During an initial network installation and after any upgrade, it is advised to perform network testing. This can detect hardware or security issues before they have a significant impact and cause downtime. Bottlenecks can also be resolved, resulting in improved data transfer speed.
During the initial development of a new network tester, engineers identified that a 175W power supply with five output voltages was needed: a high current +24V main output, +5V, +/-15V and a 5V standby. Ideally, the power supply should have no minimum load requirements. The alternative would be to use multiple power supplies, which could result in EMI and space problems.
As a preferred supplier, TDK-Lambda was asked for a solution and suggested a standard model from the configurable NV175 series. The NV1-4G5FF-N3 met the requirements, offering AC Fail and DC Good signals, and a remote on/off.
