MEAN WELL have launched a new PCB type switching power supply, PSC-60 Series, for the fast growing security industry.  Similar to AD-55 and AD-155 Series this new unit has an additional charger output, with a smaller power rating, to fulfil the special requirements of security, monitoring or back up related applications.  Compared to the AD-55, PSC-60 has 5 times more charging capability that can significantly reduce the charge time of a system.  With additional TTL alarm signals and 4″ x 2″ miniature design PSC-60 is suitable for low cost system cabinet applications.

Designed using MEAN WELL’s high performance switching technology, the efficiency of PSC-60 is improved by 10% on the AD-55 units, so it can work under 70°C of high ambient temperature using only free air convection. PSC-60 Series possesses full alarm signals, in compliance with the demands of security systems, which include AC OK and battery low alarms. When the power is off and the system goes into battery back up mode, a TTL signal will be sent out to remind the user to react. If the battery voltage drops to 11V (for 12V battery bank) or 22V (for 24V battery bank), another TTL alarm signal will be sent out to notify the “battery low” situation.  The battery back up loop will be cut off when the battery voltage goes down further to 10.5V or 21V to prevent batteries from over discharging.

Protections for PSC-60 include short circuit, over load, and over voltage on the output side and battery polarity protection (by fuse) and battery low cut off for the battery side. Team all of these features with global safety certificates for UL, CUL, TUV, CE and CB PSC-60 offers a good power choice for security systems, emergency lighting systems, UPS systems, central monitoring systems and  automatic door systems.
