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.
Solar Base Station
In rural areas, the lack of availability of an adequate power supply makes it very difficult to provide wireless services. In these areas, where the grid is less stable, the supply of power for communications networks largely depends on diesel, a very expensive solution. Renewable energy, such as solar or wind, can offer a solution to this challenge. An emerging provider of global LTE and 5G solutions has selected the CPS250-M series from Advanced Energy’s Artesyn product brand to provide reliable, compact and high efficiency power conversion in its solar base transceiver station product (BTS).
This open-frame AC-DC power supply comes in an industry standard 2x4 inch form factor and delivers up to 155 watts of output power with free air convection cooling and up to 250 watts with forced air. Features that make the CPS250-M series especially suitable to the solar base station application include a wide operating temperature (-20°C to 70°C), power factor of 0.99, operation up to 5000m altitude, high quality and reliability (MTBF of greater than 2.2 million hours), and safety approvals to the latest IEC/EN 62368-1 standard.
As more operators work to extend the reach of their networks, solar-powered BTS systems will play an important part in meeting the communication needs of local people and improving their living standards. We are proud to be part of that development.
Operations and maintenance (O&M) are the ‘back office’ in the world of broadcast and new media. Whether it is traditional television and radio or IPTV/OTT operators, the O&M platform covers sales, scheduling, finance and other functions. A provider of systems for O&M and signal monitoring, control and management has integrated the CSU550AP server power supply from Advanced Energy’s Artesyn product brand into its latest radio and television platform. Having suffered from using a competitor’s less reliable power supply, the customer was looking to improve reliability while remaining cost competitive.
Artesyn’s CSU series builds on the brand’s many years of experience in providing power solutions to the world’s leading makers of IT equipment. It uses the latest power switching technology and high-density component packaging techniques in the standard market's Common Redundant Power Supplies (CRPS) form factor. Artesyn’s CRPS power supplies have been deployed worldwide in thousands of systems powering hundreds of applications, with a reliability record that is hard to beat.
Cloud Convergence Switch
A leading provider of enterprise data center ICT equipment has selected the Artesyn CSU800AP server power supply for its next generation switches, which provide up to 100 Gigabit Ethernet switching for data centers and cloud computing services. The switches combine line-rate switching with rich functionality including advanced caching, virtualization, low latency and flow visualization to meet the needs of modern data centers.
The customer, which provides end-to-end networking solutions for telecom carriers, financial services companies, government agencies, education institutions and other enterprises, was looking for a compact and reliable power supply with high efficiency. The CSU800AP power supply is significantly narrower and shorter than similarly rated earlier generation power supplies, which releases valuable system space, while still conforming to the standard market's Common Redundant Power Supplies (CRPS) specification. It is certified for Platinum Level efficiency, peaking at 94%. Digital control allows the customer to monitor and manage the power supply as part of its advanced system management architecture. This customer requested conformal coating of the standard unit to increase its robustness, a modification that Artesyn was happy to provide.
