Powerstax has launched its 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-in x 2-in) 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 per cent 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 70ºC 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 per cent AM modulation.

Typical applications include telecoms, datacoms, industrial control, test and measurement and security systems.
