XP Power announced the HCP series of single output compact bulk power ac-dc power supplies aimed at process control, factory automation and manufacturing equipment applications. These highly efficient units, typically up to 91%, comprise four output power models, a 650W and 1kW, which are both less than 1U high, and a 1.5 and 3kW. A single wire current share capability allows the configuration of multiple units to achieve a higher power output or to provide redundancy. All the popular nominal output voltages from + 12 to +48Vdc are available across the range. To accommodate an even wider range of output voltage requirements, an output voltage trim capability allows adjustment of 30 – 105% of nominal output voltage.
A similar function provides adjustment of current output between 40 – 105% of maximum current. Both controls can be made by using either an external voltage input or by a variable resistor. A +5 VDC 0.5A standby supply can be used to drive logic or control circuits without the need to design-in an additional voltage source or step down converters.
These fan cooled units are ideal for customers looking for a compact high efficiency power supply that has programmable features and monitoring signals. By varying the cooling fan speed depending on the output load fan noise is kept to a minimum. Monitor and control signals include DC OK, remote sense and remote on/off. A multifunction LED indicator gives a visual indication of the power supply’s operational condition.
The HCP series are available from stock. Pricing ranges from $273.00 for the HCP650, to $936.00 for the HCP3000 when placing 500 unit orders.
