Size Load to Connect to S82J / S82K Model

Question

What size load (as a percentage of Power Supplies' rated output capacity) can be connected to S82J or S82K Series Switch Mode Power Supply?

Answer

Generally speaking, it is possible to connect a load up to 100% of the rated output capacity (see note), but there are drawbacks. When Power Supplies are operated near their rated output capacity, inrush currents and load variations may trigger the overcurrent protection function, causing the output to stop and reducing the lifetime of Power Supplies. We recommend normal operation at about 70% to 80% of the rated capacity.

Note:There are cases when it is not possible to connect a load up to 100% of the rated capacity (for example, when the Power Supply is being used in parallel operation).
