PRESS RELEASE – October 2004
Middletown, PA, October 2004 – Advanced Conversion Technology, Inc.’s new 9 kW ruggedized Power Processor series meets MIL-STD-461E requirements. This 19″ rack mounted, 4U, modular PFC bulk power supply converts 115 V single or three phase AC input power into a +150 VDC output voltage bus in 1 KW increments. By selecting the appropriate number of 1 KW modules users can economically optimize their system power requirements and provide multiple approaches to implement N+1 redundancy.
This architecture has been developed to provide system users with a method to upgrade their systems when electronic devices, such as computers, become obsolete or need to be upgraded. The +150 VDC bus allows users to insert any device into the system that contains a universal PFC power supply. Additionally, ACT’s Power Processor modules isolate these devices from the AC input power, which virtually eliminates the EMI issues that can occur when new or upgraded devices are inserted into a system.
Each module provides in excess of 70 msec. of holdup time at full output power allowing the system to execute a smooth bus transfer. In many cases this hold up time can eliminate the need for a battery backup system. A variety of additional modules have been developed for this series including a wide selection of DC output voltages and sine & square wave inverters.
