Sizing the Flex I/O Power Supply

FAQs

How do I size my Flex I/O Power Supply?

Some of my Flex I/O Chassis Modules require both 24VDC and consume Flexbus current. How do these affect the sizing of my Flex I/O Power Supply?

Definitions -

Module Supply Voltage: This is typically either 120VAC or +24VDC nominal voltage that is supplied from an external power source wired to the module terminal base.

Flexbus current: This is the "logic current" consumed by the module. The Flex Adapter provides a +5VDC supply via it's internal connector through the successive module terminal base connectors that are attached to it.

Flexbus current consumed by a module has NO affect on the sizing of the Flex I/O Power Supply.

Flex I/O chassis Flexbus current is limited by what current the adapter 5VDC supply can support across the terminal base internal Flexbus connectors .

The adapter can supply 640mA max @ 5VDC (1794-ASB/1794-ACN(R)15) and because no more than 8 Flex modules can be connected to an adapter, no combination of 8 Flex modules will ever draw more than the adapter can supply.

Sizing the Flex I/O Power Supply -

The 1794-PS1 Flex I/O Power Supply is capable of supplying 1A maximum @24VDC and the output surge current of the 1794-PS1 is sufficient to drive 3 adapters (surge of 23A for 2ms each) operating @ 24VDC..

The 1794-PS13 Flex I/O Power Supply is capable of supplying 1.3A maximum @24VDC and the output

surge current of the 1794-PS13 is sufficient to drive 4 adapters (surge of 23A for 2ms each) operating @ 24VDC

The 1794-PS3 Flex I/O Power Supply is capable of supplying 3A maximum1 @24VDC and the output surge current of the 1794-PS3 is sufficient to drive 6 adapters (surge of 23A for 2ms each) operating @ 24VDC

Non-AB DC power supplies can also be utilized but should operate within the specifications required for the devices they are powering.

Size the power supply by calculating the total current consumed by summing the currents for each of the modules used below for the power supply operating voltage applied.
