The reliability of the control system for an elevator is paramount. A power supply failure will always result in an expensive field service call, significantly higher than the original cost of the power supply. Elevators are designed to last many years, and the manufacturer chose TDK-Lambda’s RWS600B-24 power supply based on a favourable price-performance ratio. The local support team showed that with a five-year warranty, ten-year electrolytic capacitor lifetimes and conservative component ratings, the RWS-B series is ideally suited for applications requiring a long field life.
