Get to know the basics of DC to DC conversion

orange line
Learn the fundamentals of DC to DC conversion. When is it needed? And what does a converter do?
DC to DC converters is used when you need to convert a DC power source from one voltage to another voltage level (or several ones). For example, the battery in your machine or vehicle, has a voltage of 24V, but the system within that machine requires 12V. In other words, you need a conversion of the direct voltage to go from 24V to 12V. This is the very essence of what DC-to-DC converters are for – to provide the voltage needed.

An example would be a forklift truck with a 48V traction battery. The system within that forklift, such as instrumentation, requires 24V. With a DC-to-DC converter you get the right level of voltage to those system.

Micropower offers DC-to-DC converters from 65W up to 700W and handles voltages from 12V to 120V. It’s the safest converters in the market with top-class efficiency (>96%). With the compact design and ruggedized housing, it’s the optimal converter for any machine or vehicle.
