How does the sensor get its power
Selecting the right power supply is the basis for high machine productivity. Today mostly switching power supplies are used, which convert an input voltage (AC) of 230 V/110 V into an output voltage (DC) of 24 V.
Voltage conversion and supply
To select just the right power supply for your requirements, note the following criteria:
In addition to this criteria you should also take into account the ambient temperature and – if necessary – make any modifications (e.g. cooling). Only then is maximum performance of the power supply assured.
You should also consider how the power supply responds to overload. Depending on the version (e.g. Powerboost* or Hiccup**) inrush currents or fast peak loads will be withstood better or worse.
