Encapsulated DC-DC converters, 20-60W rated

May 17, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
XP Power’s DTE series of fully encapsulated single output DC-DC converters comprises three wide input voltage range models offering 20 (DTE20), 40 (DTE40) and 60W (DTE60) output power. The units are available in either a chassis mount or a DIN rail format.

The fully encapsulated package helps protect the converter from environmental factors often found in industrial applications, in addition to aiding heat dissipation. These highly efficient converters, have model-dependent typical efficiency in the range 89 – 92%. The 20W model measures 96.0 x 54.0 x 23.3 mm, the 40W 112 x 63.8 x 25.6 mm and the 60W measures 112.0 x 67.8 x 38.0 mm. Two ultra wide 4:1 input voltage range options are based around (nominal) 24 (9 – 36) and 48 (18 – 75) VDC. Tightly regulated single output voltage options of 5.1, 12, 24 or 48 VDC are available across the range, and isolation is rated at 2500 VDC for 60 seconds.

The DTE series can accommodate a wide range of operating temperatures across the extended industrial range from -40 to +85 degrees C. Full power is available up to a minimum of +70 degrees depending on the model. Compliance to the international safety specification for IT equipment UL/IEC 60950-1 is standard across the range and they all meet the EN55022 Class A limits for both conducted and radiated emissions without the need for any external filtering components.

The units are available from Farnell, element14, Digi-Key, an other distributors, or direct.
