Communications Audit UK Ltd (CommsAudit), the UK-based manufacturer of high performance RF equipment and systems, has used Unipower’s modules for its solutions.
The power modules selected by CommsAudit were Unipower’s Ranger Series of hot-swappable power supplies which are available in several power output versions capable of providing up to 100A for the 12V model. Ranger modules provide output voltages from 12 to 54.4V. With a height of just 3.5in or 2U and a power density of up to 11W/in³, three Ranger modules can be accommodated in a 19in rack mount system with active load sharing and integral ORing diodes. With a power factor reading of 0.99, Ranger units meet all applicable EMI and ESD standards including Bellcore GR-1089-Core and EN61000-4-2. Each module weighs just 4.6kg (10.15lbs).
Although Unipower’s Ranger modules are fairly “silent”, CommsAudit’s power shelf filters out any remaining conducted and emitted noise resulting in a silent power source that provides the basis of its monitoring and receiving systems.
