Ultra Slim DIN Rail Supplies from XP Power
Ultra-compact DIN rail power supplies.
Sunnyvale, CA — XP Power has introduced its DRS series of DIN-rail-mounted AC/DC power supplies. The supplies, comprising 80, 120 and 240 Watt single output models, offer exceptional efficiency levels of 89 to 92 percent. Believed to be one of the slimmest DIN rail power supplies available on the market, each model of the DRS series is extremely thin. The 80 Watt DRS80 model measures just 1.26 x 4.0 x 4.88-in. (32 x 102 x 124mm), and the 240 Watt DRS240 model measures 2.36 x 4.60 x 4.88-in. (60 x 113 x 124mm). The compact nature of the DRS series yields above average power density for DIN rail units of up to 4.5 Watts per cubic-in.

Unlike some competitive products, the DRS series accommodates the universal input range of 85 — 264VAC without the need for any input range selectors. This makes the series suitable for a wide variety of high line and low line applications.

The power supplies provide the output voltage variants of 12, 24 or 48VDC. The outputs are capable of being adjusted above the nominal voltages. The 12VDC output can be increased up to 15VDC, the 24VDC to 28.5VDC and the 48VDC up to 56VDC. Being able to provide such a wide range of output voltage adjustment allows customers to deploy the same power supply in a variety of different configurations. All models can accommodate a peak load 150 percent of nominal rating for up to a maximum of 4 seconds. This suits applications that need a high startup current or those where short peaks are anticipated. In this way, a lower power rated and less expensive power supply can be specified instead of a higher rated unit.

Capable of operating over a wide range of temperatures from -20, the DRS80 and DRS120 can provide full power output up to +60°C. The DRS240 operates without derating to +50°C. All units operate above these temperatures with derating to +70°C.
