IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies
The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.
Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power suppliers to be used in control panels without the need for air conditioning or other cooling devices. In addition, operating efficiencies have been significantly improved, up to 16% from previous generations. These efficiencies meet or exceed competing products, and reduce energy consumption.
Flexibility is designed into the PS5R-V line of power supplies with spring-up screw terminals that accept ring and fork terminals, as well as stripped wire. The power supply can also be mounted in any of six different orientations with minimal derating, providing a wealth of installation configuration options.
The PS5R-V line of power supplies is approved for installation in Class I Division 2 environments in standard control cabinets, making them ideal for use in hazardous location applications such as oil and gas processing and petrochemical facilities. These power supplies add to IDEC’s current line of products approved for installation in hazardous areas, allowing many automation applications to be designed using only approved products, which simplifies engineering and saves money.
Certifications and approvals include UL 508, UL 1310, SEMI F47 and RoHS. Meeting these stringent industry standards requires the use of very reliable components, leading to an MTBF of up to 900,000 hours for this line of power supplies. This high level of reliability allows IDEC to offer their customers an industry leading five-year warranty.
