CAMARILLO, Calif., May 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Power-One, Inc. (Nasdaq:PWER), a leading global manufacturer of renewable energy and energy-efficient power conversion and management solutions, announces the availability of its new i-PWER™ Low Profile Modular (LPM) AC-DC power supply family.

This robust and flexible series offers up to 1500W of power in the form of a six-slot chassis (LPM615 model) or up to 900W of power in a four-slot chassis (LPM409 model). Additional features include: a universal 85-264VAC input range with Power Factor Correction (PFC), one to six fully-isolated outputs depending on model, a low 1U height (1.6"/40mm) and zero-load operation.

The four available output modules can easily be fitted into the four or six-slot chassis, providing customers with their exact voltage and current requirements, thus ensuring a custom solution without the development costs and a rapid, reduced time to market. 

The i-PWER LPM Series also features the highest power density on the market today – at 17.6W/in3, its typical power density is 20% higher than other modular AC-DC power supplies. This class-leading power density, with its low 1U height, means the LPM offers more power in less space, so a customer's product can be smaller, lighter and have less environmental impact.

"The LPM Series is the first of Power-One's new lineup of industrial-focused power supplies, highlighting our ongoing commitment to providing innovative, market-leading technologies for the process control, military, medical, test and measurement markets," Ed Carter, General Manager of Power-One's Industrial and Transportation group noted recently. "With a highly-flexible, rugged design and utilizing first-class materials, the LPM delivers the class-leading power density, increased cost savings and reduced time to market that equivalent modular power supplies cannot match."

Each LPM output module is widely adjustable, offering continuous output coverage in ranges from 2V to 51V (2-5V, 5-15V, 15-32V and 15-51V respectively) – providing end-users with immense flexibility, while allowing distributors to stock fewer parts in greater depth. Modules may be connected in series or parallel for higher voltages or higher currents, while the screw thread and terminal design of the LPM Series ensures the fit-and forget nature of this reliable product.

With its excellent flexibility and many features, coupled with high reliability, the i-PWER LPM Series is ideal for applications in Industrial and Scientific machines.
