DS Short Series Server and Networking Power Supplies

DS Short Series AC-DC Distributed Power Front-End Power Supplies

  • Common Form Factor
  • Digital Control (PMBus®)
  • 500-2000 W High Density & Reliability
  • Market-Leading Efficiency
  • AC and DC Input Options


The latest Artesyn DS series AC-DC power supplies in the short form factor are designed to provide a scalable input power conversion solution for computing, storage and networking equipment that uses distributed power architectures (DPA) and intermediate bus architectures (IBA).

The range is housed in an industry-standard 1U high by 86mm wide form factor with individual power ratings 

from 500 to 2,000 watts and a roadmap for higher power models. This gives you the flexibility to select the model with the power rating you need today and adjust for lower or higher power needs across your product range or as you develop future generations of your products.

With a power density up to 50 W/in3 and efficiency ranging from 90 to 94% peak, you can be confident that you are getting a best-in-class power conversion solution whichever model in the range you select.

Many of the models in this range are available with AC or DC input options, which means you can specify the same power supply for deployment in environments from enterprises, traditional data centers, -48Vdc data centers or telecom central offices. The DC input option can also be used to power redundant equipment powered from battery backups.

Artesyn DS Short Series power supplies generate a main payload output of 12 Vdc for feeding downstream dc-dc converters in systems using distributed power architectures, together with a 12 Vdc standby output for power management circuitry.

Active current sharing helps maximize cost-effectiveness by eliminating the need for additional components when paralleling multiple power supplies for very high current applications. These hot-pluggable power supplies support N+1 or N+N redundant architectures.

All AC-input models in the range are certified for 80PLUS Platinum level efficiency, peaking at 94%, and offer low total harmonic current distortion (EN61000-3-2).

Digital control using the PMBus® protocol and a built-in I2C serial interface facilitates remote set-up, monitoring and control using Artesyn Embedded Power' universal PMBus graphical user interface. This programming flexibility enables users to implement sophisticated power management schemes with minimal additional components.

All models offer overcurrent, over-voltage, under-voltage, over-temperature and fan fault protection. Most models offer standard or reverse airflow options.
