    Powerbox’s rugged power modules are perfect for harsh environments in extreme industrial automotive applications

    Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies and a leading force for four decades in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has introduced a 400W DC/DC converter for use in industrial automotive applications in extreme environments. Designed for free air convection cooling, the ENA400-M is packaged in an aluminum enclosure with built in heatsink and potted with heat conductive polyurethane to improving thermal dissipation. Ratified for IP67 operation and with a power efficiency of 95%, the DC/DC converter can be operated in ambient temperatures from -40 to +50 degrees C using free air convection. Suitable for 24V and 48V industrial bus voltages, the converter meets ISO7637-2 and EN12895. The ENA400-M’s high efficiency and highly optimized thermal design contribute to an increased lifetime in harsh environments.

    Powerbox’s COTS/MOTS power supplies make meeting highly demanding applications a reality

    Powerbox, one of Europe’s largest power supply companies and a leading force for four decades in optimizing power solutions for demanding applications, has announced the release of its new Defense Line of ruggedized power solutions for highly demanding environments. The launch includes seven series of new power supplies, comprising three DC/DC (DAA-DAB-DAC), four AC/DC (DBA-DBB-DBC-DBD) and embracing a power range from 50W up to 1,200W. In metal chassis format with a baseplate for conduction cooling, the DAx and DBx series can be used with a baseplate operating temperature range of -40 up to +100 degrees C. For extremely demanding applications they can be configured with a conformal coating and mechanically ruggedized as well as electrically ruggedizing to withstand harsh transients and demanding EMC performance requirements as required with most common defense, marine, avionics, rugged industrial and railway standards. Designed for high availability, short time-to-market and to meet commercial and military off-the-shelf (COTS/MOTS) business models, the modular build style of the DAx and DBx series allows up to six outputs which can be connected in serial, parallel or used as a standalone output – very versatile products.
