Rectifier Family Offers Power Density of 27W/in3
PowerGate LLC released its Cherokee CAR2500 family of +12V/+48V DC front ends and -54V DC rectifiers that offer 2.5 kW of power in a high density package with a power density of 27W/in3 and an efficiency of 92 percent. An onboard microcontroller allows accurate temperature, current and voltage sensing while supporting interfaces such as I2C, PMBus and Ethernet protocols. The devices operate on high line AC (180V AC ~ 264V AC), and they offer a stand-by voltage of either 3.3V or 5V at 1A. A thermally controlled fan enables -10°C to +70°C operation with a -40°C start-up. Features include hot-swap redundancy, active single-wire current sharing, output voltage programming, current readout, remote ON/OFF and front plate LEDs.
