Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity, today introduced one of the industry's lowest cost 600 W ac-dc power supplies, the LCM600Q. Available now priced per unit in production quantities, the LCM600Q maintains Emerson Network Power's high standards of quality and reliability, demonstrated by a MTBF of greater than 500,000 hours under normal operating conditions. A wide array of safety approvals make the LCM600Q ideal for use in a variety of applications in medical markets.
Emerson Network Power's 24 V LCM600Q is rated for 600 W of adjustable output power at 25 A, with an output power density of 7.41 W per cubic inch. Like other power supplies from Emerson Network Power, the LCM600Q delivers market-leading operating efficiency of approximately 88 percent typical at full load. The power supply comes equipped with variable speed "smart" fans supported by integrated controls to enhance reliability and achieve even higher levels of energy efficiency.
The power supply accepts a wide input voltage range of 85 Vac to 264 Vac with no minimum load requirement and is equipped with active Power Factor Correction (PFC) rated at 0.99 typical to minimize input harmonic current distortion. It features active ac inrush controls (limiting inrush current at power-on) to 25 A and is protected against over-voltage conditions up to 145 percent. The power supply can be equipped with an optional 5 V auxiliary output for powering standby circuitry when minimizing unplanned downtime and enhancing serviceability are critical. An ORing FET option is also available.The LCM600Q supports a wide operating temperature range of minus 40 to plus 70 degrees Celsius, providing design flexibility for applications in a variety of demanding environments. It is backed by a best-in-class set of safety approvals. Safety certificates include UL (60950-1, 508/1598/1433, and 60601-1); CSA (60950-1); VDE (60950-1 and 60601-1); China (CCC); and CB Scheme international certification. The power supply meets EMI Class B and EN61000 standards for conducted noise and Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directives.
