Artesyn Announces Compact, Platinum Efficiency 495 Watt Distributed Power Supply


New Compact, Platinum Efficiency  495 Watt Distributed Power Supply

Artesyn Embedded Technologies today announced a new front-end bulk power supply ds495spe_square_14782155641that provides up to 495 watts in a form factor that is significantly shorter than that of similarly rated earlier-generation power supplies – conserving highly valuable system space.

The DS495SPE extends Artesyn’s DS family of power supplies to now provide a consistent and scalable form/fit/function from 495 W up to 2 kW total output power, designed for deployment in networking, storage and server applications.


C&K Product Flash: Switches for the Off-Highway Market


Touch-sensitive displays are not displacing
the joystick’s central role in vehicle control. Joysticks continue to evolve so operators can do more with less effort. These controls are so
critical that design teams are setting extremely high durability parameters for the performance of buttons and rollers on the handles.

One million life cycles has become the minimum, and companies are looking for redundant contacts and sealing to IP68 ratings. At the same time, many companies are looking for turnkey solutions, potted switches with wiring harnesses.

C&K’s APB pushbutton and K12S keyswitch are a great fit for this market.
