Vicor teams for Digital Electricity rollout
Power conversion technology from Vicor is key for VoltServer's Digital Electricity that uses standard data cables to deliver significant power safely across long distances

Power component supplier Vicor has been working with VoltServer in the US on a new approach to energy delivery with a patented technique called Digital Electricity. The technology that safely transmits up to 2kW of power across long distances of up to 2km using low-cost, off-the-shelf data cables.

To date, VoltServer has been deployed in hundreds of venues including stadiums, airports, convention centers, office towers, hotels, condominiums, hospitals and indoor gardens, powering 4G, 5G and Wi-Fi wireless communications, LED lighting and IoT applications

Digital Electricity is a line powering system for powering remote equipment from a centralized location over structured copper cable. It safely runs high-voltage power over lightweight data cable and delivers low current downstream to power loads. Similar to power-over-ethernet (PoE), this enables VoltServer to transport both digital data and power in a single hybrid cabling infrastructure, making it much easier and more economical to install than conventional 110/220 electrical systems.

The technique takes conventional electricity and breaks it into small pulses, or “energy packets.” Each packet is sent to a receiver from a transmitter that contains local, embedded processing. Each energy packet is analyzed using a digital signal processing engine to determine that power is being precisely and safely distributed. If a fault is detected, the next energy packet is not sent. Each packet contains only a very small amount of energy, so individually they are not harmful to people, animals, systems or buildings. The receiver converts Digital Electricity back into analog AC or DC to power local loads.
