Lambda Announces Medically Approved SWS1000L 1000W Power Supply

Lambda has expanded its already hugely successful SWS series of single output AC-DC power supplies with the introduction of medically-approved 1000W units. The new SWS1000L can be supplied with a choice of 5, 12 or 24V output, and has a peak output power of 1224W on the 24V model. Lambda will extend this series soon to offer more output voltage selections between 3.3V and 60V. SWS1000L models have 4kVAC input to output isolation and low leakage current (<300µA) whilst retaining curve B conducted and radiated EMI performance.

Lambda SWS1000L 1000W Power SupplyEach model accepts a continuous input from 85 to 265VAC, making them compatible with global standards. The SWS1000L boasts a wide output voltage adjustment range by trimmer (up to ±20%) to accommodate non-standard system voltages, while external programming enables the unit to be adjusted remotely from 20% to 120% of nominal for most models.

Operating within a temperature range of between -20 and +74ºC and with low temperature start-up capability (100% load start up at -40ºC), it is a reliable choice for systems that experience extremes of temperature, such as outdoor equipment. Meanwhile, the inclusion of a temperature-controlled fan that minimises acoustic noise means that the SWS1000L is equally suited to indoor applications. The power supplies have low fan noise, up to 8dB less than competitive units under typical operating conditions and therefore are ideal for powering medical and laboratory equipment or a vending machine for example.

Important standard features include a 12V 0.1A auxiliary output, fan fail alarm and DC output good signal, as well as active current share for parallel systems. With no ventilation holes on the top or sides of the casing the power supplies can be “zero stacked” with no space required between them. The company has also incorporated an integral Class B EMI filter and protection for over voltage, over current and over temperature conditions.

The series is CE marked and carries UL, CSA, EN60950-1, EN60601-1, UL60601-1 and EN50178 safety approvals and comply to MIL-STD-810F. for vibration and shock.. All models conform to EN55011-B, EN55022-B and FCC-B for conducted and radiated EMI as well as EN61000-4 and EN61000-3-2 Class A, and come with a three-year warranty.

Lambda designs and manufactures power supplies for a wide range of applications including test and measurement, factory automation, process control, medical, communications, computing and COTS (commercial off-the-shelf). Lambda offers a comprehensive range of AC-DC power supplies and DC-DC converters, backed by fully-automated electronic assembly lines coupled with stringent testing procedures.
