RS Components introduces high-voltage regulated DC power supplies with reinforced isolation

Internal filter enables EN 55032 EMC compliance for industrial applications

LONDON, UK, 29 October 2019 – RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, has introduced the new TRI Series of high-voltage regulated DC/DC converters (https://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/power-supplies-transformers/dc-dc-converters/isolated-dc-dc-converters/?sra=p&applied-dimensions=4291304211,4291304208,4291304203,4291304219,4291304213) from power supply specialist TRACO Power. Aimed primarily at electronic engineers designing IT equipment for industrial, instrumentation and transportation applications, TRI Series power converters combine a sophisticated reinforced isolation system, able to withstand high test voltages, with high common-mode transient immunity.

The TRI Series offers five power options: 3.5W, 6W, 10W, 15W and 20W. The first three options, housed in compact 1.25 x 0.80 x 0.40-inch DIP-24 packages, provide 7071VDC regulated I/O isolation and 9000VDC peak isolation of up to one second duration. The 15W and 20W models, with a 2.00 x 1.00-inch footprint, feature 5940VDC I/O isolation and 8000VDC peak isolation up to one second. All models have a 1000VAC RMS working voltage and common-mode transient immunity (dv/dt) of 15kV/µs.

Other TRI Series characteristics include low no-load power consumption ranging from 96–192mW for 3.5W models to 240–480mW for 20W versions; high efficiencies of up to 90%; and overload, overvoltage and short circuit protection. Mean time between failure is over one million hours.

TRI Series DC/DC converters offer 12V (9–18V), 24V (18–36V) and 48V (36–75V) input voltage options with a wide 2:1 input range, and precisely regulated output voltages of 5.1V, 12V or 15V single mode or ±12V or ±15V dual mode. A 4.5–9V input range option is available for 3.5W models.

An internal filter enables all TRI power supplies to comply with EN 55032 class A EMC emission requirements for multimedia equipment used in non-residential environments — including professional IT, broadcast, audio-visual and lighting control products — without any external components. All models are safety qualified to IEC/EN/UL 62368-1 with IECEE CB Report, operating safely over a wide temperature range from –40°C to +85°C.

All TRI Series DC/DC converters are supported by a three-year warranty provided by TRACO Power. They are stocking now at RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

The Cryptography Handbook

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The Cryptography Handbook is designed to be a quick study guide for a product development engineer, taking an engineering rather than theoretical approach. In this series, we start with a general overview and then define the characteristics of a secure cryptographic system. We then describe various cryptographic concepts and provide an implementation-centric explanation of physically unclonable function (PUF) technology. We hope that this approach will give the busy engineer a quick understanding of the basic concepts of cryptography and provide a relatively fast way to integrate security in his/her design.

Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Electrical-thermal co-simulation can dramatically improve the system design process, allowing thermal design adaptation to be done much earlier. The Cadence Celsius Thermal Solver is a complete electrical-thermal co-simulation solution for the full hierarchy of electronic systems from ICs to physical enclosures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with CT Kao of Cadence Design Systems about how the Celsius Thermal Solver can help detect and mitigate thermal issues early in the design process.
