CHINA - Media OutReach - 15
March 2019 - At the Open
Compute Summit today, Artesyn
Embedded Technologies announced a new series of power
supplies following the Intel® Common
Redundant Power Supply (CRPS) specification, which includes a 2400 watt model,
the highest power available in the industry in this form factor, offering a
market-leading power density of 75 watts per cubic inch (W/in3).
With individual power ratings from
550 W up to 2400 W, Artesyn's new CSU
series provides makers of compute,
networking and storage infrastructure in enterprise IT, cloud and hyperscale
environments with power capacity flexibility. The common form, fit, and
function for all products in the series future-proofs system designs. The
series can address a server manufacturer's range from cost-sensitive entry
level systems to power-hungry, high performance servers with space constraints.
The CSU series is housed in a compact 1U high enclosure measuring just 2.89 x
7.28 inches (73.5 x 185.0 mm), achieved by using the latest power switching
technology and high density component packaging techniques.
The CSU series generates a main
output of 12.2 Vdc for feeding downstream dc-dc converters in systems using
distributed power architectures. A 12 Vdc standby output can be used for power
management or supervisory circuitry. Many of the models in Artesyn's CSU series
are available with options for input and airflow direction, enabling deployment
in environments from enterprises to traditional data centers, -48 Vdc data
centers, and telecom central offices. The DC input option can also be used to
power equipment from battery backup.
Active current sharing helps maximize
cost effectiveness by eliminating the need for additional components when
paralleling multiple power supplies for very high current applications. These
hot-pluggable power supplies support N+1 or N+N redundant architectures, cold
redundancy mode, and system power throttling.
All AC-input models in the family are
certified for 80 PLUS® Platinum level efficiency, peaking at 94%, and offer low
total harmonic current distortion (iTHD) at light loads (EN61000-3-2).
CSU series power supplies can be remotely
set-up, monitored and controlled using Artesyn's universal PMBus™ graphical
user interface, which enables users to
implement sophisticated power management schemes with minimal additional
All models offer overcurrent, overvoltage,
undervoltage, overtemperature and fan fault protection.
Artesyn will be showcasing the CSU series and other power technology
related to the Open Compute Project (OCP) on booth D7 at the San Jose
Convention Center on March 14th and 15th.
