Aimtec has released the AM40UW-Z series of high-performance 40W DC/DC converters with ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage ranges for battery-powered devices and power distribution architectures.

Providing input voltage ranges of 9~36VDC and 18~75VDC and a tight line-load regulation of +/- 0.5 per cent, the AM40UW-Z series also features a remote on/off function, output voltage adjustment (trim) and load voltage sensing.

An industrial operating temperature range of -40C to +85C supports integration in a variety of indoor and outdoor applications.

Output voltage adjustment and load voltage sensing specifically help to compensate for wire or track voltage losses due to the high current output, maintaining consistently high load voltage accuracy, while the converter can be controlled remotely from a microprocessor through the on/off function, allowing the load circuit to be indirectly controlled.

Models are available with single output voltages of 3.3, 5, 12, and 15VDC, and dual output voltages of +/- 12 and +/- 15VDC while sourcing maximum output currents as high as 10A and efficiency rates as high as 92 per cent.

In addition to over-voltage, over-current and short-circuit protection, the AM40UW-Z features over-temperature protection that shuts down the converter to protect the load circuit should the module’s case temperature exceed its threshold.

Designed in a 2 x 2 x 0.4in low-profile case with a high power density of 10W/in2, Aimtec’s AM40UW-Z is said to provide a turnkey solution for space-critical applications such as battery-operated devices and power distribution architectures for industrial and communication applications.

RoHS compliant, all models undergo full production testing of their parameters to ensure high reliability.
