ELECTRONICS: AutomationDirect’s RHINO™ line of power supplies now includes panel and DIN rail mountable power supplies designed for applications requiring a basic dc voltage power supply. The low-cost supplies offer high performance and reliability when additional features of higher cost full-featured supplies are not needed.
The panel-mountable RHINO PSS series features rugged aluminum housings allowing for three different mounting orientations. The series is available with universal single-phase input and output voltages of 12 and 24 VDC from 35 to 100 Watts. The high-quality power supplies equipped with overload, overvoltage, and thermal protection are UL recognized, CE marked, RoHS compliant and backed with a two-year warranty. Prices for the PSS series start at $19.75.
The DIN rail mountable RHINO PSB series is available with universal single and three-phase input and output voltages of 12 and 24 VDC from 15 to 480 Watts. Constructed of rugged plastic and aluminum housings, the power supplies easily install with integral 35mm DIN rail mounting adapters. These high-quality power supplies equipped with overload, overvoltage, and thermal protection are backed with a three-year warranty and are UL listed, CSA certified, CE marked and RoHS compliant. Prices for the PSB series start at $21.50.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
