High efficiency next-gen compact PFC module withstands extreme temperatures
09 August 2021
Advanced Energy’s Artesyn AIF06ZPFC series is the size of a smartphone but can withstand extremes of heat and cold for high-voltage, reliable power in a wide variety of demanding applications.
The compact AIF06ZPFC series power factor correction (PFC) module is rated at 2400W and accepts 85 – 264 Vac input and provides a nominal non-isolated output of 400 Vdc. It has a high efficiency of 97.3% and a power density of 395W per cubic inch.
It is ideal for a wide range of high-voltage applications including medical devices, unmanned aerial and terranean vehicles, and industrial applications where extreme heat and cold conditions are encountered.
AIF06ZPFC series PFC modules offer extensive monitoring, protection and adjustment facilities. Remote communications are supported by a built-in PMBus interface and there is an internal memory for user data storage. The modules feature accurate current sharing for parallel operation with two units without ORing diodes, and there is an option to use external diodes with three or more modules in parallel for high power solutions.
The encapsulated module incorporates a thermal baseplate and operates across a wide temperature range (-20 to +100°C) and can start from temperatures as low as -40°C.
The full brick module measures 61 x 116.8mm (2.4 x 4.6-inch) and is only 13.7mm in height. It is available from Relec Electronics.
The AIF06ZPFC can operate as a standalone power supply in medical equipment, insulation tests, process control and automation systems and high-voltage motors and pumps. It can also be used in tethered drones, requiring power transmission over longer distances.
