Wide input DC/DC converters can fulfill large scale PV projects
Available immediately from MicroPower Direct, the MPV1560RI4 series is a family of 15W DC/DC converters specifically designed to meet the needs of large scale photovoltaic (PV) systems.
The MPV1560RI4 series provides the high performance features, compact size, rugged packaging, high reliability and economy required for commercial/industrial grade photovoltaic applications, says MicroPower Direct.
They have a wide input of 100 to 1000V DC, together with 4kV isolation. The DC/DC converters are supplied in compact packaging. Models in the MPV1560RI4 series can be configured for chassis or DIN rail mounting.
Three models provide outputs of 12, 15 or 24V DC. Characteristics for high performance include 4000V AC isolation, tight line and load regulation, and high efficiency.
All models meet the requirements of EN 62109 (including units on adapter boards) and are protected for over-voltage, over-current and short circuit faults. The MPV1560RI4 mean time between failure is greater than 300-khours (per MIL HDBK 217F).
All MPV1560RI4 models are packaged in a compact 2.75 x 1.89 x 0.92-inch, encapsulated case. Each model is specified for operation over the wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70 degree C ambient. Cooling is by free-air convection. All models are available on chassis mount or DIN rail mount adapters.
All MicroPower Direct products are designed to provide long, reliable field life. The company adds that considerable attention is given to the proper selection, derating, and layout of all circuit components. In addition, extensive reliability screening is also performed on all modules as a routine part of the production process.
