TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the TDK-Lambda DRB series of DIN rail power supplies for low power applications that require less space on the mounting rail.
Designed to support the growing trend for simple and economic DIN power solutions in industrial, building automation and process control applications, the DRB series combines low cost and extremely compact dimensions with industry leading efficiency of up to 91%. No load power consumption is between <0.3W and <0.5W depending on the model type.
“Customers are demanding DIN rail power supplies that can deliver high reliability in smaller packages” states David Norton, VP Marketing for TDK-Lambda Americas. “We believe that these are the smallest products of their kind on the market.”
Housed in a robust plastic case, the DRB series offer a narrow design, ranging from 18mm to 45mm, saving vital space on the DIN rail. The smallest model measures just 18mm x 75mm x 90mm (DRB15-24-1); all DRB models will mount on either a TS35/7.5 or TS35/15 DIN rail offering engineers a flexible option for various applications. In addition, they have been rigorously tested for shock and vibration while mounted onto the rail.
The supplies operate from a universal input of 85~264Vac and have EN61000-3-2 compliance, enabling worldwide use; moreover, they can withstand input voltage surges of 300Vac for 5 seconds. The DRB series is available with 4 output power levels ranging from 15 – 100W and nominal output voltages of 5V, 12-15V, 24-28V or 48Vdc.
The supplies can operate at full load over a wide temperature range of -10 to +55°C (+70°C for 15W model). Typical ripple and noise is below 40mV and a green LED indicates DC OK. Other features include over-current, over-voltage protection and a hold-up time of up to 20ms at 100Vac input voltage, full load.
The DRB series is approved to UL508 safety standard for industrial control equipment. Further safety approvals include IEC/EN 60950-1 (2nd Ed.) and UL/CSA 60950-1. CE marked in accordance with the LV Directive, EMC Directive and RoHS Directive, the power supplies are designed to meet EN55022 and CISPR22 Class B for conducted and radiated EMI, and come with a three-year warranty.
