Power Supply Solutions

Power is needed in many different areas in the food & beverage industry. Areas like cooling processes (refrigerator and deep freezer systems), transportation, filling and high-energy machines can generate high costs. According to current studies, energy costs are the third highest operating costs for production companies.


  • Reduction of energy consumption
  • Redundant power supply
  • Compensation of brief grid voltage dips
  • Smart distribution
  • Smart shutdown of machine parts
  • Operation without interruptions

New and, most importantly, simple approaches to reduce energy consumption are welcome as they help maintain a competitive edge in a market characterized by the pressure to reduce costs. Products from Murrelektronik can help you do this!

  • Highly efficient power supply units offer an efficiency of up to 95%
  • LED technology in signal lights instead of incandescent light bulbs decreases energy consumption by up to 70%
  • MICO+ output channels can be switched off selectively via control input when, for example, parts of the system are not being used. With this functionality, only required consumers are supplied with energy. That saves energy, reduces losses, increases service life and therefore the overall productivity. When the switched-off part of the system is required again, it can be quickly reactivated using MICO+
  • Modules such as MVK Metall ProfiEnergy switch off LEDs and actuator outputs when they are not required, for example during breaks. This way the system does not waste energy, without needing to restart it
  • Valve plugs and passive distributors with power reduction during dwell time - for up to 60% or even 80% less energy consumption

Murrelektronik offers redundant power supply solutions in order to preventively reduce the risk of power supply failure significantly. In addition, matched buffer systems compensate brief grid voltage dips and enable a safe shutdown procedure in case of failure.

Murrelektronik products are tailored to the specific needs of all domains. These include tested, economical and long-lasting solutions for 24VDC and 48VDC power supply, buffering and distribution – simply put: comprehensive power management.
