PFC MegaPAC Design Guide
PFC MegaPAC™ Power Factor Corrected AC-DC Switchers
Overview
The PFC MegaPAC family of supplies combine power factor correction (PFC) with the inherent configurability of
all Westcor MegaPAC products. This design guide covers 4 model variations:
1. PFC MegaPAC
1600W max, standard chassis
2. PFC MegaPAC MI
1600W max, rugged COTS chassis
3. PFC MegaPAC High Power
2400W max, standard chassis
4. PFC MegaPAC High Power MI 2400W max, rugged COTS chassis
All PFC MegaPACs have the same input and output connections, mounting points, and the same dimensions:
The extended length (-EL) chassis is covered in a different design guide
A complete power supply is configured at the factory by selecting and inserting up to eight same length slide-in
output assemblies called ConverterPACs. ConverterPACs incorporate one (or more) VI-200/VI-J00), Maxi Vicor
DC to DC converters and/or FlexPACs and are available in a wide selection of output voltage and power levels.
The net result is a power supply that offers the advantages of a custom supply, but is assembled from standard and
modular building blocks. Currently, the standard power chassis uses only FlexPACs and ConverterPACs with VI200/VI-J00 Vicor DC to DC converters while the high power chassis accepts FlexPACs and ConverterPACs with
both VI-200/VI-J00 and/or Maxi module. (Refer to page 7 for a brief overview of the ConverterPACs used.) Using
the PowerBench configurator tool available on vicorpower.com, anybody can now configure a PFC MegaPAC
(and other Westcor power supplies) online.
Manufactured at Westcor, a division of Vicor, the entire family of MegaPAC power supplies is completely userconfigurable. If output requirements change, i.e., more power or a different output voltage is needed, upgrading is
easy: simply unlock a single screw and replace the slide-in ConverterPAC assembly with one that is of the same
length and has the desired voltage power rating. For additional flexibility, ConverterPACs can be connected in parallel to increase output power (booster ConverterPACs), or in series for higher voltages (total output voltage should
not exceed 400V). The driver is to the left of the boosters when looking at the output end of the supply. A userfriendly interface provides control and output sequencing capability (see page 27 for more information about this
capability), in addition to useful status indicators. Please consult our Applications Engineering Department if you
have other special requirements.

PFC MegaPAC Design Guide
Mechanical Considerations
The PFC MegaPAC can be mounted on any of four surfaces using standard 8-32 or 4mm screws. The chassis comes
with four mounting points on each surface; maximum allowable torque is 5.5 lb-in. The maximum penetration is 0.15
in. (3.8mm).
When selecting a mounting location and orientation, the unit should be positioned so air flow is not restricted.
Maintain a 2" minimum clearance at both ends of the PFC MegaPAC and route all cables so airflow is not obstructed.
The standard unit draws air in at the fan side/AC input side and exhausts air out the load side. If airflow ducting is
used, use caution, as sharp turns could present back pressure to the PFC MegaPAC. The fan moves approximately 30
CFM of air.
Avoid excessive bending of output power cables after they are connected to the PFC MegaPAC . For high-current outputs, use cable ties to support heavy cables in order to minimize mechanical stress on output studs. Be careful not to
short-out to neighboring output studs. The PFC MegaPAC units are supplied with serrated, flanged hex-nuts on all
output studs. Therefore, thread locking compounds or lock washers are not required. The maximum torque recommended on flanged nuts is 45 lb-in. Never loosen the inner nut on a ConverterPAC. This nut supports the hardware
inside the ConverterPAC and is factory torqued.
Avoid applications in which the unit is exposed to excessive shock or vibration levels. In such applications, a shock
absorption mounting design is required.

