30 W Dual Output Variants Of PKE Series

Ensures mechanical protection and reliable operation in environments with high shock and vibration levels or with dust/humidity present

Flex Power Modules has added 30 W dual output variants to its PKE range of through-hole, encapsulated, board-mounted DC-DC converters. The PKE532x series has an 18-75 Vdc (100 V peak) input range suitable for 24, 28 or 48 V nominals and the PKE332x series input range is 9-36 Vdc (50 V peak). Both parts are available with either +/-12V or +/15 V fully regulated dual outputs, with power ratings of 30 W total.
Encapsulation of the PKE series ensures mechanical protection and reliable operation in environments with high shock and vibration levels or with dust/humidity present. All parts are in a space-saving 1” x 1” x 0.4” format with 5-sided shielding from a metallic case.
A particular advantage of these new variants in the PKE series is their ability to operate to over 100°C ambient with airflow and derating. This is facilitated by their exceptional efficiency for this class of products.
Input-output Isolation of the DC-DC converters is 1500 VDC, meeting ‘basic’ insulation and safety requirements according to IEC/UL 62368-1. EN 55032, CISPR 32 and FCC part 15J EMC conducted emissions standards can be met with an external filter, specified in the product datasheets.
A remote on/off control is provided and both series include comprehensive protection against over-temperature, input under-voltage, output over-voltage, over-current and short circuits.
“These PKE range additions with higher-powered dual outputs are positioned at an attractive price/performance point. They are a great fit for high-reliability applications where cost is important, such as industrial and communication electronics, instrumentation devices and mobile and battery-operated systems,” said Olle Hellgren Director Marketing and Product Management, Flex Power Modules.
