Compact high-performance power supplies ensure a reliable power supply

15.11.2010
There are new additions to the Sitop Smart and Sitop Compact power supply families from the Siemens Industry Automation Division.

Compact, efficient and powerful – these are the three key features of the new three-phase Sitop PSU300S power supplies and the single phase Sitop PSU100C device versions. The narrow footprint of the power supplies only requires a small mounting area. Because of their high efficiency, the new models consume less energy and generate less waste heat than comparable devices on the market.


The Siemens Sitop Smart power supply line has been extended by two new versions of the Sitop PSU300S power supply for three-phase mains connection. To complement to the already available power supply with a 20A rated current, the new versions offer 10 and 40A rated output currents. The 10A power supply comes in a metal enclosure just 90mm wide.

The 40A device requires a 145mm space on a DIN rail. The compact size is achieved through the high efficiency of over 91 percent, which reduces the development of heat and makes a voluminous heat sink superfluous. The Sitop PSU300S power supplies are optimized for standard requirements in automated machines and plants which require a stabilized direct voltage of 24V. The high-performance power supplies can deliver 1.5 times the rated current for five seconds, such as during the start up of loads with a high current demand. An integrated signaling contact enables a controller to evaluate the operating state of the power supply as a "24V O.K." statement.

The power supplies can also be combined with redundancy modules, selectivity modules and DC UPS modules (uninterruptible direct current power supply). With their three-phase wide-range input for alternating current from 340 to 550V together with comprehensive certification for all standard applications, the PSU300S devices have been designed for use throughout the world.

Siemens has added three higher-output versions of the single phase Sitop PSU100C power supply to the Sitop Compact power supply line. The two 24V versions supply 2.5 and 4A rated output currents respectively, the 12V version has been designed to deliver a 6.5A rated output current. With overall widths of only 45 and 52.5mm, the new Sitop power supplies are especially suitable for decentralized use in the lower power range of up to 100W, such as installation in switch boxes and small control cabinets. Like all the models in the product line, the new DIN rail devices are characterized by high efficiency throughout the entire load range and low no-load losses of less than 1W. The wide-range input facilitates connection to single phase alternating current networks with voltages of 120 and 230V, or to direct voltage networks with voltages between 110 and 300V. Detachable clamp-type terminals allow the use of pre-assembled wiring and make it easy to exchange devices. The power supplies are suitable for universal use in an operational temperature range from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
