MicroPower Direct’s A600ERU series is a family of compact single and dual output 6 W dc/dc converters. High performance features include an ultra-wide 4:1 input range, tight regulation and compact packaging.

Eighteen models operate from wide 4:1 inputs of 9 to 36 or 18 to 72 V dc; providing outputs of 3.3, 5, 12, 15, 24, ±5, ±12, ±15 or ±24 V dc. Standard features include efficiency to 86%; an input/output isolation of 1,500 Vdc; and line/load regulation of ±1% max. All models have output power protection and continuous short circuit protection (with autorecovery). The MTBF (per MIL HDBK 217F) of the A600ERU series is greater than 1,000 khours.

The A600ERU family is packaged in an compact 1.25 x 0.80 x 0.40 inch 24 pin DIP compatible case. The pin-out is industry standard. Each model is specified for operation over the wide temperature range of -40 °C to +85 °C ambient. Cooling is by free-air convection.

The A600ERU series is an ideal choice for a variety of board level applications requiring compact size, a wide input range, and tight output regulation. Suitable applications would include portable equipment, test instrumentation, industrial control systems, and board
level power distribution subsystems.
