To DIN Rail Power Supplies

Email of the month (FEB 2017): Hi Peter, ...Also, thank you for your catalogue and CD. Much appreciated. Ill definitely get back to again. Carsten, QLD

A range of plates, brackets and clips are available from Meanwell to mount the metal caged supplies - click here
For Harsh Environment power supplies (12V to 54V) see the HLG range or the HEP-600 below.

NOTE: The standard power supplies between 150W and 2000W cost around 45c per Watt. 2400W and 10,000W units... less than 37c per Watt. Ex-GST. Use this as a 'rough' guide for a 'basic' power supply when quoting!

RS series (above left)
The RS Series (also called the G3 series) provides 15, 25, 35, 50, 75, 100 or 150 Watt output in voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 24V or 48V. This series replaces the G1, G2 and NES series and provides higher reliablity and longer life with higher temperature operation! Suitable for general use in OEM equipment in the office or home or for use in telecommunications, electronics or industrial applications. NEW! Low profile (30mm) LRS series provides higher wattage replacements for RS series! With 36V output (adjustable from 32V to 40V) available! Lower price and higher reliability than RS series... LRS-150 also with Over Temperature Protection (OTP). For a video of the LRS series - click here.

The RELIABLE 'S' or RS series (G3) provides drop-in replacements for the S series (G1) with higher wattage output !!! Replace S25 with RS50... S40 with RS75... S60 with RS100... S100 or S100F with RS150. The S150 can also be replaced by the RS150 or HRP-200 with smaller size, better reliability and other improved features. The RS series provides direct replacements for the IDEC PS3X series. Also provides replacements for the PowerBox PBC series with higher wattage output.

SP series (above right)
The SP Series provides 75, 100, 150, 200, 240, 320, 480, 500* or 750 Watt output in voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 7.5V, 12V, 13.5V, 15V, 24V, 27V or 48V. The series is designed for higher wattage output than the RS series, with active Power Factor Correction (PFC) and (most) with constant current limiting. The most popular units are the SP-240 (replaces the S-240) and the SP-320 (replaces the S-320). The SP-200 is also a 'lower wattage' drop-in replacement for the Sunpower SPS-220P (with 5mm increase in height), SPS-230P and SPS-240P. Note, if you require a fixed voltage betweeen 3V and 54V, checkout the RSP-200, SP-320 and RSP-320 which are the only standard models with 36V output! For other 36V units see the High Reliability HRP and HRPG series and the RST Series.

*note, the SP-500 is being phased out! We recommend the RSP-500 or PSP-600 (drop in equivalent). All SP power supplies will gradually be phased out... we suggest, for new designs, use the RSP series or the HRP(G) series.

RSP series (not shown) - 750W and above now with 5 year warranty!
The RSP Series provides 75, 100, 150, 200, 240, 320, 480, 500, 750, 1000, 1500*, 1600, 2000, 2400 or 3000 Watt output in voltages of 2.5V, 3.3V, 5V, 7.5V, 12V, 13.5V, 15V, 24V, 27V, 36V or 48V. The series is designed for high wattage output in compact sizes, with active Power Factor Correction (PFC), (most) with constant current limiting and remote ON/OFF control (except RSP200 and RSP320). The smaller wattages provide low profile units (less than 30mm) with all units fitting a 1U rack except the RSP1500, RSP2400 and RSP3000. All wattages above 500W provide remote voltage sensing and 750W and above remote voltage control (using 0-5V) with the RSP750 and RSP1600 also providing remote current control. Wattages above 1000W can also be connected in parallel to increase the output up to 9000 Watts for the RSP3000. *RSP-1500 will be phased out and replaced by the RSP-1600. The 5000W and 10000W RST series now available in 24V, 36V & 48V - with parallel operation up to 20,000W. Ideal for charging large battery banks!

