VPT introduces new 5W dual output DC-DC converter
HEICO company VPT has announced the introduction of a new dual output DC-DC power converter to its portfolio of products. Called the VPT5-2800D DC-DC power converter, the system is designed for to reliably power electronics in unmanned vehicles, ships, armoured ground vehicles, and other rugged systems.
The VPT5-2800D DC-DC power converter delivers up to 5 watts from a small footprint of approximately one square inch, meets several military standards, and features a six-sided metal package.
The system is a step down DC-DC power converter delivering up to 5W from two outputs. It features a wide input voltage range of 15 to 50 volts per MIL-STD-704 and MIL-STD-1275; high input transient voltage of 80 volts for 1 sec per MIL-STD-704A; and dual outputs of +/- 5V, +/- 12V and +/- 15V. It is capable of full operation over -55 degrees C to +100 degrees C military temperature range, has low input/output noise, and an input undervoltage lockout, output soft start, short circuit protection, and current limit protection. It has also been designed to offer fixed frequency, magnetic feedback circuit with no optoisolators, and high efficiency.
Monty Pyle, vice president of sales and marketing at VPT, said of the new system: ‘At VPT, we design for extreme reliability from the start. Like all of our products, the new VPT5 dual output converter satisfies rigorous design standards that include MIL-STD-704 input voltage requirements, full operation over an extended temperature range, and all-sided metal packaging to provide excellent EMI shielding. This product is on the shelf and ready to provide smooth power through harsh environments.’
