Smallest configurable power supply

FiDUS Power has announced two new series of industrial and medically-approved, 600W configurable power supplies, believed to be the world’s smallest. Ultra-compact, lightweight and powerful, the new supplies measure just 3” x 5″ and weigh only 600g.

The units have an input operating range of 85-264VAC and up to four single or dual output modules, allowing configuration of 1-8 outputs. Single output modules have voltage ranges from 1.5 to 60VDC with currents up to 25A. Series and parallel combinations of the modules can result in output voltages of up to 240VDC and a maximum current of 100A from a single configuration. Dual output voltages range from 1.5 to 15VDC with currents up to 5A.

Says Mark Gibbons, engineering manager at FiDUS Power: “The 600W configurable supplies have a very full feature set allowing effective integration of monitoring and control within the end application. Markets such as medical equipment, industrial equipment, scientific instruments, test and measurement, broadcast, surgical robots, laser control, RF equipment, battery-charging applications are areas where the product has been successfully used.”

Units can operate from -20 to 70°C with an intelligent fan control built in. Each module has an individual inhibit, power good, 5V 10mA bias, remote sense, current and voltage remote control and monitoring. The front-end module has a global inhibit, AC OK and 5V 200mA bias supply. The unit can also be used as a constant current as well as a constant voltage source. All models comply with EN55011/55022 Level B conducted and radiated emission standards. The PSUs also meet EN60601-1-2 4th edition medical immunity standard. The industrial supply is safety approved to IEC/EN/CSA/UL60950-1; the medical version is approved to IEC/EN/CSA/UL60601-1 and ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1 and CE marked conforming to the low voltage and RoHS directives.

The products are field and factory configurable. Free engineering samples can be delivered from stock on short lead-times. All models are backed by a FiDUS 5-year warranty.
