Micro power supplies offer density of 1.40W/cm3

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced the first 2nd gen model of its popular MicroMP (µMP) configurable power supply series, the µMP16. With a higher maximum power output of 1800W, the µMP16 offers a power density of 1.40W/cm3 and efficiency of up to 91%, making it even more cost effective for equipment that has multiple power input requirements.

The power supply case features six slots that users can configure from a wide variety of adjustable power modules, ranging from 0.9 to 60V, enabling nearly limitless output power configurations across up to 12 outputs. With modules connected in series the µMP16 can achieve output voltages up to 360VDC.

The µMP series is already powering equipment such as MRI, CT and PET scanners, microbiology diagnostic systems, test and measurement systems, and industrial equipment such as paper processing machines; the next generation is set to bring a new level of flexibility and functionality to these and many more applications. This next-gen µMP series has been redesigned with greater digital integration for increased reliability and a 36% reduction in fan noise over the 1st gen product.

The µMP series is just one line in Artesyn’s portfolio of configurable power supplies, which are renowned for their outstanding performance and reliability and for being cost effective. Artesyn’s GUI-based control software, which can be downloaded free from Artesyn's website and used with Artesyn’s configurable power supplies, provides users with superior flexibility, including real-time input voltage, current and temperature monitoring to provide at-a-glance performance confirmation.

Designed to ensure high efficiency and reliability even in extreme environmental conditions, the µMP16 is rated for performance at temperatures from -40 to 70°C. It can withstand a shock of more than 50G and meets the MIL-STD-810G specification for vibration. The calculated MTBF is more than 350,000 hours at full load. Conformal coating is also available as an option.

The power supply is fully approved to the third edition of the EN60601-1 and UL ES60601-1 medical safety standards and with 2X Means of Patient Protection (MOPP), it can be used in non-patient contact and non-patient critical equipment.
