Matsushita Electric Works (MEW) UK has recently added a new, compact Power Supply Unit (PSU) to its range of factory automation products.

The FP-PS4-050E measures just 115mm x 42mm x 75mm, and can reliably supply 2.1A of current at 24VDC from a 240VAC input.

The PSU has a peak-to-peak ripple voltage of less than 240mV, and short circuit, over-voltage and overload protection are all featured on the device.

With an input voltage range of 85 to 265VAC, the 24VDC 2.1A device caters for all input variances and allows global use, with a list of approvals including CE, EN and UL/cUL.

The unit is packaged in an encapsulated housing with wiring connections being made through two connectors on both the primary and secondary sides of the device.

Incorporated into the secondary stage is a Power OK output signal informing of the PSU status for use with intelligent devices; this is in addition to the Green LED indication for visual recognition of the devices status.

Designed and approved to operate with MEW-UK’s range of factory automation devices, the unit is available now.
