SITOP PSU8600 is the first power supply system with a complete integration in Totally Integrated Automation. This not only pays off in engineering in the TIA Portal or in manufacturer-independent communication systems, but also in operation. For example, voltage and current can be individually adjusted for each output, and the integrated overload protection enables each output to be monitored. Other modules from the system toolbox can be added to suit requirements with no wiring overhead, for example to buffer power failures. Comprehensive diagnostic and maintenance information is available via PROFINET. SITOP provides the best possible support for power management for plants or machines, from recording power data from individual outputs to switching outputs on and off via PROFIenergy. In this way, the SITOP PSU8600 is setting new standards in plant reliability and efficiency.
Complex facilities place high demands on the efficiency, flexibility, and reliability of their components. The innovative SITOP PSU8600 power supply system satisfies them all – thanks to its unique functionality, diagnostic capability, full integration in TIA, open communication networks, and modular expandibility.
Great performance in a very small space
The high efficiency up to 94% of the basic devices ensures minimum heat loss, which makes very compact designs possible. Up to four outputs monitored for overloads also help save space for circuit-breaking devices. Integrated Ethernet/PROFINET communication opens up new opportunities for diagnostics and the range of applications for your power supply.
More outputs for more flexibility
The expansion modules can be used to expand the base units with up to 32 additional, selectively monitored outputs. The connection takes place on top of the modules without any wiring by means of the System Clip Link, a connecting plug for system data and power supply
Bridging brief and longer power failures
Buffer modules with electrolytic capacitors, providing buffering for up to 600 ms at a load current of 40 A, can be used to protect against brief power dips on the line side (brownouts). The versions with double-layer capacitors (UltraCaps) buffer against longer outages up to 20 s at 40 A. Because the buffer time is longer for lower buffer currents, this enables industrial PCs to be shut down manually as required.
Bridging longer power failures lasting from minutes to hours with full system power
An uninterruptible power supply with appropriate battery modules can be used to protect against longer power dips on the line side and thus to bridge power failures lasting from minutes to hours. These expansion modules make it possible to shut the plant down safely and selectively in the event of a power failure. For most power interruptions, the bridging time is sufficient to allow the plant to continue operating without disruption.
