Components Bureau, part of the FORTEC Group based in Cambridgeshire, is pleased to announce new addition of 1500W power to the Cosel PCA series extending the range from 300W up to 1500W.
Available in six different output voltages, the PCA series covers the whole range of applications from 5V to 48V and embraces 5, 12, 15, 24, 32 and 48V. All output voltages can be adjusted to near zero volts and operated in constant voltage or constant current mode. Worthy of highlighting, the 5V model trims down to 3V and so covers 3.3V for computing applications, whilst the 48V model trims up to 57.6V covering some of the growing Power over Ethernet (PoE) applications.
The PCA series designed with extended communication I/O for demanding medical and industrial applications has a built-in extended-UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver –Transmitter) interface supporting more than 80 commands to monitor and control the whole range of power supply parameters, a PMBus option is also available.
For flexibility, the PCA1500F includes analogue and digital interfaces - the analogue interface includes current adjustment (ITRM), voltage adjustment (VTRM), remote control ON/OFF, voltage sensing, LED alarms and current monitoring. Operating data can be stored and locked inside the internal memory and recorded error codes can be used for analysis and the recording of operational hours for preventive maintenance.
Complying with stringent medical standards EN/IEC 60601-1, the PCA1500F features a reinforced input to output isolation of 4,000VAC and a grade of 2X Means of Patient Protection (2xMOPP). The PCA series offers a universal input voltage of 85 to 264VAC. Exhibiting flexibility, the output can be operated in constant voltage (CV) or constant current (CC) mode with either analogue or digital control. All PCA series power supplies are built in 1U height housings and utilise COSEL’s high-density, integrated packaging with optimized cooling.
The PCA1500F is rated for operation at temperatures from -20 to +70 degrees C and cooling is achieved by an internal intelligent fan, the speed of which adjusts automatically to match and work alongside environmental conditions. The fan can also be set to maximum (fixed) speed manually via the digital interface.
