Maximum Machine Availability

15 March 2013

To maximise availability, power supply systems in machinery are often designed with redundancy using two separate power supply units.

Murrelektronik’s new cabinet component, MB Redundancy Balance, optimises such systems.

It decouples the two power supply units and ensures an automatic 50:50 balancing of power between the two units. Therefore, both units are evenly engaged and the load isn't only on one device. Both units are able to work together: neither unit sits idle and neither unit has to work at its limit. For example: if the load current required is 10A, MB Redundancy Balance ensures that both units supply 5A.

MB Redundancy Balance operates with an innovative technology based on MOSFET. The internal consumption of the modules is up to 87% less than those of conventional diode modules.
