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.

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!
