New power supply line

IDEC has announced the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, which are replacing their existing PS5R and PS5R-S series’. According to the company, these power supplies are designed for use in demanding industrial applications and improve upon existing models in many areas.

The new line of power supplies includes 7.5W, 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W, 90W, 120W and 240W versions. All models have a compact form factor, with an overall dimension reduction of 20 per cent compared to the previous models. Combined with DIN-rail mounting, the reduced form factors free up control panel space and reduce installation costs, according to the company.

Operating temperatures range from -25 to +75°C, which allows these power supplies to be used in control panels without the need for air conditioning or other cooling devices. Furthermore, the company claims that operating efficiencies have been improved by up to 16 per cent from previous models.

The power supplies have been approved for installation in Class I Division 2 environments in standard control cabinets, making them suitable for use in hazardous applications such as oil and gas processing and petrochemical facilities.
