Test and measurement application
A large global OEM client came to us with a challenge for a power conversion solution for a power-hungry stepper motor driving an important mechanical element of their system.
Physical space in the system was limited.
A 81W CFM81S series product from Cincon was selected against the 150Watt power budget. This was possible because the power budget was recognised against the start-up current draw versus the average power.
Discovery questions allowed identification of a smaller average running current and reduced duty cycle at this peak load allowing for a smaller, lower power SMPSU to be used.
The part could be an Industry Std 2 x 3’ instead of the typical 2 x 4’ footprint at this power level.
Part Number: CFM81S240 / Size: 2 x 3’ / 162W peak available for <10 secs with a 10% duty cycle.
Final system design could be smaller, a constant market demand, ensuring the product remained desirable in the market.
Potential market share gains now attainable. Cost also reduced from the bottom-line increasing profit margins and revenue.
