Chassis Mount Power Supplies

XP Power (Sunnyvale, CA) has announced the VCS series of chassis mount single output AC-DC power supplies aimed at cost sensitive industrial applications. The series comprises 50W, 70W and 100W models and are available with +5, +12, +15, +24 or +48 VDC outputs. A user accessible voltage trim control provides a +/- 10% adjustment of the output voltage allowing for the use of non-standard voltages or to compensate for cable losses. The VCS series accommodates the full universal input range from 90 — 264 VAC without derating, and can provide full output power from -10 degrees C to +50 degrees C without derating, and with derating to +70 degrees C. Start-up is from -20 degrees C.

Flat Panel PC

WinSystems (Arlington, TX) has introduced the PPC3-G-6.5, a 6.5" open frame, color, flat panel PC based on a PC/104-Plus single board computer (SBC) that operates from -20°C to +70°C. It includes a resistive touch screen integrated into an aluminum, corrosion-resistant chassis about 2" thick; the open frame chassis (without a front bezel) permits flexible mounting of the system for OEMs and integrators with content-rich applications. It is suitable for instrumentation, industrial automation, and control applications with tight system integration and minimal space requirements. The outdoor-use, 6.5" diagonal color TFT flat panel display features a resolution of 640 × 480 pixels, and a high luminance of 500 cd/m2(nits) and uses two long-life CCFL lamps that are user-replaceable. The display has a contrast ratio of 600:1, while the screen offers an anti-reflective coating.
