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: 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....
