200W Single Output Full Brick

Advanced Power Conversion PLC
The innovative APC-F201 series employs an integrated planar magnetic design and extensive use of surface mount technology. This allows automated manufacture offering maximum reliability and versatility in a cost effective industry standard “full brick” size package. The 200W DC-DC converter operates in current mode control at a fixed frequency of 300KHz, using a patented power converter topology providing continuous input and output currents with low ripple. The converters will function in parallel with just a single connection. Hot pluggable, the APC-F201 works “democratically” without the need for Master/Slave operation. This provides true N+1 redundancy capability for improved reliability and ease of maintenance. The APC-F201 series offers many unique features, including Thermal Monitoring of Voltage for orderly shutdown of the system in over temperature conditions and remote sensing for automatic compensation of voltage drop. Thermal monitoring of voltage to provide early warning of system fault Hot plug capability Remote Sensing & Remote Shutdown Output short circuit protection Current limit protection Output current monitor voltage Output over voltage protection Thermal protection

FEATURES Standard full brick package (117 x 61.2 x 12.7mm) High power density and low profile Low input & output ripple currents Input transient voltage protection Single connection for parallel operation to provide true N+1 redundancy capability No need for master/slave operation External synchronisation facility
