SAN DIEGO, June 28, 2006 - Lambda has announced that after extensive testing, its compact NV-175 and NV-350 families of configurable power supplies now comply with the U.S. military's stringent MIL-STD-810E standards for shock, transit drop, bench handling, basic transportation and shipboard vibration.
The tests, which included subjecting regular production units to 40G for shocks, are designed to simulate the exposure of units to the demanding conditions of a military environment. Other tests included a 1.2-meter drop test on 26 faces, corners and edges of the power supply and a vibration sweep test of 10 cycles between 10 and 500Hz. Following the tests, each unit was visually, mechanically and functionally inspected and found to be in full working order.
The NV-175 supplies are available with a choice of one to four outputs and come in the industry-standard 3- x 5-inch footprint. Cover and internal fan options can also be supplied. The NV-350 units can be delivered with up to six outputs and are suitable for mounting in a 1U chassis.
Lambda's NV models are CE marked in accordance with the LVD (Low Voltage Directive) and carry a host of environmental and safety agency approvals, including RoHS compliance, EN55022 Class B, UL60950-1, CSA22.2 No.60950-1, EN60950-1, IEC60950-1, EN61010-1 and EN60601-1.
NV series power supplies are available now, with prices starting at $89 each for a single-output 180-watt configuration in 100-unit quantities. More information can be found on Lambda's Web site, www.lambdapower.com.
