XP Power – Industrial supplies for battery-backed applications (BCS75)Jul 6 2012 - Power [More Power Articles]
Aimed at a broad range of applications that use battery backup to maintain equipment operation during a mains failure, XP power has announced the new BCS series of industrial power supplies.
The series offers 75W, 100W or 155W versions which are available with either 13.8VDC or 27.6VDC for +12VDC or +24VDC nominal outputs. The units provide a constant voltage source to power the load. A separate constant voltage / constant current output charges the standby battery. An optional third +5VDC / 3A regulated output is available across the range to supply logic, fans or additional control functions.
In the event of a power loss on the AC input, the battery charging output switches to an input from the battery source providing a power source to the load. Protection features of the BCS series include battery overload, reverse polarity, output overvoltage, and output short circuit that prevents damage to the load, the external batteries and the power supply itself. Control signals provide low battery voltage disconnect, battery low warning and AC OK.
The BCS75 (75W), BCS100 (100W) and BCS155 (155W) models are enclosed metal cased units and can deliver the full load from – 20C to +50C without derating or +70C with derating. The 75W and 100W ranges are also available in an optional open-frame format.
Accommodating the full 90 – 264 VAC universal input range, the BCS series is suitable for worldwide use and carries EN/UL60950 approval for IT and industrial equipment, says the company.More news from XP
