A new DC/AC inverter is part of the Phoenix Contact Quint Power family: the company says that machine builders now have a compact solution to generate alternating current in DC applications
The new inverter for DIN rails is said to provide a pure sine curve at the output, with manual selection of the AC output voltage via a signal terminal to enable the unit to be used worldwide. An integrated USB interface can be used to connect to industrial PCs and the inverter can be switched in parallel. With the parallel connection of two devices, Phoenix Contact says it is possible to increase the operational safety of systems in the event of power supply failure, or to double the power on the output side.
Connecting three devices in parallel creates a three-phase grid and the three devices communicate with each other in real time, thereby synchronising the 120° phase shift. This means that AC drives can also be operated. Comprehensive signaling options are available and the confirmed operating temperature range is wide, from -25°Celsius to +60°Celsius.
