DENVER -- Advanced Energy (Nasdaq: AEIS) unveiled a new 48-volt DC-input power supply designed for compute, storage and networking applications. The new Artesyn CSU2000ADC-3 joins the company’s CSU series of AC-DC power conversion solutions and broadens AE’s product portfolio to meet data center power supply needs for telecommunications, data communications, cloud infrastructure and enterprise IT customers.advanced-logo 

The CSU2000ADC-3 has 48 V input and 12 V output at 2000 W. AE said the new DC-DC power supply is the industry’s only 2 kW carrier-grade power supply, providing unmatched scalability and a path for power capacity flexibility while satisfying unique carrier requirements for input cabling. 

It features an industry standard common redundant power supply (CRPS) form factor, making it simple for customers to design into their systems. Designed to serve a wide range of applications in traditional AC data centers, DC telco central offices, as well as increasingly-common DC data centers, the CSU2000ADC-3 delivers universal usage across these three environments, which reduces customers’ development time, cost and risk, AE said.

“Our customers want a one-stop partner for power conversion solutions and this introduction of a 48-volt DC-input power supply is the next important milestone in building our complete CSU series portfolio,” said Brian Korn, AE’s VP and GM of data center computing, telecom and network products. 

“Our new CSU2000ADC-3 provides our customers with the predictable performance and future-proof system designs they’ve come to expect from AE.”

AE said the introduction of the CSU2000ADC-3 comes at a time of exponential growth in data computing, storage and networking, fueled by accelerated adoption of cloud computing and Internet usage, as well as growing investments in hyperscale data center infrastructure, as the world experiences the 4th industrial revolution.
