Power Converter Uses Industrial Grade Components for Critical Applications
Schaefer, Inc. has introduced the C/B5800 Series of 12,000 Watt DC/DC converter, AC/DC power supply and battery charging products. The Series’ robust design, using industrial grade components, yields an efficient solution for even the most extreme environments in industries such as railway controls and communications equipment (onboard and trackside), military applications, alternative energy applications, transportation, and process control systems. The C/B5800 Series features over 100 standard models, with requests for modifications also available. Five standard DC input voltage options span a range from 80 VDC to 800 VDC. AC input models offer either 1-Phase or 3-Phase options as well as battery charging models. Single output voltages encompass a range from 12 V to 400 VDC. All outputs are adjustable and fully regulated to 0.2 percent or better (load) and 0.1 percent (line). DC/DC and AC/DC models have remote sense capability. The C/B5800 Series has protection circuitry, and efficiencies are up to 95 percent. The operating temperature is -20C to +75C, with -40C to +75C as an option. The units are packaged in a 6U or 9U rack module or a wall mount module. Options include parallel / redundant operation, further mechanical ruggedization, inhibit, Power-OK / DC-OK alarms, system reset signaling, and programming/monitoring functions.