Remote sense should be used:
a) To improve poor output regulation
b) When using older ConverterPACs that do not have the autosense feature.
NEVER connect the remote sense wires in reverse.To avoid failures, always terminate the +Sense to the +Out
and the -Sense to the -Out
If needed, compatible connector kits can be ordered separately. Refer to page 23 for additional information
regarding connector kits
To avoid overheating, NEVER operate the supply with an open output slot. Open slots should always be filled
with a ConverterPAC or a plastic airblock designed for the PFC MegaPAC
Always turn the power supply OFF before disconnecting any input or output wires. Failure to do so may lead to
an electrical shock hazard and or damage to the power supply
Do not insert or remove a ConverterPAC while the power supply is running. They are not designed for hot insertion or extraction
Wait 5 minutes after shutting off the power supply before inserting or removing a ConverterPAC
Do Not restrict airflow to or from the supply as this can cause overheating damage.
Booster ConverterPACs are available for power expansion. Refer to page 6 for additional information
Do Not use boosters as independent outputs. Operating boosters with disconnected bus bars will cause failures
Before turning on the unit ensure all input and output wire are properly connected and all hex nuts properly tightened
Keep output wires as short as possible and run the output (+/-) power cables next to each other. Use twisted pair
wiring whenever possible
Avoid running input and output wiring in close proximity as this may cause noise related problems
PFC MegaPACs are NOT user serviceable. Please contact our customer service department at 1-800-735-6200 for
repair assistance. Please be advised that attempts to repair or modify the power supply will void the warranty
A proper fault protection device (fuse or breaker) should be used in series with the input terminals
Use proper size wires to avoid overheating and excessive voltage drop.
Never loosen the inner nut on a ConverterPAC.
FinPAC ConverterPACs can only be used with a high power chassis. A high power chassis is identified by an
“MX” prefix code in the specific model number
Output voltages over 60Vdc, whether from individual modules or series arrays, are considered as hazardous secondary outputs under UL 60950. Appropriate care must be taken in design implementation of the supply..

PFC MegaPAC Design Guide
Technical Description
The PFC MegaPAC chassis consists of an off-line single phase, power-factor-corrected front end, EMI filter, cooling fan, customer interface and associated housekeeping circuits. Input AC mains voltage (L1, L2 and GND) is
applied to a terminal block. The input current is passed through an EMI filter designed to meet conducted noise
limit “B” specifications of FCC Part 15, VDE 0871, and EN55022 class A At start-up, inrush current is limited by
a PTC thermistor. The PTC is shunted out shortly after initial power-up by a DC bus voltage Sense circuit driving
a relay. After rectification, the input voltage is put through a boost converter that keeps the AC input current sinusoidal and synchronized with the AC input voltage (in compliance with EN61000). The boost converter delivers
regulated high voltage DC to the hold-up capacitors and backplane. The backplane supplies power to a variety of
ConverterPAC assemblies that provide the desired regulated outputs.
Voltage conversion in the output assemblies is achieved by Vicor’s family of Zero-Current-Switching (ZCS) DC to
DC converters. These are forward converters in which the main switching element switches at zero current. This
patented topology has a number of unique attributes: low switching losses; high frequency operation resulting in
reduced size for magnetics and capacitors; excellent line and load regulation; wide adjustment range for output;
low EMI/RFI emissions and high efficiencies.
At initial power-up the PFC MegaPAC outputs are disabled to limit the inrush current and to allow the DC bus
potential to settle out to the correct operating level. A low-power flyback converter operating with PWM currentmode control converts the high voltage DC bus into regulated low voltage to power the internal housekeeping circuits and DC cooling fan. The internal housekeeping Vcc comes up within 2 s after the application of input power.
Once the high voltage bus is within its limits, the AC OK signal asserts to a TTL “1” indicating the input power is
OK, and enables the power outputs. An auxiliary Vcc output of 5 Vdc sourcing up to 0.3A is provided for peripheral use.
An output Enable/Disable function is provided by using an optocoupler to control the Gate In pins of the
ConverterPAC assemblies. If the Enable/Disable control pin is pulled low, the optocoupler turns on, pulling the
Gate In pin low and disabling the ConverterPAC output. The nominal delay for an output to come up when measured from release of the Enable/Disable pin is 10-15 ms. The General Shutdown function controls all outputs
simultaneously and works in a similar manner.
The ride-through (holdup) time is the amount of time the load can be supported before loss of output regulation
after the loss of input power. Detecting the loss of input power takes a finite time period after which the AC Power
OK signal goes from a TTL “1” to “0." This signal is available for use within 1.2 seconds after initial power-up
and can be used to indicate an impending loss of power. At least 3 ms of warning time is given. Following the loss
of input power, the outputs are disabled when the bus voltage drops below its operating threshold.

