Courtesy: WeidmullerWeidmuller’s connectPower Pro dc/dc Converter is designed for process, transportation and machinery industries. The converters carry Class I Div 2 and ATEX certification as well as Class III protection. This electrically isolated dc/dc converter line is designed to avoid critical earth loops. From an unregulated or distorted input voltage, it generates a stable, low-distortion output voltage. The connectPower compact converters are ideal for use in earth-free power systems, such as battery backup systems in hazardous location applications.

Weidmuller connectPower Pro dc/dc converters feature power specifications, excellent resistance to shock and vibration, a status signal for remote monitoring, and operating efficiency of 94%. tThe converters can be mounted side-by-side without clearance requirements. This offers up to a 30% reduction in cabinet space. A metal clip-on foot provides increased stability on the DIN-rail and resistance to high vibration and shock. The converters are also designed for operation in extreme environments and have an operating temperature range of -25 to 70 C and a start-up of -40 C.
