Title (EN) POWER SUPPLY CONTROLLER
(FR) UNITE DE COMMANDE DE FOURNITURE D'ENERGIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A power supply controller controls power supplies for power-up and/or shut-down in a desired sequence. An input voltage for the power supplies powers, and is monitored by, a first control unit having outputs for enabling the power supplies. A second control unit monitors output voltages of the power supplies, and an isolating signal coupler couples signals in both directions between the first and second control units. The second control unit is powered in an isolated manner from the input voltage, conveniently via a transformer constituting the signal coupler. The control units together respond to the monitored voltages for enabling the power supplies in accordance with the desired sequence, information for which can be stored in a non-volatile store. The second control unit can also include enable outputs isolated from the input voltage, and trim outputs for adjusting the monitored voltages.
(FR)pUne unité de commande de fourniture d'énergie commande, pour la fourniture d'énergie, la mise sous tension et la coupure selon la séquence souhaitée. Une tension d'entrée alimente une première unité de commande, qui surveille ladite tension, et dont les sorties activent la fourniture d'énergie. Une seconde unité de commande surveille les tensions de sortie des fournitures d'énergies, et un coupleur d'isolement de signal couple les signaux dans les deux sens entre la première et la seconde unité de commande. La seconde unité de commande est alimentée de manière isolée et rationnellement à partir de la tension d'entrée via un transformateur faisant office de coupleur de signaux. Ensembles, les unités de commande réagissent aux tensions surveillées et activent les fournitures d'énergies selon la séquence souhaitée, les informations correspondantes pouvant être stockées dans une mémoire mon volatile. La seconde unité de commande comprend en outre des sorties d'activation isolées de la tension d'entrée et des sorties d'écrêtage pour le réglage des tensions surveillées.
