Absopulse Electronics presents the BKP 419-EH, a rugged, industrial quality DC/DC plug-in (Eurocard) converter that uses field-proven technology to generate up to 1500W output power, depending on the cooling method employed.

The natural air convection cooled version generates 1000W and the unit with forced-air cooling by system fans generates up to 1500W. Heat generating components are installed on aluminium heatsink blocks, which are connected to the heatsink fins on the side of the module, ensuring excellent heat dissipation.

This compact plug-in module measures 4U x 16HP x 12in and is typically used in 19in rack-mount applications. The standard version can be operated from a 125Vdc (105–140V range) line voltage and delivers a single output of either 24Vdc or 48Vdc. Other input and output voltages are available on request. A built-in redundancy diode allows for parallel connection or N+1 redundant operation, including hot-insertion. The front panel of the module has an output voltage ‘ON’ LED indicator, voltage adjustment potentiometer and test points.

Designed for heavy-duty industrial environments, the BKP 419-EH meets IEC 61371 Categories 1 A & B shock and vibration standards, with additional ruggedising and conformal coating available as an option. The module supports input and output filtering in compliance with EN55022 EMI standards. Full electronic protection eliminates the possibility of failure due to abnormal operating conditions, including application errors.
