PWR-ME3KX-AC

AC input power supply

PWR-ME3KX-DC

DC input power supply


The AC input power supply module is an autoranging unit that supports input voltages between 100 and 240 VAC. The AC power supply modules ship with a power cord to connect to an AC power outlet.

The DC input power supply module has a single input feed and supports input voltages from 18 to 32 VDC or 36 to 72 VDC. The DC power supply module ships with a terminal block to be wired for DC power outlet connections. The terminal block is covered by a clear plastic block cover that snaps onto the terminal block. You must remove the block cover before you work with the wires. The block cover is slotted so that the wires can exit only one end. If you want the wires to exit in a different direction, remove the block cover, rotate it, and snap it back on.

Each power supply is cooled by three internal fans. A fan failure triggers an alarm. When a fan fails, replace the power supply immediately.


Caution Both slots must be occupied either by two power supplies or a power supply and a fan module. Do not run the switch with an empty slot unless you are replacing a faulty power supply or fan module. Running the switch with an empty slot triggers an alarm.
