High Efficiency AC-DC Full-Brick Power Modules

• Up to 91% efficiency
• 5-Year Warranty

PFE-SA series

TDK Corporation introduces the TDK-Lambda PFE-SA series of AC-DC full-brick power modules, which represents a significant upgrade to the popular PFE-S series launched 5 years ago. Like the existing models, the PFE300SA and PFE500SA are fully regulated and have the same main circuit and structure to provide a convenient ac-dc board mounted solution for applications such as industrial, MIL-COTS, datacom and telecom – but with up to 4% efficiency improvement (series maximum efficiency 91%) and a 5-year warranty. The new product series is particularly well-suited for outdoor applications, as well as equipment requiring water-cooling, hermetic sealing, fanless operation and compact design.

The inverter operation good (IOG) functions provide greater flexibility in the diagnostics of the power system. In addition, all models have remote senses.

The PFE300-SA and PFE500SA models are available in 12V, 28V and 48V nominal outputs, all can be adjusted over a ±20% range. The PFE300SA can deliver full power with a baseplate temperature of between -40 and +100°C. The 12V PFE500SA has a maximum base-plate temperature of 85°C, while the 28V and 48V models deliver the same output at temperatures up to 100°C. Line and load regulation is 0.4%, and efficiency exceeds 85% in all versions.

All versions of the PFE-SA series accept a wide AC input from 85V to 265V at 47-63Hz, have active power factor correction and an input to output isolation of 3kV for one minute. In addition, over voltage, over current and over temperature protections are included. The series conforms to EN/UL/CSA 60950-1 safety approvals for general purpose applications and carries the CE mark according to the low voltage (LV) and RoHS Directives.

Year in Industry scheme proves success for Power Supply Manufacturer

• Paid career development work placements organised through the EDT

TDK Corporation is pleased to announce that TDK-Lambda UK’s involvement with the EDT’s (Engineering Development Trust) Year in Industry (YINI) scheme is proving a success for the company.

The EDT organises a range of work-related STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) enrichment activities for 11-21 year olds across the UK. The YINI scheme coordinates paid career development work placements for students completing A-levels/Scottish Highers/equivalent qualifications or as part of a university sandwich year.

Osamah Bayati, studying Computer Networks and Communications at the University of Westminster, School of Electronics & Computer Science, completed his YINI programme with TDK-Lambda UK in July 2013. During his placement Bayati investigated the potential impact of introducing Desktop Virtualisation into the company; this separates the desktop environment and associated application software from the physical client device that is used to access it.

“Desktop Virtualisation could offer potential business benefits in relation with business continuity and disaster recovery, capital cost reductions and a decrease in IT administration overheads,” explains Clive Davies, Manufacturing Engineering & IT Manager, TDK-Lambda.

Bayati considered many factors including the cost of implementation, end-user performance and experience, image management, WAN (Wide Area Network) requirements, monitoring and reporting techniques and training needs.

“To this end Osamah worked with a number of providers to conduct various experiments that involved active TDK-Lambda employees working in a ‘virtualised’ environment,” adds Davies. “This was a very high level project, Osamah’s professional approach to the project and his attention to detail enabled us to fully understand the potential, or not, that Virtualisation can bring to our business.”

Kacper Terebus, who is studying Computer Hardware and Software Engineering at Coventry University, undertakes this year’s YINI placement with TDK-Lambda UK. Based within the Sales & Marketing Department, he is working on a web-based application for the sales team.

“Kacper’s project is proceeding extremely well,” comments Paul Goodwin, Product Manager, TDK-Lambda. “We anticipate that he will complete it ahead of schedule, with more of the requested features implemented at release than were originally planned.”

“I am a strong supporter of the YINI programme,” concludes Phil Scotcher, General Manager, TDK-Lambda. “The placements give us access to talented, dedicated students who can drive the business forward, while we help students develop and build the skills and knowledge for which future employers are looking – it’s also a great way to earn while you learn.”

100W to 600W RWS-B Series of AC-DC Power Supplies

• 10-year+ e-cap lifetime for high reliability
• Global safety approvals support worldwide use
• 5-year warranty

RWS-B

TDK Corporation announces the launch of its new RWS-B Series of enclosed AC-DC single output power supplies. Available in four power levels between 100W and 600W, the TDK-Lambda RWS-B models operate from a universal input of 85 – 265Vac (47 – 63Hz) to meet a wide range of applications, including industrial, test & measurement, broadcast, communications and LED signage. The RWS-B range features a 10 year e-cap lifetime (or greater under typical operating conditions) for high reliability and comes with a 5-year warranty.

The new RWS-B series (RWS100B, RWS150B, RWS300B and RWS600B) offers significant improvements over previous generation products, including up to 5% efficiency gain (the 150W RWS150B-24 model, for instance, achieves a typical efficiency of 89%), and a reduction in size to help ease system integration.

Standard output voltages range from 5 to 48Vdc, delivering currents up to 100A. To accommodate non-standard system voltages, the RWS-B series is user adjustable by
-10/+15% (+10% for 48V models). Regular features include over current and over voltage protection circuitry.

All models offer outstanding thermal performance for cooler operation over their operating temperature range of -10 to +70°C; the RWS100B and RWS150B models are convection cooled, whereas the higher power models incorporate an internal cooling fan.

The TDK-Lambda RWS-B series offers curve B conducted and radiated EMI performance (EN55011/EN55022-B, FCC class B, VCCI-B) and is approved to a wide range of safety standards including UL/ CSA/EN60950-1, UL508 (on certain models) and carries the CE mark, according to the Low Voltage and RoHS2 Directives.
