High density 330W AC/DC power supply achieves up to 90 percent efficiency

September 19, 2012 // By Julien Happich
N2Power has released the XL330-54, a new 330W AC/DC power supply that combines high power density with high efficiency.

The 34.3mm high, open-frame XL330-54 has a 76x135mm footprint, offering a space saving of 32% compared to typical 1U units of similar rating, most of which have a 102x152mm footprint. Its maximum full-load efficiency of 90%, achieved through synchronous rectification, Or-ing MOSFETs and a unique active PFC design, means that the XL330-54 generates 23% less heat than most comparable power supplies, minimizing cooling requirements and increasing system reliability, claims the manufacturer.

The XL330-54 has two primary outputs: 54V/6.1A and 12V/9A, plus a 12V/1A auxiliary output. The 54V output is 2250VDC isolated from the other outputs making it Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) compatible. The design allows active current sharing on the 54V output for up to four power supplies to be operated in parallel. N+1 operation can also be configured.

Other features of the power supplies include universal AC input (90-264VAC) and active inrush current protection of 10.5A at 240VAC, which does not change during operation. The XL330-54 CS is RoHS compliant and meets all major international safety and EMC requirements.
