SynQor Introduces DC-DC Converters for Railway & Transportation Applications

110V input range meets EN50155 requirements

Boxborough, MA - May 30th 2007 - SynQor today announces the release of the IQ1B series of 110V input Quarter Brick DC-DC Converters, targeting Railway & Transportation Applications.

The wide input voltage range of 66-160V more than covers the requirements of EN50155 for both steady state and transient voltage conditions. A broad range of output voltages are available, with a maximum power level of 150W in the industry standard 2.30" x 1.45" quarter brick package size. Available output voltages are 1.8V/40A; 3.3V/30A; 5V/25A; 7V/20A; 12V/12A; 15V/10A; 24V/6A; 30V/5A and 48V/3A. Efficiency is as high as 91%.

The IQ1B family of devices are available in a fully encapsulated mechanical configuration for harsh environment applications. These modules bring the additional benefit of having reinforced-grade isolation from input to output. All models have at least 2250Vdc isolation rating between input and output. Calculated MTBF figures are in excess of 2MHrs, and all units are fully 6/6 RoHS compliant.

Control and protection features include remote sense, remote enable, a wide output voltage trim range of -20% to +10%, input under-voltage lockout, output OVP, current limit, short circuit protection, and thermal shutdown. Operating temperature range is -40 to +100°C.

Sample and production quantities are available immediately with a stock to 8 week lead-time. The modules are priced at $103 in OEM quantities. For additional information, please contact SynQor directly.
