Exploring Different Testing Methods for Switching Power Supplies with MIJI

In our modern world, switching power supplies, such as those offered by MIJI, have become integral to our daily lives and industrial processes. Renowned for their energy efficiency, environmental friendliness, and cost-effectiveness, they’ve swiftly replaced the bulky and inefficient “linear power supplies” of the past. But how do we ensure the reliability and safety of these essential components? Let’s delve into the various testing methods for switching power supplies:

12v 60w 5
  1. Repeated Short-Circuit Test

    Description: This test involves repeatedly short-circuiting the module output under different input and output conditions to ensure its protection and recovery mechanisms are functioning properly.

    Procedure: From no-load to short-circuit and from full-load to short-circuit, the module should protect itself and return to normal operation.

    Criteria: The module should operate normally after the test.

  2. Repeated On/Off Test

    Description: With a significant load, this test varies the input voltage between 220v, overvoltage point, and undervoltage point to assess the power supply module’s repetitive on/off function.

    Procedure: The input voltage is alternated within specified limits while observing the module’s performance.

    Criteria: The module should operate normally after the test.

  3. Low-Voltage Input Cycling Test

    Description: This test evaluates the module’s undervoltage protection setting by repeatedly starting up under low-voltage conditions.

    Procedure: Slowly changing the input voltage within specified limits while the module is under full load.

    Criteria: The module should operate stably without significant changes in function.

  4. Transient High-Voltage Input Test

    Description: This test assesses the module’s stability under transient high-voltage conditions.

    Procedure: Applying a transient high voltage to the input and observing the module’s response.

    Criteria: The module should operate stably without damage or abnormal behavior.

  5. Input Voltage Drop and Output Dynamic Load Test

    Description: This test evaluates the module’s performance under varying input voltages and dynamic loads.

    Procedure: Adjusting the input voltage and load conditions to observe the module’s behavior.

    Criteria: The module should operate without damage or significant changes in function.

  6. High-Voltage No-Load and Low-Voltage Full-Load Test

    Description: This test assesses the module’s performance under high-voltage no-load and low-voltage full-load conditions.

    Procedure: Adjusting the input voltage and load conditions as specified to observe the module’s behavior.

    Criteria: The module should operate without damage or significant changes in function.

Conclusion:

Switching power supplies, like those offered by MIJI, serve critical functions across diverse industries, including industrial automation, military equipment, LED lighting, and telecommunications. Understanding and rigorously testing these power supplies ensure their reliability, safety, and compliance with industry standards. By employing thorough testing methods, MIJI can deliver high-quality products that meet the demands of modern applications.
