Compact low profile "green" 225 W power supply targets IT, industrial and medical applications



XP Power announced availability of the ECP225 series of highly efficient low-profile AC-DC power supplies. Delivering up to 150 W by convection cooling alone, the units deliver a maximum of 225 W when a forced air flow of only 10 CFM is applied. With a typical efficiency of 94% and a no-load power consumption of less than 0.5 Watt, the series helps engineers ensure their end product comply with the latest energy efficiency standards. With a very low profile of just 25.4mm (1.0 inch) and a footprint measuring just 63.5 x 127 mm (2.5 x 5.0 inches), these ultra compact power supplies occupy significantly less volume than similar rated power units on the market. 5 single-output models are available within the series, providing all the popular nominal output voltages from + 12 to + 48 VDC. A trim function permits a ± 5% adjustment from stated output in order to compensate for load losses or special application requirements. In addition a + 12 VDC/0.5 A fan output is provided across the range. Meeting the IT equipment safety specifications of UL/IEC/EN 60950-1 and the latest stringent 3rd edition medical safety standards ANSI/AAMI IS 60601-1 and IEC/EN60601-1, the ECP225 series is suitable for use in a wide range of information technology, industrial and medical equipment. The units also comply with the internationally recognised EMC standards EN55011 and EN55022 Class B specifications for conducted noise and Class A limits for radiated emissions. The ECP225 accommodates most operating temperature environments from -20 to + 70 degrees C, with no derating until +50 degrees C. The ECP225 series is available direct from XP Power or from Farnell, element14, approved regional distributors, with a 3 year warranty. XP Power
