Vicor has introduced a new conduction-cooled version of its Westcor MicroPAC power system. In use, fan and forced-air cooling is not required in power systems designed for military, industrial, telecommunications and other applications that need fanless and/or noiseless operation.
The new systems use the company’s VI Chip BCM bus converters and are suited for distributed power architectures, providing up to 1300W of continuous power at up to 92 percent efficiency.
The devices support the universal AC input range (85 – 264Vac) and offer semi-regulated output voltages of 12, 14, 24, 28, 36 and 48 Vdc via four isolated outputs.
These devices respond to a wide range of power requirements and feature optional eco-mode operation settings via which the individual outputs are powered on only as needed, further enhancing overall power efficiency.
