Power supplies

Quint SFB industrial-grade power supplies feature a 20A output at 12VDC. According to the company, the unit's Selective Fuse Breaking (SFB) technology allows supplemental branch circuit protection on the DC bus to operate as designed in a control system. Upon sensing a fault condition, the technology delivers a short peak of current (up to six times nominal current) to the faulted load, ensuring the standard branch protection interrupts the circuit as designed. The product also incorporates extra diagnostic feedback elements
