XP Power Releases 15 Watt and 30 Watt Ultra Compact DC/DC Converter Range
XP Power today announced additions to its extensive range of ultra compact low power DC/DC converters. The 15 Watt JCM15 comes in a tiny 1" x 1" metal package, with the 30 Watt JCK30 being available in a metal case that measures just 2" x 1". These encapsulated PCB mounted converters accommodate a wide 2:1 input voltage range, accepting either 9 - 18, 18 - 36 or 36 - 75 VDC, covering the nominal inputs of +12, +24 or +48 VDC. Single output models provide +3.3, +5, +12 or +15 VDC, while the duals offer ±5, ±12 or ±15 VDC. All outputs are fully regulated to within ± 0.5% over all input and load conditions for the single output models and less than ± 1.0% for the dual outputs.
The JCK30 can operate at full output power from -40 degrees C to +50 degrees C, and the JCM15 up to +65 degrees C, without derating. With a maximum case temperature of + 105 degrees C, no additional heat sinking or forced airflow is required making the converters suitable for most operating environments.
The convertors feature an input to output and input/output to case isolation of 1,600 VDC for up to 1 minute. Both models feature a remote on/off control line. This can be used to control the output rails or to sequence start-up procedures. All units feature overvoltage and continuous short circuit protection.
Prices range from $34.32 for OEM quantities of single output JCM15 models, to $51.48 for JCK30 dual output models. Both series have a 3 year warranty and are available from Newark or direct from XP Power.
