LONDON Farnell InOne has expanded the range of power supplies it supplies by adding selected product lines from Lincoln-based manufacturer VxI Power to its latest catalogue.
Set up last year by former employees of Bulgin Power Source which had been liquidated, VxI Power designs and manufactures battery-backed PSUs for low to medium power applications, as well as a range of encapsulated AC-DC linear power supplies.
A number of PSUs that were previously in the Farnell InOne catalogue under the Bulgin Power Source banner have now reappeared as VxI Power products, and these are supplemented by two products developed by VxI in the last 12 months.
The products making a reappearance are the Oracle 12V/170W battery-backed switch-mode PSU, which is designed to be used in conjunction with a single backup battery to provide standby power for low power systems, and the EPS series encapsulated AC-DC linear power supplies – a comprehensive range of 1W and 5W PCB-mounting units offering either 120VAC or 230VAC inputs and single, dual or triple outputs.
VxI Power has continued to develop the Oracle range and first addition is the Oracle II-75 series which is available in both 12V and 24V versions. It complies with the performance, environmental, electrical-safety and EMC requirements of the EN54-4 standard for power supplies used in fire detection and alarm systems.
Also recently added is the Oracle II-45, which is a 45W switch-mode PSU that is being used as a battery charger in cost-sensitive fire-panel applications.
