Phoenix Contact launches power supply with SIL 3 certificationThe new Quint Power power supply from Phoenix Contact enables users to achieve high operational safety, even for demanding applications. The Plus version with protective coating and ATEX/IECEx approval can be used in potentially explosive areas (zone 2). It has an integrated decoupling MOSFET and double overvoltage protection with SIL 3 certification.

The static boost, which provides up to 125 per cent of the nominal current for a sustained period, enables easy system expansion. Heavy loads can also be started easily thanks to the dynamic boost, which provides up to 150 per cent of the nominal current for five seconds. With a mains failure buffer time of at least 20ms and an integrated gas discharge tube for high electrical noise immunity up to 6kV, the device has a robust input side.

Comprehensive signalling with analogue, digital, and relay contacts provides preventive function monitoring. It reports critical operating states before errors occur. Thanks to the wide operating temperature range of –40 to +75degC, the Plus version is also suitable for use in extreme environmental conditions.