HRP/G series (not shown) - High Reliability - 5 year warranty!
The HRP/G Series provides 75, 100, 150, 200, 300, 450 or 600 Watt output in voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 7.5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V or 48V. A simple adjustment by potentiometer allows voltages of 13.8V, 27.6V and 55.2V, as well as 9V, 32V (any voltage between 10.2V and 55.2V). The series is designed for high reliability, with active Power Factor Correction (PFC), with constant current limiting and low and high temperature operation. The HRP-75, HRP-100 and HRPG (Green) models have remote ON/OFF control with low power consumption (when OFF) and high efficiency to save energy! In addition, all HRPG models have an auxillary 5V at 0.3A output to drive external circuitry (this voltage output remains ON even when the remote is OFF). All models from 150W to 600W provide remote voltage sensing to compensate for cable losses. For medical approved units, see the MSP Series - click here.

A range of plates, brackets and clips are available from Meanwell to mount the metal caged supplies - click here.
Note 5V^, 7.5V^ indicates it can be set to 6 Volts. Some 7.5V^ can also be set to 9 Volts.

All MeanWell power supplies we sell have international approvals (UL, CB, CE, TUV, EMC) and Australian C-tick approval and have built-in short-circuit, overload and OVP (Over Voltage Protection). All fan cooled models have OTP (Over Temperature Protection) plus many others (see data sheets). Some small models (e.g. RS-15) with integrated devices also have OTP. To determine the output current divide the wattage by the voltage. e.g. 240 Watts at 24V provides 10A. Note the maximum current is derated at temperature extremes (see data sheets). Some models have BSMI / CCC / CAS / CUL / ErP / EISA / FCC / GL marine / IP65 / IP67 / LPS / MEPS / SEMI F47/ SELV approvals or compliance. All test reports, certificates and declarations are available as PDF documents... please request a copy by email.

EX-GST purchases may only be made when the delivery address is outside of Australia. i.e. for EXPORT orders. Prices subject to change without notice.


SM = Switch-mode operation (compact and light weight). All SPSU (Switching Power Supply Units) have regulated outputs (adjustable by +/-10% up to 20%) and generally operate on 90-264VAC, 47-63 Hz. Or can also operate on 120-370VDC. The CGL, HRP, SDR, SP and USP (anything with 'P' on the end) versions have active PFC (Power Factor Correction) and constant current limiting (rather than hiccup mode). The SDR-480P, HRPG-600, SPV-1500, PSP and RSP/RCP versions also allow parallel operation. DC-DC versions (SD series) operate on 12V (up to 50W only), 24V, 48V or 110V DC up to 1000W. Note, use standard AC-DC SMPS for 120VDC to 370VDC input (from 10W to 1500W++). Some supplies now allow 430VDC up to 780VDC !!!

PSP range all have been phased out except PSP-600. For the PSP-500 we recommend using PSP-600 or HRPG-600 (24V to 48V only for parallel operation). For PSP-1000 use RSP-1000. For PSP-1500 use RSP-1500 or RSP-1600. The RSP range above 750W now provides a 5 year warranty compared to 3 years for the PSP range and 2 years for the old SCN range.

Please contact us for all your special power supply needs. Mean Well also have supplies in miniature high temperature versions (RS, RD, RID, RT, RQ series), open frame (PLP, ULP, PS series), multi-rail (D, T, Q, QP series) and in IP64/IP67 environments, see the LED range for LED lighting and moving sign applications outdoors or wet area indoors. For enclosed power supplies (12V to 48V) see the HEP-600 or the HLG Range which allows non-electricians to open control cubicles safely as, with a 240VAC plug and socket fitted, no exposed 240VAC terminals are used.

19 inch rack mount system for the RCP-1000, RCP-1600, RCB-1600 and RCP-2000. Now available is the RCB-1600 series with 13.8V, 27.6V and 55.2V outputs for battery charging in telecommunications and other large battery charging systems. The RCP-1600 and RBP-1600 provides 8000W per rack with up to 3 racks in parallel for 24000W in total! All units have hot-swap operation, internal ORing diode, AC OK and DC OK LED/signals plus over-temperature signal and I2C or PMbus serial data interface option! The I2C or PMBUS (Power Management Bus) option provides ID information (serial number, model, date of production), provides the analogue value of voltage, current and internal temperature and reports faulty AC input, DC output, temperature and fans! See the Monitor Unit - RCP-MU The I2C/PMBUS information allows you to monitor each power supply by microcontroller or computer to determine if a fault has occurred (or may be about to occur) and to monitor the 'Total Run Time' of the PSU to determine when it should be replaced.

