Applied power

Puls UK has announced its new Q-series single-phase unit, the 1kW QS40. This 40A unit measures 125 by 124 by 127mm and weighs 1.5kg.
The QS40s size allows multiple units in parallel to suit applications requiring additional power. Efficiency exceeding 94 per cent eliminates the need for fan cooling allowing the devices to be mounted side-by-side on the DIN-rail. A maximum inrush current of only 14A allows lighter cabling without compromising safety and reliability.
With power reserves of 150 per cent the QS40 is ideal for starting heavy equipment such as DC motors or capacitive loads.
Puls UKs managing director, Harry Moore, said: The new QS40 is an important addition to our range because it offers so many benefits to our customers. For example, until now if an application needed one kilowatt of power designers would have to use two units, now they only need one. That means less space, lower cost and improved reliability.
