Gresham Power Electronics, the Salisbury based MIL and commercial power solutions specialist, announces the introduction of a family of high power density compactPCI power supplies for the demanding COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) markets.
The new Gresham cPCI COTS family is an easy to use modular solution designed to function reliably in harsh environments. All models have an operating temperature range of -20 to +60 degC and a wide AC input voltage range from 100 to 240VAC or DC input of 18 to 72VDC (nominal inputs are 24VDC and 48VDC). Depending on the requirements of the application the power supplies may be conformal coated, protected against vibration, have extra EMI filtering, custom enclosures including stainless steel and bespoke cooling systems.
A number of the new Gresham COTS cPCI power supplies are already being evaluated by defence contractors and industrial systems suppliers who require the additional features of these new power supplies to ensure reliable operation in harsh environmental conditions.
Jake Moir, Managing Director of Gresham comments, “The introduction of the new COTS versions of our highly successful compactPCI power supplies opens up new markets to us and provides our customers with very high power density, ruggedised power solutions which may be tailored to suit individual applications. The compactPCI format ensures simple system integration and the ability to provide redundant and N+1 solutions for secure, no-break power. Our existing compactPCI products have proved very successful with commercial system builders and hardware suppliers and we expect the new COTS version to be equally welcome.”
The Gresham Power COTS cPCI family consists of three models, CPCI-DC-3U-200/24-COTS, CPCI-AC-3U-COTS and CPCI-AC-6U-400-COTS, offering AC or DC inputs in 3U and 6U forms at 200 and 400 watts output power. No minimum load is required and an I”C data-bus is available as an option. The existing, field proven, standard cPCI range from Gresham consists of 11 high-grade power supplies including the unique 24VDC input model, offering from 200 to 600 watts of output power. All are certified to international safety and EMC standards.
Gresham Power provides OEM power supplies, hot-swap power shelves and compactPCI products for telecoms, medical, industrial and commercial applications as well as static frequency converters, DC UPS, distributed power systems and DC:AC inverters for Naval defence systems.
