Power supply

From Wiki for iCub and Friends
Jump to: navigation, search

iCub uses two power supplies by Xantrex for the 12V and the 48V supplies respectively. Any other voltage required is generated internally (e.g. 5 and 3.3V)
The following table summarizes the specific power supplies currently employed.

IIT CODE Description Manufacturer Manuf. code Supplier Suppl. Order code Suppl. Phone number Suppl. Email/Website
205 XFR-1.2Kw-35-35, Xantrex - Power supply, 1,2 Kw, 0-35V, 0-35A, 44x430x509mm, 8.2kg, 19" rack mount, 1U Xantrex XFR-1.2Kw-35-35 DQM-Yokogawa XFR-1.2 Kw-35-35 +39 0125 564051 DQM s.r.l.
206 XFR-2.8Kw-60-46, Xantrex, - Power supply, 2,8 Kw, 0-60V, 0-46A, 89x430x534mm, 15kg, 19" rack mount, 2U Xantrex XFR-2.8Kw-60-46 DQM-Yokogawa XFR-2.8Kw-60-46 +39 0125 564051 DQM s.r.l.

Since 2014, we've moved to a more silent and unique solution for the power supplies. Those apparels are coupled thanks to a little addon board we realized here in IIT. The specification of this new power supply are listed below:

IIT CODE Description Manufacturer Manuf. code Supplier Suppl. Order code Suppl. Phone number Suppl. Email/Website
2962 Power supply, 1500W, 0-80V, 0-60A, 88x480x460mm, 13.5kg, 19" rack mount, 2U Elektro-automatik EA-PS 8080-60 2U RS COMPONENTS S.P.A. 673-6749 RS Components International
