Luso Intros CTC Low-Power AC-DC Converters
Low-power AC-DC converter.
London, UK — Luso Electronics Distribution has introduced a series of small 5W power-density single-output AC-DC converters from CTC, designated AC5WR, that offer outputs ranging from 3.3 to 25VDC and power efficiencies of up 80 percent. Dual-output devices offering ±5, 12 and 15VDC are also available.

Although traditionally known as a manufacturer of DC/DC converters, CTC has used its expertise in the low-power conversion arena to offer this highly competitive range of encapsulated board-mount AC-DC power supplies. The new AC5WR range offers a universal input range from 90 to 264VAC (47 to 440Hz) or DC inputs from 120 to 370VDC. A key feature of the product range is that it meets strict no-load power consumption limits of 0.25W maximum to ensure end products will comply with energy-efficiency standards worldwide. The product offers low ripple and noise of 100mV (peak-to-peak maximum) and output voltage tolerances of 1 percent maximum. device protection features include I/O isolation of 3000VAC, continuous short-circuit, overload and over-voltage protection.

According to the manufacturer, the product's MTBF is greater than 400,000 hours and the operating temperature range is -25 to +75°C with no derating until +55°C. The device meets international safety standards including CE, UL-60950-1 and EN60950-1; and EMI compliance meets EN55022, class B.

Luso Electronics has three operating divisions. Luso Microwave manufactures and installs microwave systems and components for commercial and military satellite markets. Luso Power Transmission distributes engineering components for machinery and Luso Electronics Distribution provides representative and franchised distribution services for power electronic products and components.
