DC/DC Converters feature touch-safe design.

Press Release Summary:



Packing characteristics of 110 V power supply into 6 mm wide DIN-rail terminal block, 859 Series eliminates redundant power supplies for 5–12 V applications, including running 24 Vdc sensors and other controls on battery power. All models feature short-circuit protected outputs, reverse voltage protection, and TVS diode protection. Line regulation from 0.5–2%, varying by model, ensures power consistency, while efficiency up to 85% limits heat generation and power draw.

WAGO Compact DIN-Rail DC/DC Converters



GERMANTOWN, WI – WAGO Corporation’s Engineering Services Division has developed DC/DC Converters that pack the characteristics of a 110 V power supply into a 6mm-wide DIN-rail terminal block. Traditionally, driving low-current circuits, e.g., analog transducers at 10 V, within a control panel requires an extra 110 V power supply. The 859 Series DC/DC Converters eliminate redundant power supplies for 5–12 V applications, including running 24 VDC sensors and other controls on battery power.



The touch-safe, 859 Series DC/DC Converters may also trim safety-related expenses. Engineering Services manager, Carey Perschke, explains that costs increase exponentially when isolating control panel segments for low-voltage circuits.  



“Power supplies require safety-related items such as touchguards and requisite labeling,” Perschke says. “The DC/DC converters enable the input/output to reside in the panel’s low-voltage portion. Snap them on DIN-rail like terminal blocks — no extra protective measures required.”



All 859 Series DC/DC Converters feature short-circuit protected outputs, reverse voltage protection (input) and TVS diode protection. Line regulation from 0.5% to 2% (varies per model) ensures power consistency. Efficiency up to 85% limits heat generation and power draw. Manufactured at WAGO’s Germantown, headquarters, select units carry UL 508. Models: 24 V/ 5 V (0.5A DC), 24 V/10 V (0.5A DC), 12 V/24 V (0.25A DC) and 24 V/12 V (0.5A DC). Contact factory for custom voltage ranges.



WAGO is the leader in spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections. Products: DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM and more.
