The ERM100 and 150 provide a robust, high efficiency solution for design engineers, giving them reliable power in a fully integrated module.
The ERM100 and ERM150 series are compact quarter-brick, fully encapsulated 100 W and 150 W DC/DC modules optimized for rail and mass transportation applications. The ERM100 and ERM150 quarter brick modules comply with many industry standards and provide reliable, high efficiency solutions for train system designers. Both converters have a European Railway Standard EN50155 compliant input voltage range of 36 to 160 Vdc.
The modules have an efficiency of up to 91.5% and operate with a fixed switching frequency and deliver a single, continuous power output. The ERM100 and ERM150 have no minimum load requirement and exhibit low ripple and noise characteristics. The baseplate optimized for contact cooling simplifies thermal management, while the heatsink version is available for designs that require more stringent heat management.
“Rail and other mass transportation applications present requirements for both rolling stock and infrastructure that are often mixed with continuous use over long periods of time,” said Joe Voyles, vice president of marketing, products. to transform the power of the Advanced Energy industry. “The ERM100 and 150 provide a robust, high efficiency solution for design engineers working in this sector, giving them reliable power in a fully integrated module.”
Both modules offer reinforced insulation and high EMC immunity, the ERM100 and ERM150 address the challenging electrical and physical operating environment of railway applications. In addition to using only UL94 V-0 rated flame retardant materials for their packaging, the converters are EN 61373-rated for vibration and thermal shock. The baseplate optimized for contact cooling simplifies thermal management, while the heatsink version is available for designs that require more stringent heat management.
