Module for second generation MicroMP series configurable AC-DC power supplies

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced the latest four-slot case and a new hold-up module for its second generation MicroMP (µMP) series configurable AC-DC power supplies.

Designated µMP09, the new enclosure supports a maximum power output of 550 watts at 85-180 Vac and 1100 watts and 80-263 Vac. The new hold-up module is designed for high-reliability applications and enables the supply to continue providing power for a period of time if the input power is interrupted.

Measuring 256.9 x 88.9 x 40.0 mm, the μMP09 case can be configured using Artesyn’s family of highly efficient, digitally controlled power modules certified to service a diverse range of applications including industrial, medical, test and measurement, telecoms, process control and military and aerospace systems.

Designed to ensure high efficiency and reliability, the µMP09 is rated for performance at temperatures from -40 to 700C and can withstand a shock of more than 50G and meets the MIL-STD-810G specification for vibration. The calculated mean time between failures is more than 350,000 hours at full load. Conformal coating is also available as an option.

The power supply is fully approved to the third edition of the EN60601-1 and UL ES60601-1 medical safety standards and with 2X Means of Patient Protection (2XMOPP), it can be used in non-patient contact and non-patient critical equipment.

The new hold-up module for Artesyn’s μMP systems is designed to maintain electronic system operation during extended input bus drop-out scenarios. The module is designed to enable compliance with the SEMI F47 specification, an industry standard for voltage sag immunity, which says that industrial equipment must tolerate voltage sags, or dips, on the AC mains supply to specific depths and durations. While it is a critical requirement for many semiconductor processing applications, many other industries use SEMI F47 to benchmark the reliability and productivity of their equipment.
