The open frame ac/dc power supplies have the purpose of straightening the input voltage (alternating current AC) returning the output voltage (direct current DC), in order to provide electricity for the use of other devices.
The open frame ac/dc power supplies have the detail to be very compact with the possibility to be placed in cabinet and electric circuits, even though all the components are exposed and visible.
Digimax offers a wide range of open frame ac/dc power supplies with power ratings generally ranging from 5 Watt to 500 Watt. Power is an important feature of power supplies, as is stability and precision of output voltage.
The special feature of power frame industrial power supplies are their compactness and wide possibility to integration into various types of system and applications. High efficiency, auxiliary output and possibility of working in I or II class complete the characteristics of this product line.
High efficiency ac/dc open frame and PFC technology
Among the power supplies offered by Digimax it is possible to find some with PFC technology. The PFC acronym (Power Factor Correction) is used to identify a technology used to correct the power factor and the energy dissipation within power supplies.
Therfore, it aims to set up the power decline resulting in increased efficiency, which in the most innovative power supplies can exceed 95%.
The efficiency factor of a power supplies depends on:
- Power supply cooling system (active or passive),
- Power supply power factor: the higher it is, the lower the energy loss.
