1000 W Module Cuts Cost of Configurable Power Supply

03 August 2016

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced a 1000 watt module for its next generation MicroMP (µMP) configurable power supply. Previously, applications that require a single output voltage around 1000 W would have used four single slot modules tied in parallel, but this 1000 W module replaces those four modules with a single three-slot module, not only saving a slot but also half the cost of the previous four-module solution.

The SK module offers a nominal 24 V or 48 V output, adjustable from 18 to 30 V or 33 to 60 V respectively. It is ideal for medical and industrial applications requiring one higher power output with multiple additional outputs, which can be configured between 0.9 and 60 V using the existing µMP modules, enabling nearly limitless output power configurations. With modules connected in series, the µMP16 case can achieve output voltages up to 360 Vdc.

TheµMP configurable power supply series offers a maximum power output of 1800 watts in the µMP16 case, which offers a power density of 22.9 W/in3 and efficiency of up to 91 percent, making it even more cost effective for equipment that has multiple power input requirements. The power supply case features six slots that users can configure from a range of adjustable power modules. This new generation µMP series has been redesigned with greater digital integration for increased reliability and a 36 percent reduction in fan noise over the first generation product.

Artesyn’s intuitive GUI-based control software (which can be downloaded free from uses Artesyn’s configurable power supplies, provides users with superior flexibility-- including real-time input voltage—as well as current and temperature monitoring to provide easy performance confirmation.

Designed to ensure high efficiency and reliability – even in extreme environmental conditions – the µMP16 is rated for performance at temperatures from -40 to 70° C. It can withstand a shock of more than 50 G and meets the MIL-STD-810G specification for vibration. The calculated mean time between failures is more than 350,000 hours at full load. Conformal coating is also available as an option.

The power supply is approved to EN60601-1 and UL ES60601-1 medical safety standards and with 2X Means of Patient Protection (MOPP), it can be used in non-patient contact and non-patient critical equipment.
