Embedded PC/104+ ModuleRoHS-compliant



The VL-EPMs-PS1 is a plug-in 50 watt switching DC/DC converter and power supply module designed to power an embedded system stack. This robust power supply is the ideal solution for powering systems in defense, aerospace, medical device, robotics, and factory automation where a small footprint and dependable operation are crucial design factors.

This in-stack supply is an ideal way to provide clean, reliable, noise-free power to the heart of larger systems. It eliminates the problems associated with distributing clean, properly regulated power within automated systems, especially those that include motors and other sources of electrical noise. Voltage sag, intermittent operation, and unexplained system resets are eliminated by having a dedicated in-stack power source for the control system.

Like all VersaLogic products, the VL-EPMs-PS1 is designed to support OEM applications where high reliability and long-term availability are required. From application design-in to 5+ guaranteed years of production life, the VL-EPMs-PS1 provides a durable embedded computer solution with an excellent cost of ownership. The VL-EPMs-PS1 is manufactured and tested to the highest quality standards and is fully RoHS compliant. Customization is available, even in low OEM quantities.


The VL-EPMs-PS1 power supply provides up to 50 watts of continuous output power. The unit operates over a wide +9 to +40 VDC input range to produce standard output voltages of +5V and 12V. Output power is delivered through the stackable SUMIT and/or ISA connectors to power compatible boards while auxiliary terminal blocks provide output power for sensors, transducers, and other ancillary circuitry.

The module is designed to operate over an extended temperature range (50W from -40 to +60C; 25W at +85C) and is certified to MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration. Input protection clamps voltages to safe levels while a 10 amp fuse protects the card from overcurrent conditions. Regulation and transient suppression reduce supply ripple and protect the computer circuitry from power source hazards. Input protection guards against input polarity reversal of up to +40 VDC.

VersaLogic products are designed for use by OEMs working in a variety of market applications: Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Industrial, Security, Medical, Military, Robotics, and Transportation. Anywhere that the need for superb quality and high-performance embedded computing exists, applications include: automation, avionics, gateway, in-vehicle, monitoring, simulation, and vision.

VersaLogic delivers extremely reliable standard and customized embedded computers backed with unsurpassed service and the highest availability in the market. VersaLogic exists to exceed customers' product, service, support and delivery needs - whenever and wherever the need arises.
