MONTREAL, Canada - Aimtec's newest family of high efficiency (up to 89%), DC/DC converters, AM15C-Z and AM15CW-Z, provide a high power density of 37.5W/in3 in an ultra compact package (1" x 1"), a real estate savings of up to 50% compared to other standard 15 watt converters in the market.

The AM15C-Z series features wide 2:1 input voltages ranges of 9~18V, 18V~36V and 36~75V, while the AM15CW-Z series features ultra-wide 4:1 input voltage ranges of 9V~36V and 18V~75V for use in a large array of industrial and IT applications.

Both series feature highly regulated and protected single and dual output voltages of 3.3, 5, 12 and 15VDC which are precisely controlled with a tight load regulation of ±0.5% for the single output models and ±1% for the dual output models, with no minimum load required. With an I/O isolation of 1600VDC, these robust converters offer the additional output protections of continuous short circuit protection with auto-recovery restart, over current and over voltage protection with a strict line load regulation of ±0.2 %.

Both series are designed to operate within a wide industrial operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, which is essential for ensuring reliable product performance in the extreme weather conditions associated with outdoor applications.

Positive logic remote ON/OFF functionality adds value for portable power applications by helping to conserve the devices precious battery power.

The AM15CW-Z (pdf) and the AM15C-Z (pdf) hold the CE mark for the EN55022 class A standard for information technology equipment, in addition to being designed to meet the IEC/EN60950-1 standard for industrial applications.

RoHS compliant, all models undergo rigorous testing of their parameters to ensure the high reliability that is associated with the Aimtec brand, while remaining competitively priced starting at $26.63/1000+ pieces. Samples are available from stock for immediately delivery and can be ordered from Aimtec's global network of Franchised Distributors.
