THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - July 17, 2012

Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry's largest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced the expansion of CUI's medical power supply offering to include high-efficiency external medical power supplies and 5 & 10 W encapsulated AC/DC medical power supplies.

"We are pleased to now offer a comprehensive lineup of medical power supplies ranging from 5 W to 365 W through Digi-Key," stated Kraig Kawada, CUI's VP of Product Management. "With these latest releases, I am confident we will be able to address power requirements across a wide variety of medical applications."

CUI's new external medical power supply lineup, including both multi-blade wall and desktop adapters, meets international Level V efficiency regulations and comes with UL/cUL and TUV 60601-1 safety certifications.

The flexible EMMA multi-blade adapter series is designed for global use and includes interchangeable blades for operation in North America, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Australia. These supplies are offered in 15 and 30 W configurations with a number of different output voltage options ranging from 5 to 24 VDC.

The new ETMA desktop adapter series is offered in 30 W, 60 W, 110 W, 200 W, and 250 W configurations for medical designs needing more power than is available in a traditional wall adapter.

The VSKM series of medical AC/DC power supplies, housed in an encapsulated package with pins for direct PCB mounting, is available in 5 W and 10 W configurations. The units are compact, with footprints measuring 2.00" x 1.00" for the 5 W models and 2.10" x 1.12" for 10 W models. This series is suited for a range of low power medical, home healthcare and dental applications, carrying UL/cUL 60601-1 safety certifications, EN55011 class B EMI compliance, and a nominal leakage current of 100 µA at 230 VAC input.

"The medical field is an area in which innovation is almost commonplace. New breakthroughs happen almost daily, and each of these new devices needs to be powered," noted Dave Doherty, vice president, global supplier/product operations at Digi-Key. "These quality power solutions from CUI meet this ever-increasing need, and we are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with such a reputable company."
