Beckhoff Offers New Line of Compact, Universal 24/48 V DC Power Supplies
The scalable PS device series offers optimized convection cooling, long service life, reliability and high efficiency
Friday, December 4, 2020
The power supply portfolio includes the following device series:
PS1000 with six 1-phase power supply units for smaller and cost-sensitive applications (24 V DC, 2.5/3.8/5/10/20 A, efficiency up to 95.2%)
PS2000 with five 1- and 3-phase power supply units for standard applications (24/48 V DC, 5/10/20 A; efficiency up to 96.3%, 120% permanent output power)
PS3000 with seven 1- and 3-phase power supply units for demanding applications (24/48 V DC, 10/20/40 A, efficiency up to 95.4%, 150% output power for 4 seconds)
The UL-approved power supplies are also ideal for use in highly specialized industries and offer approvals according to SEMI 47 (semiconductor industry), DNV GL (shipbuilding) and others. They can also be used in hazardous areas requiring explosion protection (Class I Division 2, IECEx and ATEX).
Optimized design manages heat and back EMF
The devices are specifically designed with outstanding convection cooling properties in mind. The minimized number of components allows sufficient space for air convection. In addition, components that are particularly temperature-sensitive and prone to rapid aging are placed at the bottom of the unit, i.e. as close as possible to incoming cool air. This temperature-optimized design means that the components experience less thermal stress, thus achieving a long service life. In addition, components that are subject to less stress retain their technical characteristics for longer, which further minimizes the influence of external heat. All of these features also improve reliability.
Due to the high tolerance to electrical feedback, the power supply units are ideally suited for motion applications. They also have exceptional peak power capability to operate motors, capacitors and other loads that require more power at start-up than in the nominal range. In most cases, the power supplies from a lower and more cost-effective power class in the portfolio will be adequate for this purpose.
