New line of DC-DC converters target renewable energy applications

CUI’s Power Group has launched a new line of dc-dc converters ranging from 5W to 40W.

The AE series, available in board mount, chassis mount, and DIN rail mount configurations, offers power ratings of 5W, 10W, 15W and 40W with input voltages up to 1500 Vdc and input ratio ranges up to 10:1.

The series has been designed for reliable operation in renewable energy applications such as solar power equipment, wind turbines, and electric charging stations, and the new models feature 5600Vdc input to output isolation and a wide operating temperature range up to -40 to +70°C at full load.

The series is also rated to operate at up to 5000 meters, allowing it to support remote, high altitude installations.

These isolated dc-dc converters are housed in fully encapsulated packages for use in harsh environments with measurements beginning at 2.75 x 1.89 x 0.93 inches (70 x 48 x 23.50 mm). Output voltage options of 5, 9, 12, 15, and 24Vdc are available, depending on the series, including efficiency ratings up to 84%. Protections for over voltage and over current as well as continuous short circuit with automatic recovery come as standard.

The AE series also carries EN 62109 safety approvals and complies with CISPR22/EN55022 Class A limits for conducted and radiated emissions, while the AE-UW series is designed to meet an additional UL 1741 safety standard.
