MTM Power Introduces PCMDS150WK-IP65 DC/DC Converters for IP65 Applications


The primary-switched DC/DC converters PCMDS150WK-IP65 from MTM Power are specially designed for applications in vehicle and rail technology, as well as industrial and telecommunication applications.

The push-pull topology used while developing these converters enables a wide input voltage range with high efficiency. The 150W converters are available with a wide input range for battery voltages of 24V, 36V, 48V, 60V, 72V, 80V, 96V and 110V according to EN 50 155. With the help of a transformer and a secondary linear choke, a galvanically isolated output voltage of 24V is produced and adjusted by pulse-width modulation, according to the current mode principle. The dimensions are 192mm x 115mm x 68mm.

The thermoselective vacuum encapsulation guarantees uniform heat dissipation within the modules, as well as excellent resistant against environmental influences such as shock, vibration and moisture. A remarkable feature of the converters is that they are suitable for applications with protection degree IP65 and as a result, they comply with EN 60 068-2-1/2-2/2-11/2-14/2-30 standards.

The converters need no ground load and are short-circuit protected by primary and secondary power limiting. The converters are maintenance-free, prepared for the use in devices with Protection Class II and fulfill the low voltage directive. They show a mechanically and electrically rugged design using SMD technology and undergo an automatic piece-by-piece test. Cooling is achieved by free convection.
