VCS Series “Green” Industrial Power Supplies

XP Power announces the VCS series of chassis-mount, single-output AC-DC power supplies aimed at cost-sensitive industrial applications. Extending the line-up of XP Power’s V-Brand range of low-cost power supplies, these units suit applications that require an enclosed power supply with screw terminals.

The series comprises 50 W, 70 W, and 100 W models and are available with +5, +12, +15, +24, or +48 VDC outputs. A user-accessible voltage trim control provides a +/-10% adjustment of the output voltage, allowing for the use of non-standard voltages or to compensate for cable losses. These highly-efficient convection-cooled units require no additional heat sinking or forced airflow, saving space and additional costs. Also, having a no-load power consumption of less than 0.5 W, the VCS family helps designers ensure their products comply with internationally-recognized energy efficiency initiatives.

Unlike some competitor products, the VCS series accommodates the full universal input range from 90 VAC – 264 VAC without de-rating, ideal if the end application is to be used worldwide.

The VCS series can provide full output power from -10°C to +50°C without de-rating, and with de-rating to +70°C. Start-up is from -20°C.

The range meets the UL60950-1/EN60950-1 safety specifications for IT, commercial, and industrial equipment. In addition, the units comply with EN550022 level-B standard for both conducted and radiated emissions without the need for additional filtering components.

Overvoltage, overload, and short-circuit protection features are included as standard across the whole range.
