MURRELEKTRONIK, represented in Australia by Sick , has released the PIP Power range of switch mode power supplies. The three product families make up the range.
The MCS family is an all-rounder. It offers a continuous increased output of 20% at an ambient temperature up to 40°C, a wide-range input voltage with PFC for single and three-phase networks in industrial and residential areas, as well as an intelligent load line for trouble-free parallel connection. The units are suitable for use in either mixed or residential areas in accordance with the 2001 European standard EN 61204-3.
The MCS-B series is an economical alternative for small and medium applications. Since there is no fall back on the oversized power reserves of the MCS series, an even finer gradation occurs in order to achieve an optimal customisation to the application. As a result, the lower range has been taken into consideration and this is available in the smallest unit with an output of 0.6A at 24V. This is advantageous for small applications and decentralised energy plans in large systems. The foot on the sides of the housing allows similar units to be lined up next to each other while still ensuring adequate spacing between units. The necessary air circulation is therefore guaranteed with every installation.
PIP Power MPS has been developed for tough industrial environments requiring either single or three-phase units from 3A to 40A. The flat design of the unit is suitable for extensive control cabinets and terminal boxes. The series has a switching output that may be read directly from the PLC. It signals both overload and overheating problems and operates as a fail-safe function.
The three LED indicators give a clear view of the status of the power supply units. Green indicates normal, uninterrupted operation, yellow shows extreme operating temperatures or operation beyond the 20% power reserve and red highlights operational disconnection.
