The new PFC FrontEnd from Vicor Corp. (Westcor Division) delivers up to 2.2kW for the company's modules and ViPAC arrays.

"The PFC FrontEnd is the only non-isolated front end module with over 300W output that is only 1RU high," said Jeff Lally, senior product marketing manager. "It also offers unprecedented control and signaling flexibility, supplying AC OK, Power OK, temp failure warning, and four discrete isolated enable/disable lines for block control."

Measuring 6.4-by-7-by-1.72 inches, this AC/DC supply, working from a 85-264Vac input, delivers 1,100W at 375Vdc (115Vac input) or 2,200W (230Vac input) through four (non-isolated) outputs. The supply meets Mil Std 810E for vibration. It also carries worldwide safety agency approvals from CE and TUV.

Prices are as low as 15 cents per watt at 100 pieces. Prototype quantities of new designs are typically delivered in less than 2 weeks.
