Bel Power Announces 18 kW HVDC Power Shelf with 240 to 380 V DC Inputs

29 August 2018

Bel Power Solutions and Protection, a Bel group company and global manufacturer of power management devices, announces the SPSPFE3-07 power shelf, which provides rectification, system management and power distribution from high-voltage DC (HVDC) mains (240/380 V DC) power into a main output of 12 V DC for powering intermediate bus architectures up to 15 kW (5+1) in high-performance servers, routers and network switches.

Each SPSPFE3-07 shelf can be configured with up to six PFE3000-12-069RA or TET3000-12-069RA power supplies, which are both hot swap and redundancy capable, and contain two separate DC inputs (one inlet Source: Bel Power SolutionsSource: Bel Power Solutionspowers three power modules). Featuring full digital controls for improved performance, cooling is managed by a fan controlled by the DSP controller. The shelf is compatible with the Open Compute rack design.

The shelf incorporates system communications via the I2C/PMBus protocol, allowing for full monitoring of supplies, controls and programming. Multiple protections such as over-temperature, output overvoltage and output overcurrent are also standard. An always-on +12 V 60 W standby output is provided, as well as a slot for an optional network attached controller, which can be included in the shelf or bought separately. The network attached controller provides monitoring and control functions through a 10/100 MB base Ethernet port and can be connected directly to the data center management network.

SPSPFE-07 samples are available upon request. For more detailed information, visit the OCP Data Center Solutions page or download the datasheet.
