External Power Supplies Meet Energy Efficiency Standards
XP Power launches the AEF and AFM series of external AC/DC power supply units. Designed for a wide range of IT and portable medical equipment, the units provide single outputs with power output between 100-150 Watts. These highly efficient units, up to 94% for the AEF series, comply with the latest energy efficiency standards, such as Energy Star Level V, EISA2007 and CEC2008 in the United States and the ErP Directive across Europe. These standards stipulate limits for average energy efficiency and the maximum no load power consumption, which is less than 0.5 Watts for both the AEF and AFM. By using one of these new units, manufacturers of end systems will be able to ensure that their product meets the internationally recognized energy efficiency standards.
The AEF range offers 100, 120, and 150 W models with a single output covering the nominal voltages of 12, 19, 24, or 48 VDC and is available with either Class I or Class II construction. The AEF 150 W model also offers a 36 VDC output. The range meets the UL60950-1/EN60950-1 safety specifications for IT, commercial, and industrial equipment.
The AFM range is rated up to 120 Watts and provides a 12, 15, 18, 24, or 48 VDC output. In addition to meeting the UL60950-1/EN60950-1 safety approvals, the units also comply with the UL60601-1/EN60601-1 medical safety standards.
Both ranges meet UL55022/EN55022, Class B for conducted and radiated emissions.
