PCB Mount AC-DC Power Supplies meet medical safety standards.

Press Release Summary:

Available in encapsulated or open frame format measuring 1.4 x 0.94 x 0.69 in., EME05 Series includes 8 single-output models covering all nominal outputs from 3.3–48 Vdc. Convection-cooled 5 W units offer full power across input range of 90–264 Vac without derating. Providing reinforced insulation with 4,000 Vac I/O isolation and 2 means of patient protection, power supplies are approved to 3rd edition of international medical safety standards EN60601-1:2006 and ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005.

Original Press Release:

Miniature PCB Mount 5 W AC-DC Power Supply Meets International Medical Safety Standards

XP Power today announced the EME05 series of ultra-compact, single output, 5 Watt AC-DC power supplies. Believed to be one of the smallest 5 Watt supplies on the market and available in either an encapsulated or open frame mechanical format, the EME05 measures just 1.4 x 0.94 x 0.69 inches, taking up minimal space in the end application.

The EME05 is approved to the 3rd edition of the international medical safety standards EN60601-1:2006 and ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005. The device provides a reinforced (double) insulation with 4000 VAC input / output isolation and two means of patient protection (2 x MOPP).

The convection-cooled series provides eight single output models covering all the popular nominal outputs from 3.3 to 48 VDC. A peak load capability allows up to 130% of the rated output power to be available for up to 30 seconds. This is ideal for accommodating application start-up where a higher load is required for a relatively short period. This approach allows a designer to save valuable board space and cost rather than having to specify a higher rated and potentially larger power supply in order to meet peak loads.

The EME05 has universal input and offers full power across the complete input range of 90-264 VAC without any derating. All models offer Class II construction so no earth/ground connection is required. The units meet the EN55011 Class B EMI standard for conducted and radiated emissions. No additional filtering components are required, saving PCB space and BOM costs.

Capable of delivering full power up to +50 degrees C and operate across a wide temperature range from -25 to + 70 degrees C, the EME05 can be used in most environments without the need for any additional heat sinking or forced airflow.

The EME05 series is priced at $14.06 for 500 pcs orders and is available from Newark, Digi-Key, or direct from XP Power and come with a 3 year warranty.
