The CP20 series from PULS stands for efficient and compact 24V, 20A 1-phase DIN rail power supplies. With the new CP20.248, the manufacturer from Munich has extended its portfolio by a power supply with an integrated display on the front.
As a result, a reliable and cost-effective condition monitoring feature can be integrated into almost any system and users can benefit immediately from faster fault diagnosis and increased system availability.
- All data in one glance, directly in the application
The display shows important status information about the power supply for the service technician and distinguishes between real-time information and recorded data. The real-time data supplied by the CP20.248 includes the input and output voltage, output current, operating hours and temperature inside the device. The recorded data gives users insight into the number of transients on the input side as well as minimum and maximum voltage and temperature values for example. This information helps the system engineer to optimize the entire application in terms of reliability and to identify the cause of occurring errors more efficiently. The display and data storage are not supplied by the power supply output itself which means that the information is still available, even if the power supply fails.
- Safe monitoring and remote control
For remote status monitoring, two relay contacts for DC-OK and alarm signals are available. Using the two additional inputs, the power supply can be put into an energy-saving standby mode using the remote ON / OFF function and automatic load sharing in parallel operation can be realized. The latter enables an optimized temperature balance between the power supplies connected in parallel, which leads to a longer service life of the devices.
- Small space requirements, thanks to high efficiency
All CP20 versions share the same compact housing with dimensions of 48x124x127mm (WxHxD). There is even extra room for the integrated display. This is made possible by a very high efficiency of 95.6%. Thanks to the low power losses, less heat is generated and the clearance and creepage distances can be reduced. The 24V, 10A DIN rail power supply CP10 with display will also be available soon.
