Rack cabinet are widely used in industry and public buildings and are the vital center of the technology and IT infrastructure. Within this cabinet are arranged and managed the major hardware components that enable the proper operation of service system, servers and backup systems.
In addition to network equipment such as servers, routers and switches, industrial chassis PCs and high-powered power supplies specially configured to ensure the power supply of the systems with which they are associated can be housed within a rack cabinet.
Rack-mounted power supplies are solutions that are widely used within IT infrastructures and production lines that require high power loads. Rack-mount power supplies aim to reliably and efficiently supply power to various components by converting alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC).
The modularity offered by the rack-mounted standard allows several industrial power supplies and chargers to be used within a single cabinet, thus providing the required amount of current and voltage by connecting two or more power supplies.
The rack-mount power supplies distributed by Digimax offer first-class features; they have programmable voltage and current, PMBus protocol control (CANBus optional), PC control via USB, RS-232 or Ethernet port with the CMU1, and remote control via GSM.
The main features of rack power supplies
The physical structure of rack cabinets has become standard over time: 19" wide and divided into height profiles called units (1U, 2U, 3U...), it is usually sized to accommodate 12 to 48 units, which can be grouped in turn into shelves.
So what are the features to keep in mind when selecting the right Rack Power Supply?
- Combined connection to supply network and uninterruptible power supply;
- Fanless cooling;
- Wide operating temperature range;
- Compliance with international safety standards IEC 60950-1.
