750Vdc input railway DC-DC converters offer traction voltage required for trams, metros, light rail vehicles and mining locomotives

The HVI 500R-FX series high input voltage railway DC-DC converters meet the requirements of EN50155 for electronic equipment used on rolling stock. They accept 750Vdc input voltage (525V – 975Vdc range), which is the traction voltage typically required for mass transit vehicles such as trams, metros and light rail, and for mining locomotives.

The 2kW AC-DC Battery Charger and 300W, high input voltage DC-DC converter were used in the SRZero all-electric car (EV), the all-electric vehicle built by Racing Green Endurance (RGE) team of Imperial College (UK). The RGE team successfully drove their SRZero, long-range all-electric car along the 26,000 km Pan American Highway.

200W, DC-DC Railway Converter in Plug-in (Eurocard) format for 19

This series of 200W railway DC-DC converters in plug-in (Eurocard) format are designed for 19″ rack-mount applications. They deliver any DC output up to 130Vdc and operate from railway supply voltages with wide EN50155 input ranges. A built-in redundancy diode allows for parallel connection to achieve higher output power or N+1 redundant operation.
