TDK-LAMBDA AMERICAS has introduced the new DPX Series to satisfy customer demand for DC-DC converters that can be easily mounted onto DIN rails. Available with both 2:1 and 4:1 input voltage ranges covering from 9.5V to 75V, with 40 to 60W output ratings, this new series provides an economical solution for industrial and commercial applications such as process control, factory automation, test & measurement, as well as for alarm and security systems.

DPX models are available with single, dual or triple outputs. The single output models are available with an output voltage of 5V, 12V or 15V and the dual-output models have +/-12V or +/-15V outputs. The triple-output models provide a +5V main with either +/-12V or +/-15V outputs. The single output models can be adjusted +/-10% of its nominal output via a front-panel mounted potentiometer. Plus, a green LED indicator on the front panel gives an immediate visual confirmation of the output status.

The DPX Series of DC-DC converters are enclosed in a rugged metal case and can be mounted on either a TS35/7.5 or TS35/15 standard DIN rail. Typical operating efficiencies are up to 86%. All DPX models feature reverse-input-polarity protection, remote On/Off control, 1.6kV input to output isolation and are internally protected from overvoltage and overcurrent conditions.

These power supplies are convection cooled and operate over a wide temperature range from -40 to +85°C. They also meet EN55022 Level B EMI standards (radiated and conducted), MIL-STD-810F shock & vibration and are CE-marked. The supplies are priced from $121.50 each in 100 piece quantities.
