XP Power announces the ECE60 series of single-output encapsulated 60 W AC-DC power supplies. Suiting applications that require a slim profile, a high power density, and low no-load power consumption, the ECE60 is available in either PCB-mount, chassis-mounted with screw terminals, or in a DIN-rail-mount configuration. Believed to have the smallest footprint and the highest power density of any 60 W power supply in the industry, the PCB-mounted model measures 3.6 x 1.5 x 1.1 inches (91.4 x 38.1 x 28.0 mm) and has a power density of >10 W per cubic inch.
The range comprises eight models providing all the popular nominal output voltages from +3.3 to +48 VDC. A peak-load capability allows up to 130% of rated output power to be available for up to 30 seconds in order to accommodate a higher start-up current when powering a motor, for example. Using this approach allows an engineer to avoid having to specify a more expensive higher-rated power supply just to provide for an occasional peak-load requirement. Also, with its no-load power consumption of less than < 0.3 W and a high efficiency up to 89%, the ECE60 series also ensures that end products meet the criteria of “Green” energy saving initiatives.
The ECE60 meets EMC specification EN55022 for class B conducted and radiated emissions without the need for any additional filtering components. The supply is able to operate in most environments over a wide range of temperature from –25 to +70°C with no derating until +50°C.
With a Class II construction no earth or ground connection is required.
The ECE60 60 W power supply is the latest addition to the ECE series that already comprises 5, 10, 20, and 40 W models.
