XP Power unveils highly efficient 150W & 200W power supplies

XP Power has released two series of external power supplies that are intended for modern medical applications, including safety approvals for home-based healthcare, and IT applications where energy efficiency and safety approvals are considered critical.

Typical efficiencies for ALM150 models reach 93%, and 92% for the ALM200 models. All of the PSUs meet Energy Efficiency Level VI and consume less than 0.15W in standby mode.

For medical applications, the PSUs are approved to ANSI/AMMI ES60601-1, ANSI/AMMI HA60601-1-11, EN/IEC60601-1 and EN/IEC60601-1-11. Both series are also approved to UL/EN/IEC62368 & IEC60950 for ITE applications and carry CCC, PSE, KC & RCM approvals. The products are compliant with all the latest EMC legislation including the medical 60601-1-2 4th edition.

The ALM150 series offers power levels up to 150W while the ALM200 series delivers 200W of power. Both series offer five single output versions with output voltages of 12.0V, 15.0V, 19.0V, 24.0V and 48.0V. A universal input voltage range (80 to 264VAC) is standard on both series, confirming their suitability for worldwide use and home healthcare applications. US, European and UK mains cables are available.

Due to the high efficiency, the PSUs are housed in an IP32 vent-free plastic case. This allows for safe wipe-down of the units in environments where hygiene is critical, such as medical applications and the food industry.

The ALM150 and ALM200 series operate at temperatures between 0C and +60C and can deliver their full rated power at ambient temperatures as high as +40C.

The ALM150 / ALM200 series is available from Mouser, Digi-Key, element14, Farnell, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and offers a 3-year warranty.
