RS Components has announced the availability of a range of DIN rail power supplies from Siemens, which are suited to a wide range of industrial automation applications.
The single-phase SITOP PSU6200 power supplies are slim and space-saving, with plug-in terminals that support easy electrical connection and are designed for use in distributed power applications in machine control boxes or in small cabinets.
A key characteristic of the device is its very low power loss across the entire load range, especially in idle mode, which makes the units ideally suited for automated machines in plants that are often in standby operation. Overall, the characteristics, in conjunction with the series’ wide operating temperature range, means they can be deployed in multiple industrial application options.
Another important feature of the series is the integration of advanced diagnostic capabilities, enabling the units to indicate their operating status and current utilization, as well as end-of-service life via LEDs. They also output a serial code via the diagnostics interface, which can be read via a digital input on a PLC and evaluated by a function block. Status and operating parameter information include DC ok; utilization percentage levels; remaining service-life warning – for a value below 10%; output current and voltage to 1A and 0.1V resolutions, respectively; and device temperature warnings.
The SITOP PSU6200 series from Siemens is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and the APAC regions.
