Miniature power supply units with optimized power consumption and extended functionality

05.10.2010
Siemens' Industry Automation Division has added new functions to its Logo!Power range of miniature power supply units. It has also improved the performance of these products, enhancing the operating efficiency across the entire load range and halving the standby power loss.

The new Logo!Power stabilized power supply units are compatible with their predecessor models in terms of installation and connection, and are designed particularly with small distribution boards in mind.


They feature a wide-range input of 100-240 V AC for alternating current networks, and now also 110-300 V DC for direct current networks. The new product variants with an output voltage of 5, 12, 15 or 24 V DC produce 30, 60 or 100 watts, depending on the model. The 12 V and 24 V variants are also specially designed to supply the Logo! logic module.

These power supply units can be used universally in industrial, residential and special-purpose construction, and are typically incorporated into machinery and control cabinets for applications in the low-end performance range, as well as small equipment and special devices.

With a depth of just 54, 72 or 90 millimeters, the flat Logo!Power units can be integrated flexibly into all conventional single-phase power supply networks. They feature a wide-range input without switching, and an individually adjustable output voltage. The operating temperature range starts at -20 and has been extended from +55 to +70 degrees Celsius. The startup behavior of the power supply units has also been optimized: a reserve capacity of 150 percent is available for starting capacitive loads. The units are wired simply in protection class II without a protective earthing conductor. For export, they have extensive international certificates, including ATEX, CE, cULus, FM and GL Shipping Approval.

The Siemens Industry Sector (Erlangen, Germany) is the worldwide leading supplier of environmentally friendly production, transportation, building and lighting technologies.

Im Focus: Why we need erasable MRI scans

New technology could allow an MRI contrast agent to 'blink off,' helping doctors diagnose disease

Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is a widely used medical tool for taking pictures of the insides of our body. One way to make MRI scans easier to read is...

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
