Industrial supplies target battery backup applications
XP Power has announced the BCS series of industrial supplies aimed at applications that use battery backup to maintain equipment operation during a mains failure.
The series offers 75, 100 and 155W versions which are available with either 13.8 or 27.6VDC for 12 or 24VDC nominal outputs.
The units are designed to provide a constant voltage source to power the load. A separate constant voltage/constant current output charges the standby battery, while an optional third 5VDC/3A regulated output is available to supply logic, fans or additional control functions.
In the event of a power loss on the ac input, the battery charging output switches to an input from the battery source and provides a power source to the load. Protection features include battery overload, reverse polarity, output overvoltage, and output short circuit to prevent damage.
The various models are enclosed in metal cased units and can deliver the full load from -20 to 50°C without derating, or 70°C with derating.
Accommodating the full 90 to 264VAC universal input range, the BCS series is suitable for worldwide use and carries EN/UL60950 approval for IT and industrial equipment.