The Reliable 'S' or RS series provides drop-in replacements for the NES series and S series with higher wattage output !!! Replace NES-15 with RS-25... NES-25 with RS-35 or LRS-35 or LRS-50... NES-35, S-25 with RS-50 or LRS-75... NES-50, S-40 with RS-75 or HRP-75* or LRS-100... NES-75, NES-100, S-60 with RS-100 or HRP-100* or LRS-150 or HRP-150*... NES-150, S-100F with RS-150 or HRP-200* (side screw holes different). S-150-13.5, S-150-27 with AD-155(output terminals different). S-150-12, S-150-24, S-150-48 with ADS-155(output terminals different). *note, on the HRP or HRPG units the terminals overhang by 15mm.

Tests conducted on the some RS series models shows that they can provide CONSTANT POWER OVERLOAD capability (down to 50% voltage) and do not always go into HICCUP MODE. Constant power is better for driving motors, capacitive loads (e.g. DC-DC converters or DC-AC inverters) and other loads where the inital start-up current is high!

1. @With short-circuit and overload protection, some supplies shut-down and must have the power cycled off and on again to recover, some have a hicup mode and recover automatically and others have constant current or constant power limiting. Note, when driving motors, incandescent lights and highly capacitive loads the supply must allow for the peak current or a constant current limited output is recommended (e.g. DR, EDR*, HEP, HLG*, HRP, HRPG, MDR, MSP, NDR*, PSP, RCP, RSP*, SDR, SP*, SPV, WDR* version). *some units only. Please check what mode of operation you require before purchase!
2. Most MW power supplies have exposed supply input terminals (except laptop and desktop style) therefore they must be used inside a control cubicle or suitable enclosure for OEM (Own Equipment Manufacturer) use. For desktop power supplies from Manson and Meanwell - click here. Note, only the LED and the HEP ranges of power supplies provide outdoor IP65/IP67/IP68 operation. Click here to view the enclosed power supplies for Harsh Environments!
3. All MW power supplies operate from -10C (new units from -55C) to 60C (most RS, MDR, SDR and WDR range from -20C to 70C, CLG/HLG/HRP/HRPG from -40C to 70C and HEP from -55C to 70C). The current output must be derated at temperature extremes and with low input voltage.
4. All MW power supplies have floating outputs (except the SP-480) and can be used as positive or negative earthed supplies and can be connected in series for increased voltage. Note, diode protection against reverse voltage may be necessary and, remember, any voltage above 60VDC is hazardous - the requirement of SELV (Safety Extra Low Voltage) of IEC60950-1. Please ask for information for this and other applications (e.g. using them in parallel or as a battery charger).
5. Small power supplies (up to 320W) may be DIN rail mounted with additional hardware. L brackets are also available - click here.
6. Some MW power supplies have auxilary voltage outputs (5V, 12V or 13.8V - e.g. for battery charging), parallel operation (extending the current output), active Power Factor Correction (PFC), extended temperature operation, remote on/off, remote 20%-120% voltage control using 1-5V, remote voltage sensing (to compensate for external wiring) and power fail signal outputs - please ask if you require these features.
7. The HRPG-300/MSP-300 are possible replacements for the Cosel PBA-300 and the HRPG-600/MSP-600 for the Cosel PBA-600.


Meanwell Time Between Failure
The 'Mean Time Between Failure' or MTBF is calculated according to the probability of accidental device failures, and indicates reliability of devices. Therefore, it does not necessarily represent the service life of the product. The life expectancy or life cycle of a power supply is most dependent on the electrolytic capacitors used. The deterioration speed of the electrolytic capacitor varies considerably according to the ambient temperature. Generally the speed follows Rule of Two for every 10C; for every 10C increase in temperature the rate of degradation doubles according to Arrheniuss equation. The reason Meanwell have such good MTBF specs on in-line or laptop style power supplies is that they use 105C electrolytic capacitors whereas others use ordinary 85C caps (open that 'cheap' unit and take a look). Finally, 2014 figures on the '2 year field return rate' suggest that around 1 in 3200 units is ever returned due to faulty parts or workmanship (that's x3 less returns than 2006). Procon Technology can honestly say, due to Meanwell's extensive burn-in testing, that we have NEVER had a D.O.A (Dead on arrival) nor premature failure of any Meanwell power supply (I wish all the products we sold were like this). The only unit we have had returned within 12 months of installation had a "zapped" nest of ants in it! p.s. We recommend that all power supplies be checked on a regular basis and steps taken to ensure vermin (ants, rats, birds) do not cause mischief! In outside applications, where this could be a problem, we recommend the use of a IP65 or IP67 rated units. e.g.
HLG or HEP range.

