SynQor Releases 350 W Military Power Factor Correction Modules
MPFC-U-390-QP Boxborough, MA - SynQor, Inc. announces the release of its newest Military PFC module, a power factor correction building block for AC-DC power conversion. When the PFC is used with SynQor's AC line filter, a hold-up capacitor and SynQor's high efficiency DC-DC converters, it draws a nearly perfect sinusoidal current (PF>0.99) from a single phase AC input and provides a complete front-end system that is designed to comply with MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-1399 and MIL-STD-461 (with AC filter).
The MPFC-U-390-QP and MPFC-115-270-QP deliver 350 W of output power in an industry standard quarter-brick package (1.5" x 2.4" x 0.5") while achieving 95 % efficiency at full load. The MPFC-U-390-QP accepts universal input voltage range of 85-264 Vrms with a 390 Vdc output. The MPFC-115-270-QP operates from 85-180 Vrms with 270 Vdc output. Both operate through the 50/60/400/800 Hz frequency ranges, draw an AC current with only 3% THD, have a power enable/disable feature and provide a 10 Vdc auxiliary bias supply.
Offered in a fully encased and ruggedized package, this PFC module can operate from -55 °C to +100 °C baseplate temperature and it is perfectly suited for the harsh environments seen in many Military and Aerospace applications that demand a low profile, extended temperature operation in a small space.
