GCS250 Series Open-Frame AC-DC Power Supplies

GCS250 Series Open-Frame AC-DC Power Supplies

XP Power announces the addition of a 250 W range to its GCS series of high-efficiency single-output AC-DC power supplies. Certified to both industrial and medical international safety standards, and comprising 150, 180, and now 250 W models, the GCS series is available in multiple mechanical formats. Ensuring the range is suitable for multiple applications, the GCS series is available in an industry-standard 3 x 5 inch (127 x 76.2 mm) open-frame package, an enclosed covered version, and top- or end-mounted fan cover options.

The open-frame format allows the GCS250 to deliver up to 180 W by convection cooling, and the full 250 W when provided with only a 7 CFM airflow or when using the optional fan-mounted configurations. With both Class I and Class II input construction techniques used, designers can opt to either use or not use an input earth scheme. These highly-efficient supplies, typically up to 93% efficiency, are available with outputs covering all the popular nominal voltages from +12 to +48 VDC. A secondary 12 VDC/0.6 A fan supply is also a standard feature, with remote on/off being available as an option.

Suiting a wide range of application environments, the GCS250 can operate over the extended temperature range of -40 to +70°C with no derating until +50°C. The supplies operate from a wide input range of 85-264 VAC, with full power available from 90 VAC and higher.

No additional EMC filtering components are required since the GCS series meets Class B conducted and Class A radiated criteria as stipulated by the internationally recognized standards of EN55011 and EN55022. Also, the units comply with the 3rd edition medical safety standards EN60601-1, ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1, CSA22.2 No 60601-1, and the IT equipment safety standard UL/EN 60950-1.

Ideal for use in any ‘1U’ equipment, the GCS250 is suitable for a multitude of applications within the industrial and healthcare markets.
