Switching power supply line

RHINO PSM line of power supplies includes several new metal and plastic housed switching supply models. The industrial-grade, switching dc-output power supplies are capable of automatically switching between 115 and 230 Vac inputs. the power supplies are available in 12 or 24 Vdc output, with adjustable output voltages, and feature low output ripple along with overload and overtemperature protection. The Seven models offer power ratings from 78-600 W, and up to 25 A output current. Each power supply includes two diagnostic outputs for monitoring low output voltage levels, allowing for remote notification to a PLC, SCADA, or CMMS.

High-channel-count I/O

Two Compact FieldPoint devices offer engineers improvements for control systems by reducing the number of required modules and significantly reducing system jitter. The cFP/FP-DIO-550 is a 16-channel digital I/O module that measures eight digital 11-30-Vdc inputs and sources eight digital 10-30-Vdc outputs with 250 mA per channel. The cFP-AO-118 is an eight-channel analog input module that measures voltages with a range from 0 to 1, 5, 10, or 15 V, either positive voltage or differential. The eight analog inputs have 16-bit resolution and offer 10-kS/s per channel sampling rate.
