Bus power modules are available in 12 and 24V versions with output currents from 5 to 20A. Four series are available, including the PT6620 and PT6650, which can supply output currents of 7 and 5A, respectively. The PT7720 and PT7750 can supply output currents of up to 20A. Applications include distributed power ones using 12 or 24V bus architectures. With efficiencies between 85 and 90%, all four of these products feature output inhibit function, remote sense, and over-temperature shutdown, and are available in surface-mount configurations.
