PS Series with ZipClip
Desktop Power Supplies Featuring ZipClip®
The Extron PS Series of External Power Supplies is designed and manufactured to meet Extron's stringent specifications. These robust products offer increased durability, energy efficiency, and reliability when compared to traditional power supplies.
PS Series Desktop Power Supply
The energy efficient Extron PS Series of Desktop Power Supplies are ENERGY STAR® qualified and consume just 0.3 watts in idle when no load is present on the output. In comparison, a typical desktop power supply may draw 2 watts of input power in idle. In order to earn the ENERGY STAR, desktop power supplies must achieve a minimum average efficiency of 79% when output power is divided by input power. Every Extron PS Series Desktop Power Supply has an efficiency rating of over 80%. Extron also designs and engineers internal power supplies for our products. Conventional internal power supplies are at best 70% efficient, meaning that 30% or more of the input power is wasted as heat. Our larger internal power supplies achieve an even greater efficiency rating of up to 90%. This significant reduction in waste heat generation adds to the power supply's lifespan.
Demonstrated MTBF - Mean Time Bewteen Failures
To ensure our power supplies meet Extron standards of performance and quality, we placed a sample quantity into a heat chamber to simulate an accelerated operational lifespan. This produces a demonstrated MTBF – Mean Time Between Failures – rather than a calculated MTBF that is based on the stated specifications of the individual components. To date, the Extron PS Series of Desktop Power Supplies have a demonstrated MTBF of more than 1,000,000 hours. By comparison, our original power supplies had an MTBF of 30,000 hours. We know of no other company that has gone to such lengths to guarantee power supply reliability. PS Series power supplies are available in the most popular voltages used by Extron products: 9, 12, and 15 VDC.
Zipclip Mounting System
With the included ZipClip mounting kit, the desktop power supplies can be quickly and securely mounted to rack rails, tables, and lecterns. The unique enclosure design allows direct mounting to projector poles, table legs, and other oddly shaped structures. The compact one-eighth rack width by 1U size of the PS Series power supplies enables them to be installed in small spaces.
