Murata: DC-DC converters

Murata has launched its latest encapsulated DC-DC converters for rail and industrial applications. The 150 Watt IRH series from Murata Power Solutions provides power conversion efficiency in an industry-standard half-brick pinout, company officials said in a press release.

The converters use the latest component and packaging technologies in a fixed-frequency switching power supply architecture. The IRH series offers the user flexibility and reliability in design implementation, Murata officials said.

Available with standard and flanged baseplate options, the converters feature protection against short circuits, over-voltage and over-temperature.

"The encapsulated circuit design makes them shock- and vibration-tolerant and improves EMI and thermal performance," Murata officials said.

In addition, the converters meet the requirements of the EN50155 standard for rail applications.
