Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced the LCM3000 series AC/DC single-output enclosed power supplies, which can supply up to 3000W output power with medical and industrial safety approvals. Designed to be a cost-effective forced-air bulk front end power supply, the LCM3000 series offers configurable nominal outputs of 12, 24, 36, or 48V with output adjustability of plus or minus 25% and maximum current of 250amps.
A standard 5V/2A housekeeping output enables OEM standby functions even when the equipment is nominally off.
With standard features including power factor correction, variable speed ‘smart fans’, digital control, a five-year warranty and a typical efficiency of greater than 90%, Artesyn is offering premium functionality at prices that compete with more basic power supplies available in the market.
Cost per watt for the new series can be as low as $0.09/€0.08 in production volumes. The LCM 3000 series measures 11 x 7.0 x 2.5in (approximately 280 x 177.8 x 63.5mm) and offers power density of 15.7W per cubic inch.
Artesyn’s LCM3000 series is suitable for industrial applications such as test and measurement equipment, industrial robotics, laser-carving machines, and factory automation; non-patient contact and non-patient critical medical, dental and laboratory applications; as well as for telecom and datacom equipment. With simple firmware options, the LCM3000 can be used for battery charging and driving LED lights.
