Power Supply Product: 600W Model Added to 200 - 425VDC Input DC-DC Converter Series (PH-A Series)

  • Industry Smallest in its class with high power density and ultra-small dimensions (1/2 brick size)
  • Conducted cooling in a board mount type
  • Compliance to EN62477-1 OVC III Safety Standards (overvoltage category III)
Power Supply Product: 600W Model Added to 200 - 425VDC Input DC-DC Converter Series (PH-A Series)</h1>

December 20, 2019

TDK Corporation announces the introduction of 600W model to the TDK-Lambda PH-A series of DC-DC power modules with high voltage DC input. PH-A Series range now include 50, 75, 100, 300 and 600W outputs.600W model will be available for sales from January 2020 through TDK-Lambda Corporation.

PH600A280 designed with TDK’s original transformer configuration (patent pending), optimized mechanism design, and achieved industry’s 1/2 brick size, smallest design in its class (50% smaller than TDK’s current products). Power conversion efficiency is also improved 2%. This will contribute to the miniaturization and energy saving at customer devices.

Like the 300W models, 600W model has also been certified to meet the EN62477-1 Safety Standards (overvoltage category III). This will be beneficial to the customer for obtaining IEC60204-1 International Machine Safety Standards. By having PH600A280, Insulation transformer may be removed from the distribution board. This will help customer devices be smaller, lighter and lower in total cost.

The customer can also design their external input e-cap bank to suit the required hold-up time. This flexibility is good for hold-up time critical application such as Robot controllers and Factory Automation.

Main applications

  • Robot controllers, Factory Automation (FA), Telecommunication (ICT) equipment, Semiconductor manufacturing equipment, etc.

Main features and benefits

  • Ultra-small: Industry smallest in its class, 1/2 brick size with 600W output (50% smaller compared to current products)
  • Highly efficient: 93% (280 VDC input)
  • Conducted cooling in a board mount type
  • Safety standard certifications: UL/CSA/EN62368-1, EN62477-1 OVC III (overvoltage category III)
  • Wide operating temperature range: -40 to +100°C (base plate temperature)
