Power Supplies Make Highly Demanding Applications a Reality

Powerbox has announced the release of its Defense Line of ruggedized power solutions for highly demanding environments. The launch includes seven series of new power supplies, comprising three DC/DC (DAA-DAB-DAC), four AC/DC (DBA-DBB-DBC-DBD) and embracing a power range from 50W up to 1,200W.  In metal chassis format with a baseplate for conduction cooling, the DAx and DBx series can be used with a baseplate operating temperature range of -40 up to +100 degrees C. For extremely demanding applications they can be configured with a conformal coating and mechanically ruggedized as well as electrically ruggedizing to withstand harsh transients and demanding EMC performance requirements as required with most common defense, marine, avionics, rugged industrial and railway standards. Designed for high availability, short time-to-market and to meet commercial and military off-the-shelf (COTS/MOTS) business models, the modular build style of the DAx and DBx series allows up to six outputs which can be connected in serial, parallel or used as a standalone output – very versatile products.

Ready to use, Defense Line DC/DC DAA/DAB/DAC power supplies include a very efficient input filter, reverse voltage protection internal diode, input transient protection and an internal fuse to protect against damage in the event of failure. Each output is protected against accidental and permanent short-circuit situations. An internal over-temperature circuit (OTP) protects the units in the case of over-heating, with automatic recovery.
