High efficiency and ultra-compact design.

Lainate, July 2020 - Carlo Gavazzi Automation, the international electronics group with activities in the design, manufacture and marketing of electronic equipment, today presents the new SPMA series, very compact DIN rail power supplies designed for electrical panels with limited space.

The SPMA series consists of 3 frame sizes, starting from 1 DIN (17.5 mm) for the 15 W to a maximum of 4 DIN (70 mm) for the 100 W model. The low-profile design of SPMA makes it ideal for applications such as building automation and electric car battery chargers. At the same time its robust design also makes it suitable for applications in industrial automation.

The high quality of the SPMA power supplies is certified by approvals like: CE, UL508, UL 62368, UL1310 Class 2, ISA Class1 Div 2.

The SPMA series comes with 4 kVAC isolation voltage, which is a mandatory requirement for electrical vehicle charging stations. These power supplies are also extremely suitable for applications where high efficiency and wide operating temperature are required. Integrated diagnostics and protection functions such as Over Current (OVC), Over Voltage (OVP), Short Circuit (SCP) provide maximum Output protection. The complete range of the SPMA series conforms to stress tests, conducted at full load and elevated temperature.

“The SPMA is the perfect solution to improve the overall performance and reliability of the SPM series. This new series duly meets customers’ requests in having advanced features in a compact housing,” Matteo Pinciroli, International Product Specialist, says. “With this launch it is our intention to strengthen Carlo Gavazzi’s product offerings by enhancing the line of power supplies, targeted at specific applications.”

The SPMA series is specifically designed to provide the ideal solution for electric car battery chargers, and in markets such as the Building and Industrial automation.
