HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL– Omron Automation and Safety has introduced compact single-phase, Class I Division 2 rated S8VK-G switching power supplies to provide a space-saving alternative for panels used in oil/gas extraction, grain handling and other explosive, hazardous environments.

They provide stable operation over a wide temperature range, from -40C to +70C, for enclosed outdoor use in addition to general industrial control applications. A momentary Power Boost of 120 percent of rated current increases S8VK-G life when it is used in inductive load applications. Built-in overload and overvoltage protection also help ensure stability.

Using gravity ventilation in all sizes, the S8VK-G series was designed with the heat-generating components near the top to ensure less heat buildup in the panel allowing longer life for the power supply and surrounding components. This construction eliminates the S8VK-G as a heat source that could cause ignition of flammable gas mixtures, meeting UL Class I Division requirements. Their robust design and construction withstand vibration from industrial machinery.

The S8VK-G power supplies are available for 15W, 30W, 60W, 120W, 240W and 480W DC output from 100 to 240 VAC input. All models mount to DIN rail track. The S8VK family meets international standards with models available worldwide.
