Enable Increased Output Power Delivery Through Parallel ConnectionRICHMOND (November 7, 2004) – Weidmuller’s new CP DM 10 (10 Amp module) and CP DM 20 (20 Amp module) Diode modules have been designed to enhance its ConnectPower series of power supplies by enabling parallel connectivity of two or more power supplies for either power redundancy purposes (commonly found in process control applications), or as a way to deliver increased power to the load (heavy manufacturing automation applications). Weidmuller’s Diode modules enable customers to parallel two power supplies to increase the reliability of a process control system by providing redundant power sources. In this case, customers parallel two power supplies even though only one could meet the power needs of the control panel. If a power supply fails, the second stand-by power supply takes over and supplies the needed power to the load. This assures customers of 100% system uptime. The second application supplies the amount of power required by a load beyond what a single power supply can deliver. In this application, parallel connectivity of two power supplies enable users to deliver the needed power to a load by adding up the individual power each power supply can deliver.It is important to keep in mind that before paralleling power supplies, their output voltage must be calibrated to be within ±50mV of each other, and the parallel connection must be positioned as close as possible to the load.Unlike competitive modules, each Weidmuller Diode module is 100% load tested in worse-case-scenario conditions to ensure full operation before shipment. It is this kind of thorough testing that assures customers of receiving a quality product that is among the most reliable ones in the industry. Like its new ECOLINE power supplies, Weidmuller’s Diode modules are cost effective solutions to supply power to electronics located in control panels used in manufacturing automation, process control, robotic operations, and machinery control settings. List price of the CP DM 10 10A Diode Module is $90. List price of the CP DM 20 20A Diode Module is $140.W Interconnections, Inc. is the exclusive master distributor in the U.S. for Weidmuller branded products for Germany-based Weidmuller Interface GmbH and Company—the world’s leading supplier of electrical connection technology such as terminal blocks, printed circuit board terminals and connectors, relay sockets and plugs, and power supplies.
