When to choose an AC-DC power supply manufacturer and what are the benefits of choosing an AC-DC power supply

AC DC Power Module Filling Requirements
Potting and sealing of AC DC power modules is very important. This process involves not only the protection of AC and DC power modules (waterproof, moisture-proof, dust-proof, anti-corrosion, etc.), but also the thermal design of AC and DC power modules.

Power module potting materials are generally divided into three categories: epoxy resin, polyurethane, and silicone rubber

Due to the hardness of epoxy resin, it cannot be used for stress-sensitive and module packaging and SMT components, so it is basically eliminated in module power supplies. But epoxy resins are also used in cost-critical micropower power supplies due to their low cost. Some domestic bad power supply manufacturers also use this epoxy resin for AC and DC power supply modules, but due to stress problems, the failure rate of this power supply is very high, and buyers are very distressed.
At present, most of the power modules are sealed with molded silicone. For the convenience of operation, the ratio of 1:1 is usually adopted. When designing for AC and DC power modules, attention should be paid to their thermal conductivity. However, the adhesion is not very strong, so a substrate coating can be used to improve sealing.

Polyurethane has been used in China for a period of time, but due to its high hardness, inconvenient maintenance, and the price of silicone rubber, polyurethane is not cost-effective. There is basically no domestic application of it.

Special attention should be paid to thermal conductivity in relation to thermal design. Generally speaking, a thermal conductivity of 0.5w/M·K is defined as high thermal conductivity, and a thermal conductivity greater than 1 is defined as very high thermal conductivity.

 

 

The power module is such a highly integrated small and medium-sized switching power supply. In recent years, with the development trend of high and new technology, it has been widely used in industrial electrical, power supply system, instrumentation, urban rail, intelligent security, new energy technology, communication, automation technology and intelligent system industry.

Make sure to type the source type first
The power module can input AC current or AC current. Normally, the FH/DC power module selects AC current input, and the DC/DC power module selects AC input. The high-cubic FH-DC power module can also be used normally under the DC input working voltage standard.

Type in the operating voltage category to select
After confirming the input source, the input working voltage can refer to the manufacturer’s motor selection structure. The communication keys are basically 120V, 230V, 220V. Now FH/DC power modules usually consider 86~265VAC or 150~370VDC types, and 220V also consider 230V types, but the probability of application at 230V will be much worse, and the DC keys are basically 5V~76V.

 

Select the package type of the item
Product package types include single in-line SIP package, small and medium vertical bare board, dual in-line ultra-small DIP package and rail package. The bare board is composed of a PCB circuit board and various components. It is completely exposed and not very safe, but the cost is low.

DIP packaging is usually strongly recommended. Although it is expensive to lose, it has the characteristics of potting packaging, safety protection, good heat dissipation characteristics of heat pipes, anti-freezing, moisture-proof and stable characteristics. must be selected on a case-by-case basis.

Select the output power of the goods according to the load size
When selecting the output power of the power module, it is usually strongly recommended to reserve the capacity, and the output power of the application is between 30 and 90% of the actual output power. The capacity is large and there are noise problems when working at high frequencies.

    Is a custom power module better than a general power module?

    When you buy a power module, do you choose a normal power module or a custom power module? In most cases, generic power modules are available, while custom power modules are specifically set up for certain situations. Then, according to the actual needs of customers, decide whether to customize the power module or buy a general power module. In this highly competitive market, if an enterprise wants to improve the competitiveness of its products, it must make its products have certain highlights, and it becomes very important to differentiate the design of its products. Everybody has something, you have to do it well, everybody doesn't have something, you have to innovate. The so-called custom power module is actually a new...

    Some details that power module manufacturers need to know

    With the development of the times, the application of power modules is becoming more and more extensive, and the demand is also increasing. However, there are many manufacturers on the market now. When choosing a manufacturer, you also need to pay attention to some details. It is not that the lower the price, the better. 1. Manufacturer's Certificate of Conformity Few manufacturers now buy fake and shoddy products, but due to different manufacturing processes, there will definitely be some differences in quality. Therefore, in the procurement of power modules, we need to know the manufacturer's product certificate, so that we can know what the product specifications are, and can quickly choose better quality products. 2. Understand the service life of...

    What you need to consider when designing a power module

    If you are a switching power supply technical engineer, you don't need to read the introduction of the power module. When you are still a novice, or learning microcontroller design, it is best to look down word by word. The benefits of choosing a power module At present, different distributors have released a variety of different power modules in the sales market, but the working voltage, power, function and topology structure types of different products are not the same. Choosing a power module saves development design time and enables a quick time-to-market, so a power module is preferred over an integrated solution. 1. Each control module can be tested rigorously in various aspects to ensure that its aspect ratio is...

    How to solve the problem of power module selection

    It is not easy to select a power module. There are many difficulties to consider. How much do you know? Magnetic beads, capacitors, diodes, resistors... all have similar inside stories, but people don't pay much attention to them. There are various topologies of power modules, such as flyback, forward, push-pull, half-bridge, and full-bridge. Due to their different basic principles, each of them is mainly manifested in the advantages at the level of certain characteristic indicators. The flyback power supply does not have a time period for charging and discharging the battery during the power switch period. That is because there is no time characteristic of the response characteristic, and the grain baud cannot be guaranteed to be very good, although...
