GCS180 Series 93% Efficient Power Supply

XP Power expands their GCS series of single output, high-efficiency, ''green'' AC-DC power supplies with both ITE and Medical safety approvals. Complementing the GCS150 150 W models, the GCS180 range extends the power output capability up to 180 W. All models in the range have a no-load input power of less than 0.5 W and a typical efficiency of 93%. The GCS180 series is available in multiple mechanical formats, giving the designer several mounting configurations to choose from to suit the end application. Convection-cooled formats, providing up to 150 W output, are in an industry-standard 3 inch x 5 inch (127 mm x 76.2 mm) open-frame package; an optional enclosed cover option is also available. The full 180 W output is available when a forced air flow of only 7 CFM is provided by the user, or by using the optional top- or end-mounted fan formats.

Across the range, 5 single-output models are available, covering the popular nominal outputs of +12, +15, +24, +28, or +48 VDC. An additional 12 V/0.6 A fan output is standard. Due to the Class I and Class II input construction used, designers also have the choice of either using an input earth connection or not. A remote on/off feature is available across the range by specifying the -R option.

The GCS180 series meets the Class B limits of EN55011 and EN55022 for conducted emissions and Class A limits for radiated emissions with no additional filtering components required.

Complying with the IT equipment safety specifications of UL/EN60950-1 and the current 3rd edition medical safety standards of EN60601-1, ES60601-1 and CSA22.22 No 60601-1 per cUL, the GCS180 series is suitable for a wide range of medical, industrial, and communication applications. With a wide range of operating temperature, from -40°C to +70°C, the units can be used in most environments. There is no de-rating until above +50°C.
