With standard features including power factor correction, variable speed ‘smart fans’, digital control, a five-year warranty and a typical efficiency of greater than 90%, Artesyn is offering premium functionality at prices that compete with more basic power supplies.
Artesyn Embedded Technologies, which embraces the well-known Astec brand, today announced that its Taiwan Design Center has been awarded ISO 9001:2015 certification of its quality management system for the design of switching power supplies.
At the Open Compute Project (OCP) U.S. Summit 2018, Artesyn Embedded Technologies will showcase its power solutions for hyperscale and cloud computing data centers, which focus on optimizing efficiency and power density from the power cord to the chip.
Artesyn has announced two new models in its ADO300 series 300W eighth-brick converters, providing single 3.3V or 5V outputs.
The CSU800AP is housed in a compact 1U high enclosure measuring just 2.89 x 7.28 inches (73.5 x 185.0 mm) – a significantly smaller footprint than that of similarly rated earlier generation power supplies – achieved by using the latest power switching technology and high density component packaging techniques.
Collon Lee, Artesyn’s Vice President of Global Technical Support, spoke with EE Times Japan about the power requirements for medical and industrial applications. He discusses the benefits of configurable, modular AC-DC power supplies including Artesyn’s MicroMP (uMP) and Intelligent High Power (iHP) systems. Collon also introduces the advantages to customers of using digital control in power supplies.
