Open frame power supply, when do i need to use one?

Open frame power supplies are fitted for a variety of different applications. They are commonly used in industrial and medical settings, where they can provide consistent and reliable power to equipment such as machinery, medical equipment or robotics. They are also popular in the automotive industry, where they help to ensure that vehicles stay powered even during extreme temperature fluctuations or harsh driving conditions. 

An open frame power supply is a type of power supply that is designed to be completely exposed, with no protective housing or casing. They generally have a smaller form factor than traditional enclosed power supplies. This makes them ideal for applications where space is limited. 

The benefits of choosing an open frame power supply

One main benefit in choosing  open frame power supplies is that they are more efficient than enclosed power supplies. This is because open frame power supplies don't have to waste energy cooling down the internal components. They can be used with a wider range of input voltages, making them a good choice for applications where the power source is variable.

 An open frame power supply tends to be smaller in size and weight, which can be important factors in some applications. Additionally, open frame power supplies often have a higher efficiency than enclosed power supplies, meaning less heat is generated and wasted.

The advantages of Open Frame Power Supplies for Medical Equipment

Open frame power supplies are a great choice for medical equipment. Here are some of the advantages they offer:

1) They are more compact and lightweight than traditional power supplies. This makes them ideal for applications where space is limited.

2) They are more efficient and generate less heat than traditional power supplies. This helps to keep your equipment running cooler, which is important in medical applications.

3) They are easier to service and maintain than traditional power supplies. If something goes wrong, it is easy to access the components and fix the issue.

Many come with adjustable output and remote sense features, and built in EMI filter to help ensure compliance with global medical EMC standards.
