ABB Power Conversion extended its MPR-series rectifier family, adding two 850-watt MPR0812 power supplies. The MPR0812TEX12Z01A leverages forward air flow while the MPR0812TER12Z02A supports reverse air flow. To aid in more power, less space, the rectifiers are designed in a 1.57" high by 9" long by 2.5" wide form. The devices meet Class B radiated and conducted emissions requirements.

Also highlighted on the rectifiers is auto re-boot commands, allowing for off and on with a PMBus command assisting remote system firmware updates. With superior power density, they deliver 20% more power than the 750W MPR0712.

Rectifiers at a Glance:

  • Universal 90-264 volts (V) AC input
  • 12V output voltage
  • 850W output power
  • Efficiencies greater than 90% (Platinum rating)
  • Low fan noise at low load (approximately 15% quieter than MPR712)


  • 12V distributed power architectures
  • Datacom/telecom applications
  • Routers/switches
  • Test and measure equipment
  • 24V industrial applications
  • Audio and video broadcasting
