B&R Industrial Automation Corp., an automation equipment manufacturer based in Atlanta, has introduced a new power supply for seamless supply of small drives. The device can be used internationally because of its large supply voltage range of 3x 380 – 500 VAC, and it provides extensive possibilities for parameter settings and error diagnostics, according to the company.
Status information can be read at any time via a fieldbus connection. This allows, for example, evaluation of the load, output-voltage changes or brake-chopper threshold at any time. Operation close to the power limits can be detected by the central control system.
The output-voltage range covers 36 volts of continuous direct current (VDC) to 80 VDC. An additional 24 VDC output provides the possibility to supply other automation components with current requirements up to 2A.
The new power-supply module is designed for a continuous power output of 1 kW, and the main feature of the DC power supply module is a bus interface.
