Artesyn’s New Industrial DC-DC Converters

Artesyn's latest AXA series 20W high density DC-DC converters are designed for industrial and rugged applications where space is at a premium. An ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage range is available in single or dual output models. Standard -40°C to +85°C operation can be extended by using an optional clip-on heat sink. The Artesyn AXA series offers up to 89% efficiency in a 1x1 inch fully potted and metal cased package.

Artesyn Embedded Technologies, formerly Emerson Network Power's Embedded Computing & Power business, announced the new AXA series of compact 20 W high power density dc-dc converters designed to be used in applications such as battery-operated equipment, instrumentation, distributed power architectures in communications and industrial electronics and other space critical-applications.

A fully potted and metal cased construction makes the Artesyn AXA series an ideal choice for harsh environments and enables the modules to operate between minus 40 and plus 85 degrees Celsius. An optional clip-on heat sink is available to extend the thermal performance of the unit in a convection or forced-air environment.

Artesyn AXA series modules cover an ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage range of 9 to 36 Vdc and 18 to 75 Vdc. The first models available offer single output models with voltages of 3.3, 5, 12, 15 and 24 V along with dual output models offering +/- 12 or 15 V, all with tight output voltage regulation. Enclosed in a 1.0 x 1.0 x 0.4 inch (25.4 x 25.4 x 10.16 mm) package, the Artesyn AXA series offers up to 89 percent efficiency.

The converters offer additional features such as overload protection, remote on/off control, input-to-output isolation voltage of 1500 Vdc, and the output voltage can be trimmed by +/- 10 percent of the nominal output. All models are approved to CSA/NTRL/IEC/EN 60950-1 for IT equipment.

The new AXA series is available through the company's http://www.artesyn.com/power/how-to-buy/map-and-country-list-search global channel network.
