Fully Integrated PFC Front Ends We put it all together so you don't have to
Designing a front end for powering DC/DC Converter modules doesn't have to a time consuming task. Our Modular Front End(MFE) series enables you to drop a fully integrated front end into your power supply to get you up and running immediately.
Each sealed board-ready module in the MFE Series saves time and potential costs by enabling system engineers to efficiently design-in power-factor corrected power supply systems for telecom front ends, hot-swappable file/application servers, and industrial motor controls. The modules are ideal for all applications where time-to-market and design cost are critical since it simplifies system design. The MFE Series PFC modules require no external components to power DC-DC converters.
Our MFE modules accept a wide range input (850-265 VAC) and are board or chassis mountable. They provide a host of advanced features including Power Factor Correction (PFC), overvoltage and overcurrent protection, an isolated logic supply and complete monitoring signals. Each front end is fully EMI compliant with all commonly used DC/DC converters. They're economical, low profile and require no heatsink. Complete with full safety agency approvals, they are ideal for reliable distributed power architectures in just about any application
The MFE Series is available n 250-,500-, 750- and 1400-Watt ratings. All four models in the series feature integral EMI filtering, hold-up capacitors, integral phase control for inrush limiting, input over-voltage protection, and short circuit protection. Each device meets class B EMO, and comes with complete safety agency approvals including UL and the CE mark. The costs average 25 cents per watt at OEM quantities.
"Our MFE product family puts power supply design back into the hands of the system designer." said Don Mulvey, Vice President of MFE Solutions. "The system designer just needs to add readily available DC-DC converters and the entire power supply system is complete."
The low profile (1.1" - 1.5") modules require no additional heat sinks and operate in temperatures up to 70 degrees centigrade. Complete monitoring signals, over-temperature warnings and shutdown are included.
All manufacturing is performed at MFE's ISO-9001 and MIL-1-45208A-compliant facility and all power supply modules are fully tested using state-of-the-art inspection equipment. The modules are suitable for commercial, international, and military applications.
