DC-DC converters establish a new benchmark for railway power

18 February 2020

Relec announces it is to add the Melcher XRCM60 series DC-DC converter series to its stock portfolio.

The ultra-wide-input 60W DC-DC converters cover all traction battery voltages, for ease of use and cost-efficient design

The XRCM60 series modules are suitable for the most cost-sensitive applications, without any compromise in quality. They are designed to operate across all standard DC battery voltages, i.e. from 24V through to 110V dc, and provide 60W of DC power, ideal for industrial and transportation applications. 

The XRCM60 Series from Bel Power Solutions is part of the established Melcher range, which has been a recognised name and a market leader in the railway industry for the past 40 years.

The XRCM60 has been designed to the same strict criteria as the established M, Q, P, R, S & K Series modules, but with a ‘one size fits all’ input voltage range and cost-optimized case construction.

It has a wide input range of 16.8V to 137.5V (continuous).

The converters are RoHS-compliant and are supplied in a compact, cost-efficient case for use in space-constrained and harsh operating environments, typical of the railway and industrial markets.

Hold time across the entire input range is 20ms. The high-efficiency converters operate across a wide temperature range of -40 to +70°C.

They also feature full protection against over-temperature, over-voltage, over-current and short circuit events.

In addition to railway and general industrial applications, the XRCM60 series is suitable for use in a wide variety of projects, including military and construction vehicles, forklift trucks, outside broadcast equipment, fuel cells and renewable energy equipment.

Melcher has been a market leader in the railway industry for over 40 years. These latest additions to the proven Melcher DC-DC converter series comply with EN50155, EN50121-3-2 and EN45545-2, for railway operation. They carry a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The XRCM60 series will be available in the UK from Relec Electronics in March 2020. If you have an application, and would like to register for a sample, please contact Relec.

Relec Electronics has worked closely with key suppliers for over 40 years, specialising in many industries; automotive, industrial and defence.

There is a team of dedicated engineers ready to support engineers throughout the design process. Relec also carries stock of all standard modules and accessories for next-day delivery.
