DS2900 Series

2900 Watt Front End AC-DC Power Supplies

The DS2900 series bulk front end AC-DC power supply accepts a 180–264 Vac input and provides a main 12 V output plus a 3.3 V or optional 5 V standby output. Rated at 2,900 watts, it has a high efficiency of 91% at 50% load. Housed in a 2U x 3U form factor enclosure, the DS2900 has a high power density of 24.8 watts per cubic inch.

The main 12 V output can deliver up to 240 amps, making it perfect for feeding downstream DC-DC converters in systems that use distributed power architectures (DPA). The power supply is primarily designed for computing, storage and datacom applications. Active current sharing allows up to eight DS2900 power supplies to be paralleled for very high current applications without need of additional components. The power supply is hot pluggable and ideal for fault tolerant and N+1 redundant applications.

This digitally-controlled power supply is PMBus™ compliant. A built-in I2C serial interface allows set-up, monitoring and control to be performed using Artesyn Embedded Power' universal PMBus graphical user interface.
