March 16, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Murata Power Solutions has introduced the UWQ series of isolated open-frame 204 Watt DC/DC converters packaged in a through-hole mount industry standard quarter-brick format.

Measuring just 58.4 x 36.8 x 11.7 mm and boasting an efficiency of 92%, the UWQ series has an ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage range of 18 – 75 VDC around a nominal 48 VDC input. Providing a single output voltage of 12 VDC up to 17A of current with a line regulation of +/-1% and load regulation of +/-1.5%, the UWQ series is idea for applications that require a regulated bus converter. The input to output isolation is certified to 2,250 VDC in accordance with the internationally recognized safety standard EN/UL60950.

Controls include remote On/Off control of either negative or positive polarity. In addition the converter has a number of protection features including over current, over temperature, input under voltage and output short circuit.

Designed for Regulated Intermediate Bus Architectures, typical applications include optical networking applications, wireless base stations and microwave radio communications equipment. An optional baseplate is available for applications requiring conduction cooling.

The UWQ series can operate from -40 to + 85 degrees C suiting applications in most environments.
