REDMOND, Wash., 17 Sept. 2013. Crane Aerospace & Electronics has enhanced its MTR Series of high-reliability, 30-watt, DC-DC converters “to provide broader compliance to industry standards and in support of more application requirements of its global users,” says Ed Fuhr, Crane’s vice president of power solutions in Redmond, Wash.
“The main improvements,” Fuhr clarifies, “were to expand input voltage range support by 20 percent to 50 volts, as well as provide more robust input transient protection, now up to 80 volts, without otherwise affecting the form, fit, or function of the product.” The enhanced MTR Series now meets the overvoltage transient requirements of MIL-STD-704A, DO-160 as well as international standards.
The MTR Series is one of the most widely used high-reliability DC-DC converters in aerospace and defense applications. Available flanged or non-flanged, the MTR Series singles and duals provide up to 30 watts in a small, 2.1 by 1.1 by 0.4 inch (slightly larger for flanged) hermetically sealed case. Fully isolated magnetic feedback, inhibit, and synchronization functions and operation over the full military temperature range of -55°C to +125°C ensure reliable performance in demanding environments. The MTR Series are available on defense, land, and maritime (DLA) standard microcircuit drawings (SMDs).
