CUI Inc. has added a 2 W series to its second generation isolated dc-dc converter family designed to deliver improved efficiency, isolation, and thermal performance compared to previous versions. The unregulated PDS2-M series is packaged in the same compact 8 pin SMT package as the existing 1 W PDS family, measuring 12.7 x 11.2 x 7.25 mm (0.50 x 0.44 x 0.29 in). The modules feature 1.5 kVdc I/O isolation and anti-static protection up to 8 kVdc. The PDS2-M series is designed with an ultra-wide operating temperature range of -40~105 °C, offering a reliable solution for converting and/or isolating dc rails within a variety of industrial, telecom, security, and machine control applications.
The series provides nominal inputs of 5, 12, 15, and 24 Vdc and outputs of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15 and 24 Vdc. The dc-dc converters are highly efficient compared to other products in their class, delivering typical efficiencies up to 86%. To further enhance performance across the entire load curve, the modules have been designed to greatly reduce power draw under light and no load conditions. The new family of dc-dc converters also comes standard with continuous short circuit protection, providing an additional layer of protection for sensitive loads.
The PDS2-M is available immediately through distribution with prices starting at $6.41 per unit for 500 pieces. Please contact CUI for OEM pricing.
