POWER ELECTRONICS: DC-DC converters for robotics and test introduced by TDK Lambda

TDK-Lambda Americas Inc. in San Diego is introducing the iQG series of DC-DC converters for intermediate or distributed bus power architectures in applications such as robotics, industrial controls, test and measurement, data communications/telecom, and wireless/broadcast.

The power electronics device is 0.52 inch high, designed for use in confined space and demanding thermal environments, and provides a regulated 12-volt DC output with a high-isolation of 1500 volts DC, input to output. In addition, they operate with inputs from 36 to 75 volts DC. The user can select from models rated at 300 or 400 watts. The converter's efficiencies of as much as 95 percent substantially minimize wasted heat and system cooling issues. The device is compatible with conduction, convection, and forced-air cooling, and has a baseplate temperature range of -40 to 125 degrees Celsius.
