VPX-compatible 3U VITA 62 power supply for rugged military embedded systems introduced by X-ES

MIDDLETON, Wis., 27 May 2011. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPm2020 conduction-cooled, VITA 62, 3U VPX power supply for rugged, deployed military applications. The power electronics device accepts MIL-STD-704 28-volt DC input power and provides as much as 300 Watts at 3.3, 5, and 12 volts at 90 percent efficiency, X-ES officials say. The XPm2020 uses MIL-STD-461E EMI filtering and on-card hold-up capacitance to provide 75 microseconds of hold-up time. The power supply operates over an input voltage from 16 to 50 volts steady state.

The power electronics device for military embedded systems accepts MIL-STD-704 28-volt DC input power and provides as much as 300 Watts at 3.3, 5, and 12 volts at 90 percent efficiency, X-ES officials say.The XPm2020 uses MIL-STD-461E EMI filtering and on-card hold-up capacitance to provide 75 microseconds of hold-up time. The power supply operates over an input voltage from 16 to 50 volts steady state, while maintaining as much as 300 Watts isolated output power.The power-management device provides as much as 25 amps on 3.3 volts, 22 amps on 5 volts, and 8.3 amps on 12 volts. Two XPm2020 power supplies cold connect in parallel to increase power output.

VITA 62 is compatible with VITA 46 (VPX) and VITA 48 (VPX-REDI). VITA 62 power supplies enable systems designers to use interchangeable power supplies from several different vendors.
