PULS Power the specialist manufacturer of DIN-Rail power supplies, announces the availability of the PIC480.241C single phase input 24V, 20A output power supply. An extension of the market-leading PIANO-Series this cost-oriented power supply is just 49mm wide freeing-up maximum rail space for functional system modules.
The PIC480.241C offers high efficiency, up to 95.7 per cent at 230V at full load, and extreme reliability with an MTBF of 482.000h, to IEC 61709, at 40°C. The mechanically robust housing is made of a high-gradeshock-resistant polycarbonate reinforced molded material, which permits the units to be used in ambient temperatures up to +70°C. The PIC480.241C delivers full power over the temperature range of -10°C to +55°C and features a 3-year warranty.
The PIC480.241C features input transient protection, output over-voltage protection, over-temperature protection (output shut-down with automatic restart) and electronic output protection against overload, no-load and short-circuits.
As most typical industrial applications do not require multiple mains input voltages, the implementation of a regional input voltage range (200-240VAC) simplifies the circuitry and has significant advantages for reliability, efficiency and cost.
The addition of a DC-OK signal, with optional isolated contacts, makes the unit suitable for many industrial applications including: instrumentation, process, automation and other critical applications where preventive function monitoring can help to avoid long downtimes or damage.
Marco van der Linden, UK country manager, for PULS comments: “DIN-Rail power supplies offer system designers and installers’ uncomplicated assembly of panels and control cabinets. Our Piano range provide simple, reliable, compact and cost-effective system power solutions. They offer many advantages over chassis mounted types including ease of installation, the ability to upgrade in the event of a system change and simplicity of installation and maintenance.”
