Three D0601 modules may be incorporated in a 1U rack shelf to provide 24, 28, 48, 54.5 or 56.2 VDC output with up to 1800 W total output power or 1200 W in N+1 redundant mode. The D0601 has comprehensive protection and alarm features including; over voltage and over current protection, over temperature warning and protection, power fail warning and alarm, remote on/off and load remote sense. D0601 modules feature active load sharing and up to 12 units may be connected for redundant parallel operation.

Other standard features include high efficiency, up to 80%, hot-swap connectivity, low start-up temperature of -30ºC, operating temperature range up to 60ºC, front panel LED status indicators and I²C bus for monitoring voltage, current and temperature by network host systems.
