Emerson Launches Intelligent Power Supply
Intelligent AC-DC power supply.
Carlsbad, CA — Emerson Network Power has added the Intelligent VS (iVS) AC-DC power supply to its line of fully-configurable modular power supplies. Capable of delivering up to 4920 Watts of high-density output (12W/-in.3), the iVS is described as the industry's first fully-programmable and intelligent high-power standard power supply.

The new power supplies are specifically designed for industrial, military and medical instrumentation applications that require high power, reliability and maximum flexibility. Fully modular in design, iVSpower supplies utilize digitally-configurable single- and dual-output power supply modules available in six power ratings. Spanning 210W to 1500W, they support 24 different output choices ranging from 2V to 60V to enable nearly limitless power configurations. All modules are fully interoperable with the company's existing configurable platforms and can be quickly configured to match exact application requirements, enabling greater precision and energy efficiency.

To maximize control flexibility, microcontrollers integrated into the case and modules are paired with the company's highly-intuitive I2C GUI-based control software. The software enables designers to configure and reconfigure voltages, current limits and inhibit/enable settings for individual power supplies while allowing them to conveniently export their final configuration specs for mass application.

In addition to its module configuration capabilities, the control software offers OEMs and end-users powerful real-time voltage, current and temperature monitoring to provide at-a-glance performance confirmation for the entire power supply, including the case and all its constituent modules. All iVS power supplies also have field-upgradable firmware, which extends product lifecycles and offers developers a new dimension of flexibility and interoperability.

The new power supplies are rigorously industrialized to ensure high-reliability in demanding applications and are rated for performance at temperatures ranging from -40 to +70°C. They are also pre-certified to a host of safety specifications, including UL, CSA, VDE, CE and CB certifications, to ensure rapid, cost-effective power provisioning off-the-shelf for today's shrinking design-to-manufacture timelines.
