High-Density Convertor Offeredin Small Package

The product supplies more than twice thepower output of full-size convertors

The APC500 high-density dc/dc convertor integrates the power transformer and the input and output inductors at the same ferrite core.

Suitable for space-sensitive OEM designs, a high-density dc/dc convertor delivers500 W from a single low-voltage output. The APC500, offered by Advanced Power Conversion (Hampshire, UK), integrates the power transformer and the input and output inductors on thesame ferrite core. The APC500 represents an advance in the development of high-power, high-density dc convertor modules according to the firm. It provides500 W of power in the industry-standard "full-brick" size. The 5.53-W/cm3 power density represents more than twice the power output of conventional full-brick-size convertors. Built-in protection functions are complemented by features such as a thermal monitoring voltage, which provides early warning ofa system failure.

The unit can be easily modified for customer-specific requirements. The transformer windings can be tailored to create a model witha different output voltage. The convertor can also be changed to user-adjustable current limits. A custom convertor can be optimized for maximum efficiency at the user's anticipated output power.
