March 2006 - Powerstax plc, a UK based leader in application rich power solutions, announces introduction of the new A3600 series of ultra low profile, 1U high 19" rack mount, configurable AC-DC power supply. Capable of providing up to 3,600W output power the A3600 offers users multi-output "custom" power solutions without extended lead times and high NRE costs.
The A3600 employs a modular construction that has been developed to deliver advanced market-leading versatility using ultra-high efficiency (>90%) standard products from the Powerstax range. In a very compact, ultra low profile 1U high 19" rack mount package 351mm deep, the A3600 offers combinations of single or multi-output, regulated DC power from a universal input mains supply of 85-264Vac. Input and output connection may be specified at front or rear and may be cable entry, connector or safety stud as required.
With up to 18 isolated and adjustable outputs, it is possible to individually margin, enable, parallel or stack the outputs to provide literally millions of power variants. Features include zero load operation and fully floating outputs that have standard output voltage ranges from 1.5V to 58V, few electrolytic capacitors (all long life), local and remote adjustment, and user adjustable current limit and inhibit/enable functions.
Tim Worley, CEO of Powerstax comments. "Recent market trends have been to produce single output redundant power supplies for telecomms applications. Our new A3600 series provides a simple to configure, readily available multi-output power system for more the complex power requirements required by industrial and medical system manufacturers."
This innovative Powerstax design allows rapid delivery of customer configured units, fully approved and CE marked, in a matter of weeks. This enhanced flexibility together with lower design costs and improved lead times enables power supply designers to meet special and unique power architecture requirements. Typical applications include communications, battery replacement, radio transmitter systems, medical, instrumentation, industrial, test & measurement markets and all rack mounted non-standard and custom requirements.
Dependent upon specification, prices start from USD 995 each for quantities of 100 pcs, with lead times from as little as 2 weeks. Details on the A3600 are also available in the new Powerstax AC-DC shortform catalogue obtainable FREE from the Powerstax web site at www.powerstaxplc.com
