Switching regulators now available as open-frame option
PEAK electronics, a supplier of DC/DC converters, AC/DC converters, switching regulators, and LED drivers, has added to its portfolio and now also offers its proven switching regulators as open frame versions. The new PSR-78xxC(-OF) series switching regulators have an output current of 500mA and the slightly larger PSR1-78xxC(-OF) versions have an output current of 1000mA.
The price-optimised switching regulators are now also available with an even wider input voltage range of 4.75-36VDC compared to the models offered so far. Depending on the application, the output voltage covers the range from 3.3-15VDC.
The efficiency of the two switching regulator series is up to 95% (500mA) and up to 96% (1000mA) in an operating temperature range from -40 to 85°C.
The slightly larger 1000mA PSR1-78xxC types can optionally be ordered with 90° pins and open up a space-saving alternative where component height is critical.
Both series are pin-to-pin compatible with the common 78xx standard.
