CoolX600 power supplies feature PMBus communication

The CoolX600 Series of 600W convection-cooled modular power supplies from Excelsys are now available with an PMBus communication option.

PMBus offers system builders a standard way to communicate with power converters over a digital communications bus by providing a full set of commands and data structures required by power control and management components.

According to the company, the CoolX Series PMBus interface facilitates the communication of operating parameters such as output voltage, output current and internal temperature with other PMBus enabled devices.

It also provides the remote adjustment of parameters such as output voltage level, current limit, as well as control features, such as power supply and individual output enable/inhibit.

The convection-cooled CoolX600 Series is a user configurable modular power supply which delivers 600W without fan assisted cooling from an 8.5 x 4.5 x 1U package.

Other features include 4KV input surge immunity, and the ability to withstand input voltages of up to 300V AC, making it suitable for use in remote locations.

Typical applications include medical clinical diagnostic equipment, medical lasers, dialysis equipment, industrial machines, automation equipment, printing, telecommunications, audio equipment, radar, communications, and test and measurement.