NOTE: An additional method of calculating the MTBF, the Telcordia/Bellcore SR-332, is now given on RBP, RCB, RCP, RSP (750W an above) and RST datasheets! This is considered a more accurate method of determining the MTBF then MIL-HDBK-217 for commercial products.

What does Mean Well mean to you?
'Mean Well' may be a name that is unfamilar to you. Perhaps you have purchased the one of the brandnames below? These are often large companies that supply a wide range of electronic equipment, whereas Mean Well specialize in power supplies... or power related products only! Many of these brandnames may, in fact, have their power supplies manufactured by Mean Well. Some of them simply rebadge the MeanWell product and sell it for significantly more! As for the name itself 'Mean Well' or 'MW' should stand for 'Manufactured Well' but the name, which was translated from Chinese, means more than it's dictionary definition - 'to have good intentions'. It may, or may not, surprise you that Mean Well Enterprises has adopted Confucius Analects as part of its corporate culture, 'Honesty and Sincerely', 'Active and Responsible' and 'Harmony and Unity'. The message from the President (Mr Jerry Lin) illustrates the importance the company places on the operation of a humble power supply - "If the CPU is the brain of a system, the power supply is it's heart, and often the value of losses incurred in a single failure can exceed the value of the power supply itself." Note, Meanwell has been awarded the 'Taiwan Superior Brands' title for 2010... click here and many items have been awarded the "Taiwan Excellence Product Award" - www.taiwanexcellence.com.tw

Why you should buy MeanWell for use in Australia?
A quote from an Electrical Contracting Magazine... 'Very high temperatures this summer have made it particularly hard for many inverters that were not designed or rated to withstand Australian conditions. This has been one of the factors contributing to recent increases in inverter failures.'

Why are some Meanwell power supplies not stocked in Australia?
Any Meanwell power supply can be supplied ex-factory (often within 7 days by express shipment), however a number of Meanwell's range are NOT APPROVED FOR USE IN AUSTRALIA because they do not have the necessary certification. Non-approved models includes the SE Series and the new LRS series above 150 Watts! It is important to note that ALL of the power supplies above 150 Watts that we stock have Active Power Factor Correction (PFC), which is a requirement for C-Tick approval in Australia! Power Factor Correction is provided on all models with 'P' in the part number such as the SP, RSP, HRP and HEP ranges. Also all CLG, HLG, PLN, SDR models (NDR & WDR above 120W) and all AC power adapters above 60 Watts. Finally, supply of the obsolete S series is now only available with minimum orders of 200 units and the NES series has been discontinued in Australia, as this series does not have world-wide approvals and demand is low. We recommend the RS series or LRS series instead.

Disclaimer: The above specifications are subject to change without notice. Please ensure the suitability of these products for your application before purchase. In applications where mains surges may occur (e.g. due to lighting strike) additional protective devices should be fitted... such as the Meanwell SPD-20-240P. Further note that the power supplies with open terminals are intended to be installed inside a "suitable" protective encloser with adequate ventilation provided. They must be installed by a qualified professional. Please contact us should you have any doubt. Some FAKE Meanwell power supplies* have also been sold by overseas suppliers - BEWARE! Always purchase from an authorised Australian Supplier! That way you'll be able to make a warranty claim if necessary and you'll also be assured that the power supply meets Australian Standards or has the necessary Electrical Safety Approvals AND works properly without interference! Further, BEWARE of suppliers or equipment imported from overseas that supply the SE series (Also the NES-200 and NES-350), these are only approved for use in the USA and Canada (and some other countries) where they operate on 110VAC. They are not approved for use in Australia or Europe where the mains voltage is 220-240VAC.
