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 powers 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.