Configuring and Reconfiguring MegaPACs
Most ConverterPACs of the same length can be inserted into any available slot of a MegaPAC chassis. They can
also be easily added, replaced, or moved by sliding the assemblies in or out of a MegaPAC chassis. (Currently, two
exceptions are the FinPACs which can only be used in the high power chassis and the UniPACs which can only be
used in the 4kW MegaPAC.) For outputs greater than 200 Watts, a driver ModuPAC and one or more booster
ConverterPACs will be used. For outputs greater than 600 Watts, a driver FinPAC and one or more booster
ConverterPACs will be used. Arrays of drivers and boosters should be configured so all boosters are placed in the
slots to the immediate right of the driver when looking at the output end of the MegaPAC.
Prior to removing or installing ConverterPACs, you must remove power from the MegaPAC and wait 5
minutes. Failure to do so can result in personal injury or damage to the supply.
Take standard ESD precautions when handling ConverterPACs.
Removing ConverterPACs
ConverterPACs can be removed by loosening the captive screw at the base. Once this screw has been loosened, the
ConverterPAC will slide out of the chassis. Once a ConverterPAC has been removed, the empty slot MUST be
filled with either another ConverterPAC or an airblock. If the slot is left empty, it will provide an airflow
escape and cause failure to the power supply.
Installing ConverterPACs as Drivers
ConverterPACs can be installed in empty slots by simply sliding in the new ConverterPAC and securing the screw
at the base. Power and interface connections can be made after the ConverterPAC has been installed.
Installing Booster ConverterPACs to Increase Output Power
ConverterPACs can be paralleled for more power. Additional power to an output is obtained by connecting one or
more boosters in parallel with a single driver. The driver can be placed in any open slot. All boosters should be
inserted in the slots to the immediate right of the driver as viewed from the output end of the MegaPAC. Figure 2
shows a driver placed in slots #1 and 3 boosters placed in slots # 2 to 4. After inserting the driver and boosters,
they are paralleled using bus bars across the positive and negative output studs. Drivers should not be paralleled
with each other. Bus bars between a driver and booster (s) should never be disconnected. For help in identifying
boosters and drivers, refer to the Part Numbering section on page 8. Please note that total output voltage should
not exceed the converter baseplate-output isolation rating of 400V. For detailed guideline on how outputs should
be placed in series, please refer to the Applications note (Creating high voltage outputs) available on the website at
www.vicorpower.com.

ConverterPAC Functional Description (See ConverterPAC Datasheet and/or Design Guide for complete information on all ConverterPACs.)
ConverterPACs are the family of slide-in output assemblies used in MegaPAC power supplies. Most ConverterPACs
of the same length are interchangeable within a MegaPAC and between different AC input MegaPAC chassis
(Exceptions are the FinPAC and UniPAC). They can be added, moved, or changed as necessary. The following
ConverterPACs can be used in the PFC MegaPAC and/or PFC MegaPAC-High Power.
Spec sheets for ConverterPACs are available at http://www.vicorpower.com/
ModuPAC
The ModuPAC output assembly consists of a VI-200 DC to DC converter that converts the high
voltage
bus to the desired regulated output voltage. Each ModuPAC can provide up to 200 Watts
+
of power. Multiple ModuPACs can be paralleled in a driver-booster configuration to provide more
_ power. ModuPACs are fused with a PC-Tron, DC-rated, fast-acting fuse. A passive LC filter is used
to reduce output ripple/noise down to 1% typical, and 2% maximum peak-to-peak from 10% to
100% of rated load. An optional DC Power Good signal, or output voltage Trim potentiometer can
be specified. The ModuPAC contains overvoltage protection (OVP), overcurrent protection (OCP),
and overtemperature limiting (OTL). The OCP has automatic recovery when the overcurrent condition is removed. The OVP and OTL are latching functions and require recycling of the AC input
power to restart.

JuniorPAC
JuniorPAC
The JuniorPAC consists of a VI-J00 DC to DC converter that converts the high voltage bus to the
desired regulated output voltage. JuniorPACs can provide up to 100 Watts of output power and are
fused with a single PC-Tron, DC-rated, fast-acting fuse. A passive LC filter is used to reduce output ripple/noise down to 1% typical, and 2% maximum peak-to-peak from 10% to 100% of rated
load. An optional DC Power Good signal or output voltage Trim potentiometer can be specified.
The JuniorPAC contains output overcurrent protection, which recovers automatically when the
overcurrent condition is removed. Overvoltage protection and overtemperature limiting are not
available.

