PULS Power has introduced its new DIN-Rail power supply CP20.241-V1, featuring a remote-controlled on/off feature.
This allows system administrators and building automation controllers to switch the power supply on or off by use of an external signal switch or transistor gate. This remote-control feature is designed to make centralised control of multiple system components simple to implement and provide an efficient shut-down facility in the event of system failure or emergency.
The new PULS CP20.241-V1 is part of the Dimension CP series, which provides solutions for designers and systems integrators requiring powerful and space-saving DIN rail power supplies.
With a width of 48mm, the compact design of the CP20 units is made possible due to its efficiency of 95.6%. The devices have been optimised for the highest possible peak efficiency at full load and provide excellent efficiencies with partial loads. High efficiency levels across the entire load range mean lower energy costs for the users in the usage phase and lower heat generated. The units can achieve a service lifetime of at least 94,000 hours at +40°C ambient temperature, 100% load and 230VAC input.
In addition to the high-power density, users can benefit from a comprehensive approvals package and many useful features. These features include a power reserve of 20% (up to +45°C continuously and between +45°C and +60°C short-term), a small input inrush current, full output power between -25°C and +60°C (with derating up to +70°C) as well as high immunity to transients.
Key specifications of the PULS CP20.241-V1 include input voltage 100-240VAC and 110V-150VDC, active power factor correction (PFC), output 24-28VDC at 480W, current sharing feature for parallel operation, safe HiccupPLUS overload protection mode, easy breaking fuse at three times nominal current for 12ms, remote shut-down, DC-OK relay contact and dimensions of 48 x 124 x 127mm.
