Smallest 400 Watt convection cooled power supply for medical and industrial applications

Posted on 04-Oct-2016 11:32:00

The CCL400 series of highly efficient convection cooled 400 Watt AC-DC power supplies have a typical efficiency up to 94% and a flat efficiency curve over virtually the entire load range & does not require any forced air cooling. With little heat generated due to the high efficiency, the components within the CCL400 run at lower temperatures, leading to increased reliability and service life.

Cooling Power Supplies

Posted on 13-Aug-2015 09:26:06

Power supplies generate waste heat which has to be dissipated. They typically have either convection cooled or forced cooled ratings or, in some cases, both. Forced cooled power supplies may incorporate a cooling fan, or may specify the user cooling required to operate the unit at maximum load and ambient temperature.
