VCT60 series

XP Power has introduced the VCT60 series of 60 Watt, single output AC/DC power supplies, the first of its new V-Brand range of low cost power supplies.

Fitting into a standard 1U space, measuring 2 x 4 x 0.95 inches (50.8 x 101 x 24.1 mm), the units are ideal for designers requiring an economical power supply that can fit into an industry standard 2 x 4" footprint.

The first product in the family, the 60 Watt open-frame VCT series, comprises 10 single output models that provide popular nominal output voltages from +5 to + 30 VDC. Having a no-load power consumption less than 0.5 Watt, using the VCT60 helps compliance with internationally recognised energy saving initiatives.

Commenting on the new range, Steve Head, Marketing Director, said "Our launch of the V-Brand range will enable us to address many new markets where reliability and performance are still critically important but the large volumes involved demand a lower cost product. Such applications include alarm systems, door entry systems, point of sale equipment, vending machines, networking equipment and lower-tier consumer applications,"

The VCT60 can deliver 125% of rated power for up to 30 seconds. Designers need not specify a higher rated unit when additional power is only needed for short periods. This saves space and cost.

Operating from –10°C to 70°C, the convection cooled VCT60 series can provide full output power up to 50°C. No additional heatsinking or forced airflow is required; again saving space and the cost of extra cooling components.

The units comply with the EN55022, level B standard for both conducted and radiated emissions without the need for additional filtering components. Overvoltage, overload and short-circuit protection features are included as standard across the whole range.

The VCT60 is priced at Rs.1,044.10 ($21.00) each for OEM quantities.
