Wide input 6W and 8W DC/DC converters

Two series of fully isolated DC/DC converters from XP Power come in an ultra-compact DIP-16 metal cased package measuring 23.8 x 13.7 x 8.0mm and offer power density of up to 50W/in3. ​

The company claims they are suitable for any application that requires through-hole mount DC/DC converters compliant with safety approvals IEC60950-1 and UL/cUL60950-1.

With two wide input voltage ranges, the converters feature the JWE06 (6W total output power) and JWE08 (8W total output power), as well as offer 1500V DC isolation with single or dual output voltages.

Both ranges offer devices with either 3.3, 5, 12, 15 or 24V DC single, and ±12V or ±15V DC dual outputs. Each series can operate from two ultra-wide input voltage ranges – 9V to 36V and 18V to 75V – with up to 87% efficiency. All models feature undervoltage lockout.

All devices in both series meet EN55032 Level A EMI standards, meaning no additional external filtering is required. They also function in temperatures ranging from -40 to 105℃, with no derating or forced air cooling required up to 70℃.

According to the company, the JWE06 and JWE08 series have zero minimum load requirements and achieve a typical line regulation of ±0.2% and load regulation of ±0.5%. For dual output models, cross regulation is a maximum of ±5.0% for load variation on one output of between 25% and 100% while the other output is fixed at 100%.

Applications include automation and process control, broadcast, fixed and mobile telecommunications, networking and data-communications, as well as instrumentation and specialist equipment.
