Powerbox announces advanced marine power supply and platform for immersed computers

Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies and a leading force for four decades in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has announced the launch of its second generation of power supplies dedicated for Marine applications and demanding industrial systems. Responding to a demand from Marine equipment manufacturers to simplify logistics and to reduce energy consumption, the PT578 integrates programed digital protection, built-in redundancy and paralleling circuitry. Based on latest technologies, the 500W PT578 has a typical efficiency of 94% and can be operated between -25 to +70°C. It includes an active PFC, three output protection modes firmware reconfigurable, is designed for convection cooling and is protected against humidity and corrosion with conformal coating and can withstand high shock and vibration levels. The technology developed for the PT578 is suitable for immersed computing systems requiring the power unit to operate safely within neutral fluid containers and part of PRBX Custom Power library.[read more]

Powerbox releases full range of high input voltage DC/DC converters for microgrids and datacenters

Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies and a leading force for four decades in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has announced a new range of high-voltage input DC/DC converters for microgrid, datacenters and industrial applications. Part of its industrial line, the new series of HVDC/DC converters operate with an input voltage range of 180VDC to 425VDC, and deliver output power levels from 150W to 750W. The range of applications powered by high-voltage DC supplies is rapidly expending, and from the latest microgrids and datacenters using high voltage DC (HVDC) bus voltages to reduce power losses through to industrial systems, all of these applications require ready to use, board-mounted power converters. Powerbox’s PQB-PHB-PFB300S series is specially designed for such applications. They are built around a high efficiency topology, have a layout optimized for thermal conduction, an input/output isolation of 3,000VAC minimum and deliver output voltages from 3.3VDC to 48VDC.[read more]
