Baseplate cooled AC/DC power supply suits rugged applications, says XP Power

A series of low profile, baseplate-cooled 160W AC/DC power supplies are intended for use in semiconductor manufacturing and industrial technology applications including test and measurement, factory automation and process control. XP Power added that the ASB160 series is particularly suited for solving cooling, air pollution and integration issues.
The compact AC/DC power supplies include an EMC filter, AC fuse and bulk storage capacitor, making them ready for direct-to-PCB installation into an end application where they can operate with a baseplate temperature in the range -40 to +90°C.

The ASB160 units have a universal input range of 90 to 264V AC for worldwide use. There are six single DC output voltages 12, 15, 24, 36, 48 and 54V DC.

The power supplies are housed in a full brick baseplate cooled module which measures 2.40 x 4.60 x 0.78 inches (61 x 117 x 20mm). Efficiency levels are up to 93 per cent, resulting in some of the highest power density levels currently available in this type of device, said XP Power. The rugged power supplies are suitable for use in sealed enclosures including ATEX-approved equipment as the baseplate cooling removes any need for forced air / fan cooling.

The ASB160 modules have over-current, over- voltage and over-temperature protection mechanisms. According to XP, the effective heat removal via the baseplate ensures elevated levels of reliability and ease of integration.

The ASB160 series is available from Digi-Key, Distrelec, Farnell, Mouser, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or directly from XP Power and is covered by a three-year warranty.
XP Power provides AC/DC power supplies, DC/DC converters, high voltage power supplies and RF power supplies. XP Power is certified to ISO9001:2015, and offers in-house design through to manufacturing facilities around the world. The company offers a wide range of power products available from one source, with technical and customer support.
XP Power has 24 sales offices throughout Europe, North America, and Asia.
