Tempe, Ariz. — The AEE10W-M series of 10-watt (W) DC-DC converters from Artesyn Embedded Technologies complies with industrial or medical safety standards for instrumentation that requires a certified supplementary or reinforced insulation system.
The AEE10W-M series, housed in a 2 x 1 inch industry-standard package, offers up to 92 percent efficiency and covers a wide input voltage range from 9 to 75 Vdc with three 2:1 input voltage ratings (9 to 18 V, 18 to 36 V and 36 to 75 V). The series offers fully regulated single or dual output voltage models.
The reinforced insulation system, critical for medical equipment applications, is rated for 300 Vac working voltage and 4200 Vac RMS. The AEE10W-M series is certified to the 3rd Edition UL/CSA/EN/IEC 60601-1 medical safety standard and is rated for 2X means of operator protection (MOOP). The series provides a calculated MTBF to MIL-HDBK-217F of greater than one million hours.
The AEE10W-M series consists of single 5- and 12-V single output models and +12/-12 and +15/-15 V dual output models. The DC-DC modules can operate from minus 40 degrees Celsius up to 75 degrees Celsius with full power available to 60 degrees Celsius, with power derating at higher temperatures. Other features include low leakage current, over-voltage protection, and EMI characteristics that can meet EN 55022, class A and FCC level A.
