To further extend the SKM Series of DC-DC Converters Meanwell have launched SKM50 Series, a range of 50W Miniature Regulated DC-DC Converters, offering 2:1 wide input range in either 18 ~ 36VDC or 36 ~ 75VDC.
These converters are ideal for use where there are limitations to the space available for install due to the miniature 2″ x 1″ size and high power density of 46.3W/in3; the units are also fully encapsulated in a six sided metal case which helps the unit withstand influence of dust and moisture in the install environment.
SKM50 Series utilise the most up to date “Active-Clamp” circuit design to generate 92% high efficiency and in turn possess full load operation, using free air convection, at ambient temperatures of -4C to +55C; the units can even operate at temperatures up to +75C if the output is de-rated.
Other standard features of these regulated single output DC-DC converts include low ripple noise, built-in remote ON/OFF control, output trimming (±10%), 1500VDC input/output isolation and short circuit, over load, input and output over voltage protections.
This DC-DC converter series comply with CE & FCC Class A requirements without the need to add extra EMC suppression components, generating cost savings and significantly reducing potential EMC compatibility issues at system level. Suitable applications include industrial control, telecommunication, datacommunication, distributed power architecture, or vehicle/vessel back-up systems, as well as any applications that may use rechargeable batteries as the power source.
