The BPS3 Automated Power Supply is designed to rapidly and cleanly cycle and release, making it an excellent power source for high-speed automated processes. The release cycle is completely automatic, eliminating the need for operator judgement even with manual switches. An adjustable timed pulse of reverse current to the magnet effectively releases the load. An SPST switch, limit switch, or PLC output may be used to operate the power supply. The BPS3 is ideal for robotics or “pick and place” applications. [new paragraph] All electromagnets require a power supply in order to operate correctly. Electromagnets must be able to release ferrous objects as readily as they attract and hold them. The ability to release comes from the power supply rendering a reverse current that ensures positive release of even those alloy steels that retain induced magnetism extremely well. All Bunting® Power Supplies are designed to provide D.C. power for industrial electromagnets. [new paragraph] Note: Total wattage of all magnets powered by a single Bunting Power Supply must not exceed the wattage rating of the Power Supply. For example; you can use five 3-watt magnets with a 15-watt Power Supply.
