Magnetek Unveils High Power-Density Front-End Converter

Magnetek, Inc. introduced a high power-density “front-end” power supply available for energy-intensive applications. The company’s new HPD-800™ converter packs 800W of 12V dc power into a package 9.84 inches long by 2.36 inches wide by 1.65 inches deep, equating to over 20W per cubic inch.

Such high power density is impressive in front-end power supplies. In addition, the HPD-800 provides power conversion efficiency in excess of 90% under full load at 230V ac input, minimizing energy consumption as well as system size in broadband, data storage and other power-hungry installations.

Integral air cooling enables HPD-800 converters to operate reliably in ambient temperatures up to 50°C over a wide ac input range (85 to 264V), delivering 67 amps of 12V dc output in distributed power architecture systems. Operating singly or in parallel, their ultra-compact “1U” form factor and “hot plug” ability facilitate “hot swap” system design flexibility, while I2C (or optional RS485) communications afford completely automatic remote system monitoring and control.
