Alicat flow and pressure instruments may be powered in a number of ways. Universal power supplies are available for our non-wired instruments with barrel-type power jacks and for our battery-powered portable instruments equipped with micro-USB connections. The high-current power supply can be connected to a BB3 or BB9 breakout box to power up to 9 high-flow controllers at a time.
Most instruments can also receive power through their electrical connectors.
Universal Power Supplies
PVPS24U for barrel-type power jacks
The PVPS24U is a variable power supply that accepts 100-240 Vac at 50-60 Hz and delivers 24 Vdc at 1.0 amp. It plugs into a barrel-type power jack and includes four interchangeable prong configurations for easy access to power outlets around the world.
The PVPS24U is also compatible with our BB3 and BB9 multi-drop breakout boxes. With a maximum output of 1.0 amp (1000 mA), a single PVPS24U can power as many as 25 meters or 6 non-Rolamite controllers when connected together.
PVPS5USBU for micro-USB power jacks
The PVPS5USBU is a variable power supply that accepts 100-240 Vac at 50-60 Hz and delivers 5 Vdc at 2.0 amps. It plugs into a micro-USB power jack and includes four interchangeable prong configurations for easy access to power outlets around the world.
PS24VHC High-Current Power Supply
The PS24VHC is an excellent power supply solution for instrument installations that require higher total current output than what the PVPS24U provides. It is well-suited for permanent installations of our instruments, or for powering large controllers connected to a BB3 or BB9 multi-drop breakout box. The PS24VHC accepts 100-120 Vac and 200-240 Vac at 50-60 Hz and delivers 24 Vdc at 6.5 amps.
