fleXPower X10 configurable power supply from XP Power

XP Power has announced the latest addition to its fleXPower family of configurable power supplies. The fleXPower X10 promises an 11 percent increase in power using the same size chassis as earlier 900W models. An output power of up to 1000W is available over the full input range of 85-264Vac. At high line, 180-264Vac, a single chassis can provide up to 1200W. By using the double-deck feature of the fleXPower X10, where outputs are paralleled, up to 2400W are available at high line, the company said.

In addition to the 1000W X10 chassis, XP has announced dual-output modules to expand the entire fleXPower series. There are a total of 18 dual-output voltage combinations. Available output voltages are 2-, 3.3-, 5-, 12-, 15- and 24V with outputs currents up to 10A.

The fleXPower X10 provides multiple logic signals including global inhibit, AC OK, DC OK. A separate 5V standby output is provided to supply critical monitoring circuits.

The series has safety approvals, making it suitable for commercial, industrial and medical applications. Commercial and industrial versions meet UL60950 and EN60950. Medical versions meet UL60601-1 and EN60601-1. All versions meet their respective levels for leakage current, isolation and EMC.

The fleXPower family of modular, configurable AC/DC power supplies has been designed to deliver class-leading power density on packages 25 percent smaller by volume than other products in the market. The increased output from the high line input of the fleXPower X10 brings the power density to 6.67W per cubic inch. Operating temperatures are -20C to 70C with derating.

The efficiency of fleXPower units varies with each configuration but is typically 85 percent at full load. Overvoltage protection is fitted to all modules and operates between 115 percent and 130 percent of nominal. Units are fitted with over-temperature protection and all modules are overload and short circuit protected while line and load regulation are better than 0.1 percent and 1 percent, respectively. Maximum ripple and noise are 50mV or one per cent peak-to-peak at 20MHz bandwidth.

Samples are available within two to three days. The fleXPower X10 power supplies are available at $592 for a 1000W unit in 100+ quantities.
