The MM Series of dc-dc converters are for direct PCB mounting and is available in four package sizes with output voltages from 300V up to 15 kV, at 1.5 or 2.5W. Reversible modules are available up to 15 kV, with output power of 1.5W. All models feature standard input voltages of 9, 12, or 24V dc, and input currents less than 1A at full output. Other input voltages and multiple outputs can be custom-ordered. The series features built-in arc protection, and all models can be used with an external feedback loop to provide regulated outputs.
