CUI Inc's power line introduced a new line of dc-dc converters that provide 12 W output power in a compact 24-pin DIP package. The VAWQ12 series is an isolated board mount converter featuring a wide 4:1 input range and efficiencies of up to 88%. This series measures 1.26 x 0.79 x 0.41 inches and is housed in a five-sided metal shielded casing with an industry standard pinout. The VAWQ12 series is well suited for many applications where space is at a premium and a wide input range is needed such as data transfer equipment or battery operated equipment.
The VAWQ12 series has an input range from 9-36 Vdc at a nominal input of 24 Vdc, or from 18-75 Vdc at nominal input of 48 Vdc. Output voltages include 3.3, 5, 12, and 15 Vdc. The series has an operating temperature range of -40 to 85Â°C and an I/O isolation voltage of 1,500 Vdc. Features include over voltage protection, short circuit protection, and remote on/off control.
