12-01-2024 | Cosel | Power

COSEL Co, Ltd has launched a wide range of low-profile power supplies for medical applications. The WMA series comprises two families, the WMA-F and the WMA-H. The WMA-F has a universal input range of 85VAC to 264VAC and is available in three power levels: 35W, 75W and 100W. Designed for medical systems integration, the WMA-H is available in two power levels, 150W and 350W, and in two ranges of input voltage that are switch-selectable. The overall series complies with international safety standards for demanding medical applications and provides an isolation grade of 2MOPP (IN/OUT) and 1MOPP (IN/FG). Based on a robust platform using the latest power switching technologies, the units' design is optimised to supply an excellent price/performance ratio for medical applications requiring a high-quality power solution. The WMA series is also suitable for demanding industrial fix applications requiring high isolation, as specified in Over Voltage Category III. The WMA-35-75-100F and WMA-150H are design optimised for convection cooling, while the WMA-350H includes a fan for additional cooling and performance in demanding applications.

Medical applications require robust and highly reliable power supplies that can operate worldwide and comply with many different safety regulations. Also, new equipment needs power supplies to have a height measurement of less than 1U (44.45mm - 1.75"). To accommodate this slim profile adopted by the medical industry manufacturers, the series has a height of just 30mm. Based on many years of expertise, the company's power designers have developed an optimised platform delivering an excellent price/performance ratio without compromising on quality and reliability. Combining a standardised platform and best practices in power and thermal management, the series achieves a high-efficiency level of up to 91% at the high line and utilises a limited number of components, contributing to higher reliability and reduced cost. The WMA series has also been designed for industrial applications such as semiconductors manufacturing equipment, complying with Semiconductor Processing Equipment Voltage Sag Immunity SEMI F47 and fix applications required to meet Over Voltage Category III.

The WMA series comprises five models: WMA35F, WMA75F, WMA100F, WMA150H and the WMA350H, covering a power range from 35W to 350W. The WMA35F is available in four single output voltages: 5V, 12V, 24V and 48V. The WMA75F, WMA100F and WMA150H are available in three single output voltages, 12V, 24V and 48V. The WMA350H is available in four single output voltages, 12V, 24V, 36V and 48V. With all models the output voltage can be trimmed using the built-in potentiometer.

The WMA-F series can be operated within a universal Input range of 85 to 264VAC, and designed for systems integration, the WMA-H can be operated between 85 to 132VAC and 170 to 264VAC, switch selectable.

The WMA series includes inrush current limiting circuitry and overcurrent and overvoltage protection. Exhibiting versatility and robustness, the power supplies can be operated in an environmental temperature range of -20C to +70C. A derating may apply depending on the final equipment assembly style and cooling conditions.

With its medical and industrial focus, the WMA series' input to output isolation complies with 2MOPP, and its input to Frame Ground (FG) complies with 1MOPP. The units are approved in accordance with UL62368-1, C-UL (equivalent to CAN/CSA-C22.2 No.62368-1), EN62368-1, ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1, C-UL (equivalent to CAN/CSA-C22.2 No.60601-1), EN60601-1 3rd, EN61558-2-16 (OVC III), and comply with IEC60601-1-2 4th Ed.

Though the WMA35-75-100F has no built-in active PFC, it fully complies with the IEC61000-3-2 (Class A). Designed for systems with integrated frontend PFC, depending on the final application the WMA150-350H may require external power factor correction circuitry.

The result of careful design, the series' EMI emissions comply with CISPR11-B, CISPR32-B, EN55011-B, EN55032-B, FCC Part 15-B, FCC Part 18-B and in EMC immunity with EN61000-4-2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 11.

The series is built on an aluminium chassis for strength and longevity and enclosed in a hot-dip galvanised steel board (SGCC) case. The WMA35F measures 30mm x 82mm x 99mm (1.18" x 3.23" x 3.90") (W x H x D) and has a weight of 200g max. The WMA75F measures 30mm x 97mm x 99mm (1.18" x 3.82" x 3.9") (W x H x D), and has a weight of 250g max. The WMA100F measures 30mm x 97mm x 129mm (1.18mm x 3.82mm x 5.08mm) (W x H x D) and has a weight of 300g max. The WMA150H measures 30mm x 97mm x 159mm (1.18" x 3.82" x 6.26") (W x H x D) and has a weight of 500g max. The WMA350H measures 115mm x 30mm x 215mm (4.53" x 1.18" x 8.46") (W x H x D), and weighs 800g max.

The combination of small size, excellent cost/performance ratio and high quality make the series the ideal power solution for demanding applications not only in the medical field but also for test and measurement and industrial applications, including household and similar electrical appliances.

The series provides a five-year warranty and conforms to the European RoHS and Low Voltage Directives.
