Phoenix Contact’s new Quint dc-dc converters incorporate proven Quint features, like power boost, selective fuse breaking (SFB) technology, and an integrated passive interface, for improved reliability and easy configuration. The Quint dc-dc converters provide a precise dc voltage, says the company. They can alter voltage levels, amplify voltage at the end of long cables, or enable the creation of independent supply systems by means of electrical isolation.
According to Phoenix Contact, the new devices offer a dynamic power boost with up to 200% of the rated current for up to five seconds when starting heavy loads. A secure passive interface makes it easy to configure monitoring alarms specific to any application. User-definable settings allow monitoring of real-time current, power, or voltage using a 4- to 20-mA analog output. Operating hours, dc input voltage, overvoltage, and temperature derating can be monitored with dry contact outputs.
The Quint dc-dc converters can also be made tamperproof by locking out the pushbuttons on the front panel and creating a user-defined password. The proven SFB technology delivers six times the rated current for up to 15 ms to selectively trigger standard circuit breakers. The static boost with up to 125% of the rated current is available at all times, allowing the system to be expanded.
The converter, whichs are available in either push-in or screw connection technology, have hazardous location approvals.
