DRF DIN Rail Power Supplies

Designers of energy efficient smart buildings strive to lower cooling costs, while maintaining a pleasant work environment. The amount of sunlight coming through windows can now be automatically restricted using horizontal or vertically mounted blinds fitted between the panes of glass. This reduces the amount of air conditioning needed to keep a building cool, yet let natural light through.

The designers of one window system chose TDK-Lambda’s 120W rated 5-year warranty DRF DIN rail mounted supply to power their DC motors and control system. Not only could the power supply provide 150% peak power, the ErP compliant design is up to 94% efficient and consumes less than 0.5W when off-load. Samples were quickly supplied from stock to assist the customer’s time to market.
