Data Center Switching
A manufacturer of data center and telecom networking solutions has selected the Artesyn DS460S front end AC-DC power supply for its next generation series of 10 GbE switches. These switches are used by telecom carriers, financial services companies, government agencies, education institutions and a wide range of private enterprises in top-of-rack, end-of-row or other data center switching architectures. They can provide access layer switching in large data center networks, distribution or convergence layer services in large campus networks or core switching in medium and small networks.
The manufacturer will benefit from the high performing DS460S series which is rated at 460 watts and generates a main payload output of 12.3 Vdc and an auxiliary output of 12 Vdc for powering standby circuitry. It accepts a wide range 90–264Vac input and has a high typical conversion efficiency of 92% at 50% load. This high efficiency and reliability in a small package makes the DS460S series popular in rack-mounted server and networking switch applications.
4G Base Station
One of the world’s fastest growing telecom operators is using Artesyn’s AVD100 series of 100 to 120 Watt, 1/16th brick DC-DC converters on the embedded controller board inside its new 4G base station (BTS). This pioneering mobile network operator selected the Artesyn module due to its high density, excellent thermal performance and high efficiency (up to 92.5%). Since space was at a premium on the controller PCB, every component had to offer maximum value to the end application.
Laser Marking, Welding & Cutting
One of the world’s leading laser machine manufacturers has selected Artesyn’s LCM1500 series AC-DC power supply for its latest cutting machine, which will be used in the manufacture of metal parts for automobiles, small tools and other applications. The customer was looking for a cost-effective power supply but didn’t want to cut any corners in terms of reliability. This is the sweet spot for Artesyn’s LCM series single-output bulk front end power supplies. Backed by Artesyn’s legendary high quality and with a best-cost design and manufacturing process, the LCM series was definitely cut out for this kind of application.
Critically ill patients often require specialist medical equipment such as ventilators and patient monitors. A leading manufacturer of intensive care unit (ICU) equipment is using Artesyn’s LPS100-M series open frame AC-DC power supplies in its next generation patient monitor. The unit is designed for the specific sensitivities of patients with high needs and the LPS100-M series takes care of the monitor’s needs with a 100 watt medically-approved single output power source in a compact footprint at a competitive price.
Burn-in testing is used to detect early failures in a population of electronic products. It usually requires the electrical testing of a product, using an expected operating electrical cycle over a specified period. Thermal or environmental stress screening can also be used. A manufacturer of automated test equipment (ATE) has selected Artesyn’s iHP series intelligent, configurable high power system for its new burn-in test equipment range for semiconductor ICs, LEDs and touch panel displays. The wide range of outputs, flexibility, efficiency and built-in intelligence of the series made this an easy decision for the customer. The iHP series also meets the SEMI F47 voltage sag immunity standard, developed for the semiconductor industry and an important safety requirement in semiconductor processing equipment.
