The VHR Series of DC-DC converters are targetted at non-flight-critical programs in military, avionics, and unmanned systems as well as manufacturing equipment and controls. 

“Engineers aren’t looking for a ‘one converter fits all’ solution, so VPT supplies a wide range of high reliability standard products that best match specific application requirements,” said Monty Pyle, VP of Sales and Marketing at VPT. “Just as space programs use converters designed for rigid MIL specs and radiation exposure, programs on the other end of the spectrum are aligned to solutions, like the VHR Series, that are cost effective and highly reliable without requiring the extensive environmental screening that is necessary for flight-critical programs.” 

The VHR Series design leverages VPT’s experience in military, aerospace and defense solutions and applies this to budget-driven programmes by offering a wide input voltage range for nominal 28 volt input, an average 85% efficiency and low input and output ripple for reliable operational success, even in rugged environments.

Designed to operate at full-load over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +100°C, the VHR Series also offers fixed frequency operation, soft-start, magnetic feedback, inhibit and current-limit protection. The VHR Series also includes companion EMI filters ranging from 1 to 20 A.

The series ranges from the 5 W VHR5 with a 15 – 50 V input and single outputs at 3.3, 5, 7, 12 and 15 V or dual ±5, ±12 and ±15 V outputs, up to a 100 W version with inputs from 16 to 40V, single outputs at  3.3, 5, 7, 12, 15 and 28 V and dual ±12 and ±15 V outputs.

VPT is part of the HEICO Electronic Technologies Group and provides DC-DC power converters, EMI filters, and custom engineering services for avionics, military, high temperature and space applications. The VHR Series of DC-DC converters and EMI filters are available for immediate sale. Unit prices begin at $65 (USD) for volume quantities. Additional information on the VHR Series and specific product datasheets can be found at
