Traco Power Introduces Two Series of Isolated DC/DC Converters

5 days ago by Gary Elinoff

The 12 watt devices are available in DIP-16 metal packages and achieve a power density of 3.61 watt/cm3

The Tel 12 and TEL WI 12 watt DC/DC converter series from Traco feature 2:1 and 4:1 input ranges covering 9 to 75 volts, with outputs of 5.1, 12, ±12, 15, ±15 or 24 VDC

What are 2:1 and 4:1 Input Ranges?

A 2:1 input range converter accepts power ranging from a given voltage to twice that voltage. A 4:1 input range device works with voltages ranging from a given voltage to four times that voltage. 

Members of the TEL 12 series are 2:1 input devices. Individual series members  accept inputs from 9 to 18 volts, 18 to 36 volts, or 36 to 75 volts

Members of the TEL 12WI series are 4:1 input devices. Individual series members  accept inputs from 9 to 36 volts or 18 to 75 volts

These features allow an OEM to stock few power converter models that serve a broader range of design purposes. For example, a converter that can work a 4:1 range of 18 to 75 volts can work with both of the ever more important 24 and 48 VDC input voltage rails.

For Members of Both Series 

Voltage Set Accuracy is ±1% maximum

Input Current at no load (typical)

  • Nominal 12 Vin Models : 20 mA 
  • Nominal 24 Vin Models: 10 mA
  • Nominal 48 Vin Models: 7 mA

 

Surge Voltage (maximum)

  • Nominal 12 Vin models: 25 VDC (1 second, max time) 
  • Nominal 24 Vin models: 50 VDC (1 second, max time) 
  • Nominal 48 Vin models:100 VDC (1 second, max time)

 

Under Voltage Lockout (typical)

  • Nominal 12 Vin models: 8 VDC 
  • Nominal 24 Vin models: 16 VDC 
  • Nominal 48 Vin models: 34 VDC 

 

Output Specifications - Regulation

   Both Single and dual output units

  • Input Variation (Vmin – Vmax): 0.8% maximum
  • Load Variation (0 to 100%): 1% Maximum

  Dual output Units    

  • Voltage balance with a symmetrical load: 2% maximum
  • Cross regulation (25%/100% asymetrical load) 

 

Isolation Test Voltage

  • Input to Output: 1500 VDV for 60 seconds
  • Input to Output: 1800 VDC for 1 second
  • Input to Case: 1000 VDC for 60 seconds
  • Output to Case: 1000  VDC for 60 seconds

 

Applications

  • Industrial electronics
  • Instrumentation
  • Information technology

 

Physical Considerations

The devices are all packaged in shielded, six sided encapsulated metal cases with insulated baseplates.

Total package size (L x W x H) is 23.8 by 13.7 by 10.20 mm.

All units weigh 8.6 grams

Full load operation over a temperature range of 40 to +65℃. Series member can operate at 50% capacity at +85℃

 

Regulatory Concerns

Safety

  • EN 62368-1
  • IEC 62368-1
  • UL 62368-1  

EMI Emissions

  • Conducted emissions (internal filter): EN 55032 class A, FCC Part 15 class A 
  • Radiated emissions (external filter) : EN 55032 class A, FCC Part 15 class A
