The FCS40 and FCS60 combine low unit cost with easy integration into multiple end equipment markets with international agency approvals, high efficiency and low emissions. This is further supported by the wide operating temperature (-25ºC to +70ºC) that allows use in a wide variety of environments. As part of XP Power’s ‘Green Power’ range, the supplies minimise the no load power consumption to less than 0.3W for compliance with the latest environmental legislation. The ability to be convection cooled up to +70ºC with de-rating removes the need for a fan from many systems, saving energy, cost and weight as well as improving system reliability.

The supplies have a single output of either 12, 15, 18, 24, 36 or 48V at efficiencies up to 86%, model dependant. An on-board potentiometer allows the voltage to be trimmed by 10%, optimising the voltage for specific load requirements or voltage drops.

Both the FCS40 and FCS60 carry extensive approvals that ease the task of the designer in obtaining system-level approval for their designs. For medical applications these include IEC/EN/ES60601 offering 2 x Means of Patient Protection (MOPP). The units also include two line input fuses and offer Class II operation, furthering their suitability for medical applications in the home healthcare environment.

For ITE & industrial applications the supplies are approved to IEC60950-1 and IEC/EN/cUL62368-1 as well as meeting the needs of the Low Voltage Directive (LVD). IEC60335-1 approval makes the FCS40 and FCS60 applicable to domestic & household applications.

The FCS40 / FCS60 series are available from Digi-Key, element14, Farnell, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and come with a 3-year warranty.
