Releases a 325 W Isolated Power Factor Correction Module

June 06, 2017

Boxborough, MA – SynQor, Inc. announces the release of the newest addition to its family of military-grade Power Factor Correction Modules: the MPFIC series. This module is a high efficiency AC-DC converter that operates from a universal single-phase AC input and generates an isolated output in a half brick package (2.4" x 2.5" x 0.5"). Used in conjunction with a hold-up capacitor, and SynQor's MCOTS AC line filter, the MPFICQor will draw a nearly perfect sinusoidal current (PF>0.99) from its AC input. This provides the design engineer with the building blocks for a complete front-end system that is designed to meet MIL STD 704, MIL STD 461 (A-F), MIL STD 1399 and MIL STD 810G.

The MPFIC delivers 325 W of continuous output power, achieves 92% efficiency at full load (230Vrms) and accepts an AC input voltage range of 85-264Vrms (47-63Hz/360-800Hz). There are four versions of the MPFIC, each available with a single DC output voltage: 12V, 24V, 28V, and 48V. Multiple units can be used in parallel for higher power applications, which is accomplished by a passive droop sharing method. The modules have a fixed switching frequency that provides for predictable EMI performance. Additional features include an internal inrush current limit, auxiliary 10V bias supply, AC Power Good Signal, short circuit protection, input under/over-voltage protection, over-voltage protection and thermal shutdown. The module can operate at full power with a baseplate temperature ranging from 55 °C to +100 °C, and is perfectly suited for the harsh environments seen in many Military/Aerospace applications, especially those working to meet SWaP C2 requirements.
