XP Power today announced the ECE80 series of 80W single output AC-DC encapsulated power supply modules with high efficiency and a low no load input power. The modules are perfect for customers requiring an encapsulated AC-DC power solution in an ultra-compact format for either PCB, chassis, or DIN rail mounting. The ECE80 series has the smallest footprint and highest power density in the industry for an 80W encapsulated power supply module. The range is available in three formats for increased flexibility. The standard part comes as a PCB mount version, adding –S gives you a chassis mount version with screw terminals, and lastly the DIN rail version with screw terminals is available by adding –SD.
The ECE80 range is an extension of XP Power’s ECE series of small encapsulated AC-DC power supplies, offering power levels from 5 to 80 Watts. They accommodate the need for smaller and more efficient power supplies with low no load power consumption. Additionally, the modules are well suited to class II applications and offer Class B EMI without any additional filtering.
Such applications include those in automation and process control, broadcast, instrumentation, mobile comms and home automation.
With their peak load capability up to 130% of nominal rated power output for 30 seconds, ECE80 modules are able to power short term higher power loads, so designers may not need to specify a higher rated and possible physically larger power supply.
With a very high power density of >11.2 W/in3 the compact power modules take up less space in customers’ end products. The ECE80 PCB mount module measures just 91.4 x 45.72 x 28.0 mm and the chassis mount module measures 113.0 x 47.5 x 28.5 mm. Five standard output voltages are available from 12 to 48 VDC. The modules’ <0.3W no load power consumption and efficiency figure of up to 89% helps designers meet current green requirements in their end applications, and their class II construction means that no ground (earth) connection required, again simplifying design. With their wide operating temperature range of -40 to 70 degrees C (with no derating until 50 degrees C), XP Power’s ECE80 modules are able to operate in most environments with no need for additional heat sinking or airflow.
The modules meet Class B conducted and radiated EMC limits without any additional components, and are UL/CSA/EN/IEC 60950-1 safetyagency approved.
XP Power today announced the ACM06 and ACM18 series of medically-approved wall mount / plug top power supplies that meet the latest Department of Energy (DoE) Level VI and Code of Conduct (CoC) Tier 2 standards.With single outputs of 6W and 18W respectively, they feature industry leading efficiency figures and use less energy while operating at no load to help reduce the impact on the environment and reduce energy costs.
The power supplies feature a high average efficiency of up to 87.5% typical measured at 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% load, meeting the new DoE energy efficiency level VI (US) and CoC Tier 2 requirements in the EU. Both series feature a low no load input power, with all ranges consuming less than 0.075W.
Exhibiting versatility, the ACM06 series is available in 5, 9 and 12VDC output models, while the ACM18 comes in 5, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24VDC single output models, the most common output voltages to suit most applications. Both offer a choice of detachable input plugs for either the US, UK, EU, China or Australian use. This gives the designer the option of sourcing one or multiple plugs for their specific locations.
With Medical 60601-1 and ITE 60950-1 safety approvals, and meeting Class B limits for both conducted and radiated emissions, the power supplies have the relevant international safety approvals and meet stringent EMC noise requirements for use in both medical and industrial applications. An operating temperature range from 0 to 60 degrees C, and a full power rating to 40 degrees C allow the power supplies to operate in most environments.
Both series feature an output cable with a standard, 2.5mm inner, 5.5mm outer diameter barrel connector. 5VDC models are also available with an optional USB in-body connector instead of the output cord and plug. As standard, all models have a black plastic case, with white cases available as an option.
Factors driving the demand for this type of product are the latest requirements of the DoE in the US and the CoC in the EU. These standards set limits for average energy efficiency and minimum no load power consumption. The new requirement lowers the minimum no load power to less than 0.075 Watt for the 6-18 Watt output power level.
The power supplies will find favour in a myriad of applications where an external wall mount power supply is preferred to one mounted internally in the end product.
Compared to the competition, XP Power’s ACM06 and ACM18 series feature very high, industry leading efficiencies, they are competitively priced and are available now.
