Brightworks Technology introduces medical Cortina supply
The second power supply family in Brightworks Technology’s Cortina series has been announced.
The external models meet US Department of Energy’s Level VI and the EU’s Code of Conduct Type 2 energy efficiency standards and the 4th edition Medical EMC standard.
“Today’s industrial, test instrumentation, audio/video, and medical applications require higher efficiency, and smaller size as well as adherence to more strict safety requirements for the emerging medical home health market,” explains Robert L. Carl, president of Brightworks Technology. The new Cortina family of isolated AC/DC converters will feature 94 per cent efficiency while meeting the Department of Energy’s and EU standards as well as 2 MOPP (means of patient protection) and EMC 4th edition for medical applications.
The compact external adapters will be available initially in four voltages delivering 90W of output power with a universal input of 100 to 240 V AC and a precise regulated single output voltage selection of 12, 19.5, 24 or 48V AC.
The design will also meet IP42 requirements for moisture protection and features self-protection modes of under-voltage protection, over-voltage protection, over-current protection, over-temperature protection and short circuit protection.
Brightworks adds that the low power controllers, thermal management, quality electrolytic capacitors, patented magnetics, and layout will contribute to the model’s long life and high-reliability design. The power supplies will be in full compliance with IEC/EN62368 and IEC/EN60601 safety requirements.
Headquartered in California, Brightworks Technology is a wholly owned subsidiary of Group Intellect Power Technology. The global company designs, tests and manufactures power conversion products including AC/DC power supplies, as well as external power adapters from one to 3,000W.
