TDK-Lambda Launches Low Profile, Isolated 15 & 30W Converters with Parallel FunctionJanuary 25, 2010 by Jeff Shepard
TDK-Lambda has announced its latest high density dc-dc converter family with the introduction of the new CC-P-E Series. These are ultra compact, fully isolated converters that feature wide range dc inputs (24 or 48V nominal) which make them well suited for telecom, datacom, distributed power, battery operated devices, FPGA, and process control applications. Available with output voltages of 3.3, 5, 12 or 15Vdc, with output power ratings of 15 or 30W, these fully-regulated, high efficiency (92% typical) converters can be paralleled for higher power applications.
The CC-P-E modules are available in thru-hole or SMT packages, with or without a shielded metal case and are suitable for extended temperature range applications from -40 to +85°C.
DC OK, Sequencing (for up to 20 paralleled units), Remote On/Off, and Parallel Alarm pins are among the standard signals and controls. In addition, overvoltage and overcurrent protection circuits are built-in.
These converters are available with a nominal 24Vdc input that can operate from 18 to 36Vdc or a 48Vdc input that will operate from 36 to 76Vdc. Well suited for limited-space applications, the 15W units measure only 29.6 x 38.4mm and are 6.8mm high. And the 30W converters measure 33.5 x 38.4mm and are just 8.3mm high. The designer can simply parallel two of more of these converters for higher power requirements.
All cased models have an input-to-output, input-case, and output-case isolation of 1000Vdc, are safety-approved to UL/CSA/EN60950-1, and are RoHS compliant.
The new CC-P-E family of converters is available now and priced at $28.00 each in 100 piece quantities.
