GCU500 Series AC-DC Power Supplies

XP Power's tiny 500 W PSU meets the latest medical and IT standards

Image of XP Power's GCU500 Series AC-DC Power Supplies XP Power's GCU500 series 500 W AC-DC power supplies with features including a small size (83.8 mm x 165.1 mm x 39.3 mm). Conveniently fitting into 1U systems, these rugged products are ideal for high reliability but cost-sensitive industrial applications such as robotics and renewable energy. Dual fusing, low leakage current, and input/output isolation of 2x MOPPs (Means of Patient Protection) allow use in critical medical applications such as ventilators and medical carts in hospital environments. The products meet the latest 'third edition' of medical standard IEC 60601-1 including risk management.

Unlike many competing products, the GCU500 series is rated for safety at high altitudes: 4000 m for medical and 5000 m for IT.

The latest resonant conversion and synchronous rectification techniques result in very high efficiency, up to 93%, giving low running cost, reduced operating temperature, extended lifetime, and energy savings.

Mechanical form factor is a U-channel weighing just 748 grams maximum with screw terminal connections for the main output. Input connections are Molex type or screw terminals when the optional fan is fitted.

Operating temperature range is -40°C to +70°C with full power available up to +50°C. The input voltage range from 80 VAC to 264 VAC is truly universal with full output power maintained down to 90 VAC with just a 20% reduction at 80 VAC. A useful 250 W is available without fan cooling. The products provide a single main output of 12 VDC, 15 VDC, 18 VDC, 24 VDC, 36 VDC, or 48 VDC with convenient 5 V standby and 12 V fan supplies, and feature remote on/off and power fail signaling as standard.

The latest EMC standards are met for both industrial and medical applications, including the stringent class B level for conducted emissions to EN55011/32, and medical 4th edition.

Internal protection features include overvoltage for the main output with short circuit and overload for all outputs and an overall overtemperature limit. These compact, low-cost, full-featured power supplies ease end equipment integration helping users improve their competitive advantage and time to market.
