Power supply applications with output voltages exceeding 60VDC

Posted on 18 Dec 2017
Most commercially available power supplies have output voltages ranging from 3V3 to 54VDC.  However, there are many end applications for power supplies where a higher output voltage is required. Given the lack of availability of standard higher output voltage supplies, it is not unusual for the required system voltage to be generated from multiple standard units in series or by connecting the outputs of a multiple output supply in series.
