ABSOPULSE Introduces Dual-output Railway AC-DC Power Supplies with Pure Convection CoolingJuly 29, 2020 by Hailey Stewart
This article introduces ABSOPULSE Electronics' PFC 252R-HSA-F3 Series dual-output railway AC-DC power supplies with PFC-input and pure convection cooling.
The PFC 252R-HSA-F3 series dual-output railway AC-DC power supplies with pure convection cooling deliver up to 250W output power. The units employ active power factor correction (PFC) to convert a universal ac-input (95V to 264Vac) to two outputs. Output V1 provides any voltage 12V to 110Vdc/10A to 14A max; output V2 offers any voltage 5V to 24Vdc/8A to 2A. Both outputs are individually regulated, returns are common. Other input/output voltages are available on request. An optional built-in redundancy diode allows for parallel and N+1 operation.
Dual-output, PFC-input railway AC-DC power supplies with pure convection cooling by heatsink fins offer flexible mounting options
The PFC 252R-HSA-F3 AC-DC power supplies are designed for applications where a suitable heatsinking surface is not available and only pure convection cooling is feasible. A heatsink assembly is attached to the under-surface of the F3 power supply module, providing a pure convection cooled solution. Additional cooling is achieved by natural convection through the cooling slots. This enables operation within a -40 to +55°C temperature range for full specification without derating. Wider temperature ranges are available on request.
F3-HSA heatsink assembly, chassis-mount
The heatsink assembly can be mounted to a chassis or DIN-rail. The heatsink is also suitable for mounting on thermally non-conductive surfaces such as wood, plastic and brick walls. Chassis-mounting is recommended for installation on railway rolling stock; DIN-rail mounting is only suitable for trackside applications.
The PFC-input railway AC-DC power supplies comply with EN 61000-3-2 directive for low input harmonic distortion. They meet the requirements of EN 50155 for electronic equipment used on railway rolling stock. They are equipped with heavy filtering on the input and output and comply with EN 50121-3-2. They also meet EN 50121-4, EN 61000-4-2 (ESD), EN 61000-4-3 (RF Immunity), EN 61000-4-4 (Fast Transients), and EN 61000-4-6 (Conducted Immunity). Other electronic protection also includes 4300Vdc input-output isolation, overload protection and output overvoltage protection.
