The failures of a machine can cause high costs. In order to prevent this, electrical engineers take extensive measures to increase the reliability of their machines and installations. Murrelektronik offers a solution with the new redundancy module: MB Diode.
MB Diode decouples with power supply units. If a power supply fails, this module will integrate a connected spare power supply unit without interrupting operation. In the sense of a redundant design, all power supply units are integrated into the supply system through one or several modules of the MB diode series.
The redundancy module from Murrelektronik does not only provide an immediate solution, it also reports the problem to the control with integrated signal contacts. In addition, the failure is indicated via LEDs located directly on the MB diode module.
MB Diode is contained in a compact housing. A similar housing is used for MICO, Murrelektronik's intelligent power distribution system. Thanks to a bridge system, several redundancy modules can be connected together or to MICO modules. This considerably reduces wiring efforts. Spring clamp terminals can be easily connected to cables with wide diameters.
