94% Efficient 2MOPP 90W External Power Supplies

April 23, 2019 by Scott McMahan

Brightworks Technology, Inc. announced the addition of the new Cortina Series of external power supplies to meet the demanding requirements of industrial and medical applications.

"Today's industrial, test instrumentation, audio/video, and medical applications require higher efficiency, and smaller size as well as adherence to more strict safety requirements for the emerging medical home health market," explained Robert L. Carl, president of Brightworks Technology. "Through our development initiative and opening beta testing to select customers, we will be able to deliver a power solution that meets or exceeds requirements for real-world applications at competitive prices when our Cortina series is launched later this year."

The new Cortina family of isolated ac-dc converters will feature 94 percent efficiency. The family will meets the U.S. Department of Energy's Level VI requirement, EU's Code of Conduct, Type 2, as well as 2 Means of Patient Protection (MOPP) and EMC 4th edition for medical applications.

The compact external adapters will initially be available in four voltages delivering 90W of output power with a universal input of 100Vac to 240Vac. They will feature a precise regulated single-output voltage selection of 12Vac, 19.5Vac, 24Vac, or 48Vac.

The design will also meet IP42 requirements for moisture protection and provide self-protection modes of UVP/OVP, OCP, OTP, and SCP. Low power controllers, thermal management, quality electrolytic capacitors, patented magnetics, and the design layout will contribute to the family's long life and high-reliability design. The power supplies will be in full compliance with IEC/EN62368 and IEC/EN60601 safety requirements.

Brightworks will showcase the Cortina Series during the Del Mar Electronics Manufacturing show at Brightworks' booth #705 May 1-2, 2019.

The company invites designers working on systems with these power requirements to apply to be part of its Cortina Series beta test initiative.
