When used together, the master and satellite modules can be deployed in higher-powered, single-output configurations to meet growing board-level power requirements and power density demands or in dual-output configurations to power components with differing output voltage requirements.
Operating at up to 900 W with efficiencies as high as 97%, the Advanced Energy Artesyn NDQ900 DC/DC converter provides a single, regulated 12.25-V output and incorporates a PMBus interface for flexible digital control and monitoring.
The compact, 2 kA 8/20 μs rated, surface-mount package series allows electronics designers to achieve a more robust transient voltage, overvoltage protection, and lightning protection system while using less printed circuit board (PCB) space.
Unlike a fuse, the VACON NXP DCGuard can easily be reset and restarted once fault conditions have been removed. This will remove barriers for end users who are reluctant to switch to more efficient DC systems due to concerns over short circuit fault currents.
The Vacon NXP DCGuard is a device that maintains the safety and stability of a DC grid system by detecting and cutting off any faulty direct currents (DCs) within 50 microseconds and, thereby, protecting the surrounding equipment by preventing brownouts associated with typical fuse or breaker protections that take up to 100 times longer to trip.
The module’s design is optimized for I.P.-sealed applications in high-pollution environments or externally mounted systems, which require solutions that are thermally bonded and contact-cooled to a cold-wall or heatsink. This results in 100% available output power at baseplate temperatures as high as 100ºC.
