Powerbox’s new ENI250A microprocessor-controlled power supply has been selected by the Electronics Industry Awards voting panel as a finalist in the highly competitive Power Product of the Year category.
“Powerbox’s ENI250A microprocessor-controlled power supply being chosen as a finalist in the Power Product of the Year category is testimony not only to its high level of innovation but, particularly, it is a measure of the forward thinking of Powerbox in developing and driving power systems to new levels of safety, simultaneously contributing to the formation of greener, planet-friendly systems and equipment,” Said Tatsuo Yamamoto, Powerbox (PRBX) CEO.“ It is this ‘thinking outside the box’ that drives and enables Powerbox to constantly come up with world-beating solutions to problems that others have struggled to solve.”
Now in its third year, the Electronics Industry Awards 2020 – run by Components in Electronics magazine of the Datateam portfolio – tallies votes from the industry via an online vote, with the expert opinion of its judges, a panel of six electronics heavyweights and industry figures.
On the announcement of the shortlist, CIE’s editor Niamh Marriott said: “A massive congratulations to the shortlisted candidates of the Electronics Industry Awards 2020 and the best of luck to all for the final win. Despite the huge difficulties currently facing our industry, and indeed our way of life, I continue to remain impressed by the work ethic and commitment of the electronics sector to keep innovating. The awards will offer a chance for positive reflection, and to recognise the enormous achievements from the past year. I’m delighted that we’ve had more entries than ever before, and that the industry continues to support and participate with our annual event. I look forward to celebrating with you all in due course.”
Addressing 24VDC motors, the 250W ENI250A24 can deliver 480W peak power for one second, sustain high capacitive loads and manage energy recycling when a DC motor is decelerating or stopping. This function is very important for energy saving and to increase equipment lifetime. For higher power or redundancy, the ENI250A24 can simply be paralleled. The unit has an operating temperature range from -25 to +70 degree Centigrade.
The ENI250A24 includes soft-start, over current, voltage and temperature protection. An LED indicator informs the status of the power supply and a DC-OK signal and remote reset provide for easy integration within the conveyer operation management system. It is designed using Powerbox’s reliable power platform concept and uses an active power factor correction (PFC) in combination with a high efficiency and compact LLC topology.
