BLACKSBURG, Va., 23 April 2010. VPT Inc., a HEICO company in Blacksburg, Va., is introducing five rugged DC-DC power converters with output voltages that satisfy the reliability requirements and varying output voltage needs of avionics and military electronics.

The power electronics modules now available are the DVFL single-output, 120-Watt, 6.3-, 7-, 8-, 9.5-, 18-, and 28-volt models; DVFL, dual- output, 120-Watt, 6.3- and 9.5-volt models; DVTR, single-output, 40-Watt, 7-, 8-, 18-, and 28-volt models; DVTR, dual-output, 40-Watt, 8- and 18-volt models; and DVHF, single-output, 20-Watt, 5.7- and 18-volt models.

"We've optimized these modules to fit the needs of today's commercial and military avionics instrumentation such as navigation and guidance systems, flight data recorders, radar, and other demanding applications," says Michael Bosmann, senior vice president of marketing and sales at VPT.

All three DC-DC power converter families are designed and manufactured in facilities qualified to ISO9001 and certified to MIL-PRF-38534 Class H and Class K and MIL-STD-883.

Optimized for absolute reliability for the demanding environments of avionics and military applications, all of these new DC-DC converters feature high power densities, extremely small sizes, and light weights for aircraft use; thick-film hybrid construction in hermetic packaging; full military required temperature ranges of -55 to 125 degrees Celsius; critical reliability performance; wide input voltage ranges; high efficiencies; low output noise; and fault tolerant design with patented technology.

Environmental screening that ensures rugged performance through extreme temperature cycling, shock, vibration, salt atmosphere, barometric conditions and moisture and solvent resistance. For more information contact VPT online at www.vpt-inc.com.
