XP Power Intros 30W DC-DC Railway Converter
DC-DC converter.
Sunnyvale, CA — XP Power has introduced the RDC30 series of highly efficient metal-cased and isolated 30W DC-DC converters designed specifically for railway applications. Accommodating a wide input range based around the popular railway input voltages of either 72 (36-140VDC) or 110 (55-176VDC), the converters are available with single, dual or triple outputs and conform to the railway industry transient standards EN50155, NF F 01-510 and RIA12. The single output models provide the standard regulated output voltage of 3.3, 5, 12 or 15VDC, and duals provide ±5, ±12 or ±15VDC. Triple output models provide a 3.3VDC output with either ±12 or ±15VDC outputs, or a 5VDC output with either ±12 or ±15VDC outputs.

These convection-cooled converters have an efficiency rating of up to 91 percent, and deliver a power density of 37.5 Watts per cubic inch from their compact package that measures 1 x 2 x 0.4-in. (25.4 x 50.8 x 10.16mm). When convection cooled, the operating temperature range is from -40 to +75°C. An optional heatsink extends this up to +80°C. Maximum case temperature is +105°C.

The converter provides 1500VAC Basic isolation between input and output, and 1600VDC between input/output and the metal case. The RDC30 series complies with the internationally recognized EMC standard EN50121-3-2 as required for railway applications and rolling stock apparatus.

A remote On/Off function gives external control of the output while a trim input provides the capability to adjust the output voltage ±10 percent of the nominal output voltage.
