To satisfy customer demand for low power DC-DC converters that can be rapidly mounted onto DIN rails, TDK-Lambda has introduced the DPX Series. Available with both 2:1 and 4:1 input voltage ranges covering 9.5V to 75V and 5 power ranges from 15W and 60W, the new series provides an economical solution for industrial applications such as process control and factory automation, as well as in alarm and security systems.
DPX models are available in single, dual or triple outputs with voltages ranging from 3V3 to 15V. For special applications, selected models can be adjusted manually by using a potentiometer mounted on the front panel. Up to three units can be paralleled for higher power applications and typical efficiency is up to 90%.
The DPX DC-DC converters are enclosed in a rugged metal case and can be mounted on either a TS35/7.5 or TS35/15 standard DIN rail. A green LED indicator on the front panel gives an immediate visual confirmation of the output status. DPX DC-DC converters feature input reverse polarity protection and have 1.6kV input to output isolation.
Convection cooled, the DPX Series from TDK-Lambda operates over a wide temperature range of -40 to +85°C. The series also meets EN55022 class B EMI standards (radiated and conducted), and is CE-marked according to the LV Directive.
