Rutronik offers “Fit & Forget!”-DIN-rail power supplies

At the PCIM (May 19th – 21st, 2015 at Nuernberg), distributor Rutronik presents in hall 7, stand 226 the two new DIN-Rail power supply families from co-exhibitor RECOM, the REDIN45 and the REDIN60 with 45W and 60W power respectively. The “Fit & Forget!” PSUs come with a high reliability and a long, trouble-free life.

The PSUs from RECOM are available with standard output voltages of 12VDC and 24VDC, adjustable by a front cover potentiometer. The excellent line and load regulation of the REDIN series ensures a stable constant voltage output, which is signaled through a front panel “DC-OK” lamp. The modules are also equipped with voltage-free “DC-OK” contacts, to either directly control a remote indicator lamp or to send a signal to a central monitoring point. Contacts of multiple modules can be daisy-chained to generate a general “System Power OK” signal.

RECOM’s DIN-Rail power supply families REDIN45 and REDIN60 have an operating temperature range from -20°C to +70°C. The high efficiency reaches 87% and low stand-by losses (<0.5W) reduce energy consumption and heat generation to a minimum. Most power supply failures occur because of input voltage surges and transients, now being avoided by a robust input filter. In addition, a long hold-up time of 50ms at full load ensures a stable output even with unreliable mains inputs. The power supplies are equipped with numerous safety protection measures as standard: besides short circuit and over-current protection with automatic restart, they are also over-temperature and over-voltage protected with a latching function. All REDIN power supplies are designed for 24/7 continuous operation. They are fully certified by UL to IEC/EN/UL60950, CE and UL508. A universal input voltage range of 85VAC to 264VAC and altitude up to 500m make them suitable for worldwide use in industrial control, building automation and Smart Home.

With dimensions of 88.6×41.1×101.4mm, the DIN-Rail power supplies are very small; more space can be saved because the modules can be installed next to each other without the need for any spaces between. As an alternative to end-mounting, the power supplies can also be side mounted for use in low-profile cabinets. The design lifetime is more than 87,000 hours. RECOM gives a full seven year warranty to its REDIN series.
