12000W Power Converter Efficient and Robust Design for Critical Applications

Ashland, MA — Schaefer, Inc. has introduced the C/B5800 Series of 12,000 Watt DC/DC converter, AC/DC power supply and battery charging products. The Series’ robust design, using industrial grade components, yields a highly efficient, space-saving solution for even the most extreme environments in industries such as railway controls and communications equipment (onboard and trackside), military applications, alternative energy applications, transportation, and process control systems.

C/B5800 SeriesThe C/B5800 Series features an extensive lineup of over 100 standard models, with requests for modifications also available. Five standard DC input voltage options span a range from 80VDC-800VDC. AC input models offer either 1-Phase or 3-Phase options as well as battery charging models. Single output voltages encompass a range from 12-400VDC. All outputs are adjustable and fully regulated to 0.2% or better (load) and 0.1% (line).

DC/DC and AC/DC models have remote sense capability. The C/B5800 Series has comprehensive protection circuitry and efficiencies are up to 95%. Operating temperature is -20C to +75C, with -40C to +75C as an option.

The units are packaged in a space saving 6U or 9U rack module or a wall mount module. Options include parallel / redundant operation, further mechanical ruggedization, inhibit, Power-OK / DC-OK alarms, system reset signaling, and programming/monitoring functions.

Mechanical and electrical modifications to standard modules are readily available upon request. In addition, Schaefer can design and manufacture fully custom solutions.
