1” x 1” 30W Encapsulated DC-DCs for Industrial and Telecom Systems

May 08, 2019 by Paul Shepard

Flex Power Modules has made several additions to the PKE series of dc-dc power converter modules for the industrial, test equipment and telecom sectors, continuing its commitment to offer a wider portfolio to design engineers. The modules are provided in sealed and encapsulated packaging, to ensure they will work reliably when subjected to dust, moisture, severe vibration and other harsh conditions.

The PKE3000 and PKE5000 series provide highly reliable, high-performance and rugged dc-dc solutions in the industry-standard 1” x 1” form factor, running from 12V or 24V nominal inputs for the PKE3000 series (9- to 36-Vdc), and 24V or 48V nominal inputs for the PKE5000 series (18- to 75Vdc).

Delivering up to 30W of output power at up to 92% efficiency, the series also offer mean time between failures (MTBF) of up to 5 million hours, and input-to-output isolation of 1500Vdc. The new galvanically isolated devices also meet the latest IEC/EN/UL62368-1 safety standards.

David Xie, Head of Product Management at Flex Power Modules, commented: “The PKE series is a popular package size in the industrial and test equipment market. Being designed to meet the requirements of demanding applications in these sectors alongside the telecom market too, these new variants further expand our support to design engineers with versatile products that are highly reliable and efficient.”

Both the PKE3000 and PKE5000 families are available now for sampling and volume production requirements.
