DC-DC Converter for Medical Application
Artesyn Embedded Powers' family of Medically rated dc-dc converters provide OEMs with a cost-effective solution for applications in medical instrumentation and equipement requiring a certified compliance with stringent medical safety standards.
These families provide a reinforced insulation system of 4000 Vac, insulation resistance of 10 Gohm, is rated for 2X means of operator protection (MOOP) and have medical safety certification to UL/cUL/EN/ IEC 60601-1 3rd Edition. These highly reliable product families have a calculated MTBF of one million hours.
They are encapsulated in either a compact 31.8 x 20.3 mm (1.25 x 0.8 inch) or 25.4 x 50 mm (1 x 2 inch) industry-standard package, the families offers up to 80 percent efficiency and covers a wide input voltage range; nominally 12 V, 24 V or 48 V and are available in single or dual output variants.
These dc-dc modules can operate from minus 40 degrees Celsius up to 75 degrees Celsius with full power available to 55 degrees Celsius and power derating at higher temperatures. They offer additional features such as the low leakage current required in medical applications, protection from overvoltage, and EMI characteristics that can meet EN 55022, class A and FCC level A.
