Weidmuller introduces a new DC/DC Converter to the PRO-M Power Supplies product line optimized for machinery and offering a host of advantages. This new electrically isolated DC/DC Converter avoids critical earth loops; from an unregulated or distorted input voltage, it generates a stable, low-distortion output voltage. With class III protection the compact converter is ideal for use in earth-free power systems, such as the battery backup systems found in marine technology, as well as in oil and gas, machinery, and factory automation applications.
Weidmuller’s DC/DC Converter is a versatile solution for all 24 VDC power supply applications. It features industry leading power specifications, excellent resistance to shock and vibration, an extremely thin profile, over 91% efficiency, and a status signal for remote monitoring. Weidmuller’s thin design, with a width of only 60mm, and the capability to be mounted side-by-side without clearance requirements saves space in the cabinet. The metal clip-on foot provides increased stability on the DIN-rail as well as high vibration and shock resistance. Integrated features such as an alarm output, which monitors the status of the 24V output voltage, and an LED that indicates DC OK status for the output voltage, the integrated transistor outputs, and the on/off status of the relay contact, provide clearly visible visual aids making trouble shooting quick and easy thus optimizing machine up-time.
Weidmuller’s DC/DC Converter is extensively protected with an internal fuse on the input side and on the output side with short-circuit and overload protection as well as a power boost at 24VDC of 12A for one minute. As with all Weidmuller PRO-M Power Supplies the DC/DC Converter is designed for extreme environments with an operating temperature range of -25° C to +70° C and approvals ranging from CE, TUV and GL to cULus and cURus for applications worldwide. The 3-year warranty for all PRO-M Power Supply products gives the customer ease of mind.
