Carlsbad, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 09, 2011
Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today launched the IPM300, a 300 W dual-input power module for AdvancedTCA® (ATCA®) boards. The IPM300 provides board designers with a rugged quarter-brick solution to implementing dual-redundant, hot-swap -48 V inputs with EMI filtering. The new module also includes ORing, inrush control and protection, and power management functionality. When combined with a variety of Emerson Network Power standard dc-dc converters, the IPM300 provides a comprehensive power solution for a wide variety of ATCA, telecom, and server and storage applications.
The Emerson Network Power IPM300 features an input voltage range of -36 V to -75 Vdc, suitable for both -48 Vdc and -60 Vdc power distribution. The module provides 3.3 Vdc and 5.0 Vdc isolated management power for housekeeping functions. In addition to providing the power management features required by PICMG® 3.0 specifications, the IPM300 has an auxiliary boost supply for charging external hold-up capacitors that is programmable from 50 Vdc to 95 Vdc. This enables designers to significantly reduce the external capacitance required to meet hold-up time in case of power feed loss, thereby saving valuable space and cost. A built-in I2C serial bus interface can be used for monitoring and reporting and features programmable alarm thresholds.
At 2.3 in x 1.45 in x 0.58 in (58.4 mm x 36.8 mm x 14.7 mm), the IPM300 features one of the smallest form factors available today. It has an estimated mean time between failures (MTBF) of more than one million hours and offers a wide ambient operating temperature range of minus 40 to plus 85 degrees Celsius, enabling reliable deployment in a variety of demanding environments. It is also fully RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant per EU directive 2002/95/EC, meets basic insulation requirements, and is certified with international safety and performance standards, including EN60950-1 TUV and UL/cUL 60950-1.
Emerson Network Power’s IPM300 is available now and is competitively priced at $64.77 per unit in production quantities. For additional information, visit http://www.powerconversion.com/products/websheet/437/IPM300.
