New 600W fan-less AC-DC power supply for medical (BF) and ITE/industrial applications

April 2, 2020 – XP Power has released a new series of convection cooled, 600W AC-DC power supplies. The ultra-compact power supplies deliver full load power under a wide range of conditions without additional cooling.

The UCH600 series is ideal for use where no forced air is available, or fan noise or the ingress of dirt is undesirable. This includes medical devices, as well as those requiring BF patient protection, that need to operate silently, also ITE or industrial electronics applications in environments where dirt ingress would be exacerbated by forced air cooling or where audible noise & fan reliability issues mean forced air cooling is impractical.

The power supplies meet EN55011/32 Class B for both conducted and radiated emissions with significant margin, making them a low risk for integration and system approvals for the end-use equipment. Class C harmonics compliance makes the ensure the UCH600 ideal for lighting and display applications.

The high levels of efficiency (up to 95%) minimize waste heat and ensure that power supplies in the UCH600 series can deliver their full rated power (600W) at ambient temperatures up to +50ºC, even at low line input. At 70ºC, a full 300W of power is available without any form of forced air cooling being required. For equipment designs where some forced air cooling is employed, a 12V/0.6A auxiliary fan supply is available.

The UCH600 series carries worldwide safety approvals for ITE/industrial and healthcare applications including IEC60950-1, IEC/EN/UL62368-1 and IEC/EN60601-1 3rd Edition.

The compact and low-profile power supply measures just 8.0” x 5.0” x 1.57”, giving an impressive power density of 9.5W/in3. Its U-channel construction and low profile allow for easy and flexible installation into a wide range of applications.

The UCH600 series is priced at $189.00 for 500 pcs orders and is available from Allied Electronics, Digi-Key, Mouser, Newark or direct from XP Power with a 3-year warranty.

How to Measure the Power Supply Rejection Ratio for LDOs

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

Noise on power supplies typically propagates to the output and is typically unwanted in applications like precision measurement and RF communication. LDOs reject AC noise based on their power-supply rejection ratio (PSRR). PSRR is a function of noise frequency and input-to-output voltage difference & its values are not consistently presented in manufacturers' data sheets. This app note shows the steps to determine the PSRR of Maxim's MAX38902A/B, equipping readers to perform their own PSRR measurements.
