Schaefer announces the PRC-120 Series of DC/DC converters that provide 120W of power in a compact, chassis mount package. The PRC-120 Series has versions that meet industrial (EN60950) or rail (EN50155) standards.

Standard nominal input voltages are 24VDC, 48VDC, 72VDC, and 110VDC. The PRC-120 Series provides highly efficient (up to 92%) conversion to adjustable 5VDC, 12VDC, 24VDC and 48VDC outputs that are tightly regulated to 0.2% or better.

All models in the PRC-120 Series boast comprehensive protection circuitry against short circuit/overload, input reverse polarity, input under voltage and undercurrent. Remote sense, remote inhibit, and LED indicators are part of the standard design. A wide operating temperature of up to -25C to +70C allows for installations in extreme conditions and meets EN50155 Class 3. Emissions compliance to EN61000-6-3 and EN60121-3-2 meets both industrial and rail standards and minimizes interference to other sensitive equipment.

The compact size of the PRC-120 Series measures 6.30” x 3.94” x 1.38”. In addition to chassis mounting, an optional DIN rail clip, mounting base, or Eurocard front panel are available.

Schaefer’s full family of DC/DC converters also includes other modules starting at 45W of power and increases in ratings up to high power (30kW) designs.

Modifications to standard units are available. In addition, Schaefer can design and manufacture fully custom solutions.
