TDK GXE600 Power Supply with a Product Life Expectancy of 7 Years

4 weeks ago by Luke James

The GXE600 is a medically certified series of power supplies that offer constant voltage / constant current (CVCC) operation through RS-485 communication.

TDK’s GXE600 is a reliable AC-DC power supply. It is the first convection cooled 600W AC-DC power supply produced by TDK with a digital communication interface, no-fan solution, ultra-high efficiency of 95% at 230VAC of input voltage, and preventative maintenance enabled by status monitoring with serial communication. 

 

GXE600—A Power Supply With 7 Years on the Clock

The GXE600 can be operated without any need for forced air cooling (the “no-fan solution”) which minimizes acoustic noise produced by the AC-DC power supply. Its ability to read back the remaining electrolytic capacitor lifetime and analyze alarm history helps to assist preventative maintenance and troubleshooting, too. It has a life expectancy of seven years, making it a super robust solution for use in a variety of fields.

Thanks to all these features, no cooling fan maintenance is necessary, unlike with conventional 600W power supply products where maintenance is a regular occurrence. Furthermore, the risk of foreign materials entering the product is minimized, and its life is extended with an expectancy of seven years, making it a super robust solution for use in a variety of fields.

The power supply also has digital control and is equipped with serial communication, RS-485. These features facilitate communication between the end-user device and the power supply.
