20W Encapsulated and Isolated DIP24 DC-DC Converters

February 26, 2018 by Paul Shepard

Mean Well has released the SCW20 series of 20W DIP24 dc-dc converters as an addition to the previously released SCW03/SCWN03 (3W), SCW05 (5W), SCW08 (8W), and SCW12 (12W) single output units. This addition expands the SCW family’s power coverage up to 20W, and the entire SCW family is designed according to the DIP24 dual in-line package standard with the same pin assignments.

In situations where the end system requires upgrade of higher power, the SCW20 can directly replace the lower power SCW models without end system PCB re-layout. The SCW20 claims the highest power density (41.6W/in3 ) out of all the DIP24 DC/DC converters currently available to the market.

In addition, Mean Well is the only manufacturer with a 20W option in the DIP24 package. With outstanding features such as 2:1 wide input range, ultra-wide operating temperature (-40 to +80 degrees ), 3000Vdc I/O isolation, and 3-year warranty, the SCW20 can perform exceedingly well in applications that utilize distributed power architecture, including but not limited to IoT, electric motor, wireless network, industrial control, and communication systems.

  • DIP24 dual in-line package
  • Ultra-high power density (41.6W/in3)
  • 2:1 wide input range
  • 3000Vdc I/O Isolation
