Gresham Power Electronics, the Salisbury based Defence and Commercial power conversion specialist, announces the availability of its UK designed BL series of 200 W pluggable, hot-swap, modular power supplies.
Developed to provide a fast response, pre-approved power solution for customers assembling instrumentation, test and measurement systems or industrial control applications the new BL series offers a simple, cost effective replacement to CompactPCI and similar "high overhead" power solutions.
The high efficiency universal input voltage BL Series features power factor correction and is housed in a 3U high, 10HP wide, 160 mm deep 19-in. rack mountable cassette enclosure with a rear mounted multi-pin bus connector. The BL series offers hot-swap interchange and is intended to be connected in N+1 redundant configuration for high integrity systems.
A key feature of the Gresham Power BL series is its flexibility. The enclosure is designed to accept a wide range of standard form-factor power supplies to provide bespoke power solutions on short lead-times and with very low non-recurring engineering costs (NRE). The BL series features over voltage and over current protection, an auxiliary output for cooling fan use and LED indicators for power on and power good. RoHS compliant the BL Series has full international safety agency approvals.
The BL Series is suitable for a wide range of commercial and scientific instrumentation and test applications and military COTS projects. The 12 V BL175-112 will be followed by introductions of 3.3, 5, 24 and 48 VDC versions.
