Designing for reliability in high voltage applications

Posted on 28 May 2017
High voltage design and manufacturing comes with an additional set of disciplines that must be applied in order to produce products with excellent long term reliability, often in harsh environments. As high voltage power supplies become increasingly compact and miniaturized, mastering these disciplines is essential to ensure long term and trouble-free operation in the field. Failure to properly apply these design and manufacturing principles can result in real-world MTBF well below design expectations. In school, we were taught that materials were either conductors or insulators. Air was said to be an insulator. However, lightning proves that air is not always an insulator. Welcome to the world of high voltage!

Industry leading 95% efficient 225 Watt AC-DC supply in a 2" x 4" package

Posted on 11 May 2017
The EPL225 series of high efficiency, open frame, AC-DC power supplies are approved for industrial, IT and medical applications. The series comprises seven single-output models that offer a range of standard output voltages from +12 VDC to +48 VDC. A secondary 12 VDC / 0.5 A fan output is provided across the range.
