DC/DC Converters offer 4:1 input range.

Press Release Summary:

Encapsulated in DIP24 metal package, JTF12 series is rated 12 W and comprised of 3.3, 5, 12, or 15 Vdc single-output models measuring 1.25 x 0.8 x 0.4 in. JTM20 series, rated 20 W, uses 1 x 2 in. industry-standard mounting format and offers models with dual output voltages of ±5, ±12, or ±15 Vdc. Both series deliver efficiencies up to 91% and have 9-36 Vdc or 18-75 Vdc inputs that cover nominal input voltages of 12, 24, or 48 Vdc. Output voltages are fully regulated.

Original Press Release:

New Compact 12 W & 20 W DC/DC Converters Offer Ultra-Wide 4:1 Input Range

XP Power today announced two additions to their low power DC/DC converter product line-up. Encapsulated in a DIP24 metal package, the 12 Watt JTF12 series measures 1.25 x 0.8 x 0.4 inches (31.75 x 20.32 x 10.4 mm). The 20 Watt JTM20 series uses the 1 x 2 inch (25.40 x 50.80 mm) industry standard mounting format. These new converters offer a high efficiency of up to 91% by using the latest design techniques and components and are suitable for a large variety of applications and products. Additionally, by using popular mechanical formats, these isolated and regulated converters are also ideally suited as low cost drop-replacements for existing designs; saving the need to re-design the PCB layout.

Offering a wide 4:1 input range, both series have 9-36 VDC or 18-75 VDC inputs that cover the nominal input voltages of 12, 24 or 48 VDC. Comprising of single and dual output variants, there are a total of 28 models across the two series. Single output models offer 3.3, 5, 12 or 15 VDC while dual output voltages are +/- 5, +/- 12 or +/- 15 VDC. Output voltages are fully regulated to within +/- 0.5% over all input ranges and to less than +/- 1.0% across all load conditions. Both devices feature an input to output and input/output to case isolation of 1,600 VDC for up to 1 minute.

With a maximum case temperature of +105 degrees C, the units can operate at full output power from -40 degrees C to +60 degrees C without derating. No additional heat sinking or forced airflow is required making the converters suitable for most operating environments.

These highly reliable DC/DC converters comply with MIL-STD-217F for predicted lifetime. The JTF12 has a MTBF in excess of 1 million hours and the JTM20 is rated at 560 thousand hours.

A remote on/off signal is included as standard, allowing engineers to design-in the ability to sequence converter start-up or control the outputs.

Available now from Newark or direct from XP Power. The JTM12 single output units are priced at $32 for a 500pcs order. The JTM2012 dual output model is priced $44 for a 500 pcs order.
