The newly introduced AC/DC switching power supply BEO-3000MC from Bicker Elektronik, Donauwörth, was designed for space-saving and fanless use in compact medical devices and medical computer systems. Due to its high power density, the power supply unit delivers a continuous output of 300 watt - fanless on a base area of only 88 x 136 mm! At the same time, the particularly energy-efficient power supply is characterized by a high efficiency of up to 94% and a standby power consumption of less than 0.3 watts. The robust and high-quality power supply for 24/7 continuous operation operates reliably in the extended temperature range from -40 °C to + 70 °C.
The medical power supply BEO-3000MC is available with precisely regulated single-DC output voltages of + 12V, + 24V or + 48V each with a setting range of ± 5% of the rated voltage and remote sense function to compensate voltage drops at the output to the consumer. In general, no basic load is necessary at the output, so that, among other things, single-voltage motherboards with special energy-saving modes based on the Haswell / Skylake technology can be easily supplied. In addition to the additional outputs with the auxiliary voltages + 5V standby and + 12V fan, ATX-compatible PSON and PG / PowerGood signal connections are available for the operation of mainboards in medical computer systems.
For international use in demanding medical applications the BEO-3000MC has a wide range input (90 to 264 VAC at 47 to 63 Hz) with active PFC power factor correction as well as the current medical approvals according to the following standards: IEC60601-1 + A1: 2012 Edition 3.1, EN60601-1 + A1: 2013 Edition 3.1 and ANSI / AAMI ES60601-1 + A1: 2012 Edition 3.1. With a high insulation voltage of 6516 VDC between input and output, the power supply corresponds to the medical safety standard 2xMOPP for patient contact (Means Of Patient Protection). The new BEO-3000MC also convinces with a sophisticated circuit design and outstanding EMC characteristics.
The standard integrated protection functions such as short-circuit and overtemperature protection with automatic restart (AutoRecovery) and overvoltage protection with switch-off ensure additional operational safety. In addition to the long-term availability of at least 5 years, Bicker Elektronik grants a warranty of 3 years on the new power supply BEO-3000MC. As a matter of course, the power supply specialist offers matching accessories such as the AC input cable X1-054 (2-pole) and CB-105-3-600 (3-pole), the IEC plug filter PSZ-1019-B1 with cable and ferrite as well as a product-specific connection cable set PSZ-1035. Optionally the open-frame version of the BEO-3000MC without housing and cover, called BEO-3000M, is also available on request.
Particularly in the field of medical technology, apart from the optimal product characteristics of a power supply, the personal on-site consulting of the system developer at the design-in by experienced sales engineers is also of decisive importance. With a strong sales, development and service team, Bicker Elektronik accompanies its customers competently and reliably throughout the product development right up to the start of production. For medical computer systems, customers receive certified and perfectly matched power supply + mainboard bundles plus comprehensive accessories in industrial quality from a single source as part of the Power + Board program. On request, the specialists from Bicker Elektronik realize customized and special solutions as well as comprehensive laboratory and measuring services for complete customer systems.
