Cost-effective 3000W power supply comes with safety approvals

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced the LCM3000 series AC-DC single-output enclosed power supplies, which can supply up to 3000W output power with medical and industrial safety approvals.

Designed to be a cost-effective forced-air bulk front end power supply, the LCM3000 series offers configurable nominal outputs of 12, 24, 36, or 48 volts with output adjustability of plus or minus 25 percent and maximum current of 250 amps. A standard 5V/2A housekeeping output enables OEM standby functions even when the equipment is nominally off.

The series comes with standard features including power factor correction, variable speed ‘smart fans’, digital control, a five-year warranty and a typical efficiency of greater than 90 percent.

The LCM 3000 series measures 11 x 7.0 x 2.5 inches (approximately 280 x 177.8 x 63.5 mm) and offers power density of 15.7W per cubic inch.

The LCM3000 series is intended for industrial applications such as test and measurement equipment, industrial robotics, laser-carving machines, and factory automation; non-patient contact and non-patient critical medical, dental and laboratory applications; as well as for telecom and data communications equipment.

With simple firmware options, the LCM3000 can be used for battery charging and driving LED lights.
