New Altech® PS-C DIN rail power supplies have been engineered to deliver high power (up to 20 amps) in a compact package (up to 50% smaller in size compared with conventional versions).  These single-output units additionally can provide an upfront power surge by boosting 50% more power in the first three seconds followed by 100% of continuously rated power in service.  They have been optimized overall for high efficiency (up to 94%), low power dissipation, and sustained reliability.

The PS-C120 (120W) series is the newest power supply joining the extended family of Altech PS-C240 (240W) and PS-C480 (480W) models.  The new PS-C20 power supply particularly promotes “green” operation using an energy-saving design and offers a low- to medium-wattage power supply solution offering high performance while meeting space-saving requirements (measuring 40mm in width, 125.2mm in height, and 113.5mm in depth).

All three series can especially satisfy the power demands for a wide range of industry applications ranging from factory automation and semiconductor fabrication machinery to marine and electromechanical equipment, among others.

Standard features for all versions include a built-in DC OK relay contact enabling users to confirm remotely that the power supply is operating as required, a built-in active PFC function, and 100% full load burn-in test.  The power supplies are cooled by free air convection and incorporate multiple protections against short circuits, overload, over voltage, and over temperature.

They mount easily on DIN rails, install with universal AC input (86-264 VAC), and comply with UL508, CUL, and EN61000-6-2 (EN50082-2) standards and (for marine and semiconductor usage) GL and SEMI F47 norms.  The power supplies additionally are CE approved.

This PS-C Series joins a growing family of Altech DIN rail power supplies backed by a 3-year warranty.  Custom products can be developed to suit particular application requirements.
