PULS Power claims its DIN-rail product range offers high reliability with long-term support and is committed to supporting its customers for as long as is possible with products designed into their systems.
The specialist power supplies manufacturer has undertaken not to discontinue standard products while enough demand is present to make them viable for manufacture. This provides their customers with the reassurance that they will not be forced into costly changes to their system components and performance in regular short intervals and to have support for their equipment throughout the entire end system lifecycle.
The company also makes the reliability of its products a very high priority. The data for MTBF and service lifetime is described in detail in the data sheets for every product and is specified precisely for many operating conditions. In addition, there is an in-house guideline defining that for every product in the DIMENSION range a minimum service life of 50,000h must be accomplished at full load, nominal mains voltage 120V/230V and an ambient temperature of +40°C.
This requires an additional loop in the development process, but the user has the advantage that they can take any product from the range and rely on specified and uniform minimum values. When looking at the values for reliability customers will clearly see significant differences in comparison to other manufacturers power supplies.
Typical applications for DIN-rail power supplies include, industrial and process control, building automation, panel-building, test and measurement, instrumentation and communications systems. Versions are available approved for railway systems and ruggedised for harsh environments.
