Reliable power supplies for power generation control cabinets
Long term reliability is paramount when generating electricity. Power plants are expected to operate for decades with anticipated life-times in excess of 50 years. Although retrofits are carried out on a regular basis to ensure the latest technology is used, many of the control equipment cabinets are expected to last a minimum of ten years.
When considering which 1000W power supplies to use in their new control cabinets, one manufacturer asked other installers for their recommendations. TDK-Lambda’s HWS1000 power supply was selected, and for additional protection, the /HD option code was chosen, which includes board coating to reduce the impact of any contaminants. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the HWS series is designed using conservative component ratings for extended field life.
TDK-Lambda offers a wide range of standard Industrial Power Supplies for industrial, test and measurement applications. For more information about the HWS series, please visit: www.emea.lambda.tdk.com/uk/hws
