 Pepperl-Fuchs PS3500-DM

Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH has introduced its modular and hot-swappable diagnostic module called the PS3500-DM. The new module real-time diagnostics with configurable warning and alarm levels by monitoring the health and efficiency of PS3500 power supplies and primary-side power conditions. As the PS3500-DM continuously monitors the power-supply system's internal, input and output parameters, it helps eliminate unexpected downtime and promotes proactive maintenance.

According to the manufacturer, the PS3500-DM easily integrates with plant asset-management systems using RS-485, HART (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer), EDDL (Electronic Device Description Language), FDT (Field Device Tool), and DTM (Device Type Manager) technologies. It displays the values of various parameters, along with warning and alarm messages for out-of-tolerance values.

Intended for mission-critical and continuous-process applications, PS3500 power supplies are up to 91 per cent efficient and offer selectable wiring configurations. The 24-VDC, 15-A modules plug directly into a three-position or six-position chassis/backplane for a maximum capacity of 45A or 90A of uninterrupted power, respectively.