RAMPAC
This output assembly consists of a VI-J00 DC to DC converter with a Ripple Attenuator Module
(RAM) and is designed for applications requiring low output ripple/noise. The RAMPAC can
attenuate the ripple/noise down to 10 mV peak-to-peak over a 20 MHz bandwidth from 10% to
100% of rated load of the converter. Outputs from 5V to 50V are available.
RamPAC
BatPAC
The BatPAC output assembly consists of a VI-200 BatMod current source that converts the high
voltage bus to the desired regulated output voltage. The converter is fused with a PC-Tron, DC_
rated, fast-acting fuse. The BatPAC is a 200 Watts programmable current source that can be configured as a battery charger. Maximum current and voltage settings are controlled using potentiometers that come as a standard feature, or through Trim pin access as an option. BatPACs are
available for 12V, 24V and 48V battery systems.

FINPAC
The FinPAC output assembly consists of a Maxi DC to DC converter that converts the unregulated high voltage bus to the desired regulated output voltage. Each Maxi module can provide up to
600 Watts of output power. Each FinPAC occupies 2 slots because it has an extra large heatsink
attached to dissipate the heat generated by this more powerful Maxi converter. Currently, the
FinPAC is ONLY used in the high power (MX) chassis. It cannot be used in any other member
of the MegaPAC Family. Contact Westcor for future updates.

PFC MegaPAC “Quick Install” Instructions (For Mechanical Drawing, see page 15)
Mounting the PFC MegaPAC and PFC MegaPAC-High Power
* Mount the power supply on any of its four sides.
* Use #8-32 or 4mm mounting screws. Do not exceed a maximum penetration of 0.15"
(3,8mm). The maximum allowable torque is 5.5 lb-in.
* Maintain 2" (5,1cm) clearance at either end for airflow.
Input Connections
Input Power J9
* Apply input AC power to terminal block J9 using a pressure screw terminal.
* Strip length of AC power conductors to be 0.35 inches.
* Maximum torque is 4.4 lb-in.
* Place a fuse or circuit breaker in the input line for safety reasons.
* Use a maximum wire size of 14 AWG with soldered terminals.
* The connector manufacturer recommends the wires not be tinned. A ferrule (Phoenix
P/N 32-00-58-0, purchased from other sources) can be used to prevent fraying.
Output Connections
Power Connections
Installing ring lugs and/or bus bars on output studs:
* The upper stud is Positive and the lower stud is the Return.
* Newer outputs studs are 1/8th inch longer. See pgs. 12 and 19 for more information.
* Remove nut.
* Place ring lug over output stud.
* Replace and tighten outer nut to a maximum torque of 45 lb-in. Do Not OverTighten Nuts.
* Verify all output nuts are properly installed before turning on supply.
Installing power connectors on DualPACs (J1A and J1B):
* Use Molex mating receptacle #39-01-2060 with #39-00-0039 terminals provided.
* Pins 1 and 4 are Positive, while pins 2 and 5 are the Return.

Sense Connections
Note: Newer power supplies have the Autosense feature. For these units, if Remote
Sense connections are not made or needed, no Local Sense selection is necessary - simply connect the output to the load and the unit will automatically operate in Local Sense.
If Remote Sense connections are made, the unit will operate in a Remote Sense mode.
Remote Sense terminals should be terminated to their respective output i.e. - RS to Output and + RS to + Output. See page 13 for more information on Autosense. For
units without Autosense, sense connections must ALWAYS be made. Not connecting
sense lines to their respective output can cause failure to the unit.

Chassis Input Power Terminals (J9)
Input AC power is applied to terminal block J9 using a pressure screw terminal that accepts a maximum wire size
of 14 AWG. The insulation should be stripped .35 inches and the maximum torque applied to the screws should not
exceed 4.4 lb-in. The connector manufacturer recommends the wires not be tinned. A ferrule (Phoenix P/N 32-0058-0, purchased from other sources) can be used to prevent fraying. J9-1 (GND) is Earth Ground for safety; J9-2
(L2) and J9-3 (L1) are the other Hot connections. For Input DC power, L2 is (+) and L1 is (-).
A fault clearing device, such as a fuse or circuit breaker with a maximum 15A rating at the power supply input is
required for safety agency compliance. It should be sized to handle the start-up inrush current of 25A pk at 115
Vrms and 230 Vrms.

