Avnet Abacus signs pan-European franchise deal with Delta

Wide range of high performance DIN rail, panel mount, medical adapters and industrial+telecom DC/DC converters now available

Avnet Abacus, one of Europe’s leading interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical and power distributors and a business unit of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet, Inc., (NYSE: AVT), has signed a pan-European franchise agreement to represent Delta Electronics Group, the world’s largest manufacturers of power supplies by sales revenue. Delta has held this position since 2002 with products mainly addressing the ODM/OEM sectors; however it was only in 2009 that the company began mass production and shipment of products under the Delta brand. Delta’s product range includes CLiQ and CLiQ II series DIN rail power supplies and modules, PMC/PMT/PJ series panel mount/open frame supplies and MDS series medical adapters and open frames.

Delta’s DIN rail PSUs all feature conformal coating of the PCB and come in full aluminium or plastic casings to protect the supplies and improve performance. Single-phase 12V CLiQ units are available in 15, 30, 60 and 100 W variants; single and 3-phase 24V units are available covering 60, 120, 240 and 480W. Single-phase 24V CLiQ II units are also available at 60, 120, 240, 480 and 960W with the 60 and 120W units benefitting from additional 20 and 40A redundancy modules respectively. Devices are compact, IP20-compliant and facilitate simple wire connection. These high-efficiency, RoHS-compliant units are expected to last 10 years and feature overload, over-voltage and over-temperature protection.

Single phase PMC/PMT/PJ panel mount and open frame supplies are available in a range of options, initially 5V @ 35w with 15w, 50w & 100w options available in the near future, also at 12V at 35, 50 and 100W; and 24V at 35, 50, 75, 100, 150 and 300W. The RoHS-compliant PSUs are expected to last 10 years, while the PMC series have an MTBF of over 700,000 hours and a two-year warranty. The universal input devices also feature overload, over voltage and over-temperature protection.

Compact universal input MDS medical adapters and open frame power supplies, all UL 60601-1 3rd edition approved, are offered in 60W, 90W and 150W adaptor variants with 12V, 15V, 19V or 24V output.  The open frame series runs from 40W, 65W, 100W to even 400W with similar output configurations as the adaptors. The high efficiency units feature a no-load power consumption of between 0.3 and 0.5W and brownout recovery. Devices are RoHS and Energy Star Compliant (Level V), meet medical safety agency requirements and have a three-year warranty.

Delta DC/DC converters offer ranges for industrial, telecom and transportation applications. Recently a newly expanded series of low power, 1W-6W, industrial standard DC/DC converters has been added to the portfolio together with S24SE/S24DE (1″x1″, 10-30W with wide input range 9V~36Vin). The wide range of industrial and telecom series includes state-of-the-art ultra density high power designs for server and ITC applications. The non-isolated POL series covers the need of power consuming fast microprocessors and programmable devices. Additionally there is the new isolated IP 67 200-400W box-type DC/DC converter for transportation applications.

Mr. K.K. Chong, sales director Thailand at Delta Electronics Europe, commented: “Avnet Abacus has the knowledge, experience and focus to help us deliver our leading power supplies to the European market.”

Cor Van Dam, marketing director, power for Avnet Abacus in Europe, added: “We are delighted to be able to bring the world’s largest power supply manufacturers products to our diverse customer base. Delta products are a welcome addition to our expanding ‘Best Fit’ Power program which offers solutions to our customer’s power supply demands.”
