TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
The HAM Figure 1, consists of a full-wave rectifier, a
high-frequency zero-current switching (ZCS) boost converter,
active inrush current limiting, short-circuit protection, control
and housekeeping circuitry. The incoming AC line is rectified
and fed to the boost converter. The control circuitry varies the
operating frequency of the boost converter to maintain the
output voltage of the HAM above the peak of the incoming
line, while forcing the input current to follow the waveshape
and phase of the line voltage. The AC input current follows the
voltage waveform and a power factor better than 0.99 is
achieved. Operating efficiency of the boost converter is
optimized at any incoming line voltage by an adaptive output
voltage control scheme.

Output Voltage (Vdc)
Rectifier
AC
Line
The output voltage of the HAM varies as a function of
incoming AC line voltage, Figure 3. On a nominal 120 Vac line
the output voltage of the HAM is 260 Vdc — well within the
input operating voltage range of Vicor VI-26x and VI-J6x
converters. As input line increases, so does the HAM output
voltage; at 220 Vac the delivered voltage will be about 350 V.
For any given input line voltage, the HAM maintains enough
headroom between the output voltage and peak input voltage to
ensure high quality active power factor correction without
unnecessarily sacrificing operating efficiency.

PIN FUNCTION / DESCRIPTION
L1 and L2/N (HAM)
An appropriate line filter is required to limit conducted
emissions and ensure reliable operation of the HAM, see
page 8. Connect single phase AC mains to the input of the line
filter via a 10 A, 250 V fuse. Connect the output of the filter to
L1 and L2/N of the HAM. Do not put an X-capacitor across the
input of the HAM or use a line filter with an X-capacitor on its
output as power factor correction may be impacted.
+IN, –IN (HAMD, BAMD)
These pins are connected to the output of the external bridge
rectifier in HAMD / BAMD configurations Figure 5.
GATE IN (HAM)
The user should not make any connection to this pin.
GATE IN (HAMD)
This pin provides line voltage envelope and phase information
for power factor correction. This connection must be made
through the synchronization diodes between the line filter
and bridge rectifier Figure 5.
GATE IN (BAMD)
The Gate In pin is an interface pin to the Gate Out pin of a
HAMD or BAMD depending on configuration. The user should
not make any other connection to this pin.
GATE OUT
The Gate Out pin is a synchronization pin for HAMD/BAMD
arrays; the user should not make any other connection to this
pin.
+OUT and -OUT
Connect the +OUT of the HAM to the +IN of the respective
Vicor DC-DC converters with the recommended fuse. Connect
the -OUT of the HAM to the -IN of the converters. In addition,
an external hold-up capacitor of 1,000 µF with a minimum
voltage rating of 450 Vdc, is required (across the output of the
HAM) for 16 ms ride through time at full power (500 µF for half
power, etc). This capacitor must be in close proximity to the
HAM. Do not exceed 3,000 µF of total output capacitance.
Lower values of capacitance may be used for reduced hold up
requirements, but not less than 500 µF. Lower capacitance
values may degrade power factor specifications.

PIN FUNCTION / DESCRIPTION (CONT.)
A/S
The HAM provides a low voltage non isolated output Auxiliary
Supply (A/S) that may be used to power primary side control
and monitoring circuitry. This output is 19 – 23 Vdc, referenced
to -OUT, at 3 mA max. Do not overload or short this output as
the HAM will fail. A typical use for A/S is to power an optical
coupler that isolates the Power OK signal Figure 6.

E/O
The Enable Output (E/O) is used to inhibit the DC-DC
converters at start up until the hold up capacitors are charged,
at which time Enable is asserted high (open state, Figure 8).
If the AC line fails, E/O goes low when the DC output of the
HAM drops below 195 Vdc.
E/O must be connected to the Gate Input of all VI-26x and
VI-J6x drivers Figure 4; failure to do so may cause the
converters to toggle on and off. It is not necessary to connect
this pin to boosters as they are controlled by their respective
driver. If an external load is connected directly to the output
of the HAM, do not apply the load until the output hold up
capacitor(s) are fully charged.

P/OK
Power OK is a monitor signal that indicates the status of the
AC mains and the DC output voltage of the HAM. P/OK is
asserted (active low) when the output bus voltage is within
normal operating range 20 – 25 ms after DC-DC converters are
enabled by the E/O signal of the HAM. This provides sufficient
time for the converters to turn on and their output(s) to stabilize
prior to P/OK being asserted, Figure 9. For momentary
interruptions of AC power, the HAM will provide at least 16
ms of ride through or hold up time (with 1,000 µF output
capacitor). On loss of power or brownout, (when the HAM
+OUT
D
LOGIC
P/OK
output voltage drops below 230 Vdc) the P/OK signal will go
to an open circuit state, see Figure 7, signaling an impending
loss of input power to the converter modules. P/OK will
provide power fail warning at least 1 ms prior to converter shut
down. When the HAM output voltage drops below 195 Vdc the
converters are disabled via Enable Output (E/O).

A line filter is required to provide attenuation of conducted

line transients. It also presents a well defined high frequency AC
line impedance to the input of the HAM. To meet the listed
specifications, Vicor’s P/N 30205 line filter/transient suppressor
or equivalent must be used, see Figure 10. The addition of a
MOV external to this filter is required to meet normal mode
transient surge requirements.

Figure 10 — Required HAM filter, Vicor part # 30205
For applications using HAMD + BAMD or where the user
desires to construct a custom HAM filter, the filter should be
designed following Figure 10, the schematic of Vicor’s P/N
30205 filter. The current carrying capability of the inductors must
be scaled proportionally to the number of HAM modules used.
Inductance values must be selected according to Table 1. These
limits are to ensure proper operation of the HAM and do not
guarantee a system will meet conducted emissions specifications.

Safety Notes
Each HAM, HAMD or BAMD module must be preceded by
a safety agency recognized fast-blow 10A 3AG fuse.
The HAM is not isolated from the line – either input or
output; a line isolation transformer must be used when
making scope measurements. HAMs do not provide input
to output isolation. Differential probes should be used when
probing the input and output simultaneously to avoid
destructive ground loops.
Protective Features
Over Temperature Shut Down
The HAM is designed to shut down when the temperature of
the baseplate exceeds 90°C. Do not operate the HAM above its
maximum operating temperature of 85°C.
Short Circuit Protection
The HAM contains output short circuit protection. Operation
of this function does not clear the input fuse and the output
will resume normal operation after removal of the fault. A short
period of time may be required to allow for cooling of an
internal temperature sensor.
Output Over Voltage Protection
The HAM contains output over voltage protection. In the event
L1
+IN Vdc, the boost
the output voltage exceeds approximately
420
G
G
will decrease to maintain 420 Vdc on the output. When the
L2/N
–IN
peak of the AC line exceeds 420 V (approximately
293 Vac)
the boost will have been reduced to zero and the E/O line will
