Absopulse Electronics introduced its BKP 419-EH – a rugged, industrial quality, dc-dc plug-in converter that uses field-proven technology to generate up to 1500W output power, depending on the cooling method employed. The natural air convection cooled version generates 1000W, and the unit with forced-air cooling by system fans generates up to 1500W. Heat generating components are installed on aluminum heatsink blocks, which are connected to the heatsink fins on the side of the module, which the company says ensures excellent heat dissipation.
This compact plug-in module measures 4U x 16HP x 12" and is typically used in 19" rack-mount applications. The standard version of this plug-in module can be operated from a 125Vdc (105 – 140V range) line voltage and delivers a single output of either 24 or 48Vdc. Other input and output voltages are available on request. A built-in redundancy diode allows for parallel connection or N+1 redundant operation, including hot-insertion. The front panel of the module has an output voltage ’ON’ LED indicator, voltage adjustment potentiometer and test points.
Designed for heavy-duty industrial environments, the BKP 419-EH meets IEC 61371 Categories 1 A & B shock and vibration standards, with additional ruggedizing and conformal coating available as an option. The BKP 419-EH has input and output filtering in compliance with EN55022 EMI standards. Full electronic protection eliminates the possibility of failure due to abnormal operating conditions, including application errors.
The BKP 419-EH 1000W unit is priced in the US$536 range at quantities of 100, depending on options, and the 1500W version at US$606.
