The PS2000 device series

Power Supply Also Can Collect System Data

Jan. 25, 2023
The PS2000 variants from Beckhoff can remotely collect additional measurement and device diagnostics for comprehensive system monitoring.

The PS2000 device series from Beckhoff features a built-in EtherCAT interface. The PS2000 power supplies can remotely collect additional measurement and device diagnostics for comprehensive system monitoring, which can increase availability and reduce downtime. As a result, the feature-filled power supplies combine compact design and high performance with predictive maintenance functionality for the first time.

The new PS2000 variants combine high-performance power supply units from Beckhoff with the EtherCAT communication standard. This allows the control system to directly process extensive measurement data and internal device diagnostics information and establish remote access to power supplies. It also provides advanced monitoring features for the DC output (for system monitoring) or the AC input (for source monitoring).

Beckhoff offers single-phase, 24 V DC power supplies as both 10 A and 20 A variants with an output power of 240 and 480 W, respectively. A 10 A variant with 480 W is available for the 48 V DC power supply. A state-of-the-art electronics layout achieves high efficiency of more than 96%. In addition to inrush current limitation and active harmonic correction (PFC), Beckhoff power supplies offer a flexible wide-range input voltage suitable for worldwide use on the input side.
