In essence, a rugged power supply is a tough power unit that can resist difficult and severe circumstances. It frequently provides power in locations where the mains supply is erratic or nonexistent.
They are the finest power option for a variety of industries since they are built to tolerate extremes in altitude, temperature, shock, and vibration.
The majority of the demand for robust power supplies is in this sector. Power is necessary for military organisations like the Army or Navy to employ for anything from communications to firing weapons.
Their power supply must be able to resist the environment in which it is situated, which could be anyplace.
It can be necessary for the power source to be heat-, moisture-, and dustproof. In order to prevent damage during transport, it must also be enclosed in a sturdy yet lightweight shell.
High levels of power are needed in industrial factories and manufacturing facilities, sometimes in difficult circumstances.
These areas are normally heated due to the heat produced by the construction equipment, but they can also be humid or dusty, which are all unsuitable for conventional power sources.
The Global Rugged Power Supply market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The SMP350 series of tough AC-DC chassis-mount power supply units, which deliver up to 350W of power and are intended for use in a variety of equipment in industrial, technological, and medical applications, has been introduced by XP Power.
The SMP350 series provides straightforward integration into end equipment, lowering design and manufacturing costs as well as time to market.
It includes built-in fan cooling, screw terminal connections for convenient installation, and low EMI emissions.
The series, which is housed in a 3.6 x 7 x 1.7-inch box, offers power densities up to 13W/in3, making it possible to create a small, highly effective, and low-noise solution.
The series offers versions suitable for use in medical equipment that offer reduced earth leakage current of less than 300 A, and it targets a wide range of applications including automation and process control, broadcast, instrumentation, and the energy and utilities sector. It is also very reasonably priced.
The series includes a variety of variants with 12, 15, 18, 24, 28, 36, and 48V DC outputs and may accept an international input voltage range of 85 to 264V AC.
To suit the great majority of industrial applications, the series has a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70°C and can operate at full power up to +50°C. It also has class-B EMI emissions compliance and remote on/off functionality to ease system operation.
Additional important characteristics are high efficiency, which reduces heat generation and lengthens lifespan; low no-load input power, which lowers standby power consumption; and input to output isolation of 4000V AC with a 2 x MOPP rating.
The SMP350 series has a guarantee and is offered by Digi-Key, element14, Farnell, RS Components, authorised regional distributors, or directly from XP Power.
