmartNode tiers II and III data centres enable rapid scaling of edge computing capacity, providing the infrastructure for IoT and other applications that demand low latency, such as autonomous driving, remote healthcare and OTT media services.
 
EVs, e-trucks and e-buses will demand access to faster and more powerful charging systems. The 200kW capacity of the UFC200 is for charging point operators and fleet managers. The output can be split to deliver 100kW DC charging to two vehicles simultaneously. It is equipped with an all-weather, 17.8cm LCD information display screen and touch pad. It also supports RFID and payment cards functions.
 
The DiaStudio lets users efficiently develop a machinery system, from product selection, programming to exporting on a unified platform. It is composed of three pieces of software: DiaSelector is an application allowing users to select specific components of the machine system; DiaDesigner picks up to complete programing, configuration and commission on an integrated engineering platform; and DiaScreen lets users share tags between programmable logic controllers and human machine interfaces or text panels to complete the operation interface.
 
Visitors are invited to seek out four small trees carefully hidden across the exhibition. Once all four have been collected, visitors can convert them into one actual tree, planted by Delta in collaboration with One Tree Planted. Visitors can explore Delta’s clean and energy-efficient products in an innovative approach and cooperate with Delta to make the environment better for tomorrow. 
 
Delta, founded in 1971, specialises in switching power supplies and thermal management products with a portfolio of smart energy-saving systems in the fields of industrial automation, building automation, telecom power, data centre infrastructure, EV charging, renewable energy, energy storage and display.
