DC/DC converter features three selectable output voltages

The new DC/DC converter DC160WS from Bicker Elektronik delivers fanless 160W continuous power at a constant high efficiency of up to 98%. Developed for long term 24/7 continuous operation in the extended temperature range from -20 to +70°C, the DC160WS is equipped with premium components of highest quality (MTBF >410,000h).

In addition to the ultra-wide input range of 6-36VDC, the compact converter offers three jumper-selectable output voltages of 12, 19 or 24 VDC, so that virtually any equivalent single-voltage mainboard or computer system can be powered.

Typical fields of application are demanding applications in industrial automation, mobile applications for transport, construction site and agricultural vehicles, pharmaceutical and food industry as well as kiosk / POS / POI applications.

Compact DC/DC converter for industrial and mobile applications

The DC160WS is well suited for use in mobile applications within the 12V or 24V vehicle electrical system as well as for industrial applications with voltage fluctuations in 12V or 24V DC supply systems. With a footprint of only 95x45 mm and a height of 1" (25.4mm), the highly efficient DC/DC converter can be perfectly integrated into compact and closed IPC and Embedded BoxPC systems.

Optimal heat management with contact cooling

The thermally optimised design ensures minimal heat build-up and high reliability. For optimal heat dissipation between the highly efficient power components on the circuit board bottom and the chassis of the application, the DC160WS already includes a suitable heat transfer pad and 5x distance bolts. In particular, the additional mounting hole in the center of the PCB ensures a permanently safe thermal connection to the housing.

Connectivity and safety

The DC160WS has stable screw terminals at the input and output - customer-specific connection plugs are available on request. A polarity protection at input, short-circuit, overvoltage and overtemperature protection are integrated as standard. In addition, a remote on/off signal input for external wiring is available.

Long term availability and value added services

Bicker Elektronik grants a three-year warranty on the DC160WS, as well as a long term availability of at least five years. In addition, Bicker Elektronik offers comprehensive value added services, especially for system developers. These include personal on-site consulting during the design-in process by experienced sales engineers and subsequent project support by the sales, development and service teams of Bicker Elektronik.

As part of the Power+Board programme, Bicker Elektronik customers receive tested and perfectly matching PSU + Mainboard bundles plus comprehensive industrial-grade accessories from a single source. On request, the specialists from Bicker Elektronik realize customer-specific special solutions and also offer extensive laboratory and measuring services for complete customer systems.
