XP Power announced the launch of the highly efficient single
output AFM series of 48 and 60 Watt external AC-DC power supplies designed for
a wide range of medical equipment. The ranges offer output voltages of 12, 15,
18, and 24 VDC. Offering a typical efficiency of up to 88%, these highly
efficient units meet the latest stringent energy efficiency standards, such as
Energy Star Level V, EISA2007, and CEC2008 in the United
States, and the ErP Directive for Europe.
These standards define the average energy efficiency and the maximum no load
power consumption. The AFM45 has a no load power consumption of less than 0.3
W, and the AFM60 less than 0.5 W.
In addition, the AFM series complies with the
internationally recognized safety approval standards for IT and commercial
equipment IEC60950-1/UL60950-1/EN60950-1. They also comply with the IEC60601-1/UL60601-1/EN60601-1
medical safety standards.
The units offer multiple input cable interface options
allowing designers to specify either IEC320-C14, -C6, or -C8 connectors. The
-C8 option provides a Class II grounding method. An optional cable restraining
clip is also available.
