S1U-3X : 19-Inch Powershelf Simplifies Design and Helps Shorten Time-to-Market
  • 1200W (110VAC), 1600W and 2000W(220VAC)
  • 48V main output with 3.3V, 5V or 12V standby
  • 1U enclosure with integrated fans
  • High power density
  • 90.6% efficiency
  • Optional 1U 19in. Powershelf
Murata Power Solutions has introduced a new powershelf that is designed to accommodate up to three of the company's D1U AC/DC front-end power supplies in parallel. The S1U-3X alleviates the need for designers to develop a custom chassis to accommodate multiple power supply modules. Using the S1U-3X helps simplify system design, reduce NREs, and shorten time to market by providing a 1U high powershelf that is fully compatible with standard 19 inch rack systems. Two versions of the new powershelf provide compatibility with 12V and 48V versions of Murata Power Solutions class leading D1U power supplies. Both are RoHS compliant and include numerous features that enhance ease of use in applications such as servers, workstations and storage systems that utilise distributed power architectures. The S1U-3X allows hot intersection / removal of power supplies, and also features a blind docking connection. Screw terminal lug connections that accommodate #2 AWG cabling are used to bus-out the DC output. A separate single connector provides powershelf to host communication via the I2C bus. A 12V powershelf holding three D1U-W-1600-12 power supplies is able to support 4.8kW of bulk 12V power. A 48V powershelf containing three D1U-W-2000-48 power supplies supports 6kW of bulk 48V power. An optional shelf-to-shelf signal connector can be utilised to facilitate the interconnection of two S1U-3X powershelves in parallel. This provides 9.6kW of bulk 12V power, or 12kW of bulk 48V power.
