IEC 62368-1 is the new hazard-based standard that will replace both IEC 60065 (Safety of AV Equipment) and IEC 60950-1 (Safety of Information & Communication Technology Equipment). The standard is expected to be advantageous to manufacturers designing modern electronic equipment and components due to its hazard-based principles, more performance-based requirements (vs. prescriptive) and its ability to better consider innovative designs and constructions.

Power Conversion Technology Ltd has introduced two new models that meet this standard, both the 80 Watt and 130 Watt models are compact using the 2” x 4” footprint and able to be used in 1U applications due to their low profile.

MPE-S080 Series 80 Watt Power Supply


Both the models are IEC / UL / CB 62368-1 approved and feature optional +5Vsb & Remote ON/OFF function, no-load power consumption < 0.5W and are operable at 80°. They meet EMI EN 55032 CISPR 32 & FCC Part 15 and can be used in Class II applications or class I with optional functional ground connected.

Other models approved to the new standard include the highly popular MPI-822H 220W Fanless ATX power supply. Utilising a U channel configuration for excellent thermal conduction, the MPI-822H is designed to be used in 1U applications due to it low profile.
