ELECTRONICS: TDK Lambda has released a new range of ac-dc external power supplies with models rated from 100 to 150W that meet the EISA, CEC and Energy Star EPS Version 2.0, Efficiency Level V standards. The DT100-C and DT150-C series feature active PFC (meets EN61000-3-2) and operate from a universal ac input of 90 to 264V ac (47-63Hz). Available output voltages include 12, 16, 19, 24, 36 and 48V.
These external power supplies are packaged in an insulated compact and lightweight enclosure measuring 3.35 inch wide by 6.7 inch long by only 1.73 inch high and are convection cooled (no fans needed). The operating temperature range is 0 to 40C with no derating required. All models are fully isolated (3kV ac, input to output) and meet the Energy Star 2.0 and the California Energy Commission (CEC) Level V efficiency standards.
These units include overvoltage and short-circuit protections and off/no-load standby power consumption of less than 0.50W as required by Energy Star 2.0 and other green energy initiatives. In addition, these series include UL/EN/IEC60950-1 international safety agency certifications and meet EN55022-B and FCC Class B conducted and radiated EMI standards.
These external power supplies feature a recessed IEC320-C14 ac input receptacle and a 3.4 ft-long output cable with a molded 4-pin connector. Other output connector types can be special ordered. These 100-150W supplies are ideal for powering desktop devices, instrumentation, industrial devices and a wide range of other general-purpose applications.
