Universal power module
SERCOM has developed a universal power module. This module makes it possible to operate wireless field stations as a stand-alone unit, powered by solar panels and batteries. This power supply is universal and can therefore not only be used in combination with Sercom equipment. It can also be used for other applications in combination with solar panels, batteries or other DC voltage sources.
This new power supply module is primarily intended for powering computer systems in situations where no mains power is available. You can think of situations where only battery power is available with the help of solar panels or a diesel pump. Irrigation systems in the open field, for example. The module provides a nominal output voltage of 28VDC. This can be used to power both the field station electronics and any existing taps or relay boxes.
The output voltage is stabilised and completely galvanically isolated from the power source, to increase the application possibilities and safety of battery-powered systems. A single module provides a maximum output power of 45W (1.6A).
Featuring a unique thermal load bass launch, multiple modules can simply be connected in parallel. This way it is possible to increase the total available output power as required.
