BLACKSBURG, Va., 13 Sept. 2012. VPT Inc. in Blacksburg, Va., is introducing the VPT30-2800T triple-output DC-DC converter to power electronics in military vehicles, ships, weapons, and other rugged embedded systems.

The commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) military power supply delivers as much as 30 Watts, meets several military standards, and features three outputs to power several different loads from one small module.

The VPT30-2800T power electronics device is a step down converter delivering as much as 30 Watts from three independent, isolated outputs; input voltage range of 9 to 80 volts per MIL-STD-704 and MIL-STD-1275; input transient voltage of 100 volts for 1 second per MIL-STD-704 and MIL-STD-1275; and operates in temperatures from -55 to 100 degrees Celsius.

“Our new VPT30 offers three independent and isolated outputs with a power capability of up to 15 Watts each supporting multiple loads from one module," says Monty Pyle, vice president of sales and marketing for VPT. "Additionally, built-in compliance reduce the component count and cost in power systems for armored vehicles where space is at a premium yet military standards are imperative."

The internally conformal coated device measures 1.325 by 1.885 by 0.4 inches, and weighs 50 grams. It offers environmental screening to JESD22, MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-883, J-STD-001, ISO-9001, and IPC-A-610.
