Compact 24 volt power supplies with high performance but low space requirements

28.11.2008
Siemens's Industry Automation Division has added a new compact 40 ampere basic unit to its Sitop modular power supply series.

It is only 150 millimeters wide, which is 90 millimeters narrower than the previous unit. The 20 ampere power supply has also been renewed and is only 70 millimeters wide.


The two Sitop PSU300M standard mounting rail power supplies for connection to 3-phase 400-500 volt AC networks now have a wider range input (from 320 to 575 volt AC) than previous versions. This enables them to be used in almost all the world's 3-phase networks, and they provide a reliable 24 volt supply even when there are large deviations in the voltage supply. The user now simply evaluates the "DC 24 V OK" operating mode via the new, integrated dry signaling contact.

The new 40 ampere power supply is a substantial improvement on the previous model. Apart from its small dimensions, the power unit now supplies 60 amperes for five seconds, so it can easily switch on even terminal equipment with high starting currents. Its efficiency of up to 93 percent reduces energy consumption and heat build-up in the control cabinet

Like all Sitop basic units in the modular series, the new Sitop PSU300M standard mounting rail power supplies also have rugged metal enclosures. They can provide up to three times the rated current to meet short-term peak power demands. Moreover, the short-circuit response can be set with the options: latching shutdown or constant current with automatic re-ramp up to the output voltage. Used in combination with Sitop add-on modules, comprehensive protection can be achieved against primary and secondary disturbances.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
