Industrial automation power challenges (Part 2)

This application note is Part 2 of a two-part series on high-voltage synchronous regulators in industrial automation power-supply design. Part 1 discusses the industrial control architecture and the power-supply demands and dilemma. In Part 2 of the series, we discuss how new power supplies incorporate synchronous switching technology, yet can withstand voltage spikes up to 60V and supply up to 3.5A, something that was previously impractical. These capabilities ease industrial automation system power-supply design by improving efficiency and, in turn, lowering heat generation and power consumption, reducing component footprint, and limiting the number of discrete external components.
