The CoolX600 Series from Excelsys Technology in Cork, Ireland, is the only fanless modular power supply on the market and the 1U supply measures 21.5 x 11.4cm (8.5 x 4.5in). It provides system designers best in class efficiency and reliability in addition to a five year warranty that ensures quality, reliability and the lowest total cost of ownership.

The 600W output uses natural convection cooling with no fan or airflow required and is built without extic devices or materials, providing system reliability that is typically 25% higher than other supplies as well as conversion efficiencies of up to 94%.  The supply includes input surge protection of 4KV Line to PE for operation in harsh environments, reverse energy protection without the use of external blocking diodes as well as safety certified operation at altitudes of up to 5000m. A 24W, medically isolated, auxiliary supply is available as a standard feature, offering effectively another output for system intelligence, control and displays. There is also the option for Digital Communications.

The CX06S is available with full safety certifications to IEC60950 2nd edition for industrial applications whereas the CX06M carries IEC60601-1 3rd edition & IEC60601-1-2 4th edition (EMC) for medical applications. Stand-out medical features include BF rating (Body Floating), dual fusing, 2 x MOPP, <300uA leakage current. Other features include 4KV input surge immunity and the ability to withstand input voltages of up to 300VAC making it ideal for use in remote locations and those subject to input voltage disturbances.

The CoolX600 can be populated with up to 4 CoolMods, providing up to 4 isolated DC outputs ranging from 2.5V to 58.0V. The CoolX Platform offers maximum flexibility with analogue and digital control. In addition, outputs can be configured to the required set point voltages and connected in parallel/series for higher output current/voltages. CoolPacs can be paralleled for higher power and N+1 Redundancy applications. The CoolX platform is completely user-field-configurable so customers can configure and reconfigure without voiding warranty or affecting safety. Mounting options include base, side and DIN Rail alternatives.

“As the originator of the compact, user configurable power supply Excelsys has once more moved ahead of the competition with the new 600 watt CoolX600,” said Dermot Flynn, Sales Director of Excelsys Technologies. “This revolutionary design raises the bar by designing out forced air cooling and, at a stroke, increasing reliability while eliminating noise. These market leading features make CoolX600 the ideal solution for medical, industrial and defence electronics markets”. 

Typical applications include clinical diagnostic equipment, medical lasers, dialysis equipment, radiological imaging, surgical robotics and clinical chemistry. Industrial applications included test and measurement, industrial machines, automation equipment, printing, telecommunications and audio equipment. With a feature set designed for high reliability harsh environment electronics, other application includes naval and ground based radar, communications, test and measurement.

CoolX600 products have the following safety agency certifications; Medical; EN60601 3rd Edition and 4th Edition compliance, 2 MOPP, Dual Fused and BF rating. For industrial applications; EN60950, EN62386-1, ISO9000, SEMI F47 and for Defence and Aerospace; MIL810G and MIL461 certified and CE101/102.
