Artesyn’s ASA 6W-M series of 6W DC/DC converters provides OEMs with a cost-effective solution for applications in industrial and medical instrumentation requiring a certified compliance with stringent industrial or medical safety standards.

The series provides a reinforced insulation system of 4000 VAC, insulation resistance of 10 GOhm, is rated for dual means of operator protection (MOOP) and has medical safety certification to UL/cUL/EN/ IEC 60601-1 3rd Edition. This product family has a calculated MTBF of one million hours.


Encapsulated in a 31.8 x 20.3 mm (1.25 x 0.8 inch) industry-standard package, the converters run at up to 80% efficiency and accept input voltage ranges of nominal 12V, 24V or 48V (9 - 18 Vdc; 18 - 36 Vdc; 36 - 75 Vdc) available in single or dual output variants. 5V and 12V single output models, together with +12/-12 and +15/-15 V dual output models, operate 0ver -40 to 75C with full power available to 55C.
