New for SPS 2023: PULS smart power supplies with EtherCAT

  • Experience the power of real-time application data provided by PULS DIN-Rail power supplies with EtherCAT interface.
  • Visit PULS Power at SPS 2023, Nürnberg, Germany, 14 – 16 November
  • Hall 5, Booth 310

PULS, a technology and market leader in DIN-Rail power supplies, will present an innovation in the field of industrial power supplies at SPS 2023: DIN-Rail power supplies and Field Power Supplies equipped with a fully integrated EtherCAT interface. These new products will be on display for the first time at SPS 2023 in Hall 5, Booth 310, the EtherCAT Technology Group.

The integration of the EtherCAT interface allows users to configure and remotely control the power supplies in an efficient and time-saving manner. In addition, it provides access to a variety of measurement data, which enables reliable monitoring and predictive maintenance of both the power supply and the end system.

Application data in real-time:

PULS power supplies with integrated EtherCAT ports can be directly connected to EtherCAT controllers – without the need for additional gateways, providing easy and rapid access to all application data and power supply functions. The real-time capabilities and high-speed transmission of EtherCAT is ideal for maintenance, logging and remote control in large-scale systems.

The power supply data can also be used within real-time control loops. Based on the data, drives or other high-energy users can be controlled in an optimal way to keep the dynamic power needs within the capabilities of the power supply system. This enables improved system efficiency as power supplies can be used at the optimal operating point.

Key benefits of PULS power supplies with EtherCAT interface include:

  • Use real application data to improve the utilisation of end system.
  • Implement preventative maintenance and fix errors before they occur.
  • Reduce energy costs and speed up fault analysis and troubleshooting.

Three models will be available:

  • 240 W or 480 W DIN rail power supplies with EtherCAT
  • Input: AC 100-240 V, DC 110-150 V
  • Output: 24 V, 10 A or 20 A; 48 V, 10 A
  • 2 x RJ45 EtherCAT ports
  • Rated to IP20

  • 600 W FIEPOS Field Power Supply with EtherCAT
  • Input: AC 380 – 480 V
  • Output: 24 V, 25 A
  • 4 eFused outputs
  • M8 A-Coded
  • Rated to IP65/67

PULS offers all the documentation and tools required to integrate their smart power supplies with EtherCAT into customer’s automation networks, enabling direct access to the device data from the PLC or embedded controller.

This includes extensive documentation – from datasheets, data- and interface-description to quick start guides, enabling a fast and easy integration even for users with little experience. In addition, PULS also provides the relevant electronic data files such as IODD for IO Link or ESI files for EtherCAT. As part of their quick start quides PULS also provides sample configurations and programs for selected PLCs and control tools.
