PCB power: 20 W ac-dc power supply on printed circuit boards
Compact PCB-mountable 20-watt ac-dc power supply has one output series, accepts a wide input voltage range, has a low profile (0.79-in.), and industry standard footprint (2-in. x 3.5-in.).
San Diego, CA – Lambda Data sheets are available for the Lambda ZPSA Series of power supplies
They are available with the most popular output voltages including 3.3 V, 5 V, 9 V, 12 V, 15 V, or 24 V dc. Floating outputs can be used as either a positive or negative polarity. Typical efficiencies go up to 82%. These models are rated for operation in a convection cooled environment from 0 °C up to 70 °C with derating. A green LED indicates that the power supply is on. Other standard features include overvoltage and short-circuit protection.
To maximize design-in flexibility, the power supplies are available in an open-board configuration with Molex input/output connectors, or as a “/P” version with pins for PCB mounting.
Accepting a wide input voltage range of 85-264 V ac, the ZPSA20 series can be used globally without further configuration or input selection. Lambda says the industry standard footprint makes it an ideal choice as a drop-in replacement for existing supplies; low profile means that it can be installed in compact applications. Safety agency approvals include UL/CSA/EN60950-1; it meets conducted and radiated EMC requirements of EN55022-B/FCC Class B (without additional filtering or components) and EN61000-4 immunity specs for greater reliability. All supplies carry the CE Mark and are RoHS compliant, company says.
Prices start at $12.50 each in 1,000 piece quantities. Lambda Americas is a unit of TDK Corp.
Lambdalatest compact PCB-mountable 20-watt ac-dc power supply is a single output ZPSA20 series, which accepts a wide input voltage range, has a low profile (0.79-in.) and industry standard footprint (2-in. x 3.5-in.). Applications include printed circuit boards (PCBs) for industrial computing, test and measurement equipment, computer peripherals, datacom, telecom, point-of-sale equipment, LED signs and lighting, and video/audio routers.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
