Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. introduces a series of ultra-miniature isolated single and dual-output high-voltage DC-DC converters. The Advanced Energy UltraVolt© AEQ series optimizes power conversion in a wide range of medical, life science, industrial, and semiconductor equipment applications.
Devices in the AEQ series supply up to 600 VDC at 0.5 W output power from an input voltage of +5 VDC and offer several benefits compared to other small form factor DC-DC converters. These include an output proportional to the control pin voltage, giving complete programmability from zero to the maximum rated value. Output stability is within 5% at maximum Vout and full load. A high input-to-output isolation rating of ±1500 VDC supports precise output voltage control and meets safety levels required for handheld equipment, in addition to supporting compliance in medical and life science applications.
The AEQ series comprises unipolar 100 V to 600 V models and bipolar versions from ±50 V to ±300 V, with higher power and voltage levels planned for subsequent releases. Housed in a 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. x 0.5 in. (cube) solid vacuum encapsulated package, the converters are protected against shock and vibration. All devices have UL/cUL and IEC-62368-1 safety approvals.
