The evolution towards a modular system design:
the rise of decentralized power supplies


More and more companies need large systems for moving, monitoring and processing production and stock. This often involves large warehouses or production facilities where long distances have to be bridged. Due to the associated voltage drops across the cables, decentralized system design is increasingly on the rise. New state-of-the-art electronic power supplies are especially designed for decentralized applications. After all, it is important for logistics centers, machine builders and production entities of the future to be flexible, modular and digitally connected.

Choosing the right power supply – the heart of your applications – is of great importance. In this lecture we want to explain:

  • how and why decentralized power supplies can be the ideal solution for handling systems
  • how and why decentralized power supplies can easily be used in-the-field
  • how field power supplies can make your system planning easier
  • which trends we see more and more applied in the decentralized setup of machines and systems
  • what contribution digital power supplies can make to preventive maintenance via IO-Link
