Taking the heat out of development cycles

22 October 2021

The CFM500S series of compact, high-power density, single-output AC/DC power modules by Cincon optimise heat dissipation technology to reduce development time.

The CFM500S 500W power modules are available from Relec Electronics. The compact, highly reliable AC/DC power modules are constructed with baseplate cooling which makes them suitable for a wide range of applications where fan cooling is not practical, such as medical equipment or audio-visual applications such as mixing desks and liver performance consoles.

Cincon’s heat dissipation technology, using a baseplate cooling design, directs heat to the bottom of the power supply, where it can be dissipated into an external cold all or heatsink. The ability to develop thermally efficient power supplies can significantly shorten the development cycle and reduce time to market for products displaying minimal power loss and high efficiency.

The CFM500 series of power modules operate at up to 410W without fans at 70°C and have a universal input range of 90 ~ 264Vac.

Versions are available with different outputs, from 12V to 48V and +5V standby output and 12V fan output as standard. All units meet regulatory approvals for various applications, namely EN62368-1 (industrial), EN60335-1 (household) and EN/UL60601 (medical)-certified models. 

The CFM500S power modules are available in cased and open frame versions and have active power factor correction (PFC)meeting EN61000-3-2 Class D. They also have high efficiency of up to 94.5% and a high power density of up to 20.9W/inch3.

Safety features include over-temperature protection, continuous short circuit protection, as well as Power Good and Power Fail signals.

The compact CFM500S power modules measure just 5” x 3” x 1.55” (127mm x 76mm x 39mm) and operate at a wide ambient temperature range of -40°C to +80°C.
