These power units support the power payloads of sensing domains for radar, communications, electronic warfare, and electro-optical defense equipment.

MURPHY, N.C. – Aegis Power Systems Inc. in Murphy, N.C. is introducing the rugged VPX1PH3UC310-SA single-phase power supply module developed in alignment with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) technical standard for use in interoperable systems for sensor management.

These units support the power payloads of sensing domains for radar, communications, electronic warfare (EW), and electro-optical defense equipment.

The 85-to-264-volt AC input to 28-volt DC output slide-in power supply power supply module offers 310 Watts and EMI filtering, and achieves efficiency AC-DC conversion with .99 power factor correction in a conduction cooled module with 12-volt and 3.3-volt AUX outputs in alignment with the SOSATM technical standards.

Users with increasing battlefield demands for C5ISR and embedded computing equipment can make use of advanced power converter features such as built-in EMI filtering, alignment keys for using several units in one chassis, I2C monitoring and IPMC redundancy, and wide operating temperature range.
