Encapsulated power supplies
By Mary Del
AutomationDirect has extended its RHINO line to include AC/DC switch mode power supplies encapsulated in ultra-compact, low-profile housing. The new PSE series features a universal AC input range of 85 to 264 volts, and is available in single- or dual-output models. Output voltage ranges include five, 12, 15 and 24 VDC; and +/- 12 and +/- 15 VDC. Single-output models provide a maximum output power range from 15 to 60 watts, while dual-output models provide a range from 15 to 30 watts. Designed with a double-insulated plastic resin housing, no external grounding is required. Screw terminal blocks provide easy connection, and the series is short circuit and overload protected, the company says. The power supplies can be screw mounted to a panel or equipment chassis, and can also be DIN rail mounted using the optional DIN rail mounting kit.
