Hot-swap modular 200W power supplies

December 06, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Gresham Power's BL series of 200W pluggable, hot-swap, modular power supplies is designed as a fast response, pre-approved power solution for users assembling instrumentation, test and measurement systems or industrial control applications.

The high efficiency universal input voltage BL Series includes power factor correction and is housed in a 3U high, 10HP wide, 160mm 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.

Gresham comments that it has been active in the CompactPCI power supply market and is finding a growing number of requirements for lower cost, reduced intelligence power solutions for instrumentation.

The Power BL series offers flexibility; the enclosure is designed to accept a wide range of standard form-factor power supplies to provide custom 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 12V BL175-112 will be followed by introductions of 3.3,5,24 and 48VDC versions.
