Digitally configurable ac-dc power supplies

Emerson Network Power adds 3-phase models to iVS line of high-power intelligent configurable power supplies.

Carlsbad, Calif. , April 12, 2010—Emerson Network Power has announced the addition of two new 3-phase models to its Intelligent VS (iVS) line of digitally configurable ac-dc power supplies. Rated for up to 4,920W of high-density output power (12W per cubic inch), Emerson Network Power's iVS power supplies are for industrial applications that require reliable high-power output and maximum flexibility.

Emerson Network Power's iVS power supplies use digitally configurable single, dual and triple output power supply modules available in power ratings up to 1,500W. The iVS case can support up to 24 output ratings—from 2V to 60V—to enable a flexible range of power configurations. All modules are interoperable with existing Emerson Network Power iVS power supplies and can be quickly configured to match exact application requirements, enabling greater precision and energy efficiency. The new iVS6 and iVS8 models each support 170 Vac to 264 Vac 3-phase inputs.

The power supplies are designed to ensure high reliability in demanding industrial and medical applications and are rated for performance at temperatures ranging from minus 40 degrees to plus 70 degrees Celsius. To ensure rapid, cost-effective power provisioning for short design-to-manufacture timelines, iVS power supplies are pre-certified to meet a range of safety specifications, including UL, CSA, VDE, CE and CB certification. In addition, all iVS power supplies feature field-upgradable firmware to extend product lifecycles and increase flexibility.

To maximize control flexibility, iVS power supplies are equipped with Emerson Network Power's GUI-based I2C control software. The software enables designers to configure and reconfigure voltages, current limits and inhibit/enable settings for individual power. It also enables users to export final configuration specifications for backup or mass production and offers real-time voltage, current and temperature monitoring for at-a-glance performance confirmation for the entire power supply.
