DC-DC Power Converters for railway applications, EN50155 compliant

Railway DC-DC Power Converters and Filters

Isolated DC-DC Converters for the Rail Transportation Industry

The RailQor® converter series is composed of next-generation, board-mountable, isolated, fixed switching frequency DC-DC converters that use synchronous rectification to achieve extremely high power conversion efficiency, even at low output power levels. The Quarter-brick 25-50 W Mega Series has power dissipation so low that no heatsink is necessary to operate at 85°C in an enclosed environment without airflow. Each module is supplied completely encased to provide protection from the harsh environments seen in many industrial and transportation applications.
