A collaborative robot (cobot) manufacturer has selected Advanced Energy’s Artesyn LCM series of digitally-controlled AC-DC power supplies for its next generation industrial robotic arms. Designed to seamlessly integrate into a wide range of highly automated applications in manufacturing, warehousing and logistics, this family of robots needed cost-effective bulk power with some flexibility.
The cobot manufacturer integrated the LCM600 series and LCM1500 series with modifications made by our engineering team to effectively handle the peak current draw and back EMF during operation. Our experts also implemented special updates to meet ENERGY STAR Version 8.0 power consumption levels while the power supplies are in standby-passive mode. With the choice of several models delivering between 300 and 3000 watts of continuous power, the LCM series provide the customer with the range it needs to suit a variety of process automation applications.
Multislice CT Scanner
Computed Tomography (CT) is a medical diagnostic imaging test used to create detailed images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels.
A leading global medical technology and life sciences company has integrated Advanced Energy’s Artesyn MicroMP (uMP) configurable, digital #powersupply into a multislice CT scanner. The Artesyn uMP is a very flexible AC-DC power supply that provides up to 1800 watts across up to 12 outputs and features medical approvals. It has been developed to reduce the need for custom power supplies and can, in some cases, rival the cost of non-configurable units. All while providing market-leading density, efficiency and reliability.
In-Building Cellular Coverage
The reliability of indoor cellular service is an important component of consumer mobile service needs. Surveys suggest that network coverage is now the most important element for consumers when choosing a mobile provider – even more so than cost.
A wireless cellular product and service provider integrated Advanced Energy’s Artesyn CNS650-MU series into the primary distribution hub for its active Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for in-building cellular and public safety connectivity.
This hub converts the RF signal from the source to a digital signal for distribution around the building using fiber optic cables. The Artesyn CNS650-MU series offers 650 W fan cooled or 400 W convection cooled output power and provides reliable support for the 24/7 operation of this critical communications equipment. A built-in EMI filter enables the series to meet the more stringent Class B limits.
Intelligent warehouses and sorting facilities use sophisticated tracking and material handling technologies including cobots (collaborative robots) and automated guide vehicles (AGVs) to transport items. A major manufacturer of industrial transportation equipment has integrated Advanced Energy’s Artesyn iHP high power system into the charging stations for its latest generation AGVs. The Artesyn iHP is a configurable, intelligent high-power system that provides up to 24 kW in 3 kW increments across eight outputs using a variety of plug-in modules with a wide range of voltages and currents. Outputs can be paralleled up to 1600 A and run in series up to 1000 V.
A leading audio-visual company that provides a wide range of video processing products to broadcasters, studios and production companies worldwide needed a highly reliable power supply to support its next generation hardware platform. Advanced Energy’s Artesyn CSU550AP series power supply provided the customer with high efficiency and reliability in a small form factor.
Providing 1+1 redundancy for high availability applications, the CSU550AP series power supply is the ideal choice for server applications. Packing 550 watts of continuous power into a unit measuring just 2.89 x 7.28 inches (73.5 x 185.0 mm), the CSU550AP power supply delivers maximum output while freeing up valuable system space.
