The EPM-FPS-50 module from VersaLogic Corp. (Eugene, OR) is an effective method for supplying power to PC/104-type systems, including PC/104, PC/104-Plus, EBX, and EPIC platforms. The AC/DC switching power supply operates from clean or noisy power inputs between 8 and 40 Volts AC or DC. This allows the use of inexpensive Class 2 power wiring in many applications. With a conservative 50 watt continuous power output rating, the rugged design is ideal for high reliability embedded applications in transportation, medical, defense, autonomous robotics, and portable instrumentation.

ImageThe RoHS-compliant power supply module is engineered for maximum power efficiency and optimum thermal management with features including extended temperature design (-40° to +85°C) for operation in harsh environments, and power inputs that are protected against polarity reversal. The battery backup option provides seamless switching to battery power with intelligent shutdown capabilities in the event of unexpected power interruption.
