Energy-Saving 300W Medical AC-DC with High Power Density

May 07, 2018 by Paul Shepard

The new BEO-3000M ac-dc switching power supply series from Bicker Elektronik was developed for space-saving installation in medical devices and medical computer systems. The 3x5" open frame power supplies are available with precisely-regulated dc single output voltages of 12V, 24V, 36V or 48V, which can be fine tuned in the range of ±5%.

In addition, a 5V standby and a 12V fan output is available. The particularly high quality and robust built medical power supplies for reliable 24/7 continuous operation provide an output power of 250 Watts fanless or 300 Watts with 10 CFM airflow.

With efficiency of up to 94%, a standby power consumption of less than 0.3W and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +70°C, the BEO-3000M series is also convincing in closed systems.

For international use, the medical switching power supplies have a wide-range input (90- to 264-Vac at 47- to 63-Hz) with active PFC power factor correction. With a isolation voltage of 6516Vdc between input and output, the BEO-3000M series complies with the medical safety standard 2xMOPP (Means Of Patient Protection) and has international medical safety approvals: IEC60601-1:2005+A1:2012 (Edition 3.1), EN60601-1:2006+A1:2013 (Edition 3.1), ANSI/AAMI ES60601-1:2005 (3rd Edition).

The BEO-3000M series comes standard with short circuit and over-temperature protection with auto-recovery and over-voltage protection with shutdown, as well as a remote sense function to compensate voltage drops on the output lines to the load.

No base load is required at the outputs, so latest-generation mainboards (Skylake / Kaby Lake / Coffee Lake / Gemini Lake) with their special power-saving modes can be safely supplied. For operation of medical computer systems, the BEO-3000M power supplies also have ATX-compatible PSON and PG / PowerGood signal ports.

In addition to the long-term availability of at least 5 years Bicker Elektronik grants a warranty of 3 years on the power supply series BEO-3000M. In addition, the power supply specialist offers suitable accessories such as the two AC input cables X1-054 (2-pin) and CB-105-3-600 (3-pin), the IEC connector filter PSZ-1019-B1 incl. cable and ferrite as well product specific connection cable set PSZ-1035.
