AN1701: How to Select Power Supplies for High-Altitude Applications
Abstract: This paper describes how CoolX600 modular power supplies help customers mitigate the safety and regulatory risks when designing for end applications where altitude is a factor.
For the design engineer, the main considerations when designing for applications where altitude is a factor is understanding how high altitude can negatively impact the electronics within, as well as surrounding the power supplies, and complying with the safety regulations for these applications.
Excelsys Technologies’ modular, fanless power supply, the CoolX600 Series, takes into account the specific needs for demanding applications that must maintain high-reliability and efficiency at high altitudes. This paper describes the challenges altitude presents, and explains how the CoolX600 offers unique benefits to meet both application and regulatory requirements.
