Efficiency, Efficiency, Efficiency.
As many of you know, Magna-Power’s success in providing industry leading 1U and 2U programmable power levels has been a result of the company’s focus on packaging and improving thermal transfer. The new 8 kW SL Series models build upon previous accomplishments, while setting a new course for the company’s engineering efforts as we begin to now focus on improving efficiency and performance.
Our team has been closely following the latest generation of SiC semicoductor devices, awaiting a level of commercial maturity that would allow Magna-Power to offer the same level of reliability and value as its established products. These devices have now reach a level of maturity and price competitiveness with IGBTs—as proven by months of validation—that Magna-Power is confident in their application within the company’s products.
These new 8 kW models operate at a significantly higher efficiency than any previous rack-mount product from Magna-Power, which has allowed the company to increase its lead even further as the most programmable power in 1U.
Consistency Now, New Specifications Later
The 8 kW SL Series models have significantly improved performance specifications over the present SL Series models, including:
- Efficiency up to 92%
- Major reduction in output ripple (up to 50%)
- Lower audible noise
- Significantly faster response times
