Welcome to the brand-new N2Power blog! We are an industry-leading manufacturer of compact, ultra-efficient powers supply units (PSUs) based in Camarillo, Calif. And while we’re excited to begin our journey with you into the nitty gritty of various topics and news surrounding the power supply industry, we thought we’d take this first opportunity to do a little boasting. So, without further ado, it is our pleasure to introduce you to the newest members of our ever-expanding family of PSUs!
N2Power has welcomed two new series to our medical offerings: the 40-watt ML40 and 65-watt ML65. Designed for easy integration into medical devices, both series carry the latest UL/EN 60601 medical certifications. They are rated 2xMOPP (means of patient protection)—a safety standard that protects patients from shocks by requiring devices have two redundant means of protection that provide isolation for up to 4,000 VAC. They are also mechanically compatible with each other as well as their 100-watt, 2” × 3” big brother—the ML100.
The speed with which new equipment can be deployed to the field is key in responding to new health-care needs and maintaining the steady advancement of treatments, and N2Power’s medical series makes the process of integrating a power supply into a new medical application as fast and simple as possible. The PSUs comprising the medical line have already gone through the rigors of certification and can be added to a new design without having to be reapproved. This means that projects can be taken from design to reality as quickly as possible while avoiding regulatory hurdles. Some companies require lead times in excess of 20 weeks, but N2Power is able to provide power solutions within eight to 10 weeks after receipt of order. Like the rest of our medical PSUs, the ML40 and ML65 can be customized to the client’s specifications without requiring recertification as long as there are no UL critical safety component changes.
With physical footprints measuring just 6 cubic inches and yielding power densities of over 6 watts and over 10 watts per cubic inch, respectively, the ML40 and ML65 are the perfect size for integration into mobile equipment, where space is at a premium. They are available in a number of chassis configurations—including open-frame, U-frame, enclosed, and DIN rail—further simplifying integration. Both new models offer up to 93.5% power efficiency, which helps prevent heat waste and mitigates the need for cooling fans, making them especially useful for applications like medical ventilators. Their efficiency and low standby power consumption also make them a green choice by minimizing energy usage and therefore your organization’s carbon footprint.
Of course, like all our products, the ML40 and ML60 are covered by N2Power’s best-in-class three-year warranty. But if something should go wrong, don’t worry; Our elite technical support team is available to help you work through any problems. Furthermore, our Optimized Power Systems Manufacturing (OPSM) capability—one we will revisit in greater detail in subsequent blog posts—allows us to provide our customers with a simplified purchasing experience by delivering everything the client needs to implement their power solution, including mounting, brackets, nuts, bolts, and other accessories. This makes the entire process easier by reducing the entire bill of materials to a single entry.
Even throughout this difficult period, we are lucky to say that N2Power has been able to remain operational and is currently manufacturing at capacity. Our shipping capabilities have also remained unaffected, allowing us to get products to our customers without delay. If you are interested in learning more about the ML40 and ML65, and if one of them may be a fit for your unique medical application, please get in touch today!
