Schaefer announces the PRC-500 Series of DC/DC converters that provide 500W of power in a compact, chassis mount package. The PRP-500 Series has versions that meet industrial (EN60950) or rail (EN50155) standards.
Standard nominal input voltages are 24VDC, 48VDC, 72VDC, and 110VDC. The PRC-500 Series provides highly efficient (up to 92%) conversion to adjustable 24VDC and 48VDC outputs that are tightly regulated to 0.2% or better. An ORing FET option allows for efficient parallel operation of multiple units.
All models in the series include protection circuitry against short circuit/overload, input reverse polarity, input under voltage or undercurrent, and output overvoltage. Remote sense, remote inhibit, LED indicators, and alarm signals are part of the standard design. A wide operating temperature of up to -25C to +75C allows for installations in extreme conditions and meets EN50155 Class 3. Emissions to EN61000-6-4 and EN60121-3-2 meets both industrial and rail standards and minimizes interference to other sensitive equipment.
The device measures 10.47” x 7.08” x 2.16”. In addition to chassis mounting, an optional DIN rail clip or 6U subrack plate are available.