Figure 3. Input Panel Connectors
Output Power Connections (+P, -P for Single Output, or J1A/J1B for Dual Outputs)
For single output ConverterPACs, these terminals are two 1/4-20 plated steel studs. The upper stud is positive with
respect to the lower stud. For dual output ConverterPACs, there is a 6-pin Molex connector for each output. J1A
pins 1 and 4 are the +Output, and J1A pins 2 and 5 are the -Output. Pins 3 and 6 are duplicates of the Remote
Sense terminals present on J2A and J2B. Use appropriate wire size rated to handle the full output current, including
short circuit levels. Avoid large current loops in output cables; run power and return cables next to one another to
minimize inductive effects. All outputs are isolated and can provide positive or negative outputs.
Output +/-Sense Connections -J2 for Single Output, or J1A/J1B for Dual Outputs
Newer power supplies may have some outputs configured with the Autosense feature that automatically locally
senses the output if remote sense is not used. To check if an output has the Autosense feature, measure the impedance from the + Out to + Sense and - Out to - Sense pins. If the impedance is 5 ohms, then the output has
Autosense and does not require local sense jumpers. FlexPAC is local sense only
If units do not have Autosense, sense connections must be made. When making sense connections, keep in mind
that although all outputs are open-Sense protected, the +/-Sense terminals MUST be connected to their respective
outputs before the PFC MegaPAC and PFC MegaPAC-High Power are powered up. Regardless of the output polarity configured, the +Sense should always connect to the +Power output. The -Sense connects to the -Power output.
Sense connections are not required on booster ConverterPACs, BatPACs, or if the Local Sense option is specified.
Local Sense mode means that the Remote Sense lines are not connected. Sense pins can be accessed on J1A/J1B
or J2A/J2B on dual output units.
Signal Ground (J10-10)
Signal Ground (see Figure 4 and Connector Pin Identification on page 9) is an isolated ground reference for all J10
interfacing signals, and can be used for ConverterPAC output status signals such as Power Good. This is not the
same as Earth Ground on input power connector J9.

Enable/Disable (J10-1 to J10-8)
The Enable/Disable control pins allow ConverterPAC outputs to be sequenced either on or off. J10-1 through J10-8
are the control pins for output positions 1 through 8, respectively (see Figure 5 and Connector Pin Identification on
page 9). For DualPACs and FlexPACs both outputs are sequenced. In parallel array using VI/VE modules only the
driver ConverterPAC need be controlled. The Enable/Disable pins should be pulled low to less than 0.7V with
respect to Signal Ground to disable the outputs. They will sink 10 mA maximum. These pins should be open circuited or allowed to exceed 4.5V when enabled. Do not apply more than 6V to these inputs at any time. If driven
from an electromechanical switch or relay, a capacitor should be connected to eliminate the effects of switch
bounce.
A TTL "1" applied to the base of the transistor turns
output OFF. Pin 1 (or Pin 12 for GSD) is pulled Low
with respect to Signal Ground.

Figure 5: Enable/Disable and General Shutdown
Enable/Disable control of Maxi/Mini/Micro Module Arrays
When using the Enable/Disable function on an output that consists of two or more Maxi modules, it is necessary to
connect the E/D pins of the corresponding module locations together such that both modules are commanded to
turn ON or OFF simultaneously.
Example:
Slots 2, 4 and 6 have been configured as a single output parallel array (see Fig. 6)
In order to disable the 48V output, E/D 2, E/D 4 and E/D 6 should be shorted together as shown in Fig.6. With
E/Ds connected together, a single switch can then be used to remotely enable and disable the output.
**Note: For single output power supply configurations, the simplest method of remotely enabling and disabling
the output is to use the General Shutdown (GSD) function.

