Quint Power DIN-mount power supplies from RS Components

October 2018 Electrical Power & Protection

RS Components now stocks the latest Phoenix Contact Quint Power DIN-rail power supplies, giving easy access to the innovative features and flexibility of these space-saving PSUs.

The fourth generation of Quint Power covers ratings up to 100 W, with 24 V output voltage and 1,3 A, 2,5 A, and 3,8 A nominal current ratings. They are the first members of the Quint Power family below 100 W to feature Phoenix Contact’s dynamic boost technology, which can supply up to 200% of nominal maximum current for up to five seconds to start loads that place high short-term initial demand.

In addition, the 1,3 A and 2,5 A models also support static boost that allows 25% over-current at any time for five seconds, to handle short-term peaks.

Further value-added features include preventive function monitoring, which warns of critical operating states before errors occur, and configurable signalling of DC OK or selectable power thresholds that let users adapt output-parameter monitoring to suit the application. The wide AC input range of 85-264 V, and DC range of 8-350 V, gives flexibility to power the units from various sources, such as the main AC line in any geographical market, or a DC bus, battery bank or industrial power supply.

The supplies have an ambient operating-temperature range of -25 to 70°C, allowing use in a wide variety of environments. Their slim and flat 90 mm-high design saves space inside enclosures, while efficiency of over 93% prevents excessive heat and helps cut energy consumption.
