MONTREAL, Canada - Aimtec expands its 1 watt product offering with the addition of two new series featuring continuous output short circuit protection - a critical safety feature that protects the load circuit and the converter from dangerously high current levels.

Offered in a choice of ultra miniature packages, Aimtec's AM1DR-RZ (SIP7: 19.50 x 7.20 x 9.50mm) and AM1MR-Z (DIP14: 20.30 x 10.16 x 6.90mm) operate at the most commonly designed fixed inputs of 5, 12, and 24VDC (with ±10% tolerance).

Highly regulated and protected output voltages 3.3, 5, 7.2, 9.12, 15VDC feature a tight load regulation of ±0.5% to ensure that stable voltages are delivered throughout the operating range, under all types loading conditions.

Each of the 18 models in the AM1DR-RZ and AM1MR-Z series feature input/output isolation of 1000VDC, allowing these versatile power supplies to be configured for reverse polarity on the output or to be wired in series to create higher output voltages.

Operating within an industrial temperature of -40°C to +85°C without derating, both the AM1DR-RZ and AM1MR-Z series are engineered to meet the IEC 60950-1 standard for use with indoor or outdoor telecommunication networks or cable distribution systems. The components MTBF of greater than 1,500,000 hours further supports their use in applications where access for maintenance is limited or restricted.

RoHS compliant, all models undergo 100% production testing of their parameters to ensure the high reliability that is associated with the Aimtec brand, while remaining competitively priced starting at $5.58/1000+ pieces. Samples are available from stock for immediately delivery and can be ordered from Aimtec's global network of Franchised Distributors.
