Carlo Gavazzi has extended its portfolio of DIN rail-mounting power supplies with the SPDM and SPDC modules which offer compact dimensions to allow more space in the cabinet and high performance covering power and voltage requirements for 120W and 240W.
This latest series of switching power supplies ensure optimal performance in industries such as automation and control for commercial buildings, domestic control systems, telecom and datacom, HVAC, industrial and lighting applications as well as automation applications such as doors, gates, lifts and escalators.
Starting from just 32mm wide, the units range from 2 DIN wide and low profile design and allow the SPDC to be connected in parallel with identical units to achieve double the power. The SPDM power boost up to 150% for up to 3 seconds which is useful for high inrush currents at start up; and offers efficiency up to 88% and SPDC up to 94%, which reduces energy wastage and prevents excessive heating in the enclosure. Operating temperature range is -25 to +70°.
The SPDM offers output voltage of 24Vdc (adjustable from 24 to 28Vdc) whilst the SPDC is available with 12V or 24V. Universal input voltage 100 Vac to 230 Vac and 127 to 370Vdc. All units come with protection as standard; the SPDM also has a built in current limit circuit whilst the SPDC includes DC OK indication built in for immediate fault identification and relay output in case of output failure.
All power supplies are developed and manufactured to be certified with CE, UL and cULus international standards for both Europe and North America pending approval.
