Lambda Extends Vega Modular Supply Series with Higher Power Models

SAN DIEGO, CA (June 22, 2005) - Lambda has expanded its successful Vega series with the introduction of Vega Lite, a cost-effective modular power supply offering up to 900 watts of output power. Vega Lite addresses the growing popularity of modular-style power supplies for many low- to medium-volume applications, ranging from medical to test and measurement.

vega liteLambda's new Vega Lite is available in two models: the Vega 550, rated at 550 watts with an input voltage of 115 volts AC or 700 watts at high line (>150 VAC), and the Vega 750, rated at 750 watts at 115 VAC or 900 watts at high line.

The Vega Lite power supply has no minimum load requirement and offers one to ten wide-range adjustable output voltages from 1.8 to 56 volts and output currents up to 60 amps. The package measures a compact 2.5 x 5 x 10.6 inches and is self cooled with an internal fan.

The inherent versatility of Vega Lite lies in its high degree of configurability. Output module functions include inhibit, module good, remote sense and parallel; typical efficiency is 75% at full load; and the supplies come complete with short-circuit and over-voltage protection.

Lambda's Vega Lite models are CE marked in accordance with the LVD (Low Voltage Directive) and carry a host of environmental and safety agency approvals, including EN55022 Class B, UL60950-1, CSA22.2 No.60950-1, EN60950-1, IEC60950-1, EN61010-1, EN60601-1, and UL3101-1. Standard earth leakage current is 1.5 milliamps, or 300 microamps for medical applications.

Vega Lite power supplies are available now, with prices starting at $390 each for a quad-output configuration in 50-unit quantities. More information can be found on Lambda's Web site,
