Disinfecting robots

Some mobile robots need to be connected to a base station via a tether cable. In applications such as underwater inspection, the tether allows for extended operation and high-bandwidth data transfer from cameras in otherwise noisy and harsh environments. The thinner and lighter the cable, the further and longer these robots can operate, but thinner cable limits power delivery from traditional PDNs. Vicor’s modular approach enables higher voltages to be transmitted over the cable, reducing the cable size and weight without compromising power. The small size and low weight of Vicor modules also makes the robots lighter and able to increase payloads.

The power delivery network

Vicor ZVS buck and buck-boost regulators provide efficient, lightweight, and compact regulation to support a wide range of loads. This design shows the battery’s 24V being regulated to drive pumps, fans, sensors, and controllers ranging from 3.3V to 24V. Vicor’s modular approach to PDNs results in high-efficiency (>95%) and less space required compared to traditional DC-DC converters and regulators handling high power requirements.
