Consolidating Three Phase Power Conversion
The Power to Reclaim Rack Space
Authored by ABB's Jim Montgomery, Senior Product Manager, this paper provides insights to conversion of three phase AC power to DC.
Managing the conversion of three phase AC power to DC is something of a balancing act – both in terms of levelling the load across all phases, and in producing more power in less space. For years, in large industrial and manufacturing operations, power distribution designers simply converted each of the three AC power phases with three corresponding AC-DC rectifiers.
Yet today, with three phase power used across high-demand, high-reliability and high-quality power settings such as data centers and high-bandwidth communications operations, converting each phase of the AC power coming into the facility into usable DC power presents phase balancing challenges.
Compact 36W, 60W and 90W DIN rail power supplies with basic functionality
The latest and smallest representatives of the PIANO product family are currently the 24V DIN rail power supplies PIM36 (36W - coming soon), PIM60 (60W) and PIM90 (90W).
Mini power supplies. New space opportunities.
The new PIANO Mini (PIM) power supplies create space in your systems or machines and allow you a more flexible planning. A 90W DIN rail power supply in a 36 x 90 x 91mm (WxHxD) housing is currently unique in the market. The width of the 36W version is only 22.5mm - so literally a thumb's width. This results in completely new space opportunities for you.
Focus on core features.
The most important characteristic of the PIANO devices is their focus on the core features of a power supply: efficiency, lifetime, reliability and size. The very high PULS quality is maintained in each of these features.
An example is the high efficiency of 91,8% (PIM60 and PIM90) at full load and +40°C ambient temperature. This means lower heat losses. It makes the power supplies more durable and reduces your costs for the cooling of your system.
Push-in or screw terminals - you decide.
For the PIM60 and PIM90 you can choose between push-in and screw terminals. The push-in terminals reduce installation time, and are very reliable in environments prone to shock and vibration. In addition, they are ideally suited for robot-assisted wiring processes.
The screw terminals, that accommodate large diameter wires, are still popular in environments with minimal shock and vibration.
Growing power supply family.
With the new PIANO Mini products, PULS now provides a complete, cost-oriented product family in the 36-480W power range.
