Beckhoff: Compact and Universal 24/48 V DC Power Supplies – Power Supply Overview

December 15, 2020

The comprehensive power supply portfolio offers single-phase and 3-phase DIN rail power supply units with output currents from 2.5 A to 40 A: from the PS1000 series for small, cost-optimized applications and the PS2000 series for the commonest standard applications to the PS3000 series for demanding 24 and 48 V DC applications.

All series convince with universally high efficiencies and low heat losses. This has a positive effect on the lifetime and reliability of the power supply units and results in increased machine and plant availability as well as reduced energy costs.

The portfolio offers single-phase and 3-phase devices for 24 V DC and for 48 V DC. The power spectrum extends from 2.5 A up to 40 A; the short-term supply of up to 1.44 kW is possible. On the output side, the DIN-rail power supply units operate according to the UI characteristic curve. Depending on the variant type, the power supply units support the hiccup mode as well as extra power and the reliable tripping of circuit breakers. This enables the starting of heavy loads and additionally protects the machines and plant parts in case of faults. Flexible global use is possible due to the wide-range input. The power supply units fulfil the requirements of special industries, allowing, for example, the semiconductor industry (SEMI-F47) and shipbuilding (DNV/GL approval) to be served. Use in potentially explosive atmospheres according to Class I Division 2, IECEx and ATEX is also possible.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
