Most power supplies on the market today give no feedback on their long term health, but the introduction of Balluff’s IP67 intelligent power supplies with Heartbeat™ technology allows maintenance crews to get reliable feedback on the real-time and long-term status of the supply, and allows them to predict the replacement and maintenance cycle of the supply. According to the company, benefits include:
- Highly energy efficient (>93 percent efficiency).
- Electrically durable (power boot 150 percent for 4 seconds).
- Long lasting (minimum service life of 15 years).
- Mechanically durable (IP67 rated, vibration and shock resistant).
