Join our SITOPtech experts and unbox SITOP PSU6200, the all-round power supply for a wide range of applications. What information is printed on the packaging label? What’s included in the scope of delivery? And what are the many connection options? You’ll learn all this and more from the unboxing videos.

Software – it’s easy to select, configure, and diagnose SITOP

Our SITOPtech expert explains the first steps in SITOP Manager

You have chosen the SITOP Manager as a tool for configuring and diagnosing SITOP power supplies? Congratulations – this is a simple and convenient way to bring automation into your system. Here, the first steps in using the software are explained briefly and simply.

The user interface of the SITOP Manager explained by our SITOPtech expert

The SITOP Manager offers various setting options for online engineering SITOP devices. You can find out what can be set in the three main registers here. Did you also know that thanks to a web browser-based user interface, the software also runs on mobile devices and automatically adjusts to the size of the display?

Tutorial videos about SITOP in the TIA Selection Tool

Every automation project requires a power supply. The correct design of the power supply ensures both energy efficiency and optimal performance. With the TIA Selection Tool, you can easily choose, configure, and order SITOP power supply units. The 24 V consumer view in the TIA Selection Tool is especially helpful. Here you can view all the automation products with 24 V infeed that have already been selected and connect them to one or more SITOP power supplies using drag-and-drop. Try it out!

Discover SITOP PSU6200 and SEL1200 in a virtual way

The demo model demonstrates the function and diagnostic capabilities of the SITOP PSU6200 power supply and the SITOP SEL1200 selectivity module in interaction with a SIMATIC S7-1500 PLC and a SIMATIC HMI TP700 Comfort Panel under critical conditions in the DC 24 V control circuit.

You are a distributor and interested in the software?

The software of the demo model SITOP PSU6200/SEL1200 is available in html5 format and can be run on all common browsers. We are happy to support you with the implementation of the software in your webshop.

Tutorial videos about SITOP power supplies with OPC UA

Our SITOP PSU8600 and SITOP UPS1600 power supply systems can also communicate using the OPC UA (Open Platform Communications Unified Architecture) cross-platform standard. It isn’t just PROFINET users who benefit from the numerous technical advantages of communication-capable SITOP power supplies. The OPC UA data module also gives users access to all parameterization functions and diagnostics and operating information of PSU8600 and UPS1600.

Tutorial videos about the SITOP PSE200U selectivity module

Industrial automation technology requires a constant, reliable supply of a 24 V control voltage. In the event of a short-circuit or temporary overload, however, switched-mode power supply units shut off or at least limit the output current. Consequently, all the consumers in the control circuit are underpowered, resulting in plant outage and production downtime.

With the SITOP PSE200U selectivity module, you can easily and effectively prevent this. The module distributes the load current across several 24 V load circuits and monitors them reliably for overload and short-circuit conditions. Find out how you can benefit from electronic monitoring.

The importance of protecting your plant explained by our SITOPtech expert

The quality of the power supply unit alone can’t guarantee a fault-free, 24-V supply. Have any power failures, extreme variations in the mains voltage or a faulty load ever occured in your plant? This can bring your plant operation to a standstill and cause high costs. Find out how to best secure your plant.
