Diagnostic module monitors supplies 

PS3500 diagnostic module continuously monitors the health and efficiency of PS3500 power supplies and primary side power conditions. It provides real-time diagnostics with configurable warning and alarm levels, and alerts personnel to irregularities, faults and impending failures. PS3500 is modular and hot-swappable, and integrates into plant asset management systems via RS485/HART, EDDL or FDT/DTM. PS3500 is up to 91% efficient, and features a modular design with selectable wiring configurations.


Network-ready, control cabinet UPS 

Quint DC UPS is reported to be the first industrial UPS platform that provides real-time data about its battery health over standard industrial networking protocols, such as EtherNet/IP, Profinet, EtherCAT and USB. Quint DC is also an intelligent, modular solution that provides critical system backup for supply loads in the event of mains failures, and indicates operating and battery states. Its battery management system (BMS) with IQ technology and a powerful battery charger ensure power reliability in a control system.


Six units with 96% conversion efficiency 

Pro2 power supplies include six units ranging from 120-960 W with an energy conversion efficiency up to 96%. Their interface lets them be tailored to any application requirement. The units also offer monitoring functions that provide continuous power supply data information and signal errors for application monitoring. They also have easy fieldbus connection with snap-on type communication modules with the supplier's exclusive high-performance TopBoost and PowerBoost capabilities.


Compact, configurable and 1,200W 

Nevo+1200S compact, configurable power supply from Vox Power delivers up to 1,200W from its 6 x 6 x 1.61 in. package. Weighing only 1.2 kg when configured, it's ideal for applications where size, weight, low standby power and primary side inhibit are vital factors. Featuring intelligent fan control, wide output voltage adjust and primary side shutdown with standby power consumption of less than 3W, Nevo+1200S carries IEC/UL62368 safety approvals, and complies with EN61000 Immunity and EN55022-B EMC standards.

Digi-Key Electronics

Compact, durable, parallel connections  

PROtop power supply combines high efficiency and durability, and direct parallel connection and switching without diode modules, which reduces costs and saves 30% on cabinet space. PROtop features high pulse reserves for starting motors quickly and safely; peak load reserves up to 600%; reliable triggering of circuit breakers; simple retrofit capability; one communication module for all devices; data transparency from the sensor to the cloud; and requires less installation and wiring effort.


Seven with IP67 and output options 

Field Power Supply (Fiepos) series DIN-rail, switched-mode power supplies have added seven IP67 power supplies. Each has an input voltage of 320-550 VAC, and offers 20% added power continuously at temperatures of 45 °C or less, and 100% added power for up to 5 seconds for high-demand startup loads.
