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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
