Low-cost, open-frame power supplies for healthcare, household and ITE applications

25-03-2019 | XP | Power

XP Power has launched two new series of low-profile, open-frame power supplies addressing the demand for low-cost 40W and 60W solutions that maintain a wide range of applications within the domestic/household, medical and ITE/industrial sectors. The new FCS40 and FCS60 address the pressure of pricing by consolidating low unit cost with easy integration into multiple end equipment markets with international agency approvals, low emissions, and high efficiency. This is further supported by the wide operating temperature (-25C to +70C) that allows use in a broad mixture of environments. The new supplies provide a single output of either 12, 15, 18, 24, 36 or 48V at efficiencies up to 86%, model dependant. An on-board potentiometer enables the voltage to be trimmed by 10%, optimising the voltage for specific load demands or voltage drops. For ITE and industrial applications, the supplies are approved to IEC60950-1 and IEC/EN/cUL62368-1 as well as satisfying the demands of the LVD. IEC60335-1 approval makes the FCS40 and FCS60 applicable to domestic and household applications.
