500W CompactPCI PSU slims into just 4HP
As well as being the world's narrowest CompactPCI 500W DC power supply, the cPCI500DC from C and D Technologies is also the first CompactPCI PSU to offer built-in IPMI functionality
The new cPCI500DC power supply is housed in a 6U x 4HP package and is aimed at high-availability CompactPCI rack-mount telecommunications systems requiring 500W of continuous power and support for hot-swap, redundant operation. An optional integral I2C board provides IPMI connectivity to a system management (SM) bus and allows monitoring of key status functions such as output voltage and current levels.
Designed to comply with the PICMGT 2.11 R1.0 Power Interface Specification with 47-pin I/O connection, the C and D Technologies cPCI500DC PSU provides the standard PCI output voltages of +3.3, +5, +12 and -12V.
Current sharing on all of the PSU's outputs and remote sense on the positive voltage outputs supports hot-swap performance and N+1 redundant configurations.
The cPCI500DC requires no minimum load and features a wide input voltage range of 36-75V DC that makes it ideal for systems developed for global deployment.
Outputs are individually protected against overloads, short circuits and over temperature conditions and are capable of automatic recovery once the fault condition is rectified.
A fault indication LED warns when output voltages are outside of specification and a 'power-present' LED confirms when input voltage is above the minimum requirement.
Advance warning of over-temperature conditions is provided through a temperature warning output that activates when internal temperatures approach the thermal shutdown limit.
The cPCI500DC PSU is designed for compliance with UL1950/CSA1950 and EN60950 safety standards, will operate up to 70C, and can deliver its full 500W output at temperatures up to 50C.
Available now, the cPCI500DC power supply has a unit price of US$549.00 at OEM quantities.
