Open-frame ac-dc power supplies up to 250W

10 August 2014

XP Power has added a 250W range to its GCS series of high-efficiency, single-output ac-dc power supplies.

Certified to both industrial and medical international safety standards, and comprising 150, 180, and now 250W models, the GCS series is available in multiple mechanical formats. Ensuring the range is suitable for multiple applications, the GCS series is available in an industry standard 127 x 76.2mm open frame package, an enclosed covered version, and top or end-mounted fan cover options.

The open frame format allows the GCS250 to deliver up to 180W by convection cooling, and the full 250W when provided with only a 7cfm airflow or when using the optional fan mounted configurations.

With both Class I and Class II input construction techniques used, designers can opt to use an input earth scheme or not. These highly efficient supplies, typically up to 93 percent efficiency, are available with outputs covering all the popular nominal voltages from +12 to +48Vdc. A secondary 12Vdc/0.6A fan supply is also a standard feature, with remote on/off being available as an option.

No additional EMC filtering components are required since the GCS series meets Class B conducted and Class A radiated criteria as stipulated by the internationally recognized standards of EN55011 and EN55022. Also, the units comply with the 3rd edition medical safety standards EN60601-1, ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1, CSA22.2 No 60601-1, and the IT equipment safety standard UL/EN 60950-1.

Ideal for use in any ‘1U’ equipment, the GCS250 is available from Farnell, element14, Digi-Key, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and come with a three-year warranty.