General Shutdown /GSD (J10-12)
The GSD control pin on J10-12 allows simultaneous shutdown of all ConverterPAC outputs (see Connector Pin
Identification on page 9). This pin must be pulled down to less than 0.7V, and will sink 13 mA maximum to shut
down all outputs. The GSD pin should be open circuited or allowed to exceed 4.5V when not in use, or when the
outputs are to be enabled. Do not apply more than 6V to this input at any time. Normal open circuit voltage is 1.5
to 3V with respect to Signal Ground. If driven from an electromechanical switch or relay, a capacitor should be
connected to eliminate the effects of switch bounce.

AC OK / Power Fail (J10-11)
This is an active high TTL compatible signal and provides a status indication of the AC input power (see Figure 7
and Connector Pin Identification on page 9). It is capable of sourcing 0.5mA at >3.2V and sink 16mA at < 0.5V.
This signal switches to a TTL “1” when the high voltage bus exceeds low-line condition during turn-on, and
switches to a TTL “0” 3 ms (minimum) before loss of output regulation due to the loss of input AC power. This
signal can be used to warn external control circuits of an impending loss of power.

The Vcc on J10-9 is an auxiliary 5V regulated power source (see Figure 8 and Connector Pin Identification on

powers user circuitry or is used with the Power Good circuitry to provide a pull-up reference for the outputs of the
DC Power Good circuit on a ConverterPAC. If used for this purpose, the Signal Ground on J10-10 must also be
connected to the J3-1 Signal Ground pin of the ConverterPAC.

The optional Power Good signal on J3-3 is referenced to Signal Ground on J3-1, and indicates the status of the output voltage. This signal is asserted a TTL “1” when the output voltage is above 95% of nominal. It is a TTL “0”
when the output voltage is below 85% of nominal. If the Trim option is also used, the Power Good trip points DO
NOT track with the trimmed voltage. It is possible to trim the output below the fixed setpoints of the Power Good

Vcc In (J3-4)
The Vcc In on J3-4 is an input that requires +5V either from the J10 Auxiliary Vcc, or from another source. Input
current to this pin is limited by an internal resistor to 3 mA. If the J10 Auxiliary Vcc is connected to Vcc In on J34, then the J10 Signal Ground must be connected to Signal Ground on J3-1.
+Sense/–Sense - J2-2 and J2-3 (See page 10 and 13 for information on Autosense)
The +Sense on J2-2 should be connected to the +Power Out, and the –Sense on J2-3 to the –Power Out terminal.
Do not reverse or leave the Sense pins open. Sense pins can be terminated locally at the output of the power
supply, in which case the power supply will provide regulation at the output terminals. The voltage appearing at the
load may drop slightly due to voltage drop in the power cables. If it is necessary to compensate for voltage drop
along the output power cables, this termination should be made close to the output load. Compensation of up to
0.5V (0.25V per lead) can be obtained. Use twisted pair 22-24 AWG wire for this purpose.
For DualPACs, the +Sense pins are available on connectors designated as J2A-2 and J2B-2 for outputs A and B,
respectively. –Sense pins are on J2A-3 and J2B-3, respectively. These pins are also duplicated on the power connectors J1A and J1B.
Reminder: Only units with Autosense will automatically operate in Local Sense mode if no sense connections
are made. It will operate in remote sense mode if remote sense connections are made. Units without
Autosense MUST have sense connections (Local or Remote) terminated to their respective output for the
unit to operate properly.

External Trim (J2-1)
Output voltage can be trimmed using an optional factory-installed Trim potentiometer or with the Trim pin (see
Figure 11). The Trim potentiometer is located on the ConverterPAC. If the Trim potentiometer has not been
ordered, the Trim pin must be used. When using the Trim pin, the Trim limits are determined by the DC/DC converter used on the ConverterPAC. Maximum Trim ranges are 10% above the nominal converter voltage and 50%
below the nominal converter voltage (except 10V, 12V and 15V outputs which are 10% below nominal) as measured from the output studs or output connector of the power supply.
Note: The combined effects of module trim up, remote sense and dynamic load step may cause the module to trip
OVP. (See page 7 for information on restart).
The Trim pin on J2 can be used to control the output voltage. It is referenced to the -Sense pin on J2 and can be
controlled by either a resistor network or an external voltage source. To increase an output voltage above its nominal, it is necessary to increase the voltage at the Trim pin above the internal reference voltage (Vref). The reverse is
true to decrease an output voltage.
Note: Converters are sometimes pre-trimmed at the factory if a nonstandard output voltage is requested. Standard voltages
include 2V, 3.3V, 5V, 10V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 28V, and 48V. If using a nonstandard voltage, or if a ConverterPAC is ordered with a
Trim option, the resistor calculations will differ from those on page 17. Please consult the factory for assistance.

