SITOP PSU8600 – the unique power supply system with PROFINET
SITOP PSU8600 is the first power supply system with a complete integration in Totally Integrated Automation. This not only pays off in engineering in the TIA Portal or in manufacturer-independent communication systems, but also in operation. For example, voltage and current can be individually adjusted for each output, and the integrated overload protection enables each output to be monitored. Other modules from the system toolbox can be added to suit requirements with no wiring overhead, for example to buffer power failures. Comprehensive diagnostic and maintenance information is available via PROFINET. SITOP provides the best possible support for power management for plants or machines, from recording power data from individual outputs to switching outputs on and off via PROFIenergy. In this way, the SITOP PSU8600 is setting new standards in plant reliability and efficiency.
Integrated power supply and systemComplex facilities place high demands on the efficiency, flexibility, and reliability of their components. The innovative SITOP PSU8600 power supply system satisfies them all – thanks to its unique functionality, diagnostic capability, full integration in TIA, open communication networks, and modular expandibility.
Easy to integrate – easy to use
If only everything were this simple: SITOP PSU8600 can be fully integrated in networked automation applications and the TIA Portal. Engineering in the TIA Portal is very user-friendly, thanks in part to prefabricated SIMATIK-S7 function blocks for data analysis and free WinCC faceplates for operation and monitoring. The Ethernet/PROFINET interface makes integration in networked machines and systems easy. And SITOP PSU8600 uses the OPC UA interface to also communicate with systems from other manufacturers. The user-friendly SITOP Manager can be used for configuration as well as the associated operation and monitoring. The integrated Web server enables remote access.
Powerful and functional – many options
Well-designed down to the smallest detail: With the 1- and 3-phase SITOP PSU8600, you can configure, commission, and operate machines and systems even faster and more cost effectively. Why? The base units feature an efficiency rate of up to 94 percent and a space-saving design; plus the outputs can be selectively monitored and flexibly set between 4V and 28 V, even during operation. In addition, you can assemble the power supply system with the modular system toolbox consisting of the PSU 8600 base units as well as the CNX, BUF, and UPS modules to suit your individual needs. Thanks to the System Clip Link, you can even accomplish this without additional module wiring. The continuous current and voltage measurement of all outputs also supports energy management and targeted switching off during breaks, for example, via PROFIenergy.
Reliability – high availability
A systematic approach to availability: SITOP PSU8600. The power supply system's comprehensive diagnostic options allow faults and overload conditions to be detected, assigned, and repaired at an early stage. All outputs are individually monitored and selectively switched off in the event of a fault. As a result, a short circuit or an overload at a single consumer won't shut down the entire system. The voltage and current thresholds can be adjusted for each output. The system’s own buffer modules come into play in the event of power failures lasting seconds or minutes. For protection from longer power failures, the DC UPS module can buffer for several hours. Thanks to battery modules used for energy storage, processes can be maintained and PCs can be shut down safely.
Did you know that you can use SITOP Manager to …… configure and diagnose SITOP PSU8600 on Windows 7 or 10? Make it easy on yourself: Use the free SITOP Manager software to easily integrate the SITOP PSU8600 power supply system and the SITOP UPS500 and UPS1600 uninterruptible power supplies into open systems.
Powerful and uncompromisingly safe
With the SITOP Manager software, all SITOP PSU8600 and SITOP DC UPSs in a network can be parameterized and diagnosed using a PC with the Windows 7 or 10 operating system. This is ideal especially if the system configuration and programming doesn’t take place via the TIA Portal or SIMATIC Step 7. Thanks to the Web browser-based user interface, the application can also run on mobile devices and automatically adapts to the display size. Communication between the SITOP Manager and the power supply takes place via OPC UA, the open, manufacturer-independent, and Ethernet-based communication standard. This meets extremely high safety standards.
