Compact, rugged, three-phase power supplies for worldwide use


SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Sitop PSU300S 5A with a 50 mm width, and a 10 A version with a 70 mm width
  • High overload capability through 50 percent higher rated current
  • Three-phase, wide-range 340 to 550 V input for worldwide use
  • Wide ambient temperature range from -25 to +70 °C

Siemens has added two extremely compact, versatile devices to its range of power supplies. The new Sitop PSU300S with a 5 ampere rated output current has a width of just 50 mm, which saves space on the standard mounting rail.

Siemens has also reduced the width of the 10 ampere version by 20 mm to 70 mm. These devices need no lateral installation clearances from other devices. The high-performance power supplies can deliver 1.5 times the rated current for up to five seconds to start loads with a high current demand.

With their high efficiency of up to 91 percent, both power supplies have low thermal losses in the control cabinet. The devices have a 3-phase AC input with a wide-range from 340 to 550 volts and supply a reliable 24 volts even in the event of major line voltage deviations.

International certifications, such as ATEX, IECEx and GL, and an ambient temperature range from -25 to 70 °C enable these power supplies to be used worldwide in a wide range of industries. These two rugged devices round off the Sitop smart product line. They are designed to meet standard requirements for a stabilized 24 volt direct voltage in machines and systems.

Users can set the output voltage to between 24 and 28 V to compensate for voltage drops along long lines. Additional Sitop modules are available to provide greater protection against disturbances in the power supply or in the 24 V circuit, for example to create an uninterruptible DC power supply or for the selective protection of 24 V load circuits.

The "DC 24 volt OK" operating state can be evaluated by a controller via an integrated potential-free signaling contact. If service is required, the DataMatrix code on the front of the device allows users to download product information, such as a data sheet or manual, directly via the Siemens Industry Online Support App.

For design and configuration purposes, 2D and 3D data, circuit diagram macros, operating instructions and certificates are available from the Internet without charge.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
