TDK-Lambda Introduces DIN Rail Power Supplies that Operate with 3-Phase AC Inputs

TDK-Lambda has released a new series of AC-DC DIN Rail-Mount power supplies with outputs rated from 120 to 480-watts that operate off a 3-phase AC line input from 340 to 575 VAC. These models are ideal for factory automation, industrial control systems and test and measurement equipment.

Each series are available with the most popular output voltages: 12VDC and 24VDC outputs are available in the DPP120 series (rated at 120W) plus 24VDC and 48VDC outputs are available in the DPP240 series (rated at 240W) and the DPP480 series (rated at 480W). An important feature of these new units is their bi-phase operation; under a dropped phase condition they will continue to operate with the output power derated to 80%. All models incorporate power factor correction in accordance with EN61000-3-2.

Output voltages can be adjusted to allow for the voltage drop in cables and similar factors. Load regulation is ±1% when the supplies are used individually and ±5% when two supplies are connected in parallel for higher power applications.

For additional convenience in control and automation applications, the 24V model includes a voltage monitoring (DC Good) relay. The relay contacts are rated at 0.3A and they close when the output voltage is above 17.6V to 19.4VDC; this can be useful  in protecting devices such as sensors and solenoids that may be unpredictable at reduced voltages, i.e., below their nominal 24V rating.

Further features of these DPP 3-phase series include over current protection, over voltage protection and over temperature protection with auto recovery. The operating  temperature range of the power supplies is from -25°C to +71°C.

These new DPP 3-phase series power supplies from TDK-Lambda meet EN55022 Class B EMI standards (radiated and conducted), are CE marked, and are safety-approved to UL/EN60950-1 and UL508 specifications. All models are suitable for either TS35/7.5 or TS35/15 DIN-Rail mounting, and have a robust metal case with convenient screw terminal connections. All models carry a two-year warranty.

The DPP 3-phase series are available now and priced from $64.00 each in quantities of 1k units. For more information, please call TDK-Lambda directly at 1-800-LAMBDA-4 or view our full specs on this and other DIN Rail Mount supplies at: http://www.us.tdk-lambda.com/lp/products/dpp-series.htm

SUSS MicroTec Cooperates with Research Institute ITRI on Technology Development in 3D Integration

SUSS MicroTec, has announced that it is engaging with one of the world's leading research institutes, the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Tawain, on the development of 3D integration technologies. The Advanced Stacked-System Technology and Application Consortium (Ad-STAC), a multinational research association led by ITRI, will implement the 300mm lithography cluster LithoPack300 and the 300mm bond cluster CBC300 of SUSS MicroTec in its 300mm demo production line at ITRI in Hsin-Chu, Taiwan. With this SUSS MicroTec is joining the consortium and will actively apply its expertise in 3D Integration to further process development.

The Ad-STAC aims at driving technology advances for industrial development in the field of 3D Integration. It consists of 12 multinational companies installing the world's first 300mm demo-production line, targeting solely at 3D research and development. This line provides state-of-the-art equipment and materials for a wide range of processes. The facility which is open to all parties interested in 3D development offers companies from different fields as well as research institutes a unique environment to develop and test new technologies and products.

The 300mm wafer processing equipment of SUSS MicroTec joining the demo production line represents the core solutions of the SUSS MicroTec 300mm portfolio. The LithoPack300 integrates two latest generation 300mm photolithography modules, the MA300 Gen2 mask aligner and the ACS300 Gen3 spray coater, in one system. The CBC300 is a modular wafer bonding platform configured to run the latest fusion bonding techniques with plasma activation, thermo compression bonding including copper-to-copper (CuCu) bonds for 3D Integration. It offers temporary bonding capability using the latest generation adhesives specifically designed for the 3D applications.

"We are looking forward to SUSS MicroTec joining Ad-STAC," noted Dr. Ian Chan, VP & EOL General Director of ITRI. "SUSS MicroTec is known as the leading expert in their field so I am confident that their experience will become a real asset to the challenging environment of our demo production line."
