Mean Well has announced the new SCWN/DCWN06 (6W) series in order to fulfill the dc-dc application market's constant demands for performance upgrade. In comparison to the older SCW05/DCW05 (5W) series, which have been released for more than 10 years, the new series design is vastly improved in many aspects, such as wider operating temperature range, higher I/O isolation levels, etc.
The SCWN/DCWN06 series are designed according to the DIP24 dual in-line package standard and can be used as a direct replacement to the older SCW/DCW05 or any other products that share the same DIP24 footprint.
Some character defining features of the SCWN/DCWN06 include 2:1 wide input range, ultra-wide operating temperature (-40 to +90°C), 3000Vdc I/O isolation, EN55032 Class A EMI performance without additional filters, and 3-year warranty.
These series are suitable for applications that utilize distributed power architectures, such as IoT, electric motor, wireless network, industrial control, and communication systems.
