600W MicroTCA and 650W CompactPCI lead the way for Gresham at Electronica 2012, Hall B2 Stand 256

September 09, 2012 by Jeff Shepard

At this year's Electronica, Gresham Power Electronics, the Salisbury, UK based MIL and Commercial power conversion specialist, will be demonstrating how their market leading 6U 650W cPCI power supply can effectively replace all other 6U products of lower output power, offering customers the twin benefits of vendor and inventory reduction.

Also making its debut at the show will be a new 600W MicroTCA power supply. The PS-1138 high-power module supports shelves, cubes, MicroTCA enclosures, and other implementations and complies with the PICMG MicroTCA Revision 1.0 specification. The PS-1138 provides functionality for powering, managing and protecting a MicroTCA system that includes up to 12 Advanced Micro-Controllers, 2 MicroTCA carrier hubs and 2 cooling units.

Building on Gresham's extensive MIL experience visitors will be able to see a ruggedised version of Gresham's highly successful 300W, 3U cPCI power supply. Available in 24VDC, 48VDC and universal AC input versions the new power supply range has a conformal coating making it suitable for extreme industrial, MIL/COTS and marine applications. The new ruggedised cPCI power supplies are hot-swap and parallel redundant enabled. Extra-high power density allows up to 40A to be drawn from the +3.3VDC output and 30A from the +5VDC output at 55°C.

The full Gresham Power Electronics product range includes; OEM power supplies for advanced multi-media applications, industrial, communications and broadcast systems. Hot-swap power shelves and products for telecoms, medical, industrial and commercial applications as well as static frequency converters, DC UPS, distributed power systems and DC:AC inverters for Naval Defence systems.
