Desktop power supplies meet latest level VI and CoC Tier 2 energy standards

27-01-2017 | XP | Power

XP Power today announced three new series of external/desktop power supplies that meet the latest level VI and CoC Tier 2 green standards. The single output power supplies are perfect for customers requiring a low power, external, 18W, 24W or 36W power source for their new designs that need to meet current legislation aimed at increasing energy efficiency and reducing no load power consumption. The VET18, VET24 and VET36 ranges feature a high average efficiency of up to 87% typical, measured at 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% load conditions. Accordingly, they meet the requirements from the Department of Energy (DoE) in the US and the Code of Conduct (CoC) Tier 2 in the EU. These standards set limits for average energy efficiency and no load power consumption. The new requirement lowers the no load power to less than 0.075W for the 6W-36W output power level. The series power supplies all feature a no load input power of <0.075W, thus meeting the new requirements. Less power is consumed when the end unit is off, or not connected to the power source. Able to operate over a wide temperature range of 0C to +60C with full power to +40C (+45C derating for VET36), the series will easily operate in most environments. All models have ITE 60950-1 safety approval and meet Class B limits for both conducted and radiated emissions. They form part of the company’s low cost V-brand series, offering a less expensive option for cost sensitive applications. The desktop power supplies feature an IEC input connector. An output cable is fitted with a barrel jack having 2.5mm inner and 5.5mm outer diameter ‘standard’ dimensions. The range will find favour with users in many industry areas including automation and process control, broadcast, fixed telecom, instrumentation, networking/datacom/computing, mobile comms and specialist equipment.
