With the new Sitop PSU8600 Siemens presents its next-generation power supply system: It is the first power supply capable of being completely integrated in networked automation applications and the Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal).
This reduces the outlay for engineering and operation considerably. The Ethernet/Profinet interfaces enable users to individually set voltage and current for up to 16 outputs, for example. Depending on requirements additional modules, such as those for buffering short power failures, can be added without wiring effort. Several integrated functions support condition monitoring and power data acquisition, thus enhancing both availability and efficiency.
For this reason, the Sitop PSU8600 is particularly suitable for industries that have high requirements in terms of reliability and integration, such as automotive, food and beverages, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as in plant and custom machine building.
The advantages of the new Sitop PSU8600 can be summarized as follows: With a narrow width of only 125 mm, the three-phase base unit with 40 amperes and four individually monitored outputs features a particularly space-saving design.
