Press Release Summary:
Measuring in 3 x 5 x 1.4 in., VFT Series can provide full 150 W output when force-cooled with 15 cfm airflow. Using convection cooling alone, units provide up to 100 W output. Open frame power supplies operate from universal input of 90-264 Vac with active PFC, and provide nominal outputs of +5, +12, +15, +24, or +48 Vdc. To comply with green power limits, devices have no load power consumption of less than 0.5 W and average efficiency rating of 83-90%, depending on model.

XP Power Introduces Open-frame 150 W AC-DC Power Supplies Aimed at Volume Applications
XP Power announced today the VFT series of low cost 150 W single output AC-DC power supplies aimed at high volume cost-sensitive applications. Packaged within the industry standard 3" x 5" format and measuring just 1.4" high (76.2 x 127.0 x 33.2 mm), the VFT150 series can provide a full 150 W output when force-cooled with only 15 CFM airflow. Alternatively using convection cooling alone, the units can provide up to 100 W output.
The VFT150 operates from a universal input of 90-264 VAC and has active power factor correction. Providing the nominal outputs of +5, +12, +15, + 24 or +48 VDC, these units comply with XP Power's 'green power' limits by having a no load power consumption of less that 0.5 W and average efficiency ranging from 83 - 90%, depending on the model. This helps designers ensure their end-products achieve internationally recognized environmental standards. A +12 VDC, or +5 VDC for 5 VDC output models, auxiliary fan output is provided should forced-air cooling be required.
Despite being designed to meet the price-point expectations of high volume applications, the VTF series incorporates all the control and signalling features normally associated with fully featured models. This includes overvoltage, overload and short-circuit protection, tight load and line regulation together with a remote sense capability. The 12V model is also available with optional blocking diode by adding a -D suffix to the part number.
Accommodating the full universal input range of 90 - 264 VAC, the series is able to deliver full power from - 10 degrees C to + 50 degrees C, and with derating up to + 70 degrees C.
The VFT series meets UL60950-1 / EN60950-1 safety specifications for IT, commercial and industrial equipment. In addition, the units comply with EN550022 level B standard for both conducted and radiated emissions without the need for additional filtering components.
The VFT150 series is priced at $45.00 in 1,000 pc quantities and is available from Newark or direct from XP Power.
