Acopian has won 2014 ECN IMPACT Award. The company received the award in the category of Power Sources and Conditioning for its 1U 750 watt AC-DC Power Supply family, which targets a broad range of ATE, OEM and laboratory applications.

The ECN Impact Awards were presented at the inaugural ECN-sponsored reception at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, USA.

Winners were selected by a judging panel comprised of 15 category-specific industry experts to recognise the products and services having the most significant impact on the electronics industry during 2013.

These devices accommodate the universal AC input voltage of 95 to 265VAC, 50/60Hz with active power factor correction (PFC) of 0.99 single phase.  

Models can be configured with a fixed auxiliary output of between 3.3Vdc and 125Vdc, up to 180W. An intuitive front panel supports reliable linear controls.  Voltage and current monitor outputs, and provisions for N+1 redundancy and paralleling are also available as options.  All units are provided with pluggable connectors, active PFC, universal input, built-in over voltage protection (OVP), and constant current control.

Additional standard features include ‘soft start’ and ‘no load’ operation, short circuit and overload protection, thermal protection, internal EMI filtering, RFI shielding, and remote sensing. Available digital interfaces include RS232, RS485, Ethernet and USB.
