Eltek Launches 48V Flatpack S High-Efficiency DC Power System for Telecom Applications
Flatpack S designed for small-cabinet and limited-space applications; New 48V rectifiers join existing 24V rectifiers for full range of industrial and telecom applications
Eltek, the world leader in high efficiency power systems, today announced a new 48V rectifier
for its Flatpack S DC power systems to meet demand in the telecom industry for a high-efficiency power system that can fit into small spaces.
The 48V Flatpack S
is designed for applications like wireless base station, broadband, fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC), fiber-to-the building (FTTB) and wireless remote radio head (RRH) cabinets. It provides 95.5 percent power conversion efficiency and is housed in a standard-width telecom power shelf that is shallow (210 mm or 8.3") and only 41.5 mm (1.6") high.
The new Flatpack S rectifiers deliver 1000W of power and can be used in both the two-slot and three-slot Flatpack S power shelves. Additional systems with higher power ratings are planned for future release.
The Flatpack S shelves also can be equipped with 1000W, 24V rectifiers for industrial applications.
"As growing data traffic drives the rollout of high speed mobile and fixed data services, the load is pushed towards the edge of the network and space becomes an increasingly important issue," said Morten Schoyen, chief marketing officer at Eltek. "The Flatpack S 48V delivers industry-leading high efficiency and power density, as well as advanced reliability and safety features in a small package that meets this demand."
The Flatpack S systems are managed by the Smartpack S controller
, which monitors all active components and batteries, and offers extra warning and alarm relay outputs for attaching other alarm sensors. The controller has a large display for onsite setup, status and log access. These functions can also be set and monitored remotely.
The Smartpack S also features an extensive list of battery health and monitoring algorithms to extend the life of battery backup systems and ensure backup power when it is needed.
The Flatpack S DC power system can be configured for a variety of output power levels to meet individual application requirements. It can be flush-mounted or mid-mounted, has two plug-in battery breaker positions, low voltage battery disconnect (LBVD) and several load options. In addition, there is a pull-out drawer for easy access to the connection points and cable strain relief.
The Flatpack S 48V rectifiers are available now from Eltek's sales force and resellers worldwide.
