Powerbox Develops 700W Power Supply for Conduction Cooling Applications
December 13, 2021
Optimized for conduction cooling, the OFI700A delivers high performance levels across a baseplate temperature range of -40 to +95 degrees C, without the use of a fan. The power supply operates with a wide universal input range from 85 to 264VAC with power factor correction (PFC) and is available with DC outputs of 12V, 28V (adjustable to 24V) or 48VDC. A 12V auxiliary is also provided.
In many industrial applications cooling of the dissipating elements relies on the use of fans and blowers. But there are applications where it is not possible or even allowed to use active ventilation. In harsh environments or in applications where the required reliability level imposes the need to remove all possible risk of failure, fans and blowers are not allowed. A sealed box such as is required for laser-cutting is but one example, but there is also a growing demand for equipment installed in supervisory rooms or even offices that for the comfort and health of the employees, generated noise is simply not allowed or needs to be very much limited.
To cover a wide range of applications, the OFI700A operates with a wide universal input range from 85 to 264VAC. The unit includes a PFC with a coefficient of 0.95/0.92 (110VAC/230VAC). For applications powered by a DC bus e.g., mining equipment, the OFI700A operates from 120 to 350VDC.
The OFI700A is available in three versions of single output DC voltage, 12V/58.4A ; 28V/25A and 48V/14.6A. The output voltage can be adjusted using the provided onboard potentiometer. For example, the 28V output can be adjusted from 22.4V to 33.6V, covering the 24V applications. An additional voltage of 12V/0.1A is provided for auxiliary functions.
