08 November 2012 TDK adds to HFE1600 range of front end power supplies TDK-Lambda has extended its HFE1600 range of 1.6kW high density, front end power supplies to include a new 32V model. Suitable for use in broadcast applications, the HFE1600-32 operates from a universal 85 to 265Vac input, and has an efficiency rating of up to 92%. According to TDK, this minimises heat dissipation and power consumption, and means the module meets Climate Savers Computing efficiency standards. As with other models in the HFE1600 range, the HFE1600-32 ac/dc power supply can be used individually or up to five units can be mounted into a dedicated 1U rack delivering 8kW. To form a hot swap N+1 redundant power system, up to 10 units can be configured in parallel with single wire current sharing. TDK has also integrated a keying system to prevent misinsertion of modules into adjacent racks of differing voltage. Output voltage is programmable by resistance, external voltage or optional PM Bus compatible I2C communication interface. The HFE1600 hot swap front end power supplies comply with EN55022 and FCC Class A radiated and Class B conducted emissions and meet IEC61000-4 immunity. All models are safety approved to EN/IEC/UL 60950-1 edition 2 with CE mark and are backed by a three year warranty.
