Powerful standard 24V power supply for three-phase networks

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its Sitop smart series of power supplies with a 24V unit with 3-phase connection. The Sitop PSU300S is designed for standard regulated 24V direct voltage requirements for machinery and plants.

The new power supply unit with adjustable output voltage from 24 to 28 volts features a wide-range input from 340 to 550 V AC and supplies 20-ampere rated current. With an overall width of just 100 millimeters and no need to calculate lateral clearance for installation, the primary-switched power supply only requires minimum space on the DIN rail.

The high efficiency of more than 91 percent ensures minimum loss of energy and low heat generation in the control cabinet. The new unitsupplies 1.5 times the rated current up to five seconds long for starting up loads with high power requirements. Sitop PSU300S supplies 20 amperes of rated current for ambient temperatures of 0 to 60 degrees and can be operated up to 70 degrees with derating. At temperatures of less than 45 degrees, the stabilized power supply continuously provides up to 20 percent overload current.

With the 3-phase wide range input of 340 to 550 V AC and international certification, the new Sitop PSU300S can be used all over the world. Even with extreme voltage fluctuations, the unit steadily provides 24 volts. Additional Sitop modules are available for increased protection against disturbances from the external network or for 24V circuits, for configuring a redundant or uninterruptible DC power supply, or for selectivity in 24V feeders for example. The operating state of the "24 V DC o.k." can be evaluated by a controller using an integrated floating signaling contact.
