Products > Power management > Intelligent Power Switch IPS60

The IPS60 can be used intelligently to supply the power of measuring technology and computers in three operating modes and with freely definable state machines.

In each operating mode, the measuring equipment with the low voltage drop can be switched on and off via CAN and control signal plus with the IPS60 button, as well as the voltage and the configurable current limit can be monitored and also the shutdown control of a computer via USB or RS-232 interface.

1) In the Normal mode, this is done with a single IPS60.
2) In the Port Expansion mode, this is done with several IPS60s in order to obtain several measurement technology or computer segments.
In Backup Power Supply mode, two IPS60s can provide a continuous power supply, even if the primary voltage source collapses or is discharged.

In addition, each IPS60 has a three-digit status display, a buzzer and powerful GPIO inputs and outputs for connecting external switches/buttons or relays.

The flow control via state machine can be freely created with the corresponding StateEdit2 program for Windows™ with many examples or can be easily adapted using a established state machine. In the StateEdit2 debugging environment, this can be analyzed in detail in a single step or in real time.

The IPS60 is a compact unit that can intelligently replace relays, a 1A...60A fuse and manual switches while far superior. The display of the current switching current, the supply voltage and the state of the flow control are particularly practical.
