SVS05 power distribution systems from E-T-A ElectroTechnical Applications deliver reliable overcurrent protection and optimised power distribution, making them suitable for use in a range of industries and automation technology.
Comprising an intelligent sub-system on a lower control level, SCS05 systems feature integral comprehensive communication of operating status and failures as well as switching and resetting of individual circuits of the DC 24V level via AS-i bus.
These power distribution systems can be individually adjusted to suit customer requirements, and hence are well suited for use in a range of industries, including:
- process control
- pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs
- power plants
- steel works; and
- the automotive industry.
Four load circuits can be directly connected so that the DC 24V control voltage is wired via these power distribution systems, which saves costs and time.
Spring-loaded terminals for the individual load outputs also function as potential disconnection terminals with troubleshooting.
Within a typical setup, yellow bifilar cables transmit fault conditions related to the eight circuits to the PLC. Using the same AS-i bus, electronic circuit breakers or protectors within the system can receive a remote reset or ON/OFF command after a disconnection caused by an overload.
For single signal wiring of SCS05 power distribution systems, only the bifilar AS-i bus cable is connected, rather than the 18 cables normally required for signalling and control. The two AS-i modules allow a simultaneous transfer of signalling and controlling signals.
