SAN DIEGO – TDK-Lambda Americas Inc. in San Diego is introducing the PH600A280-24 DC-DC converter for high-voltage direct current (HVDC) equipment in data communications, high-voltage power transmission, renewable energy applications, robot controllers and factory automation.
Rated at 24 volts and 600 Watts, the PH600A280-24 is certified to the Over Voltage Category III safety standard EN 62477-1. It does not require an isolation transformer on the distribution panel, reducing cost, size, and weight.
The PH600A280-24 DC-DC converter accepts a wide range of 200-to-425-volt-DC inputs delivering 24 volts at 12.5 amps. The output voltage can be set between 14.4 and 28.8 volts using the trim terminal.
With an efficiency of 93 percent, the module can operate at full load with baseplate temperatures of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius, derating linearly to 80 percent load at 100 C.
Conduction cooling through the baseplate enables designers to use the PH-A for communications and similar applications in outdoor sealed enclosures or liquid-cooled equipment.
The half-brick package measures 61 by 12.7 by 57.9 millimeters, and has remote on-off, over-current, and over-voltage protection. Input to output isolation is 3,000 volts AC and is safety certified to IEC/EN/UL/CSA 62368-1, EN 62477-1 (OVC III) with CE marking for the Low Voltage and RoHS directives.
