Amtex /TDK-Lambda has launched a new line of 1600W front-end power supplies for use in distributed, hot-pluggable and redundant power systems.
Key applications for the HFE1600 series include data centers, wireless base stations, industrial automation, telecommunications, RF power amplifiers, network equipment, storage systems and distributed power architectures.
Operating from a universal AC input from 85 to 265VAC, the HFE1600 power supply series provides a well regulated DC output of 12, 24, 26 or 48V. The power supplies can reach operating efficiencies of 92%.
Up to 5 power supplies can be paralleled with the 19 inch rack mount enclosure and automatic load sharing providing a maximum of 7600W output power. The paralleled connected, load-sharing, hot-swap, N + M redundant 7.6kW power system can disconnect individual faulty power supplies with an internal ORing MOSFET switch.
Alarm signals and Led indicators identify faulty units and up to 2 tack mounted enclosures can be paralleled or series connected for added power.
An integral MCU in each supply is a popular option and allows for remote programming, monitoring and status reporting via an isolated 12C and PMBus interface. Rack mounted supplies with the 12CPMBus can save energy during load shedding as HFE1600 supplies can be individually turned on or off.
Up to two power racks containing up to ten model HFE1600 power supplies can be zero-stacked, with no space required between racks, and connected in parallel to provide up to 15.2kW of total output power in a compact 2U vertical space.
