Low-cost 60W power supplies

XP Power has released a series of 60W low profile AC-DC power supplies for use in a wide variety of cost-sensitive applications including information technology equipment, industrial electronics, domestic, Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics.

The modules operate from 90-305VAC, making them suitable for global factory or roadside equipment running 4-wire 480VAC 3-phase (277VAC nominal), or 1-phase (110/230VAC nominal) systems.

With a total of eight devices in the series, regulated output voltages from 5.0VDC to 54.0VDC are covered at power levels up to 60W. The convection-cooled devices require no forced air, ensuring silent operation which is a common requirement in noise-sensitive audio/video (AV) applications as well as an office or domestic settings.

OVC III (overvoltage category III) approval means that VCB60 units can be used in building wiring upstream of wall sockets that require safety-approved products. The approval removes any need for additional filtering and safety approvals saving space, time, and cost.

The VCB60 series carries multiple approvals including EN55024, EN55035, EN61000-4 for EMC immunity, and EN55032, EN55014, and EN61000-3 for EMC emissions. Safety approvals include IEC60950, IEC62368 and IEC60355. The broad range of approvals ensures that the units can be safely used in a wide range of ITE, industrial and domestic applications while ensuring they meet noise requirements without external filtering.

Efficiency is 90% ensuring that waste heat is minimised. This reduces thermal management requirements and also decreases operating temperature, thereby enhancing the reliability of the overall system. Various protection mechanisms are incorporated including short circuits, overvoltage, and overload protection.

VCB60 units are able to operate over the temperature range -10C to +60C and offer full power at temperatures up to +50C
