Flex Power Modules has expanded its range of 2” x 1” encapsulated, through-hole DC/DC converters with the addition of three new parts with single outputs of 24 V (21.6-26.4 V), 48 V (43.2-52.8 V), and 54 V (48.6-59.4 V). The parts retain the wide 8:1 input range of the PKE8000A series, suiting nominal inputs of 12 V, 24 V, 28 V, or 48 V for a wide range of industrial, transportation, RFPA, and IT applications.
Encapsulation of these power-dense converters provides mechanical protection and reliable operation in environments with high shock and vibration levels or with high dust/humidity.
The output power of 40 W is available to high ambient temperatures with convection cooling, enabled by an innovative design that maintains high conversion efficiency across the load and input voltage range. The maximum case operating temperature is 115 °C with derating.
The PKE8000A series features a 2250 V input/output isolation rating according to IEC/UL 62368-1 and is fully protected against input overvoltage and output overload, short-circuit, over-voltage and over-temperature. A remote-control pin is provided along with voltage trim.
The footprint of the product is 2” x 1” (25.4 mm x 50.8 mm) and the height is 0.47” (11.9 mm).
The new PKE8000A variants are available in OEM quantities in March 2022.
