Diode Power Supplies for Redundant Applications

Phoenix Contact USA

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s new Quint Diode power supplies are designed for redundant applications that require isolation and N+1 redundancy. Versions are available for use in both 12-24 V DC and 48 V DC operations.

The power supplies’ housings are made of extruded aluminum for improved cooling and longer service life.  This also decreases the heat load in cabinets.

The Quint Diodes use MOSFETs, rather than Schottky or silicon diodes used in most redundant power supplies. These MOSFETs are up to 70 percent more efficient than standard diode components.  This limits the effect of a diode module on the load of the power supplies.

The Quint Diodes carry UL 508 Listing as well as Class I, Division 2 Listing, making them well suited for installation in critical process industry applications.
