From a first view it is easy to oversee the features that makes QUINT4 from Phoenix Contact outstanding. There are several, e.g. the option to pre-define customized settings in an app or software and upload these via NFC to the power supply. This feature actually allows to configure many QUINT4s easily with the same settings, but also to change or adjust uploaded settings even of an already installed unit quickly.
Even better, imagine there is a power supply that has the intelligence to trigger alarms or provide the option to monitor data from a system. With the 4-20mA output that is available on QUINT4, it is possible to indicate critical operating states before an error occurs. Especially for motion control systems where mechanical parts like bearings or bushes play an essential role and need regular exchange to ensure smooth and presice positioning, this can be of huge benefit. If, for instance a bearing comes to its life-end the increasing friction would require an increased force from a motor, so would cause a higher power consumption which could be used to trigger events from the analogue output for predictive maintenance purposes.
The above are just a few of innovative features which makes QUINT4 more than just a another power supply.
