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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
