With increasingly sensitive and complex systems, a power supply failure can result in data loss or system downtime, which can cause long re-start times and high costs. Redundant power supply systems increase system availability and prevent financial losses resulting from downtime.
PULS is specialised in innovative redundancy systems and is continuously working on building systems that are even more user-friendly and compact.
The next development stage includes DIN-rail power supplies with integrated decoupling function, which means that users can build 1+1 and n+1 redundancy systems without additional redundancy modules. This results in significant space and cost savings and reduces also the complexity of the redundancy systems.
PULS managed to integrate the decoupling feature into the standard CP-housings. This means the dimensions of the units are identical to those of the standard CP10 (39mm) and CP20 (48mm). The slim units and the cancellation of the redundancy module allow space-savings of more than 45%.
The new power supplies are available with hot-swap plug connectors or screwless terminals. The hot-swap connectors (CP10.241-R2 and CP20.241-R2) allow the replacement of devices during ongoing operation. If there is no need for this feature or if heavy shocks and vibrations occur regularly in the application, the screwless units (CP10.241-R1 and CP20.241-R1) are a perfect choice.
The power supplies reduce system complexity and costs due to shorter installation times. Less cabling effort also means a lower failure risk caused by faulty connections. In addition, there is only one part number that has to be managed.
