XP Power is launching a series of low profile, baseplate cooled 160W AC-DC power supplies for high performance applications.

The full brick ASB160 series is intended for use in semiconductor manufacturing and industrial technology applications including test and measurement, factory automation and process control, with a focus on solving cooling, air pollution and integration issues.

The complete AC-DC power supplies include an EMC filter, AC fuse and bulk storage capacitor, making them ready for direct-to-PCB installation into an end application where they can operate with a baseplate temperature in the range -40°C to +90°C.

The ASB160 units can operate globally due to the universal input range of 90 to 264VAC and the series offers a total of six single DC output voltages 12, 15, 24, 36, 48 and 54VDC.

The full brick baseplate cooled module measures 2.40 x 4.60 x 0.78in and has efficiency up to 93%, providing some of the highest power density levels currently available in this type of device. As such, the rugged units are suitable for use in sealed enclosures including ATEX approved equipment as the baseplate cooling removes any need for forced air / fan cooling.

The modules also have inbuilt protection mechanisms including over current, over voltage and over temperature. Effective heat removal via the baseplate ensures higher reliability and ease of integration.

The ASB160 series is available from Digi-Key, Distrelec, Farnell, Mouser, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and offers a 3-year warranty.
