PCB mount AC/DC power supplies for cost-sensitive applications

19-02-2020 | XP | Power

XP Power offers two new series of PCB mount single output AC/DC power supplies that provide a convenient and cost-effective solution for modern domestic, IoT, and industrial tech applications.

Adding to the previously released 3W, 5W and 10W models, the VCE20 and VCE40 series give 20W and 40W of power respectively and provide an encapsulated version as well as a lower-cost open frame version, both of which are ideal for PCB mounting. The compact (VCE20 – 63.5mm x 30.5mm x 21.8mm, VCE40 - 85mm x 35.1mm x 27.7mm) size and inclusion of PCB pins assures ease of integration into designs, thereby safely interfacing mains power directly to the PCB. This compact design highlights an integral EMC filter, hold-up capacitor and fuse, so no external components are needed, offering a genuine space-saving solution.

Both series provide an extended universal input range of 85VAC to 305VAC, meeting worldwide applications – including those demanding higher voltage operation. The single output rail is provided in seven voltages from 3.3VDC to 48VDC (3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15, 24, 48).

The series offers a cost-effective solution for IoT including home automation, heating and lighting control, smart metering, set-top box and multiple industrial tech applications where a compact, low-cost AC/DC power supply is needed.
