15W AC-DCs for Powering the Industrial Internet of Things

November 05, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Ideal Power announced another innovative design through their alliance with global innovators, P-DUKE. The 43TAC15USxxy-zz open-frame 15W ac-dc power supplies have been specifically developed for industrial applications, including industry 4.0. The series is well-suited to industrial applications, which are now abundant with connected infrastructure; using smart machines and intelligent communication systems.

These expose factories, production centers and field based industrial, agricultural and forestry vehicles to in-depth analysis and diagnostics for greater efficiency and performance.

The 43TAC15USxxy-zz series provides a reliable power solution in applications where harsh conditions are a concern; featuring an MTBF (MIL-HDBK-217F at full load) of over 3,000,000 hours and meeting environmental standards IEC 60068-2-27 & 60068-2-6 (shock and vibration performance). The module is also available with a choice of either Class I or Class II protection, as required, and includes over voltage, over load and short circuit protection.

In addition, the series offers impressive EMI performance, meeting EN 55011, EN 55032 (Class B), FCC Part 15 and achieving electrostatic discharge, radiated immunity, fast transient, surge conducted immunity, power frequency magnetic field and damped oscillatory wave performance criteria A - making this module especially desirable in environments where electromagnetic interference concerns are a high priority.

Though robust, the series boasts a compact design starting at just 1.5 x 1 x 0.8" (38.1 x 25.4 x 20.2mm) with versatile components, such as premium aluminum capped electrolytic capacitors offering striking thermal tolerance and extended lifecycles, together with low impedance rates that contribute to the modules overall efficiency.

It is through the use of these premium components that the unit's impressive performance features can be achieved. Such as the reinforced isolation voltage of 3kVac, low leakage current of 75µA, a 5000m operating altitude, operating temperatures of between -40ºC to 70ºC (-40ºC to 100ºC with derating) and efficiency ratings of up to 89% with low standby power consumption.

The ac-dc power supply meets IEC/EN/UL 60950-1, the new IEC/EN/UL 62368-1 safety standard and CE, FCC. CB cURus approvals. As well as being available with a range of output voltages from 3.3Vdc to 53Vdc, there is a choice of JST, Molex, terminal block (2.61 x 1 x 0.62"/66.2 x 25.4 x 15.7 mm) or pin (1.5 x 1 x 0.8"/38.1 x 25.4 x 20.2mm) connectors.
