Power System Technology
Modular Power Converter for Railways
Power System Technology designs and manufactures custom power solutions for the medical, transportation and defence industries. To prevent the risks associated with discrete solutions, Power System Technology uses Vicor’s wide range of field-proven high-density power modules.
Working in partnership with Vicor, Power System Technology designs and manufactures custom and standard modular power converters dedicated to railway applications. Using their expertise in EMI, thermal management, mechanical packaging and environmental qualifications, our engineers add extra circuitry and intelligence to standard Vicor power modules.
EUROCASSETTE POWER CONVERTERS
Specially designed for the hard environment of the railway, the PST00 and PST15 Eurocard families comply with EN50155 standards for transients and EMI. The integration of Vicor power modules provides very high reliability, high power density and the ability to configure each output voltage from 1VDC to 95VDC.
The pin-outs are compatible with most products available on the market, and options like very low profile, extended temperature range or N+1 redundancy are available.
FULL CUSTOM OR SEMI-STANDARD RAILWAY POWER CONVERTERS
Power System Technology has designed a wide range of full custom or semi-standard products dedicated to railway systems. Our range includes DC/DC converters for the front light of the train, embedded electronic supplies and video entertainment.
Our expertise and experience in design, combined with the benefits of Vicor DC/DC power modules, ensure very short time-to-market, minimum engineering costs and high power density solutions.
PCB / DIN RAIL MOUNTING
Power System Technology’s PCB / din rail mounting solutions provide plug-and-play solutions that are easy to implement into customers’ systems. These solutions come with a warranty that the appropriate protections have been taken into account to meet various railway standards.
With a variety of input voltage and output voltage ranges, and different sizes and formats, these standard solutions will be the perfect answer for critical time-to-market applications.
CHASSIS MOUNTING / CONDUCTION COOLED POWER CONVERTERS
With ambient temperature at 70°C and no air forced in railway applications, conduction-cooled products from Power System Technology are the ideal solution for ‘hermetic’ electronic equipment. The heat is spread to the exterior by mounting the baseplate of the DC/DC or AC/DC converter to the chassis, thus avoiding a rise in internal temperature. The removal of the heatsink aluminium of the converter also saves weight.
