DIN rail power supply units: How the service lifetime is determined by the temperature

As a system engineer, it is important to have a reliable and long-lasting power supply on which you can rely. Failure of the unit after a short time is annoying, costly and time consuming. Heat is the archenemy to long service life and reliability: The minimum lifetime of power supplies is determined by the lifetime of the electrolytic capacitors. The warmer it is, the faster the electrolytic capacitors dry out. Even a temperature rise of +10°C in the power supply cuts in half their service lifetime. In order to achieve the longest possible service lifetime for DIN rail power supplies, it is essential that the device is protected against overheating. The cooling concept…
