Artesyn Embedded Technologies' LCM3000 series of AC/DC single-output enclosed power supplies, which can supply up to 3000 W output power with medical and industrial safety approvals. This cost-effective forced-air bulk front-end power supply offers configurable nominal outputs of 12 V, 24 V, 36 V, or 48 V with output adjustability of ±25% and maximum current of 250 A. A standard 5 V/2 A housekeeping output enables OEM standby functions even when the equipment is nominally off.
The LCM3000 series provide for a very wide range of AC/DC embedded power requirement. Featuring high build quality with robust terminal blocks, long life, and typical full-load efficiency of greater than 91%, these units are ideal for use in industrial and medical applications. They are backed by a comprehensive set of industrial and medical safety approvals and certificates.
A sophisticated digital control loop optimizes efficiency across a wide load range. The efficiency of the LCM3000 series is greater than 91% at full load (230 VAC). Power factor correction is implemented internally, offering a typical power factor of 0.99.
Variable-speed smart fans draw on software controls developed by Artesyn Embedded Power to match fan speed to the unit's cooling requirement and load current. Slowing the fan not only saves power but also reduces wear, thus extending its life.
The MTBF of the LCM3000 series is greater than 200,000 hours, and the units carry a manufacturer's warranty of five years.
