Ultrasound has been used by radiologists and sonographers to image the human body for at least 50 years. It’s become a widely used diagnostic tool to visualize muscles, tendons, and internal organs to capture their sizes, structures and any pathological lesions with real-time images.
A New Generation of High Power, High Functionality Ultrasound Devices
A medical equipment manufacturer needed a highly reliable 650-watt power supply with medical approvals and Type BF-ready. Advanced Energy’s Artesyn CNS650-M series met all the customer’s technical requirements in a compact, industry-standard 4-by-6-inch footprint. The CNS650-M series is available in 12, 24, or 48 V single output models with options for open-frame, cover with end-fan, or U-base mounting. These power supplies also offer a built-in PMBus® interface for flexible and comprehensive digital communication with control and monitoring functions.
Wide Format Printing
Over the past 20 years, the printing industry has changed dramatically, but thanks to technology advancements and a huge appetite for mass customization, wide-format printing has firmly cemented itself as a business necessity.
A print giant was looking for a cost effective, digitally controlled power supply to incorporate into their large format printers. The LCM series AC-DC power supplies from Advanced Energy’s Artesyn product brand have built a reputation for outstanding quality and high efficiency at a competitive price, making it the perfect fit for the customer’s needs. The manufacturer selected multiple models from the LCM600 and LCM300 range, designed to provide a very economical bulk power solution of up to 300 or 600 watts respectively.
Outstanding support made it easy to integrate the product into the client’s design and, having invested in the manufacturing of the LCM series, Advanced Energy has been able to shorten lead times and lower the minimum order quantity for non-stock units, accommodating supply requirements.
The quality of the sound can make or break live events such as concerts, drama or dance performances and corporate presentations. At the heart of the audio system supporting these events is the sound desk or mixing console. These electronic devices, which combine sounds from many different audio sources, are also used in outside broadcast units and news studios.
Arenas, convention centers, theatres and broadcasters are upgrading traditional analogue consoles for digital units offering functionality that sound engineers dream about. Even early adopters of digital mixing consoles are upgrading to the latest technology. One leading manufacturer of sound desks has integrated Advanced Energy’s Artesyn LCC600 series fanless power supply into its latest generation digital mixing console to take advantage of its reliability and high power density.
Packing 600 watts of output power into a unit measuring just 4 by 9 inches and 1.57 inches high (101 x 228 x 40mm), the LCC600 series conduction cooled power supplies can deliver full output power over a wide baseplate temperature range of -40 to +85˚C, ideal for the environments in which sound mixing consoles may be used. LCC series power supplies are housed in robust, sealed enclosures with optional IP65 protection against the ingress of dust and water. The LCC600 power supply features a universal 90-264 Vac input with optional 180-305 Vac input – enabling it to be used virtually anywhere in the world without adjustment. Sound engineers can focus on creating awesome soundscapes thanks to the reliability of Artesyn’s power supply.
Ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. The images (called sonograms) can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions. Ultrasound scans are used to evaluate fetal development, and they can detect problems in the liver, heart, kidney, or abdomen. They may also assist in performing certain types of biopsy.
A leading medical equipment company has selected the LPS360-M series power supply from Advanced Energy’s Artesyn product brand for a new portable ultrasound to take advantage of the unit’s high power density, suitability for Type BF (body floating) applications and medical approvals including IEC60601-1-2 4th Edition. Able to deliver up to 360 watts with forced air in a 3x5 inch footprint that is less than 1U high, the LPS360-M series can also provide up to 240 watts with free air convection cooling. The Artesyn brand’s reputation for reliability (more than two million hours of calculated MTBF) and the company’s ability to quickly make minor modifications to the standard product helped the customer make the decision.
Multi-screen Video Wall
4K and 8K multi-screen video applications accelerate and drive increased power consumption. Whether you need to support multiple LCD displays, projectors, or large installations using LED matrix technology, you need a reliable power supply to run high-quality screens.
Experience Superior, Nimble Power System Performance and High Efficiency
Used by a world-leader in the audiovisual industry for their video wall application, Advanced Energy’s Artesyn DS1100SLPE power supplies eliminate fan noise at start-up. Novel firmware decreases disruptions and enables rapid reaction times. The main 12 V output delivers up to 90 A and holds within regulation down to zero load.
