- Conduction cooling makes the product highly suitable for outdoor equipment or compact equipment with high mounting density
February 3, 2016
TDK Corporation announces the successful development of the TDK-Lambda brand of PFE1000FA model AC-DC power module designed for high efficiency and high reliability.
The new product meets various customer needs by providing support for outdoor equipment requiring water-cooled, hermetically sealed, fanless construction or compact equipment with high mounting density for which conduction cooling is most suitable. TDK-Lambda Corporation will start accepting orders for the new product from February 2016, and shipping will begin in March.
The PFE series are power modules that combine a PFHC (Power Factor and Harmonic Correction) front end for stepping up the AC voltage with a DC-DC converter in a single integrated package. The flagship AC-DC power module PFE1000F originally introduced in 2008 now has been further upgraded and released as the PFE1000FA.
The highly efficient design achieved by harnessing sophisticated simulation technology and materials technology results in a maximum efficiency of 90%, which represents a 4% increase over the existing model. The new product further facilitates the thermal design of equipment in which it is used, thereby contributing to the realization of more compact, more efficient, and more reliable systems. Dimensions and electrical specifications are compatible with the existing model (PFE1000F), to allow easy replacement from the old type.
- General industrial equipment including automated devices for industrial and commercial applications, measuring instruments, ICT equipment, etc.
- High efficiency over the entire load range: 90% Max. (PFE1000FA-48)
- Conduction cooling which is highly suitable for compact equipment with high mounting density or outdoor equipment
- External dimensions, mounting dimensions, and electrical specifications compatible with existing product (PFE1000F)
