Online power supply configurator supplants custom solutions

September 23, 2015 // By Julien Happich
Artesyn Embedded Technologies has released its ConfigPro online power supply configurator to help its customers find the optimal solution from the three million plus combinations enabled by its range of configurable power supplies.

The tool will make it easier for industrial and medical equipment designers to specify and use configurable power supplies and can, in many cases, eliminate the need for expensive custom solutions. Covering the company's four configurable power supply families, the MP, iMP, iVS and MicroMP (uMP) series, the ConfigPro tool starts with a user entering the current or power requirements for up to 21 individual outputs, up to 500 Vdc output and up to 970 amps.

The online tool then generates a selection of configured options, which can be further refined and results in a solution that is optimized for cost. It can also recommend further cost-saving alternatives based on similar feature and power ratings. The user is provided with a graphical representation of the configured power supply and downloadable PDF summary of the configuration.

ConfigPro uses a solution algorithm that factors in complex variables including dual and triple output modules, and parallel and series solutions. It also includes a reverse part lookup to enable designers to quickly find information on parts if they have a configured part number.
