DC/DC converter halves profile height for automation

At 12.5 x 4.36 x 10.41mm, the NXE2 series provides more power output in the same space, says the company. The 2W converter is constructed using automated techniques in a halogen free iLGA inspectable package with an integrated transformer.

The series comprises four models with nominal input voltages of 5 or 12V DC and outputs of 5, 12 or 15V DC. Input to output isolation of 3 kV DC is standard across the range.

The converters can be used in industrial automation, instrumentation and transportation equipment. It is also suitable for use in telecomms, wireless and medical designs that require a low power isolated DC voltage such as an isolated communications interface for example.

Certification to UL60950 and medical safety is pending.
