The power supply is provided with a pc board protective coating to guard
against moisture, dust and other contaminants, making the CPFE500F
ideal for harsh, outdoor or dusty applications. Since there is no fan, the
CPFE500F series is equally suited to low-audible-noise applications.
These single output power supplies are available in 12V, 24V, 28V or 48VDC
output versions. Up to Â±20 percent output voltage adjustment is possible
enabling the CPFE500F to be used in a variety of customer-specific power
There is an extended temperature range of from -40 to +85C and lightning
surge capability of up to 6kV, the CPFE500F.
An efficiency of 85 percent insures heat dissipation is minimized. Operating
from a universal input of 90 to 265VAC with PFC, the outputs of these units can
be connected in either a series or parallel configuration with active
current-share as standard.
As an option, these units can be provided with an internal ORing diode for
redundant/fault-tolerant applications. A power-on signal, remote on/off,
remote-sense and auxiliary-output (12V/20mA) are included features.
The data can also be analyzed in detail in order to determine trends in the
measured values, for instance. This permits early reaction to problems even
before faulty parts are produced. All data is stored long-term in the IPM
software database so that seamless traceability of produced parts is
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
