Function: PS3500-TB-3

The PS3500-TB-3 is a 3-position backplane used by the PS2500/PS3500 series power supply modules. Power configuration and alarms are controlled by DIP switches on the backplane. The backplane connects to universal AC (90- 250 V) or DC (90-300 V) inputs and supports redundancy.

The PS3500-TB-3 allows a maximum of 45 A of output power, 30 A in N+1 configuration or 15 A in triple redundant mode. Automatic load sharing of all of the power modules is built into the backplane. Input and output lines can be wired independently or in parallel, providing easy configuration of N+1 redundancy.

The fault bus can be configured in serial or parallel combinations.
