A New Approach to Circuit Breaker Design Using Silicon Carbide Switches - Nov 21
Mechanical circuit breakers can be low cost with minimal losses, but they operate slowly and wear out. Solid state versions overcome the problems and are becoming increasing viable as replacements at...

HRC05 DC/DC converters have adjustable output
Designed for mass spectrometry, electrophoresis, electrostatic chuck, detectors, capacitor charging, scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), imaging, and diagnostics equipment, the 5W regulated high voltage DC/DC converters have been released by XP Power.
They deliver an adjustable and reliable output voltage up to 6kV DC in a small package for high voltage integration. They have low line and load regulation (up to 0.01 per cent) and excellent ripple performance (less than 0.01 per cent), providing accurate and reliable high voltage for long term applications. All models are approved to IEC/UL/CSA/EN 62368-1, 61010-1 standards and are UKCA and CE marked to applicable directives and legislation for global use.
 
The input voltage is 24V DC nominal, with an operating range from 22 to 30V DC. It is available in 18 models with positive or negative DC outputs ranging from 0 to 350V up to 0 to 6,000V. The output voltage can be adjusted from 0 to 100 per cent with the onboard 0 to 5V DC reference input for easy high voltage integration and control. Voltage and current monitor outputs are also included in the standard package. 
 
The PCB mounted, convection-cooled units measure just 65 x 33 x 14mm and housed in a UL94V-0 rated encapsulation material and five-sided metal case that is internally grounded. According to XP it offers optimal mechanical integration and robustness into the overall system and space saving. The operating temperature range of the HRC05 series is -40 to 70 degrees C with no current derating over the range. Stability is 100ppm over eight hours (after a 30-minute warm-up). 
 
The HRC05 series features short circuit, arc, overload, and over-temperature protection circuitry and remote on/off to ensure the safety of both the device and the application in which it is installed. 
The DC/DC converters are covered with a three-year warranty. 
 
Key applications include mass spectrometry, electrophoresis, electrostatic chuck, detectors, capacitor charging, scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), imaging, and diagnostics equipment.
 
The HRC05 series is available from Digi-Key, Farnell, Mouser, RS Components, approved regional distributors, or direct from XP Power.
