Power Falcon Electric Offers Pre-Configured NEMA 3R/4 Enclosures with SSG UPSs Falcon Electric, Inc. has released NEMA 3R and 4 enclosures with Falcon’s 1 kVA to 3 kVA SSG-RP series and SSG series 1.5 kVA to 3 kVA wide temperature UPSs. The on-line double-conversion UPSs are UL, cUL and CE-listed to operate between -20°C to 55°C (SSG Industrial series) and -30°C to 65°C (SSG Ultra Wide Temperature series). These systems are typically found in many industries such as oil & gas, communications, power generation, utility and transportation applications. For the oil & gas industry, these enclosures are found at well-head sites, along oil transmission lines and at refineries. Inside the powder-coated enclosure with forced air cooling, the UPS is designed to swing-out 90° so the user can control the UPS via the front panel of the UPS. Users can order an optional front panel that locks or one that simply secures the panel shut. The internal SSG series UPS can be pre-configured to support domestic and global applications, as the SSG is available in both 120 VAC and 230 Vac (220/230/240 VAC) models. In addition, all models feature auto-sensing frequency, matching output and input. For generator applications, the SSG series can be programmed to “fix” the frequency on the output at 50 Hz or 60 Hz, so the fluctuating frequency from an auxiliary generator-set does not affect the UPS’s ability to act as a bridge when transferring to the generator during a power outage. The SSG series includes an RS-232 and USB interface, a cable and a Falcon UPSilon software driver, which can be configured to shut down a number of operating systems. For industrial applications, Falcon offers a dry-contact communications option, a secure IPv4 and IPv6-based SNMP/HTTP option as well as a MODBUS communications option so that if the UPS is on battery, low battery or experiences any internal failure, the network monitoring system will display the UPS condition in the network monitoring system’s main console or graphical user interface (GUI). Power-One’s High Efficiency Power Supply with Integrated Battery Back-Up Circuit Power-One, Inc. has released 450 W and 700 W high efficiency power supply/battery back-up units for use in servers and data centers. The Power-One power supplies, SPAFCBK-02G (450 W) and SPAFCBK-03G (700 W), have been designed based on the Open Compute Project specifications. The power supplies combine a 450 W or 700 W platinum efficiency rated AC-DC power supply with a 48 VDC battery backup circuit, all in one compact design. Both versions are highly efficient (more 94 percent efficiency) and the power supply has been certified to 80-Plus Platinum level efficiency. They operate from a 277 VAC input voltage source that allows the server to be powered directly from one-phase of the high voltage 3-phase input power distribution network. Designing the power supply for 277 VAC per the Open Compute Project specifications eliminates an expensive site transformer, and is critical to the goal of increasing the power efficiency and reducing the overall carbon footprint of the data center. With the power supply designed at better than 94 percent efficiency, less energy is wasted within the server and less energy is consumed in the overall cooling infrastructure. The 24 integrated 48 V battery back-up circuit eliminates the need for inefficient UPS systems and allows for a localized, scalable power back-up infrastructure. Small in Size, Huge in Overcurrent Protection Schurter offers a range of surface mount chip fuses, USF 0402, USF 0603, and USF, USFF USI and UST 1206, and MGA to provide overcurrent protection in dense secondary circuits such as those found in consumer electronics such as battery operated handheld and portable electronic devices, such as laptops, cell phones, GPS systems and many other devices that have demand for increasingly smaller components. The range of fuses is offered with quick, super quick acting and time-lag characteristics. The current ratings in the quick and super quick acting fuses range from 0.05 A to 6.3 A, while the time-lag UST 1206 has current ratings ranging from of 7 A to 25 A. Rated voltage ranges from 32 to125 VAC and 63 to125 VDC. Each fuse series boasts performance characteristics such as low voltage drop and high breaking capacity. A letter marking on each fuse indicates its current rating to ensure tracking of the proper fuse through the production process. The fuses are UL 248-14 approved and carry cURus approval. They also hold a Free of CCC certificate from China. Terminals are either tin or gold-plated copper alloy. The chip fuses come packaged in tapes of 1,000, 5,000 or 15,000 pieces on reels. Schaefer Introduces Rack Mount Configurations For Raptor Series COTS/MOTS Converters Schaefer, Inc. has released 19 inch rack mount configurations for its Raptor series of military power supplies. The Raptor’s construction and high reliability make it a choice for harsh military applications such as shelters, armored vehicles, avionics, naval and open air applications. The Raptor series’ output voltage range can provide DC outputs from 12 VDC to 52.5 VDC or 270 VDC, with power ratings from 1,200 W to 3,360 W. Single and three-phase input ranges span from 88 VAC to 265 VAC. Other input or output voltages are available upon request. The series specifies high efficiency (85 percent nominal) and high power factor correction. The series meets MIL-STD-810C/D/E for operating temperature conditions, vibration, and shock and also meets other MIL-STD461C/462C ratings for EMI, Navy MIL-STD-1399 and aircraft electrical power MIL-STD-704D, and environmental test methods. The Rackmount Raptor’s protection package features input AC circuit breakers, input over/under voltage protection, output current limit, output over voltage protection, low output voltage alarm and thermal protection with auto recovery.
