A convection-cooled modular power supply platform that delivers 600W without fan assisted cooling has been developed by Excelsys Technologies.
Claimed by the company to be the only fanless modular power supply on the market, the CoolX600 comes in a 8.5 x 4.5 x 1U package.
Because it uses natural convection cooling Excelsys says it provides higher system reliability with typically 25% longer lifetime than comparative equipment. CoolX600 has conversion efficiencies of up to 94% and provides high input surge protection of 4KV Line to PE for operation in harsh environments as well as reverse energy protection without the use of external blocking diodes. It is safety certified operation at altitudes up to 5000m.
A 24W medically isolated, auxiliary supply is available as a standard feature.
The CX06S is available with safety certifications to IEC60950 2nd edition for industrial applications whereas the CX06M carries IEC60601-1 3rd edition & IEC60601-1-2 4th edition (EMC) for medical applications. Stand-out medical features include BF rating (Body Floating), dual fusing, 2 x MOPP, <300uA leakage current.
Other features include 4KV input surge immunity and the ability to withstand input voltages of up to 300VAC.
The CoolX600 can be populated with up to four CoolMods, providing up to 4 isolated DC outputs ranging from 2.5V to 58.0V.
Additionally CoolPacs can be paralleled for higher power and N+1 Redundancy applications and CoolX is user-field-configurable so customers can configure and reconfigure without voiding warranty or affecting safety.
The product has the following safety agency certifications; Medical; EN60601 3rd Edition and 4th Edition compliance, 2 MOPP, Dual Fused and BF rating. For industrial applications; EN60950, EN62386-1, ISO9000, SEMI F47 and for Defence and Aerospace; MIL810G and MIL461 certified and CE101/102.
