Isolated DC-DC converters convert a source of direct current (DC) from one voltage to another and contain an electrical barrier between the input and output to improve safety. They are suitable for a range of applications, including telecommunication equipment, industrial equipment, and consumer electronics.
RS offer a comprehensive selection of high-quality Converters from industry-leading brands including TDK-Lambda, XP Power, Murata Power Solutions, Recom, and many more.
What are they used for?
Isolated DC-DC converters are used within equipment and devices containing different circuits or sub-circuits where it is necessary to convert the voltage of a DC supply from one level to another. For converting AC to DC, an AC-DC converter would be used.
Types of isolated DC-DC converters
Isolated DC-DC converters come in a wide range of input and output voltages in both single outputs, dual outputs. We also offer medical and railway-approved converters for safety-critical applications.
Package or Module Types
Isolated DC-DC converters come in many shapes and packages to suit every eventuality. Some of the most popular are:
- Full and half brick
DC-DC converters are used in many different environments and applications so they need to be easy to mount or install. Our products come in a range of mounting options including:
- Chassis mount
- DIN-Rail mount
- Flange mount
- PCB mount
- Surface mount
