Valere Power debuted the first high-power ac/dc power rectifier in its X7500 family, the X7500A1, which features a power capacity of up to 8400 W and 150 A in a 2RU form factor. The part features a 48-V output and is made for wireless, enterprise, and broadband network applications.
With higher power, the part's scalability improves, allowing the network to be powered with fewer rectifiers, In addition, the rectifiers can be used in a standalone manner without a controller and power shelf, or they can be integrated into networking systems by OEMs who need high power density.
Valere's high-efficiency zero-voltage switch mode power-conversion technology offers 94% efficiency, resulting in rectifiers that are more than 50% smaller and 35% cooler than competing technologies. The X7500A1 is hot pluggable and features front-panel LED indicators and alarms for ac or dc failures and over-temperature, and an input range of 180 to 264 Vac.
