New DC-DC Converters with Input Voltage Ranges of 9 to 36VDC or 18 to 75VDC

Press Release Summary:

  • Available in compact size of 2” x 1”
  • Operates with case temperature of -40°C to +105°C
  • Applications include industrial control, telecom/datacom, test, measurement and battery-operated equipment

Original Press Release:

4:1 Input 40W and 60W DC-DC Converters have a 2�x1� Footprint and Six-Sided Shielding for Reduced Radiated EMI

TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) announces the introduction of the 40W and 60W rated TDK-Lambda PXD series of 2”x1” DC-DC converters. Capable of operating from a wide input voltage of 9 to 36Vdc or 18 to 75Vdc, these converters have a copper case providing six-sided shielding for reduced EMI, simplifying system compliance. Industrial control, telecom/datacom, test, measurement and battery-operated equipment are some of the many applications for the PXD.

The PXD40 and PXD60 converters comprise of 3.3, 5, 12, 15, 24 and 48Vdc single outputs, and ±12, ±15 and ±24Vdc dual output voltages. Using the trim function, the single output models can be adjusted to compensate for voltage drops or to accommodate non-standard system voltages. The wide input ranges can assist with inventory reduction programs with one part number covering multiple nominal voltages.

All models have a negative logic remote on/off function as standard, which can be used to reduce the input current to a low 3mA to prolong battery life for portable equipment in stand-by mode. No minimum loading is required, and the converters are protected against output-overvoltage, overcurrent and overtemperature conditions.

With efficiencies of up to 93%, power losses are minimized allowing the products to operate with a case temperature of -40°C to +105°C. Output power derating can be reduced with the use of optional heatsinks and/or system airflow.

All models carry the CE and UKCA marks for the Low Voltage and RoHS Directives and are certified to the IEC/UL/CSA/EN 62368-1 safety standards. The series has an input to output and input to case isolation of 1,600Vdc.
