160 Watt Power Supply Offers 92% Efficiency with Just 102 x 50mm Footprint
October 2008 - Powerstax plc, market leaders in application rich high efficiency power solutions, announce the availability of the new A-01601 family of 160 watt, industry leading ultra-high power density single output power supplies. The low profile 1U x 102 x 50mm (4" x 2") footprint switchers provide 12.5W/inch³ with convection cooling and 20W/ inch³ fan cooled. Output options include 5V, 12V, 24V and 48V with 3.3V and 15V to be available in the near future. All models have a 12V auxiliary output for fan/standby purposes.
With up to 92% efficiency attainable, these power-factor corrected switching power supplies are suitable for ITE and some medical applications. Tim Worley, CEO of Powerstax plc, comments, "We are now very focused on providing the most efficient power conversion products available for our customers while maintaining our key strength of providing application specific solutions on short lead-times. Our UK based design team provides direct engineer to engineer communication with our customers ensuring accurate and timely product solutions."
The new Powerstax A-01601 series has a universal AC input and will run from 170-370 VDC and provides a 16mS Holdup Time. Auto recovery over voltage, over current, short circuit and over temperature protection is standard and operating temperature range is -20 to + 70 ºC with de-rating. For more than 100 watt output 200 LFM cooling is required. MTBF is >100000 Hours convection cooled and >300,000 hours with cooling. The A-01601 family has VDE, UL, c-UL for EN60950, IEC60950, UL/c-UL 60950 EN60601-1, IEC60601 and UL/c-UL 60601-1 safety standards and meets EMC standards including, conducted EMI EN55022 Class B, EN60601-1-2, EN55022 Class B, Voltage Fluctuation EN61000-3-3, ESD EN61000-4-2 8KV air-discharge, 6KV contact A and Radiated Field EN61000-4-3 3V/m, 80-2500MHz, 1kHz/2Hz 80% AM modulation.
Typical applications include telecoms, datacoms, industrial control, test and measurement and security systems. For more information visit www.powerstaxplc.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 (0)1252 407800
