Two-day sample service delivers modular power solutions
FiDUS Power is now able to deliver samples of modular power products from its facility based in Aldermaston in only two days. Using industrial and medically approved configurable power supplies, the company can create a large number of configurations of fully-approved power supplies from 125-1200W.
To facilitate this vital design support service, the company holds stock of medical and industrial AC front ends and DC output modules which each individually provide the relevant safety approval. Power solutions can be configured from 1.5VDC to 240VDC with currents up to 100A and up to 16 outputs. Interconnects, busbars and loom kits are also stocked to make it easy for engineers to connect products to their systems without having to buy a new crimp tool or find housing connectors and pins.
The configured supplies are built on 600W, and 1200W front ends with standard 3" x 5" and 6" x 6" footprints respectively, resulting in very high power densities. Devices are fully-featured, with remote control and monitoring capability of both voltage and current, AC and DC OK signals, 2 x 5V standby rail, global and individual inhibit/enable. The units have a full set of industrial and medical safety approvals to the latest editions, high-quality EMC passes and field-proven reliability.
Comments Mark Gibbons, engineering manager at FiDUS Power: “The power supply is often left to the final part of the design cycle until features are finalized by-product characterization and market trials. Therefore it is important for design engineers that they can get exactly the power configuration they require on very short lead times. Otherwise, they may miss their market window or be forced to compromise.”
