New Success Stories of TDK-Lambda Israel January 2022


New Project for a Global Manufacturer of Industrial Printers

TDK-Lambda Israel has recently completed a new project for a leading global company that manufactures industrial printers. The power systemprovided by TDK-Lambda, which was designed according to the customer’s specifications, serves a system that feeds printing media to the machine. The system’s core power supply is TDK-Lambda’s FPS1000 hot swap series. The new system has replaced an older system designed by another manufacturer. Its return rate was very high due to electronic and mechanical problems. TDK-Lambda’s engineers redesigned the electronic boards, and improved the mechanical layout structure, thus making the systemmore robust. The 1000W Front End Power Supplies offer high efficiency and lower cost of ownership. The series is also used in factory automation, RF amplifiers and distributed power architecture.

A challenging application that we have recently completed is based on the connection of 5 units of the GXE-600 series - for the use in test equipment. The customer requested for a solution that will have 5 remote controlled outputs; and all at a height of only 1U due to lack of space. In our unique tailored solution, each of the 5 outputs is controlled separately. Each of the units has a separate voltage input - and includes advanced display. TDK-Lambda’s GXE-600 programmable AC-DC power supply is ideal for testing applications requiring wide-range output voltage and current programming, with sensitivity to noise from cooling fans. Theproduct featuresadvancedmonitoringfunctions, andoffersdigitaloranalogprogramming. It can operate in ambient temperatures ranging from -20 to +70°C



TDK-Lambda Israel has recently assisted to a local manufacturer of aesthetic devices, that had to stop production due to supply difficulties of its power supply provider (lead-time of more than a year). The company contacted us, requesting equivalent power supply products with a better delivery availability. We tailored a complete solution of power supplies that fit the technical specifications of the aesthetic equipment manufactured by the company. The customer has chosen to switch to TDK-Lambda’s products, and we quickly started the testing process for the products. TDK-Lambda offers an extensive product line of power supplies for medical and aesthetic applications. The series - including CUS, QM, DTM and GXE – are approved to the highest medical safety standards. Israeli Manufacturer of Aesthetic Devices Switched to TDK-Lambda’s Products

New DC-DC Converters for Noise Sensitive Applications

TDK-Lambda is a global leader in both isolated and non-isolated DC-DC converters. For its Israeli customers, local inventory and local support enable TDK-Lambda to offer optimal solutions for unique needs. Some of these special requirements come from producers of electrical applications that are very sensitive to radiated and conducted noise. These devices include scanning electron microscopes, X-ray spectrometers, photomultiplier tubes, photodiodes, mass spectrometers and ultrasonic probes. TDK-Lambda’s new CHVM series of DC-DC converters was especially developed for such noise sensitive applications. The low output ripple and noise is achieved through the use of a metallic case that provides five-sided shielding to reduce radiated emission (less external filtering is required). These non-isolated converters have programmable output voltages (voltage or resistance). They are capable of operating from a nominal 12V input, with output voltages of 180, 300, 350, 470, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000V. The converters are certified to IEC/UL/CSA/EN 62368-1 safety standards, and have the CE mark for the Low Voltage and RoHS Directives.


TDK-Lambda’s CUS600M series of AC-DC power supplies has compact measures and heat optimized design, that save installation space in the customer’s end-equipment. In only 3” x 5” footprint (and height of just 1.46”) the CUS600M is available in 7 output voltages, including 32V. It operates with efficiencies of up to 96%, and has low leakage current - typically <200µA. The series can deliver 400W (600W peak) in -20°C to +40°C temperatures. The CUS600M has an input to output isolation of 4 kVac (2 x MoPP). Its quiet operation enhances the patient/user experience when used in medical equipment. The product serves producers of X-Ray machines, MRI scanners, hospital beds, ultrasound equipment, incubators and blood pressure monitors. Other typical applications include test and measurement devices, and industrial equipment that require up to 600W. The series is certified to medical and ITE standards for Class I and II operation, including IEC/ ES 60601-1 3rd edition, and has a 5-year warranty. Compact, Quiet and Reliable: The CUS600M Series Offers Many Advantages for Healthcare Producers



Special Tips for Customers for AC-DC Power Supply

TDK-Lambda held a webinar in December titled “The Secrets behind Power Supply”. The lecturer, Chris Maidment, TDK-Lambda’s Technical Marketing Manager, gave an insight into some of the “secret” facts behind key AC-DC parameters that are listed on a typical datasheet. Why secret? Because power supply manufacturers usually don’t include all technical information on the datasheet, from practical reasons. But since the datasheet may be the only document that a customer uses to base his purchase decision - there are hints & tips that can help... Here are just some of the key parameters and questions that Chris covered in the lecture: • Efficiency: Why comparison of efficiency rates between manufacturers is not so simple, and what you need to make sure? • Thermal Measurement: Which rule of thumb can help you estimate the real lifetime of the units? • Over Current: What is the difference between each protection technique? • Mechanical Options: How can you achieve real cooling benefits, and therefore lifetime benefits? • Medical Leakage Currents: Which critical factors determine the probability of what is potentially harmful to a patient / operator?


120% Power Boost for 2 Critical Seconds: Meet the New Addition of the DRB Series

TDK-Lambda is introducing the addition of three-phase AC input models to the DRB series DIN-Rail mount power supplies. The units have a special feature that enables a power boost of 120% for 2 seconds - to support capacitive loads start-up. Their continuous operation is at 120W and 240W; and in peak power they can deliver 144W and 288W. The models have a wide adjustment range of 11.4 to 15V, (12V model), 22.5 to 29V (24V models) and 45 to 56V (48V model). These power supplies also feature a very low energy inrush current upon initial start-up, reducing nuisance tripping of input circuit breakers. The series is suitable for a wide range of applications, including conventional switch cabinets, decentralized machinery and industrial systems. Other Benefits: • DC-OK and inhibit relay contacts for professional integration into applications control architecture • Parallel mode switch to activate load balancing behavior • Very low inrush energy peak saves cost for input line protection • High efficiency and low stand-by losses contribute to an eco-friendly energy footprint • Designed to meet the most accepted IEC safety standards, and regulatory EMC standards on radiated emission



60 kW in a Single Cabinet of 20U Height TDK-Lambda Israel introduces a high power programmable DC series system, with up to 60 kW (4 x 15Kw GSP/GSS), in a single rack-mount cabinet of 20U height.


Genesys+ Power System series power supplies offers a wide output range, high performance switching power supplies.
