High power density, efficiency from 160W AC-DC module, in distribution

August 11, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Luso Electronics has Qualstar’s ‘N2Power’ branded XR160 and XR160RE AC-DC power supplies, for which it claims highest power density in the market at rated 160W power output.

This ultra-compact format is suitable for broadcast, storage and network products with applications in the industrial, gaming and instrumentation markets that require significant power within a very small footprint.


With an overall height of 1.25 inches and 3 x 5 inch (76.2 x 127 mm) footprint, the XR160 has a power density of 8.5 Watts per cubic inch. It is suited for OEMs using an industry standard 1U chassis. Its small form factor is compatible with existing N2Power XL160 units. Achieving up to 91% peak efficiency, the XR160 requires minimal forced air-cooling and its reduced AC load improves economy of operation.


Qualstar also has the XR160RE with additional functionality with remote enable and a 5V standby.
