Powerstax at DSEi 2011

Powerstax, one of Europe’s leading application-rich power solutions specialists, will be displaying their growing range of standard and custom COTs power solutions for MIL and non-tactical applications at this year’s DSEi exhibition.

To be seen for the first time in Europe will be the TVR3001, a 3000W DC-DC power conversion rack that has been developed specifically for harsh environmental conditions. In a highly efficient configuration, each of the three individual modules within the rack contain two of Powerstax’s versatile F501 full brick DC-DC converters, coupled with a two phase boost converter to provide a standalone power solution. The Powerstax TVR3001 is ideal for use in vehicle or remote applications and the system is designed to protect the internal electronics from the ingress of dust.

Other significant developments in vehicle based power systems for communications systems include the Powerstax TVS1001 ruggedised 1000 watt DC-DC power supply which has demonstrated ability to perform under the harshest of conditions with field proven use in military applications. It is one of the few units of its kind that offers step-up or step-down conversion at consistently high efficiency. The electronic circuits are sealed to withstand exposure to the harshest of environments and are cooled with a mechanically isolated field replaceable fan unit. The unit is highly efficient offering a choice of fan speeds dependent on the operating environment. The Powerstax TVS1001 has a wide range DC input voltage, from 11 to 36 volts, making it ideal for vehicle mounted Military and Non-Tactical, fixed and mobile communications and security systems. The unit can be configured over a range of standard output voltages or customised to meet special requirements.

Also on display will be the Powerstax N series of ultra-compact ac-dc, high efficiency open frame power supplies. The 1U high, compact package makes this power supply ideal for applications using industry standard 1U chassis. Output power is from 125 to 375W and all models offer a single main output plus a standby supply. The series includes I2C communication for added functionality and monitoring and N+1 redundancy operation.

Completing the Powerstax product line up for DSEi 2011 will be a wide range of board mounted DC:DC converters offering single, dual and triple outputs from 5 to 500W, pre-regulator modules, switching regulators, hold-up modules and EMC filters.

The Powerstax design and engineering team will design, develop and supply value-added and custom power solutions to meet customer’s needs. Tim Worley, CEO of Powerstax comments;”Our engineers possess a wealth of expertise and experience in the research, development and manufacture of both AC and DC power solutions. We aim to operate as an extension to our customer’s own design team to produce the fastest, most elegant and cost effective power solution.”

Typical applications for Powerstax MIL COTS power solutions include defence, homeland security, avionics, shipboard and ground systems and mobile/vehicle mounted wireless and radar systems, telecomm infrastructure and security systems.

Powerstax, fabricante lider europeo, especializado en soluciones de alimentación estándar orientadas a aplicaciones de altas prestaciones, anuncia el lanzamiento de una serie nueva denominada TVS1001, convertidores dc/dc rugerizados de 1000W.

Hay dos convertidores dc/dc patentados tipo F501 in el corazón de la serie TVS1001, con demostradas prestaciones bajo las condiciones mas adversas, en el campo, en aplicaciones militares. Es una de las pocas unidades que ofrecen conversión reductor y aumentador de voltaje al mismo tiempo, con elevado rendimiento.

La circuitería electrónica esta herméticamente sellada para soportar los entornos de polvo mas duros y están ventilados con un ventilador mecánicamente aislado con capacidad de reemplazo en el campo. Esta unidad es altamente eficiente, permite la selección de la velocidad del ventilador dependiendo del entorno de funcionamiento.

La unidad TVS1001 de Powerstax dispone de un amplio rango de entrada DC, desde 11 hasta 36 voltios, ideal para aplicaciones en equipos de comunicaciones montados sobre vehiculos militares, tanto de tipo móvil o no, así como equipos de seguridad. La unidad puede configurarse para disponer de una serie de tensiones de salida estandar asi como otras tensiones especiales.

Aplicaciones típicas para las soluciones COTS de alimentación de Powerstax incluyen equipos de defensa, fuerzas de seguridad, aviónica, equipos navales y vehículos militares.

Powerstax diseña y produce sistemas de alimentación AC/DC y DC/DC de gran densidad de potencia y alto rendimiento. Son productos concebidos para mercados como la Defensa, Aviónica, Industrial, Medicina, Transmisión de Datos, Telecomunicaciones, Sistemas de Información, Sistemas de Prueba y Control, y Transporte.
