Calex introduces ruggedized DC-DC converter
Calex Manufacturing Company announced the release of the 24S53.19FXW DC-DC converter. Designed for battery connect applications, represents the final product in Calex's FXW series of DC-DC converters, exhibiting a power density of 181 W/in³ over a 9-36 V DC input range in a ruggedized full brick package that delivers 1000 W of output power.
The 24S53.19FXW incorporates digitally controlled synchronous rectification technology and case construction intended to optimize thermal performance. With a footprint of 2.5 x 4.7 x 0.52 inches, the converter operates at a fixed frequency of 200 kHz and a temperature range of -40⁰C to +105⁰C. Additionally, the converter can deliver full output power without derating up to 90⁰C. Heatsink options are available for extended temperature use.
All models in the 1000 W FXW series feature a 4:1 input voltage range; output voltages of 12, 24, 28, 48, and 53 V DC; remote ON/OFF; remote sense, and trim that allows users to adjust the output voltage +10% to -40%. An ON/OFF function is available to minimize the current draw from the batteries when the converter is in the off state. All FXW models are protected by over current, short circuit, and over temperature protection. The FXW series is UL60950 approved.
