Power supplies that resist shock and vibration for uses like underwater vehicles offered by Magna Power

Feb. 21, 2024
Applications include ground-based applications like laser and radar and radars aboard vehicles, geophysics exploration, and containerized drilling.

FLEMINGTON, N.J. – Magna-Power Electronics Inc. in Flemington, N.J., is extending of the company's SLx series power supplies to comply with the RTCA/DO-160G standard for resistance to the effects of shock and vibration.

Applications for these rugged power supplies include ground-based powering lasers and radars aboard mobile vehicles, geophysics exploration in remote areas, skid-mounted or containerized drilling solutions, and aboard ships to power underwater vehicles.

The SLx series features manufacturability upgrades that replace nearly all ribbon connectors with latching Pico-Clasp connectors, which provide additional security through a tabbed release. Upgrades also included integrating daughter assemblies into primary assemblies to reduce the number of mechanical and board interfaces.

RTCA DO-160 testing determines ability to withstand the effects of shock and vibration like that of fixed-wing propeller, fixed-wing turbojet, turbofan, and propfan aircraft and helicopters. The power electronics devices resist the effects of random vibration test curves with an average force of 2.2 Grms.

For elevated altitude applications, the SLx series also comes standard with the capability to disable load-dependent cooling, to force fans to maximum.
