The power supply offers improved space savings for embedded applications and is suited for 1U short-depth industrial PCs.
Micro Computer, a provider of server technology and green computing, introduced
its latest power supply technology: a short-depth, redundant power module
option for its SuperServers, the PWS-406P-1R. This 1U 400W supply module
conforms to Energy Star Server 2.0 specifications and has SuperCompact
dimensions of 8.66 inches by 2.15 inches by 1U height.
new power supply offers improved space savings for embedded applications and is
suited for 1U short-depth industrial PCs. In situations requiring high
availability such as mission-critical and high-density server computing, it
provides redundancy where space and thermal limitations present a challenge.
all Supermicro power supplies, the improved overall power efficiency is
designed to reduce energy consumption and total cost of ownership (TCO). The
PWS-406P-1R power supply provides an enhanced power factor and 93 percent
efficiency, superior to 80PLUS Gold-level performance. The company said this
helps to minimize infrastructural and uninterruptable power supply (UPS) costs,
and reduces total volt-ampere (VA) and watt requirements.
power supply engineering division constantly pushes the envelope of advanced
power design and brings our technologies to manufacturability," said
Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "Our product innovations
provide Supermicro customers with impressive efficiency gains and highly
reliable, redundant supply modules in SuperCompact form factors."
power modules are also designed to provide the flexibility of remote and local
management for real-time monitoring and controlling. The power supply also
features PMbus 1.2, SMBAlert and configurable PWS fan speed, and it supports
node management and PMbus requirements for the latest processors such as the
Intel Xeon E3-1200.
advantage of the newest SuperCompact Power Modules, Supermicro is releasing its
next generation X9 SuperServer products as well. The SYS-5017C-MTRF server is
based on the X9SCL-F ATX motherboard providing redundant hot-swappable supplies
in a 1U rack-mount enclosure. The company said this server is ideal for IPC and
embedded systems as well as a host of other scalable computing applications.
company also launched the latest addition to their embedded server building
block solutions. This new generation of product is optimized with the Intel 2nd
generation Core product family and Intel QM67 Express Chipsets. Supermicro's X9
embedded solution delivers 25 percent higher performance (four cores and eight
threads per node) while lowering power consumption over the previous
compact platform provides PCI-E 2.0 x16 support and power savings capabilities
as well as remote management, security and a DC power option. It offers high
CPU and graphics performance in a mini-ITX form factor, making it ideal for
embedded applications such as multidisplay digital signage, multichannel
digital surveillance, expandable I/O industrial control and long-life medical
Supermicro, we continuously innovate alongside advancing CPU and chipset
technologies," said Wally Liaw, Supermicro's vice president of
international sales. "Our embedded customers benefit from our
higher-efficiency, higher-performance mobile processor-based solutions in the
latest compact form factors while further reducing their overall TCO."