Table 1. Module Internal Reference Voltages and Thevenin Resistances.
Example:
±10% Trim adjust on a 12V nominal output.
Figure 11 shows a typical variable Trim circuit. Using a 10k trimpot (R7), the resistor values for R6 and R8 can be calculated as follows:
V1= Vref + 10% = 2.75V
Given: Vref = 2.5V (see Table 1)
IR5 = (2.75V - Vref)/RTH = (2.75V - 2.5V)/10kΩ = 25μA
Setting the bottom limit:
VR6 = 2.5V - 10% = 2.25V
And since IR5 = IR6 = 25μA,
R6 = VR6/IR6= 2.25V/25μA = 90kΩ
V2 = V1 + VR6 = 2.75V + 2.25V = 5V
IR7 = V2/R7 = 5V/10kΩ = 500μA
IR8 = IR7 + IR6 = 525μA
VR8 = (Vnom +10%) - V2 = 13.2V - 5V = 8.2V
Given: Vnom = 12V
R8 = VR8/IR8 = 8.2V/525μA = 15.62kΩ
Using the above resistor combination, a 12V output can be trimmed externally up to 13.2V and down to 10.8V. For further
information on external trimming, refer to Chapter 5 of the Applications Design Guide or consult the factory for assistance.

New, more robust output studs (with a 3 to 1 safety margin @ 45 in. lbs.) were installed in ConverterPACs,
the slide-in assemblies used in the MegaPAC Family. These new outputs studs are 1/8" longer to allow for multiple
lugs. They are fully compatible with the original flanged nut ConverterPACs for use in parallel arrays. Other advantages include:
•
Inner nut (that might become loose) replaced by a brass insert
•
Stronger connection to the PCB
•
Improved conductivity (less voltage drop and heating)
•
Both the stud and panel are less likely to break due to over torqueing
Shown below are the original and re-designed studs.

Current Share Boards - Optional Feature
"Current sharing" also known as Load Sharing,
is the ability to divide the output current evenly
across all active power supplies. This greatly
reduces stresses on each power supply and
allows them to run cooler, resulting in higher
reliability. Standard "current sharing" techniques typically utilize shunt resistors or Hall
Effect devices to measure the current from each
power supply. Power shunt resistors continually
dissipate power and require cooling especially
when dealing with high output currents of
>100Amps. Hall Effect devices measure magnetic fields generated by current flowing through
a conductor and, although they dissipate no
power, they tend to be large and expensive.

First developed by Westcor Engineering for paralleling MegaPAC supplies, the Box-to-Box
Current Share Board or CSB allows two or more
Vicor power supplies to current share by utilizing the inherent voltage drop produced in the negative
output return cable. This eliminates the need for additional shunt resistors or expensive Hall Effect devices
and provides a simple 5 wire connection method to
achieve a +/-1mV accuracy between the Negative Output
power rails. This accuracy translates to a 1% current
sharing if there is a total of 100mV conductional voltage
drop in the negative return path.
Constructed as a current source to drive the Trim pin of
a Vicor module, the design uses an accurate comparator
circuit to monitor the power returns. In addition, the circuit is unidirectional and can only trim an output voltage
up. The benefit is that only the supply that is supporting
less current is adjusted up. This action balances the currents to the load by matching the output voltages of the
supplies. In the case of one supply failing, the circuit
will attempt to trim the failed supply only. This will
leave the remaining functional supply alone to provide
power to the load at its nominal voltage. Thus the circuit
also offers simple redundancy. In addition, because CSB
functions as a current source, the Trim outputs (T1 and
T2) of the CSB can be placed in parallel to create a summing node. This allows current sharing between more
than two supplies by paralleling the T2 output of one
CSB circuit with the T1 output of the next CSB.
Please note: The CSB is not intended for use in Hotswap
Applications.

