ELECTRONICS: TDK-Lambda has announced its latest high density, cost-effective, dc-dc converter family with the introduction of the new CC-P-E Series. These are ultra compact, fully isolated converters that feature wide range dc inputs (24 or 48V nominal) which make them ideal for telecom, datacom, distributed power, battery operated devices, FPGA, and process control applications. Available with output voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 12V or 15V dc, with output power ratings of 15 or 30-watts, these fully-regulated, high efficiency (92 percent typical) converters can be paralleled for higher power applications.The CC-P-E modules are available in thru-hole or SMT packages, with or without a shielded metal case and are suitable for extended temperature range applications from -40 to 85C.
DC OK, Sequencing (for up to 20 paralleled units), Remote On/Off, and Parallel Alarm pins are among the standard signals and controls. In addition, overvoltage and overcurrent protection circuits are built-in.
These converters are available with a nominal 24V dc input that can operate from 18 to 36V dc or a 48V dc input that will operate from 36 to 76V dc. Ideal for limited-space applications, the 15-W units measure only 29.6 x 38.4 mm and are 6.8 mm high. And the 30-W converters measure 33.5 x 38.4 mm and are just 8.3 mm high. The designer can simply parallel two of more of these converters for higher power requirements.
These dc-dc converters include TDK-Lambda’s five-year warranty. All cased models have an input-to-output, input-case, and output-case isolation of 1000V dc, are safety-approved to UL/CSA/EN60950-1, and are RoHS compliant.
The new CC-P-E family of converters is available now and priced at $28 each in 100 piece quantities.
