C&D Technologies has announced the availability of a new AC/DC front-end power supply. The D1U-W-1600-12-HC delivers up to 1600W (220VAC), 1200W (110VAC) from its 12V output. The 1U high unit has leading power density of 17.5W/cu.in (1.1W/cm3) and delivers highly efficient, reliable performance.
Typical applications for the D1U-W-1600-12-HC include blade servers, workstations, storage systems, and any system utilizing a 12V distributed power architecture. The unit uses proven topology and utilizes high-density DC/DC packaging techniques to maximise space efficiency. Planar magnetic devices are used to provide better quality and tighter process control.
The D1U-W-1600-12-HC is available with standby voltages of either 3.3V or 5V. Key features of the comprehensive specification include N+1 redundancy, hot-swapabilty, active current share, an I2C bus, status indicators and over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature protection.
Overall dimensions of the unit are 304.8mm x 120.7mm x 40.6mm. Operating temperature range is 0°C to +50°C. The enclosure incorporates cooling fans Three D1U-W-1600-12-HC units fit into an optional 1U high 19” wide powershelf, for a total system power of 4,800W.
