July 04, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Excelsys Technologies Ltd. (Dublin, Ireland) launched its Xgen Series powerKits, which allow system designers immediate development of custom ac-dc power supply solutions. Each kit contains everything needed for system design engineers to configure a custom power supply, including one powerPac front-end chassis and a selection of seven different plug-in "powerMod" dc-output modules. The output modules can be plugged in, removed, and exchanged in minutes, and maintain all worldwide safety agency approvals.

There are six application-specific powerKits offering 600 W/900 W/1,200 W total power, and designed for industrial, commercial, ITE, medical, or high-temperature applications. Each powerKit comes in a rugged metal case with seven output modules offering totally isolated single and dual outputs ranging from 1.5 Vdc to 58 Vdc and up to 50 A. The powerKit offers load regulation of ±0.2% maximum; a Designer’s Manual that defines voltage settings, type of current limiting, current sharing, and output inhibit/enable control; two pairs of parallel links and series links; and power and signal mating connectors.

The powerKits also offer power density at up to 15 W/in³, low profiles for 1U high applications, and high-efficiency operation for improved reliability. Configured supplies measure either 40 mm x 127 mm x 260 mm (six-slot) or 40 mm x 89 mm x 260 mm (four-slot). All products are safety approved and in full production.

Pricing for the 1,200 W Xgen powerKit is $1,100 in single-piece quantities.
