TDK Corporation announces the introduction of the 750 W rated TDK-Lambda i7A series of non-isolated buck DC-DC converters, packaged in the industry-standard 1/16th brick footprint. The output voltage of these 24 V nominal input step-down converters can be adjusted from 3.3 V to 18 V with a maximum current of 45 A. However, since the i7A is a step-down converter, the input voltage must always be at least 4 to 6 V higher than the desired output voltage.

DC-DC converters are used in many applications; telecom, data communications, test and measurement, process control, semiconductor fabrication, industrial manufacturing, medical devices and battery powered equipment. They offer a simple way of deriving additional low power outputs from a higher power AC-DC supply, for example a 24 V output driving motors, relays or pumps. Alternatively if the system is powered by a 12 V battery, DC-DC converters can provide stable, regulated voltages during the...

Su­per­ca­pac­i­tors may be com­bined with bat­ter­ies to add the ad­van­tages of high ca­pac­ity and low in­ter­nal re­sis­tance. Low leak­age cur­rents will ex­tend bat­tery life in this ap­pli­ca­tion. HY-LINE Power Com­po­nents now of­fers a new model op­ti­mized specif­i­cally for this use case.

Weidmüller Klippon® Connect terminal blocks AITB for building installation. The requirements for building installations are manifold: Energy efficiency and safety are among them, as are flexibility and convenience, to name only the most important. The necessary infrastructure in a building requires numerous main, sub-distribution and small distribution boards as well as meter cabinets. What they all have in common is that they must accommodate very many functions in a very limited space.
