SynQor Expands offering for Railway & Transportation Applications

72V input supports additional requirements

Boxborough, MA - June 27th 2007 - SynQor today announces the release of the IQ72xxxQTC series of 72V input Quarter Brick DC-DC Converters, targeting Railway & Transportation Applications to compliment other recently announced 110V devices for this market place.

The wide input voltage range of 42-110V exceeds the requirements of EN50155 for both steady state and transient voltage conditions for 72V systems. 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 IQ72 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.
