Handling High Power When Moving Automation from Lab to Production

May 14, 2024
Be it power supplies or regenerative electronic loads, proper power management is needed for efficiency and safety

Choosing and utilizing power supplies, bidirectional power supplies, and regenerative electronic loads on the order of 60 kW is not an easy task but one that designers need to work well with to deliver efficient and safe power solutions for their applications. The task of moving a process from the lab to the factory can be done in a flexible, reliable and cost-effective manner while creating a future-proof solution. This whitepaper delves into the ways to utilize high power density solutions in a manageable and compact form factor.
