Power supplies convert AC input into DC output, for example for running motors. They can be classed as linear or switched-mode power supplies. Linear power supplies use power transformers to convert AC input voltage to the desired DC output. Linear power supplies are simple, economical and highly available. Because they use a transformer to make the conversion, they tend to be bulky and heavy, however.
Switched power supplies are available from Motion Solutions across voltages ranging from 3.3 V up to 75 V. Purpose-specific versions are available, for example offering regenerative capabilities for multi-axis servo-motor systems. We also carry switched power supplies for medical applications, as well as safety-rated versions with built-in redundancy. Other units simplify maintenance with built-in timers and displays that show an alert when the unit is ready for replacement.
