To help make it one of the flexible DC-DC converters on the Australian market, Amtex Electronics has improved its DCW series of DC-DC converters in relation to their input voltage options, output voltage options and power levels.
Designed for professional applications such as in the railways industry, control and factory automation, telecommunications, instrumentation, utilities, and many other industrial applications, the series is available now with two wide input voltage options.
A 20 to 60 V DC input version and allow it to operate from either a 24 V or 48 V supply. Another version accepts inputs from 65 to 160 V DC.
This development helps standardise the product range, reduces inventory of spares and lessens the paperwork associated with having too many models.
Another way it has been improved is through the choice of output voltages.
Although Amtex only stocks the standard 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V outputs, users of its technology can now order any output voltage to 120 V DC without any MOQs.
The company will manufacture 100, 150 and 200 W models.
Mechanically, the DCW series comes in a vented case with screw terminals that can be manufactured with DIN rail mounting as well as open frame for low cost solution.
As an option, all units can be conformal coated or ruggedised for demanding environments.
All units are designed in accordance with EMC standards EN55022 Class B, as well as AS/NZS60950 for safety, with the DCW 100 unit already tested by a NATA accredited laboratory.
All units in the DCW series have standard over-voltage and overload protection, and high efficiency of 85%.
Amtex Electronics has a strong engineering department that can offer customised solutions to meet unique applications for many electronics technologies.
