AC DC Switching Power SupplyEvery day, we need electricity to power on the daily devices. Let’s see how it work. After the power plant sends thousands of AC high voltages of 20,000 volts, it is stepped down to 100V and 200V through the transformer in the pole before being sent to the general household. The outlet in the house supplies AC power, so after the AC/DC power supply conversion circuit, the DC power is supplied to the household appliance.The type we insert into the appliance is open frame power supply. Another with a plastic case, AC plug/AC inlet and DC connector is power adaptor. As to the usages, there are IT switching power supplies, medical power supply units, battery chargers, USB chargers and DC DC car adaptors. These are on Astek’s power supplies product lists.About the switching power supplies design, at the initial stage, the required specifications must be confirmed.1. Input voltage range, output voltages/currents2. Standby power3. Max./min./cooling temperature4. The allowable area/heights in size5. Necessary protection: such as overcurrent, overvoltage, and over temperature6. Special environments/application: like used in tropic zone or with aerospace…7. CostsEvaluation and trial1. Use evaluation board / work2. Make a test board, run under preset conditions and evaluate performance3. Debugging, optimization4. Distinguish Compliance / non-compliance with specifications and safety standards.5. Reserved space for modification and upgrade by customers’ demand or when new safety standards enforced.When evaluating, carefully check the output voltage, load current, temperature upper limit, etc. If the design is not able to withstand the temperature, it is easy to deviate from the required specifications during mass production, or because the batch affects the yield. The characteristics of the components that make up the circuit are different, so it is important to understand the characteristics of the part and design an article that meets the specifications. During this period, it’s critical to choose the right components, power supply layout and circuits.After then, the design of power supplies is closed to complete and initiate the mass production. Before the shipments, our factory will inspect with Chroma and 100% burn-in tests.Any inquiries, please feel free to touch us. https://www.astekglobe.com/hot_317390.html AC DC Switching power supplies 2021-01-20 2022-01-20

Spotlight on Adapter of Australia and New Zealand

As for adapters, there are two types, desktop and plug-in (wall mount). If direct plug-in type, it’s with sole type. In order to protect end users no electric shocks, its pins with black isolations. Besides it, this plug must pass pull, ball pressure, falling tests. AS/NZS 3112 is the Australia and New Zealand certification of plug. For the convenience to apply Australia certification, we add report of AS/NZS 3112 into CB approvals.

New version of Australia and New Zealand plugs (AS/NZS 3112:2017) had released on Aug. 24 of 2017 which will replace the current standard AS/NZS 3112:2011+A1+A2+A3 no later than Feb. 24 of 2019.

From May 29 of 2018, AU/NZ fixed plugs must be the compliance of AS/NZS 3112:2011+A1+A2+A3 at least, meanwhile, interchangeable AU/NZ plugs with AS/NZS 3112:2017.

Desktop adapters don’t need comply with AS/NZS 3112.

In Australia and New Zealand, its input 240V, frequency 50Hz. As for certification, RCM is the newest approvals. Adapters belong to Level III, which enforces the level of RCM. In the latest version, the local importers/distributors have to prepare the relative documents, like the photographs, product information, and EMC reports and certificate of adapters. Under this situation, we always provide our customers CB and EMC reports to apply and register RCM on governmental website.

In addition, concerning efficiency level in Australia and New Zealand, GEMS replaced MEPS from Oct. 1, 2012. Transition period was from Oct. 1 of 2012 to Sep. 30 of 2013. Like RCM, GEMS shall register by the local importer/distributor to Australian Regulator and its fee is between AUD440.- and AUD780; period is 5 years.

Australia and New Zealand are special markets to us. It’s not a very large market, like America and Europe and China, however, it’s a nice territory with characteristic cultures. I like Australian and New Zealander’s humble, low-profile and love-nature.

Mining and Livestock farming are main industries in Australia and New Zealand. Some of our customers purchasing adapters and chargers for these applications, such as large farming machine, shearing machine, animal weight scale, livelihood fences, and metal mining machine and so on.

Thanks to the experiences of these years, we admire their business ability. In some years, when global economy depressed, the sales amount of some Australian and New Zealand customers still grows without influences. No wonder why their ancients could overcome all difficulties to build these paradises.
