Pepperl+Fuchs recently introduced the all-new, high-efficiency PS1000 industrial power supplies. Industrial power supplies combine optimal performance and high efficiency with durability and reliability, and with a typical efficiency of more than 95%, the new PS1000 is first in its class.

Industrial process facilities rely tremendously on bulk power supplies for the control system architecture, but also on critical continuous production process applications that require more than a single off-the-shelf industrial power supply. A single power supply failure could have a disastrous effect that equates to an immense amount of lost revenue.

This need for system integrity and guaranteed performance in these demanding conditions necessitates power redundancy. The PS1000 offers N+N and N+1, two reliable redundancy methods that guarantee system functionality will continue even during a power supply failure, resulting in a very low MTTR (Mean Time to Repair).

The new PS1000 line of power supplies from Pepperl+Fuchs are DIN-Rail mount, providing an interruption-free power supply ranging from 5 to 40 Amps, with options for 12VDC, 24VDC, or 48VDC output. The PS1000 offers a small footprint and has the most compact design available in the marketplace. Rated up to 70° C and certified for installation in Ex-rated hazardous locations, the PS1000 power supplies can be used in the most extreme applications. The PS1000 comes with ATEX, IECEx, and either CSA or UL approvals.

MC Four Ways Omrons New Factory Drive Recorder Helps You Determine Root Causes 1 400

If a product is scratched by a robot but nobody was there to see it, how do you know what exactly happened? Intermittent problems in manufacturing lines (such as die casting) can cause millions of lost $$$ when repair workers are forced to troubleshoot without any idea of what may have caused the problem or when the problem will occur again.

Omron’s Factory Drive Recorder addresses this issue by letting you monitor machines or areas within your facility and capture what happened just after or prior to a triggering event. Whether your application involves progressive die casting, machine tooling, bottle inspection, high-precision welding, or something else, this solution can save troubleshooting time.

Omron looks at four ways that automation engineers, quality control engineers, system designers, purchasers, and maintenance personnel can benefit from this technology.
