Mouser offers DIN-rail power supplies from Phoenix Contact
For process industries, machine building and other industrial applications, the Quint4 power supplies from Phoenix Contact are now available from Mouser Electronics. The fourth generation DIN-rail supplies are customisable to meet evolving system demands, says the company.
The new generation includes near-field communications (NFC), real-time monitoring, co-ordinated surge protection, and a configurable DC output characteristic. With secured NFC, the Quint4 power supplies can be configured while still in the box. User-definable settings allow engineers in the field to monitor DC current, power, or voltage in real time using a 4.0 to 20mA analogue output. Engineers can also add tamper-proof security to the power supplies by locking out the pushbuttons on the front panel and creating a user-defined password. Operating hours, DC input voltage, over-voltage, and temperature derating can also be monitored with dry contact outputs.
The QUINT4 units use power boost and selective fuse breaking (SFB) technology. SFB technology delivers six times the rated current for up to 15ms to selectively trigger standard circuit breakers. The units offer static boost with up to 125 per cent of the rated current, allowing engineers to expand the system. For starting heavy loads, the power supplies feature dynamic boost with up to 200 per cent of the rated current for up to five seconds.
The DIN rail QUINT4 power supplies are available from Mouser Electronics in single- or three-phase models with widths of 36 to 70mm. All units include gas discharge tubes to protect against transient voltages.
