Quint Power – 4G Power Supply with NFC

From |

QUINT Power - 4G Power supplyHave you heard of Phoenix Contact’s QUINT POWER range of power supplies?

If you have not, where were you!

Our QUINT power supplies have been consistently making waves as THE power supply fit for any industrial use.

It is that good that Phoenix Contact has released the fourth generation of the high-performance QUINT POWER range, only this time it’s spearheading the industry by embracing the spirit of IIOT.

Tell us MORE about this QUINT

Our QUINT POWER is the one and only power supply in the market to incorporate Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

This feature is the latest addition to the already proven power supply unit that comes with SFB (Selective Fuse Breaking) technology, preventive function monitoring, high noise immunity as well as Power Boost.

Wait, What’s Power Boost?

QUINT 4 Power Supplies dynamic boost

The Power Boost technology allows the power supply unit to withstand indefinitely 125% or tolerate up to 200% of its maximum rated output current for 5 seconds without malfunctioning.

You heard that right, up to 200% of its maximum output current unlike others who would be fried to a crisp right about now.

Not just a Power Boost but empowering People too!

This technology allows users; engineers or technicians, to read and download configuration data of the power supply with any NFC enabled devices such as smartphones or tablets.

All you need is an Android device and you’re good to go.

This will also be handy at industrial sites during commissioning or maintenance where more often than not, there will be unforeseen circumstances where configuration cables are misplaced or worse laptops are not downloaded with the configuration software.

Another practical advantage is that the NFC technology allows configuration to be done in places that have low accessibility.

Examples are hard to reach places such power supply units that are installed at tight, very high or very low positions where it is difficult to carry a laptop.

Laptops can be bulky and requires a power supply to read power supplies (oh the irony). With smartphones and NFC, you could read data through the palms of your hands.

The QUINT POWER configuration App can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store.

Say goodbye to legacy multi-meters and expensive devices!  Who says you can’t use your phones on the job.

I’m super excited now! Tell me more…..

Configuration data such as device details, output voltage, output characteristics, signalling and control input mode can now be read, configured and then be downloaded without any need for physical cabling to the power supply.

Surely with the QUINT you’ll be seeing increase in productivity.

Without the access baggage -laptop and configuration cable – it reduces the time needed for configuration especially for projects with large quantities of power supply units.

The QUINT POWER power supply range can be used in various industries such as oil and gas, transportation, water, marine, power and chemical facilities as well as in the factory automation and manufacturing facilities where reliability and technical superiority are highly valued.

So if you’re looking for POWER SUPPLIES, look no further.

Our QUINT 4 is your answer.

With NFC enabled you’ll be giving your business the power of electricity, in your hands.

DC/DC converters now available for more voltage levels

From |

The Quint Power product range from Phoenix Contact has been extended to include six new DC/DC converters, which cover additional voltage levels with increased functionality.

Verkehr

In addition to the new devices for voltage levels 12 and 48 V DC, there are now two more devices on offer with wide range input. These convert input voltages in the range between 42 to 96 V DC and 67 to 154 V DC into an electrically isolated, adjustable 24 V DC output voltage. This means that the nominal voltage levels 60 and 110 V DC, such as those that arise in the energy sector, can be covered. Thanks to the electrical isolation between the input and output voltage, independent supply systems can be established, and monitored in a preventative manner. Two additional devices which are specially designed for the input voltage range for railway applications complete the product range. They satisfy railway standard EN 50155 with their protective coating. They can also be used in other demanding environments.

All DC/DC converters support Power Boost, which permanently supplies 1.25 times the nominal current. What’s more, the devices feature Selective Fuse Breaking Technology (SFB), which supplies six times the nominal current for 12 ms, thereby reliably tripping standard circuit breakers. Comprehensive diagnostics are provided through constant monitoring of the input and output voltage and output current. Preventive function monitoring visualizes critical operating states and reports them to the controller before errors can occur.
