Powerbox announces the introduction of three new series of 15W, 20W and 30W board mount DC/DC converters for demanding medical applications, totaling 105 models. The PMM15, PMM20 and PMM30 are certified to the 3rd Edition of the IEC/EN/ANSI/AAMI ES 60601-1 medical safety standard and rated for the highest levels of patient protection – 2xMOPP. With a clearance and creepage distance of 8mm, a typical leakage current of 2µA and a 5,000VAC isolation voltage, the modules ensure operator and patient safety and protection in medical applications. For optimized efficiency and flexibility, all models are available in wide input (2:1) and ultra-wide input (4:1) versions covering from 9V to 75V input voltage and providing seven different output voltages from 5V to +/-15V. The power converters are covered by a five-year warranty.
In medical equipment, safety is an absolute must and as specified in the IEC/EN/ANSI/AAMI ES 60601-1 safety standard, the PMM15, PMM20 and PMM30 have an input to output isolation voltage of 5,000VAC. They integrate a reinforced insulation with two means of patient protection (2x MOPP), have a typical leakage current of 2µA and a clearance and creepage distance of 8mm.
The PMM15, PMM20 and PMM30 wide input (2:1) units are available in three input voltage ranges, 9-18V, 18-36V, 36-75V, and the ultra-wide input (4:1) versions in two input voltage, 9-36V and 18-75V. All models are fully regulated with a complete range of output voltages comprising 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, +/-5V, +/-12V and +/-15V. No minimum load is required and tight regulation from no load to full load of +/-0.2% on single output, and +/-0.5% on dual output is provided.
Designed around an optimized topology, the PMM15, PMM20 and PMM30 have an efficiency up 90% and can be operated within an ambient temperature of -40 to +105 degrees C. In the case of natural convection a derating may apply. In cases of excess of heat, an internal over-temperature protection is set at +115 degrees C case.
The PMM15, PMM20 and PMM30 include a number of protections including over-voltage, under-voltage, over-load and short circuit, and thermal-shutdown.
Supplied in a non-conductive black plastic housing and potted with a UL94-V0 silicon compound, the PMM15 and PMM20 are sized at 40.6 x 25.4 x 10.2 mm (1.6 x 1 x 0.4 inch) and weigh 24 grams. The PMM30 is available in a 50.8 x 25.4 x 10.2 mm (2.0 x 1.0 x 0.4 inch) housing and weighs 32 grams.
Without using external components, the PMM15, PMM20 and PMM30 meet EMI levels as specified by EN55011, EN55032 and FCC Part 18, Class A. An optional remote control pin (P) for positive logic and (N) for negative logic is available to externally control ON/OFF. All single output voltage modules can be externally adjusted up and down by adding a resistor bridge connected to the trimming pin. The PMM family includes 6 series, 3W PMM03 ; 6W PMM06 ; 10W PMM10 ; 15W PMM15 ; 20W PMM20 and 30W PMM30. All products conform to the European directive RoHS, REACH and are CE marked.