Figure 1. CSB Interconnect Example
Requirements:
1. For proper operation, the power supplies being paralleled should be enabled at the same time.
2. -Out conductors must be of equal length and wire
gauge.
Separate -Out conductors must be used from each supply
to the load, or the use of a "Y" connection to a common
point
must be used as shown in figure 1. Each leg of the "Y"
must have a minimum of a few millivolts of drop in order
for proper operation. 50mV to 100mV of drop will provide from 5% to 1% accuracy.
3. -V1 and -V2 for all Box-to-Box circuits must be connected directly at the negative output power studs or terminals to achieve accurate current sharing.
4. D* can be added if redundancy is needed. If redundancy is not required, D* can be replaced with direct
wire connections.
5. When using D*, the Power input should be connected
on the cathode side of the paralleling diodes as shown
above.
6. Terminate Sense Leads either locally or remotely as
shown in figure 1.
7. For paralleling more than 2 supplies consult factory
for assistance.

PFC MegaPAC Design Guide
Low Leakage Version
If Low Leakage is required, the MegaPAC Family of Power Supplies has a model variant (must be requested). This
model enables the user to meet various additional specifications. Presently, the PFC MegaPAC, Mini MegaPAC and
Autoranging MegaPAC are available in Low Leakage versions. Other models can be made available. The MegaPAC
Family of Power Supplies consist of:
•

•
•
•
PFC MegaPAC
PFC MegaPAC-High Power
PFC MegaPAC-EL (Low Noise)
Mini MegaPAC
Autoranging MegaPAC
4kW MegaPAC
4kW MegaPAC-EL (Low Noise)
The advantage of the Low Leakage MegaPAC power supply is in multiple power supply systems that have one AC
input. This option will lower the input leakage current for these products to 100μA or less. An additional external
EMI filter is typically required.
How Low Leakage is obtained
Low Leakage for the MegaPAC Family of power supplies is obtained with the removal of the "Y" capacitors from
within the EMI filter of the MegaPAC as well as the "Y" capacitors on the input of the ConverterPACs*. This reduces
the leakage current from the AC input to AC ground (chassis) to below 100μA (leakage value may differ with use of
Maxi modules.. Consult Factory for more information.) At the same time, since the "Y" capacitors are a vital component of the EMI filter, without them, the EMI will go up. When this happens, the unit will no longer meet
Westcor’s published specifications for conducted EMI. In order to reduce the EMI to within an acceptable limit, an
additional external EMI filter is required. All safety agency certifications for the MegaPAC Power Supplies remain
intact**. Contact Applications Engineering for more information.

Output Sequencing
Using the MegaPAC's standard Input Interface Connector (J10) along with the ConverterPAC's optional DC OK
Option*, it is possible to implement unique output voltage power up and power down sequences. Below is an example showing how this may be done.
* DC OK Option is not available for VI-200/VI-J00 dual output DualPACs
Requirement: 5V must start before the 3.3V output. If the 5V output is lost, the 3.3V output must turn off.
The first step in meeting this require+ Vout
ment is to configure the 5V ModuPAC

Figure 3. Output Sequencing Wire Interconnect
Figure 3 shows the correct wiring connections between the Power Good Connector (J3) of a 5V ModuPAC and the
Input Interface Connector (J10) of a typical PFC MegaPAC configuration. In this example, the 3.3V ModuPAC is
located in the slot #7 and the 5V ModuPAC (with the DC OK option) is located in slot #8. In order for the Power
Good option to properly function, it requires a 5V source to provide the necessary Vcc pull up. This 5V source is
conveniently available using the +5V aux source from the Input Interface Connector (J10-9 and J10-10). With a Vcc
voltage properly applied to the 5V ModuPAC's Power Good Connector (J3-1 and J3-4), the Power Good signal (J33) can now be connected to the Enable/Disable control pin for slot #7 (J10-7). The 5V ModuPAC's Power Good signal will remain low until its output has reached approximately 95% of its nominal output voltage. This will keep the
3.3V output in disabled mode, allowing the 5V output to reach regulation first. In addition, should the 5V output
drop below 85% the Power Good signal will drop low and disable the 3.3V output. Figure 4 and 5 show the startup
and shutdown waveforms for the circuit shown in Figure 3.
