Covering Artesyn’s four configurable power supply families, the MP, iMP®, iVS™ and MicroMP (uMP™) series, the ConfigPro tool starts with a user entering the current or power requirements for up to 21 individual outputs, up to 500 Vdc output and up to 970 amps. The online tool then generates a selection of configured options, which can be further refined and results in a solution that is optimized for cost. It can also recommend further cost-saving alternatives based on similar features and power ratings. The user is provided with a graphical representation of the configured power supply and downloadable PDF summary of the configuration.
Artesyn’s ConfigPro tool uses a powerful solution algorithm that factors in complex variables including dual and triple output modules, and parallel and series solutions. The tool also includes a reverse part lookup to enable designers to quickly find information on parts if they have a configured part number.
Users of Artesyn’s PowerPro tool can create a custom dashboard to configure and monitor their iHP series power systems. It includes powerful features such as remote monitoring, custom alerts, an easy-to-use scripting language, and user management across an entire company. The PowerPro tool also incorporates widget-based graphical script creation that allows users to write their own process control routines. As a web-based application, Artesyn’s PowerPro tool is platform independent and can be used with any operating system and device using a web browser without the need to install drivers.
Artesyn’s iHP series is the industry’s first configurable intelligent high power system with medical and industrial safety approvals. The new modular power system provides accuracy, resolution and stability as either a programmable voltage or current source. It provides up to 24 kW in 3 kW increments and can be configured for up to eight outputs using a wide variety of plug-in modules that address a large range of voltages and currents. Developers can use either an analog or digital interface to their system, supporting standard communications protocols, including CANbus, Ethernet and RS485.
