Powerbox’s medical supply operates at altitude

Powerbox, a leader in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, announced the launch of a new series of power supplies for medical applications requiring BF (Body Floating) class insulation and full, reliable operation up to 5,000 meters altitude to power medical healthcare facilities and equipment. Complying with the latest EMI coexistence standard IEC 60601-1-2: 2014 (4th edition) and specifically designed with patient and operator safety in mind, the OBR04 series delivers an output power of 650W.

The OBR04 is available in 12 different voltages from 12V to 58V with an efficiency rating up to 91%. With a strong focus on ‘no interference and radio coexistence’, the product meets conducted and radiated EN55011 class B without requiring any additional components. Built to ensure patient and operator safety, the OBR04 has an input-to-output isolation of 4,000 VAC (2xMOPP), an input to ground of 1,500 VAC (1xMOPP) and a 1,500 VAC output-to-ground, when many conventional products offer only 500 VDC isolation. In order to guarantee full operation up to an altitude of 5,000 meters, the OBR04 has been designed in respect of required creepage distances and additional isolation barriers.

Powerbox’s OBR04 is available as standard in twelve output voltages; 12, 15, 18, 24, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 48, 57 and 58 VDC, covering a large range of applications from 12 VDC intermediate bus voltages through to point-of-loads up to 58 VDC to power the latest generation of power amplifiers. Depending on the output voltage the maximum output power starts at 600 W and rises to 650 W with a peak power level of up to 720 W. An auxiliary 12 V output is provided for an additional fan, as well as a standby 5 VDC supply at 200 mA.

The OBR04 input voltage spans from 90 VAC to 264 VAC and includes an active PFC, typically 0.98. Exhibiting versatility, the power supply is designed for global operation with an input frequency range of 47 to 63 Hz. The input current at 115 VAC and 60 Hz is 8.4 A (RMS), and 4.2 A (RMS) at 230 VAC 50 Hz. The power supply can be safely operated within a temperature range of -10 to +70 degrees C and stored at -40 up to +85 degrees C.

Housed in an aluminum chassis, the OBR04’s dimensions are 165.8 x 101.6 x 62.5 mm (6.53 x 4.0 x 1.95 inches) and it is available in a ‘U’ shape chassis or an enclosed box with built-in fan. Based on a calculated MTBF per MIL-HDBK-217F, at full load and at 25 degrees C, the OBR04 has an impressive MTBF of 190,000 hours.

Targeting demanding application and low EMI, the OBR04 series meets EN55011, FCC and VCCI Class B conducted and emitted standards. It also complies with safety standards TÜV EN60601-1, UL ES 60601-1, CSA C22.2 No.60601-1 and is RoHS compliant.
