With demand increasing for electric and hybrid technology advancements, Deutronic USA introduced a new line of DC/DC converter products for use in rigorous applications. “Our new line of DC/DC converters are well suited to the electrification needs of off-highway commercial vehicles,” Deutronic USA general manager Zubin Verma said. “Their compact design, combined with high power density, are very robust and protected against rough environmental factors such as vibration, shock, high-temperature variations including humidity, and aggressive atmospheric conditions.”

One of Deutronic’s converters, the DVCHx3, was named the 2021 Product of the Year in the Power category by Elektronik magazine. With an interlock function, it also offers short-circuit, overtemperature and no load protection or self-protection features. This converter is rated IP65, IP67 and IP6K9K for dust and waterproof protection in adverse conditions.

Another feature of the DVCHx3 converter is cooling via the contact surface. Unlike purely liquid-cooled systems, its cooling system can be flexibly adapted to the application.
