GE Energy Delivers High Efficiency Open Frame Power Supply

New CLP Series Offers 80 PLUS® Gold Efficiency and Leading Density in Compact Footprint

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - GE Energy (NYSE: GE) today announced the 200 Watt CLP0212 open frame power supply. In a 2 x 4 inch footprint smaller than an iPhone®, the 12Vdc single-output supply delivers 80 PLUS Gold energy efficiency. Half the size of other power supplies in this segment, the CLP series is specifically designed to handle power challenges associated with tight space and low airflow. The new power supply offers leading 18W/in3 power density in a 1U high, fan-less form factor to address a broad range of applications in new products from communications, computing and data storage original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

"We're offering OEMs a small, cost-effective, energy-efficient power supply that leads the industry in power density while helping to lower utility bills and cooling requirements," said Jeff Schnitzer, president of GE Energy's Power Electronics business. "We're happy to see quick adoption in next-generation broadband router/modem, network attached storage, wireless access point and set-top box devices that enable anywhere, anytime access to digital content."

As part of the GE Energy Total Efficiency™ architecture, the new CLP series delivers greater than 90 percent typical power efficiency and full load output at 50˚C (122˚F) with limited current de-rating at higher temperatures. The CLP series utilizes unique designs for combined feedback of zero voltage switching through line load control and quasi-resonant power factor correction (PFC) circuits while also optimizing transformer geometry and switching frequency. Input range is 90-265Vac with 12ms hold up time, 100 kHz switching frequency, narrow 15 kHz frequency band and active PFC. Protection features include over-current, over-voltage and over-temperature. Fault tolerance capabilities deliver N+1 redundancy for high-availability requirements. No load power consumption is less than 0.5 watts. Certifications include FCC Class A, CE, CSA, TUV and UL.

80 PLUS is a certification and incentive program, funded by electric utilities and energy efficiency organizations, to integrate more energy-efficient power supplies into desktop computers and servers. When using a product certified by the 80 PLUS organization, the customer is assured that the power supply is tested to the highest levels of power efficiency available in the market to help reduce carbon footprints, conserve energy resources, and obtain a lower total cost of ownership.
