80W DIN Rail Power Supplies for Hazardous Environments

March 13, 2019 by Scott McMahan

Traco Power released of their TIB 80-EX Family of 80W DIN rail power supplies for harsh environments and hazardous locations with certifications for ATEX II3G and UL HazLoc Class I / Div 2 standards. These industrial power products feature 12V/24V/48V outputs (-2% to +17% VADJ Range). They offer high-efficiency operation of 88% to 90% and 150% peak power for 4 seconds.

The boost power from the power supplies can facilitate the activation of stepper motors, solenoids, and actuators.

Packaged in a ruggedized metal enclosure that is EN61373 qualified for railway shock and vibration, the DIN rail power supplies feature protection circuits including back power immunity, short-circuit, over-load protection, and a dc-OK dry signal contact. DC-OK LED indicators on both the front and side panels with optional side panel mounting enable use in flat panels. The case allows the fixing of the DIN-rail clip to the side wall for the mounting inside flat panels.

The product's reduced heat dissipation allows a -40°C to +60°C full load operating temperature range (up to +70°C operation with 20% de-rating). Outputs are radio-interference-suppressed to impede radiation at long output lines. This filter reduces the common mode current to within limits of telecommunication ports.

The units operate with a high power factor of up to 99% with active power factor correction, which also minimizes input inrush current. All models are safety approved to meet UL/EN 60950-1, UL508 listed, EN 600079-0/-7/-15, ATEX II3G and UL HazLoc Class I, Division 2 with EN55032 Class B for both conducted and radiated emissions. High reliability of greater than 1 million hours per IEC 60079-0 is supported by TRACO POWER's extended 5-year product warranty.
