ELECTRONICS:TDK-Lambda has introduced a new family of single and dual-output dc-dc converters that provide a broad range of inputs and outputs for a variety of industrial, telecom and process control applications. Comprising the PXD30W Series, these converters feature six-sided shielded metal cases that reduce the radiated noise to meet EN55022 Level A specifications.
The PDX30W series offer a wide 4:1 input range of either 9-36V or 18-75V dc, which reduces the number of parts that need to be inventoried at the user’s facility and also enhances the flexibility of the end system.
Footprints for the devices are industry standard 2 x 1 x 0.4 inches. Available output voltages include: single outputs of 3.3V, 5V, 12V or 15V dc, and dual-outputs of +/-3.3V, +/-5V, +/-12V or +/-15V dc.
The devices boast efficiencies of up to 90 percent and MTBF in excess of 3.1 million hours, are safety-approved to UL/IEC/EN60950-1 specifications and carry the CE Mark. Remote “On/Off” is a standard feature of all models and “Trim” is standard on all single-output units.
The new PXD30W family of dc-dc converters is available now and priced at $51 each in 500 piece quantities.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
