Open-Frame Converter: Increase Thermal Performance In Telecom, Computing And Server


High efficiency and thermal performance in Telecom, Computing and Server Equipment can be attained with the new open-frame converter design from Artesyn which can deliver forced air-cooling with an aluminum baseplate option for enhanced thermal performance. The ADQ600 series is a quarter brick isolated DC-DC converter which is capable of attaining ultra-high efficiency of typically 95.6 per cent at full load and can operate over an ambient temperature range of -40˚C to 85˚C, making it an ideal choice for the isolated converter in a distributed power architecture supplying power to non-isolated converters according to the press release.

Referring to the product details, “The ADQ600 series quarter-brick isolated DC-DC converter produces a single fully regulated 12V output. Rated at 600W, the converter can deliver up to 50A output current and has no minimum load requirement. It has an input voltage range of 40V to 60V and is primarily designed for use with standard 48V supplies in computing and server applications, as well as regulated 48V supplies in telecommunications equipment. Also, the ADQ600 series converters are low profile units that are ideally suited for systems with demanding inter-board spacing requirements”

The product features of ADQ600 are as listed below:

  • Deliver up to 50A output
