New PSU meets power and reliability demands of rugged, high-density embedded systems
Aitech Defense Systems has expanded its line of PSUs with the P233. The device is designed to meet the demands of highly integrated embedded systems. The 3U VITA 62-compliant PSU offers an output capacity of up to 500W as well as a broad voltage input range of 18VDC to 32VDC and can be used in a range of VME, VPX and CompactPCI systems.
Two power supplies can be connected in parallel with a load sharing option to provide 1,000W of total output power. Alternatively, for added system reliability and redundancy, the connected units can function as two parallel, redundant 500W supplies with auto-failover.
The MIL-STD-704-compliant device features six supply outputs: 3.3V, +12V, +5V, ±12V AUX and +3.3V AUX, each with independent current limiting as well as numerous protection mechanisms to ensure the PSU will not be damaged, even if connected to an incorrect or malfunctioning power source. Complete with internal built-in test (BIT) and input line filters that protect from input power overvoltage, surges and reverse polarity, the P233 provides exceptional reliability.
