The innovative Emparro67 Hybrid switch mode power supply unit is an all-rounder with many powerful features: it not only relocates power supply from the control cabinet to the industrial field, but it also monitors currents using two integrated channels for 24 VDC load circuit monitoring, to ensure high operational reliability. An IO-Link interface permits extensive and transparent communication.
The fully encapsulated IP67 power supplies of the Emparro67 line with robust metal housing impress with their high energy efficiency – up to 93.8 percent of the energy applied can be used. The great advantage of this decentralized solution: The voltage conversion from 230 VAC to 24 VDC no longer takes place in the cabinet, but directly at the load. Thus, power loss is reduced to a minimum. Smaller cabinets can be used, and in some applications it may even be possible to completely get rid of them.
The new Emparro67 Hybrid switching power supply unit has two integrated MICO channels for electronic current monitoring of, for example, separate system components, sensors, actuators, or in particular of fieldbus modules. In this way, both sensor- and module voltage and actuator voltage of the connected fieldbus systems can be monitored separately. This guarantees maximum operational reliability. The MICO channels for monitoring the two 24 VDC load circuits can be adjusted to different current values. The tripping process applies the principle of “as late as possible, as early as necessary.”
The Emparro67 Hybrid is equipped with an IO-Link interface (M12 connection) and is able to communicate as device with a superior IO-Link master. It is thus possible to use the Emparro67 Hybrid in fully-networked intelligent applications. A concrete application is the monitoring of the device's life span. Companies in the plant construction and mechanical engineering sector can use such predictive maintenance functions for the development of new business models.
