GCS150 Series – Versatile 80 Plus Certified 150 W

XP Power announces the GCS150 series of IT- and medically-approved 150 W single-output AC-DC power supplies that meet the stringent internationally-recognized 80 Plus Silver energy efficiency specifications. With active power factor correction (PFC), the series has a typical efficiency of 93% and a no-load input power consumption of less than 0.5 W. The 80 Plus Silver certification applies to power supplies specified for enterprise computing and data center applications.

The GCS150 is available with a +12, +15, +24, +28, or +48 VDC single output voltage; an additional 12 V fan output is also available. Using convection cooling alone, the GCS150 can deliver up to 110 W. When using only 7 CFM of forced air flow, or by specifying an optional fan model, the full output power of 150 W is available. Multiple mechanical formats give the design engineer plenty of choice when incorporating them into the end-application. A standard 3 inch x 5 inch (127 mm x 76.2 mm) open-frame or enclosed cover options are available as convection-cooled formats. Top- or end-mounted fan formats are also available.

Operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C will suit most environments and there is no de-rating until +50°C.

Accommodating both Class I and Class II input construction gives the designer the choice of using an earth connection or not. The series meets the Class B limits of both EN55011 and EN55022 for conducted and radiated emissions without the need of additional filtering components.

The GCS150 series complies with the IT equipment safety specifications of UL/EN/IEC 60950-1 and the current 3rd edition medical safety standards of EN 60601-1, ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1 and CSA22.22 No 60601-1. The units provide 2 x MOPP, and risk management files are also available on request.

An optional remove on/off version is available by specifying -R at the end of the manufacturer part number.
