SynQor Announces its latest Technological Breakthrough in a Full Patient Contact 500W Medical Grade Power Supply

3.5" x 5.25" x 1.63" package achieves a power density of 16.7 Watts per cubic inch at 91% efficiency

Boxborough, MA - August 13th 2008 - SynQor continues its successful entrance into the AC-DC marketplace with the introduction of its latest product designed specifically for Medical Applications. The ACuQor(r) AQ0500M series of off line Power Supplies packs 500W of useable power into just 3.5" x 5.25" x 1.63", which is the World's smallest cardiac care, medical grade AC-DC converter for this power level. SynQor continues to bring to the design of its ACuQor series of AC-DC products the same level of technical innovation that has made it a leader in the DC-DC marketplace, achieving an efficiency level of 91%. Single outputs of 48V, 36V, 24V or 12V are available to facilitate the use of Distributed Power Architectures and battery backup, and to directly drive components such as fans, motors, pumps, lamps and actuators.

The AcuQor family operates over a universal input range of 85-264Vrms and 47-63Hz making it suitable for World-Wide deployment. Through the use of SynQor's "QorCool" thermal conduction techniques, full output power is available when attached to a cold plate whose temperature may not exceed 50°C. A transient power rating of 700W is also possible for up to 15 seconds. Active Power Factor Correction is incorporated to a level >0.98 enabling compliance with IEC/EN61000-3-2. Both Line and Neutral are internally fused.

The AQ0500M series includes versions designed for both BF (direct patient contact) and CF (direct cardiac contact) applications in accordance with UL/EN60601-1. Input Earth Leakage Current and type BF/CF Patient Leakage Current are well below the requirements of the standard at <125uA and 2uA respectively. There is also the option of ordering defibrillation rated models that incorporate the minimum output to protective earth creepage & clearance distances and withstand the defibrillator pulse test guidelines of UL/EN60601-1. Conducted noise emissions are below Level B limits of EN55011/55022, FCC part 15.

A 5V "always on" standby power output, a DC power good signal, AC power good signal, remote enable input, and a fan status output function are standard. An additional 12V standby rail is also available in a Triple Output version soon to be announced. Over current, over voltage and over temperature protection with auto recovery is also built into the unit. The operating temperature range is 0 to +70°C.

An industrial grade version is available for those applications where size, weight, efficiency and reliability are essential.

Sample and production quantities are available immediately with a stock to 10 week lead-time. The 500W ACuQor power supplies are priced at $500 in 500 piece quantities. For additional information, please contact SynQor directly.
