6-W DC-DC converters in a DIP-24 package

December 05, 2013 // By Paul Buckley
XP Power has introduced the JCE06 and JTE06 series of low cost compact 6-W DC-DC converters aimed at a broad range of mobile communications, industrial and transportation applications.

Constructed in a plastic industry standard 24-pin DIP through-hole mounting package, and measuring 31.75 x 20.32 x 10.40 mm, the single and dual output units achieve a power density of 15 W/in 3 and an efficiency of up to 84%.

Single output models are available with +3.3, +5, +12, +15 or +24 VDC outputs. Duals provide +/-3.3, +/-5, +/-12, +/-15 or +/-24 VDC outputs. The JCE06 accommodates a wide 2:1 input range and the JTE06 series an ultra wide 4:1 input range. All models cover the nominal input voltages of +12, +24 or +48 VDC.

Input to output isolation is 1,500 VDC across the range. An optional 3,000 VDC isolation model is available, and a metal case option is also available. The converters suit a wide range of operating environments in temperatures from -40 to + 100C. No additional forced airflow or heatsinking is required.

An under voltage input protection feature shuts down the converter below a set voltage in order to prevent damage to the converter.

All models within both ranges meet EN55022 class A conducted EMC emissions without the need for any additional components.

The JCE06 and JTE06 series are available from Farnell, element14, regional distributors, or direct from XP Power and come with a three-year warranty.
