XP Power has just announced the launch of its highly efficient single output AFM series of 48W and 60W external AC-DC power supplies. The AFM series is designed for a wide range of IT and medical equipment, and offers output voltages of 12, 15, 18 and 24 VDC.

Providing a typical efficiency of up to 88 percent, these units satisfy the latest strict energy efficiency standards such as Energy Star Level V, EISA2007 and CEC2008 in the US as well as the ErP Directive for Europe. These standards outline the average energy efficiency and the maximum no load power consumption. In particular, the AFM45 has a no load power consumption of less than 0.3 W, and the AFM60 less than 0.5 W.

Additionally, the AFM series is compliant with the internationally recognized safety approval standards for IT and commercial equipment IEC60950-1 / UL60950-1 / EN60950-1. They are likewise compliant with the IEC60601-1 / UL60601-1 / EN60601-1 medical safety standards.

These units provide multiple input cable interface selections enabling designers to specify either IEC320-C14, -C6 or CC8 connectors. The CC8 option provides a Class II grounding method. Another optional cable restraining clip is also available.

XP Power is an Energy Star partner and has an approved certification facility which permits in-house testing for compliance to the energy efficiency standards. Meanwhile, XP Power also offers a number of useful resources and information on their web site. Moreover, XP Power applications and support staff can assist customers in understanding the various "green" initiatives.

Availability: The AFM series is currently available from Farnell or direct from XP Power, having a 3-year warranty.
