Relec Electronics to provide Artesyn Embedded Power products
Relec Electronics has extended its range of AC/DC and DC/DC products, following the signing of a distribution agreement with Artesyn Embedded Power.
Artesyn’s AC/DC product portfolio covers a power range of 3W to 24kW in various form factors, including open frame and enclosed models, conduction cooled, modular configurable and rack mount front ends. Many power supplies are available, as standard, as medically approved products.
Now available from Relec is the iHP series of configurable intelligent power system for medical and industrial applications (pictured). The range includes single or three phase inputs and provide modular 3kW blocks with up to eight modules in a single chassis. Modules can be used as voltage or current sources and can be analogue or digitally programmed. As well as medical products, they can be used in semiconductor fabrication and horticultural lighting.
Also available is the AI series of conduction cooled, PCB-mount power factor correction modules. Models in the series accept 100 to 122V AC or 85 to 264V AC inputs and can accommodate AC supply frequencies up to 800Hz, making them suitable for avionic applications. The encapsulated design utilises a baseplate cooling system, allowing operation to temperatures up to 100 degrees C with start up from temperatures as low as -40 degrees.
There is also the LCC series of fully-enclosed conduction cooled power supplies. These deliver useable power at temperatures up to +85 degrees C. Options include IP64 or IP65 protection against the ingress of dust and water. They are intended for use in outdoor signage and telecomms installations (antenna and basestation equipment) or where fan cooling is detrimental to the long term reliability of the final product.
The LCM series of 2U high front-end AC/DC power supplies are available as 300 or 600W options. Typical efficiency is 89 to 91 per cent (full load). The power supplies can be controlled via I2C digital or analogue control and have a wide adjustment range of ±20 per cent. The versatile power supplies are suitable for industrial, medical, military and process automation applications and are particularly well-suited to systems built around a distributed power architecture or point of load (PoL) scheme, advises Relec. For high current applications, up to 10 units can be connected in parallel using the integral OR-ing FET to aid reliability.
Other products from Artesyn include 48V input, telecomms-grade, isolated DC/DC converters in industry-standard sixteenth-brick to full-brick form factors. There is also a family of DC/DC converters to support AC input voltage applications with factorised power (PFC + DC/DC) full and half bricks.
Artesyn Embedded Power designs and manufactures a wide range of AC-DC and DC-DC converters for a wide variety of industries.
