Half-Brick DC-DC Converters Work from 12-V or 24-V Input

Wall Industries Inc.’s new LV Series of half-brick dc-dc converters is designed for use in a broad range of applications that require a nominal 12-V or 24-V input. Wall Industries also is capable of rapidly customizing the LV Series to meet specific customer needs.

The LV Series of dc-dc converters features a wide-range, low dc input of 10 V to 30 V. The converters can be configured to provide output voltages of 3.3 V, 5 V, 12 V, 15 V, 24 V, 26 V and 28 V. Each LV converter produces up to 150 W and 20 A of output current at 3.3 V and 5 V, with efficiencies of up to 88%.

Additional features of the LV Series include tight line and load regulation, short-circuit protection, fast transient response and input/output isolation of 1500 Vdc. Designed with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +100°C and 6-sided shielding, the LV Series comes standard with remote sense, trim to 10%, case ground pin, remote on/off and a "key" pin. If required, these converters are mechanically designed to attach a heat sink, and are housed in the industry-standard half brick size of 2.28-in. × 2.40-in. × 0.50-in. high. The LV series is priced at $59.95 in OEM quantities.
