Power-One's High Efficiency Power Supply With Integrated Battery Back-Up Circuit Targeted for Next Generation Open Compute Servers and Data Centers

With the power supply designed at better than 94% efficiency, less energy is wasted within the server, and less energy is consumed in the overall cooling infrastructure.

CAMARILLO, Calif., Dec. 6, 2012 -- Power-One, Inc.

(Nasdaq:PWER), a leading provider of renewable energy and
energy-efficient power conversion and power management solutions, has
released 450W and 700W High Efficiency Power Supply/Battery Back-up
units for use in next generation, high efficiency servers and data
centers. The Power-One power supplies, SPAFCBK-02G (450W) and
SPAFCBK-03G (700W), have been designed based on the Open Compute
Project specifications.

The power supplies combine a 450W or 700W Platinum Efficiency rated
AC-DC power supply with a 48Vdc battery back-up circuit, all in one
compact design. Both versions are highly efficient (over 94%
efficiency) and the power supply has been certified to 80-Plus Platinum
level efficiency. They operate from a 277Vac input voltage source which
allows the server to be powered directly from one-phase of the high
voltage 3-phase input power distribution network. Designing the power
supply for 277Vac per the Open Compute Project specifications
eliminates an expensive site transformer, and is critical to the goal
of increasing the power efficiency and reducing the overall carbon
footprint of the data center.

With the power supply designed at better than 94% efficiency, less
energy is wasted within the server, and less energy is consumed in the
overall cooling infrastructure. The integrated 48V battery back-up
circuit eliminates the need for inefficient UPS systems and allows for
a localized, scalable power back-up infrastructure.

"This was a very technically challenging product
due to the high efficiency target and the complexity of the power supply/battery
back-up design. The power supply is a crucial building block for the
next generation of highly efficient servers and data centers. Power-One
was the first in the industry to release such a product and we have
followed that lead with these latest power supply offerings," said
Helio Sakaya, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for

Featured Product



You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
