Eltek Launches New Flatpack S 2U High-Efficiency DC Power System for Telecommunications Infrastructure Applications

Compact System Has Only 12” Footprint, Yet Delivers Up to 200 Amps with Efficiency Levels Exceeding 95 Percent at 48 V DC Output

OSP EXPO 2014

PLANO, Texas--()--Eltek, a global technology leader in high efficiency power systems for telecommunications and industrial applications, today announced availability of the Flatpack S 2U, a new high-efficiency (HE) DC power solution that is only 12” deep, but can support telecom applications that require up to 200 Amps.

The Flatpack S 2U is a two rack-unit high system that delivers 48V DC power to telecom infrastructure that include: 4G/LTE, FTTX, distributed antenna systems, microwave broadband, cable broadband, telephony servers and switches and fiber-optics. The device is the second form factor in Eltek’s Flatpack S product family, joining a 1U-high, 100A system.

The compact size of the new system makes it perfect for use in 19” or 23” wide racks and cabinets. And at 2U high, there’s more room for technicians to connect cables and work inside the system. Horizontal cabling reduces vertical space requirements and connections are all front access. Built as a plug-and-play system, the Flatpack S 2U reduces installation time and enables cost-effective deployment.

Eltek’s Flatpack S high-efficiency rectifiers power the Flatpack S 2U, and typically achieve efficiency levels above 95 percent at 48V DC output. With front-to-back airflow and chassis-integrated heat sinks, the system also provides excellent heat management.

In addition, Eltek’s advanced Smartpack S controller is built into the system to enable remote monitoring, maintenance and data collection. The Smartpack S has enhanced battery management capabilities including extensive testing features, automatic temperature compensated battery charging and support for automatic and manual boost-charging methods. In many cases, these features can extend the life of batteries and provide an accurate estimate of battery capacity and remaining lifetime.

“The new Flatpack S 2U doubles the power that can be delivered to telecom applications, despite its small dimensions,” said Roel Cortez, Eltek’s vice president of sales for North America. “This innovative addition to our Flatpack S product family provides high efficiency, unprecedented power output and advanced features, all for space-constrained installations.”

The Flatpack S 2U system is available from Eltek's worldwide sales force. The complete Flatpack S 2U system includes controller, rectifiers, battery and load distribution. To learn more, go to: www.eltek.com.
