Ultra-compact, high efficiency 160W AC-DC module delivers market leading power density

LO1614(A)N2Power-R160-1Luso Electronics introduces Qualstar’s N2Power branded XR160 and XR160RE AC-DC power supplies. These ultra-small power supplies provide the highest power density in the market at their rated 160W power output. This ultra-compact format is ideal for broadcast, storage and network products with applications in the industrial, gaming and instrumentation markets that require significant power within a very small footprint.

With an overall height of 1.25 inches and 3 x 5 inch (76.2 x 127mm) footprint, the XR160 boasts a power density of 8.5 watts per cubic inch. It is ideally suited for OEMs using an industry standard 1U chassis. Its small form factor is compatible with existing N2Power XL160 units.

Achieving up to 91% peak efficiency, the XR160’s unique design reduces energy consumption and consequently generates less heat. This provides greater reliability and ensures a longer product life. The XR160 Series requires minimal forced air-cooling and its reduced AC load improves economy of operation.

Qualstar also introduces the XR160RE with additional functionality with remote enable and a 5V standby.

N2Power’s XR160 and XR160RE AC-DC power supplies are available for purchase in the UK and Ireland from Luso Electronics and samples are available for evaluation and qualification.
