Eco-Rail-2: Focus on the essentials
Eco-Rail-2 power supply units offer manufacturers of machinery and control cabinets the possibility to supply power to their consumers flexibly and economically. These units provide basic functionality creating a solution with the optimum price-performance ratio for numerous applications.
Demands on the power supply market are steadily increasing. Maximum efficiency and constant performance even at high temperatures are a must. Diagnostic and communication facilities are also increasingly in demand as the components are integrated into higher-level networks and become part of Industry 4.0 applications. Murrelektronik offers advanced high-performance solutions to meet these requirements.
At the same time, "classic" applications still exist – without such increased requirements. In such applications, electrical engineer does not have to deal with exceptional ambient conditions and the power supply does not have to be integrated into a system. The essential requirement in such cases is a power supply solution that operates reliably, flexibly and economically.
The Murrelektronik Eco-Rail-2 series power supplies are predestined for such applications. They easily meet all basic requirements for power supply systems and help to monitor the overall costs in the control cabinet.
Five devices are available in the series in different current ratings from 1.3 to 20 A. The output voltage of the devices can be set from 23 to 28 V. This means that the required voltage can be supplied to the consumer regardless of the length of the power supply line. Connecting two power supply units in series allows the output voltage to be increased to 48 V.
Eco-Rail-2 operates reliably in temperature ranges between 0 and 55°C and thus covers a wide range of application areas. The power supply unit can be easily mounted on the DIN rail without any tools. The screw terminals are attached to the front of the unit to facilitate quick and easy cable connection. UL approval enables worldwide use.
Worthy of note is the "hold-up time" of the Eco-Rail-2 series switch-mode power supplies which is up to 130 milliseconds. This helps to bridge voltage drops at the input side.
