XP Power’s AKM36/AKM45/AKM65 desktop AC/DC power supplies are rated at 36 W, 45 W, and 65 W. Aimed at the health-care, ITE, and industrial markets, all versions meet the latest U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) Level VI and EU CoC Tier 2 energy-efficiency requirements while offering 2 × MOPP medical-grade isolation. AC input for all versions is 90 VAC to 260 VAC for worldwide use. Available outputs include 9 V, 12 V, 15 V, 18 V, 24 V, 30 V, 36 V, and 48 V, depending on the version.

The 36-W part is Class II, earth-free construction, while this is an option on the 45-W and 65-W versions. Input connectors are IEC320-C8 “figure-of-eight”–type for Class II parts and IEC320-C14–type when Class I is specified. This connector can be provided with an optional cable restraint for applications when accidental disconnection would be critical. Output connection is via a flying lead with standard jack plug.

These high-reliability parts feature 4-kVac isolation rating, 5,000-m altitude operation, and safety approvals to UL/EN/IEC 60950 for IT equipment and EN/IEC/CSA/ANSI-AAMI ES 60601-1 for medical equipment with two levels of patient protection (2 × MOPP). Applications include portable medical equipment, cosmetic treatment, environmental monitoring, test and measurement, and mobile communications.
