The power supply series Pro 2 and the communication module from WAGO make systems suitable for digitization.
Conrad Elektroniks product range on the Conrad Sourcing Platform now includes the two advanced DIN-Rail power supply units from WAGO’s Pro 2 power supply series with 480 and 960 watts. The snap-on communication module is also a novelty on the Conrad Sourcing Platform. The module enables the power supplies to communicate with a PLC or an IoT gateway and ensures both practical and reliable integration in the respective infrastructure.
The power supplies in the Pro 2 series continuously exchange data via the communication module. For this, standardized protocols such as IO-Link and Modbus RTU are currently used. In future, however, Ethernet-based protocols such as Modbus TCP, MQTT and Ethernet IP will also be used. Continuous monitoring is possible via the devices’ monitoring functions.
Electrical installers in industry as well as in companies that specialize in designing control cabinets and system integrators can use the power supply units in the Pro 2 series for energy optimization as well as to evaluate and analyze data such as current, voltage and power values. In standby mode, the central PLC can be used to turn off the decentralized power supplies in system parts via hardware signals or bus commands to save energy.
“Our power supplies in the Pro 2 series achieve an efficiency of up to 96.3% and are therefore a real world champion in efficiency. The reduced operating costs measured in euros and the CO2 savings through the power supplies are significantly higher than originally assumed by customers, ”says Florian Kothe, Business Development Manager Interface at WAGO.
Klaus Böhmer, Sales Director International at WAGO, adds: “The long life, the compact size and above all the high level of efficiency and the consequent maximum reduction in operating costs are the direct benefits that our customers and system operators can benefit from today 1. ”
For those applications where derating must be taken into account and a defined current value must therefore not be exceeded, the built-in ammeter can emit a warning and thus effectively prevent an overload.
A fast and reliable disconnection of switches becomes possible thanks to the short-term output currents of up to 600%. In addition, the power supply units make it possible to charge capacitors quickly, just as switches can change faster thanks to an output current of 150% for 5 seconds.
The power supplies in the Pro 2 series are suitable for use in the extended temperature range -40 to +70 ° C.
