Power supply solution for display, lighting, ITE and industrial applications

07-06-2021 | XP | Power

XP Power has released a new range of open-frame 80W power supplies that provides a compact and low-cost solution for an extensive range of display, lighting, industrial and technology applications. The low-cost units give a high specification at a competitive cost point, assuring their appropriateness for high-volume applications.

The LCE80 is ideal for fan-less applications as no forced air is needed. This improves the reliability of the overall system while decreasing system size and weight and simplifying mechanical design. The silent fan-less operation makes the device ideal for applications where audible noise can be problematic, such as office environments.

The range provides ten single output models covering the range 5V to 54V with efficiency levels as high as 90%. The output functions in constant voltage or constant current mode depending on the load condition, assuring compatibility with various applications.

An ultra-wide input range of 90VAC to 305VAC is offered as standard, enabling the units to run safely at a single-phase high line of 277VAC nominal. All units in the range provide Class I and Class II operation and carry a broad range of relevant approvals including EN55032, EN55015 and EN61000-3 for EMC emissions and EN55035 and EN61547 for EMC immunity. Furthermore, the units are approved to EN/UL/IEC62368-1 for ITE safety and EN61347-1/UL8750 for lighting and displays.

For loads of more than 50W all the units meet the harmonic Class C limits that are essential for lighting applications. They are also compliant with the limited power source demands for 12V and above, assuring a decreased risk of fire or electrocution throughout operation and handling and fault scenarios.

Housed in a compact and convenient 4” x 2” x 1.1” (101.6mm x 50.8mm x 27.9mm) open frame format, the units comprise short circuit, overvoltage and overload protection that protect the power supply and any load that it is powering.
