Are there models available that support series operation?
The following table shows the models that support series connection of outputs.
Models Supporting Series Connection of Outputs
|Model||Power ratings||Rated output voltage|
|S82K||90, 100 W||24 VDC|
|S82J||100 W||5, 12, 15, 24 VDC|
|50, 150, 300, 600 W||24 VDC|
|S8TS||25, 30, 60 W||5, 12, 24 V|
|S8VS||15, 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, 240 W||24 VDC|
|S8VM||15, 30, 50, 100, 150, 300, 600, 1,500 W||5, 12, 15, 24 VDC|
Series operation cannot be used with Power Supplies that are not listed in the table above. If Series operation is used with those Power Supplies, the output may not start in one of the Power Supplies and its internal circuits may be damaged if left in that state.
When using series operation with Power Supplies listed in the preceding table, the Power Supplies may have different output capacities and output voltages, but the current flowing through the load must be less than the rated output current of the Power Supply with the lower output capacity.
If an S82J-05024, S82J-10024, S8TS-02505, or S8VS Power Supply is being used and the load is shorted, a reverse voltage may be generated in the Power Supply, damaging the Power Supply or causing it to fail.
Diode type: Schottky barrier diode
Dielectric strength (VRRM): At least twice the Power Supply's rated output voltage
Forward current (IF): At least twice the rated output voltage of the Power Supply
