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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
