Bel Power Solutions Announces SPSPFE3 Series 18kW HVDC Power Shelf with 240 to 380Vdc Inputs
Power Shelf is Compatible with Open Compute Rack Designs
Santa Clara, CA [August 29, 2018] Bel Power Solutions and Protection, a Bel group company (NASDAQ: BELFA and BELFB) and premier global manufacturer of power management devices, announces the SPSPFE3-07 power shelf, which provides rectification, system management and power distribution from HVDC mains (240/380Vdc) power into a main output of 12 VDC for powering intermediate bus architectures up to 15kW (5+1) in high performance servers, routers and network switches.
Each SPSPFE3-07 shelf can be configured with up to 6X PFE3000-12-069RA or TET3000-12-069RA power supplies, which are both hot swap and redundancy capable, and contain two separate DC inputs (one inlet powers 3 power modules). Featuring full digital controls for improved performance, cooling is managed by a fan controlled by the DSP controller. The shelf is compatible with the Open Compute rack design.
The shelf incorporates system communications via the I2C/PMBus™ protocol, allowing for full monitoring of supplies, controls and programming. Multiple protections such as overtemperature, output overvoltage and output overcurrent are also standard. An always-on +12 V 60 W standby output is provided, as well as a slot for an optional Network Attached Controller, which can be included in the shelf or bought separately. The Network Attached Controller provides monitoring and control functions through a 10/100 MB base Ethernet port and can be connected directly to the data center management network.
