Big Data and Cloud
A leading provider of high performance computing (HPC) solutions, especially for big data and cloud processing, took advantage of the digital control technology in Artesyn's DS series bulk front-end power supplies when developing their next generation product line.
The DS1600SPE is an ultra-high density power supply providing 35W per cubic inch in just 3.4 x 7.7 inches (86.3 x 196.5 mm) and 1U high. This form factor is significantly shorter than that of similarly rated earlier-generation power supplies — freeing up valuable system space — and is achieved by use of the latest power switching technology and high density component packaging techniques.
The customer had a unique configuration where they needed the power supply to provide a constant current for prolonged periods. Thanks to digital control, Artesyn engineers were able to rapidly modify the power supply behavior, avoid an extensive hardware change and meet the customer’s time-to-market demands.
The customer’s product is now being deployed by a major wireless communications carrier among many other end customers.
Biochemical Blood Tester
Immunoassay or biochemical testing is becoming more automated as hospitals and laboratories deal with increasing demands for blood analysis. Artesyn’s Intelligent VS (iVS) series configurable AC-DC power supply is being used in a next generation immunoassay system from one of the world’s largest providers of healthcare equipment. Their requirement for multiple outputs with some at non-standard voltages and a total power output of 4.5 kW and medical approval is exactly what the iVS series was designed for.
LED Displays Controllers
LED display controllers are often used to drive the massive screens at sporting events, entertainment venues and major cultural events. A leading display control solution provider selected Artesyn’s NPS40-M series open frame power supply for its reliability and cost-effectiveness. Artesyn’s close relationship and outstanding local technical support helped this customer complete their development quickly and capture market share with a new product line.
Commercial Coffee Vending Machine
A cup of freshly-ground coffee from one of the latest commercial machines can awaken your senses. Artesyn has helped a manufacturer of these high quality branded machines to get more fine hot beverages into the hands of customers with a simple modification to a standard power supply. The LPS100-M low power open frame series provided the quality needed and Artesyn’s sales engineers, marketing team and engineers came together to give this customer the flexibility they needed. Enjoy your coffee!
Open Compute Servers
An international original design manufacturer of cloud computing products, services and solutions wanted a high performance power supply for a new category of open compute servers. Leveraging Local Energy Storage (LES) technology developed by Microsoft, Artesyn’s power conversion experts developed a 1600 watt server power supply with ultra-high density and digital control capability with options for LES and non-LES units. Thanks to close collaboration with the customer’s R&D team, the power supply has been successfully deployed in data centers worldwide.
