Power Supplies & Regulation

Industrial power supplies are electrical devices that draw power from input sources, change it into usable forms, and supply it to the load of interest. These supplies can take AC or DC power as input and transform it to supply the load. They are designed to work in industrial settings and might be part of a long list of power supplies used in any number of applications. Some of these supplies might have approvals for use in specific situations, while others could be more generic in nature and might find use just about anywhere.

Uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) offer almost immediate defense against failures of the input power source. By providing backup power, they secure power to operations until power returns or until the machines can be safely shut down. This power safety mechanism is especially important in industries that cannot afford to experience extended power downtime and/or power quality problems, as can be the case with sensitive equipment in certain power supply schemes.

Transformers transfer electric energy from one AC circuit to another by devices capable of altering the voltage level, either to increase (step-up) or reduce (step-down) it. The improvement to the technology and the widespread adoption of transformers has made it possible to effect these changes efficiently and safely in power systems, whether it be in our homes or in power systems across the land via long-distance distribution.

DC to DC voltage converters are electrical devices that take in one DC voltage and transform it into another, different DC voltage. These converters can either step up or step down the input voltage. They are often used in electrical control panels, where they provide a way of taking the variety of voltages that are generated by the many different components of the panel and transforming them into the two or three voltages that the panel requires.
