Lambda Offers New Series of Low-Profile, Lightweight Triple-Output Power Supplies

SAN DIEGO, CA (December 18, 2006) - The MTW series of triple-output AC-DC power supplies, designed and manufactured by TDK, is now available from Lambda under the new collaborative TDK-Lambda product brand. The lightweight 15-, 30- and 60-watt supplies are only about an inch high, making them ideal for portable and other equipment where overall size and weight must be minimized.

All three models provide regulated outputs of +5, +12 and -12 volts and can accept a wide range of inputs, from 85 to 265VAC; operating range is 47 to 440Hz. For greater system flexibility, the ±12-volt outputs are isolated from the 5-volt output.

Overcurrent and overvoltage protection are provided with all outputs having a 10-second peak current rating of at least 135% of nominal. This peak ability often eliminates the need for a larger, more costly power supply.

The MTW series is available in three package sizes: 2 x 1 x 5 inches (15-watt model), 2.6 x 1 x 5.5 inches (30-watt), and 3.3 x 1 x 7.3 inches (60-watt), ranging in weight from just 5.3 to 11.6 ounces. A cold start of -20°C is permitted, with normal operation over -10°C to 60°C, derating lineally to 70% load above 50°C.

The new power supplies are RoHS compliant and are approved to UL, CSA and EN60950-1 safety standards. They also conform to FCC-B, EN55011-B and EN55022-B regulations for conducted noise, as well as EN61000-4-2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 11 immunity specifications.

The MTW series is available now, with prices starting at $31.75 each in single-unit quantities. More information can be found on Lambda's Web site,
