VME Format Power Supplies

A range of rugged VME format high-reliability power supplies engineered to meet the most demanding military and aerospace applications. Housed in a single slot plug-in 6U package the advanced design utilises planar technology for optimum reliability consistent with a lightweight and low-profile outline. The modular topology approach ensures optimum application flexibility by being factory configurable to offer optional ac/dc input and multiple power output configurations (e.g. 5V, ±12V, 3.3V, 5V standby) to 500W.
