Alfatronix 24-12V 6A Converter (Non Isolated)
Low cost unit w/o isolation
These products offer a convenient way to operate mass produced 12Vdc equipment such as cell phones, in car entertainment, professional communication and telematics equipment, refrigerators, televisions etc. from the 24Vdc mobile electrical systems found on diesel engined vehicles and vessels.
There are no ventilation holes to permit stray objects, dust or water droplets to enter the case. There are no external fuses to be tampered with. Fuses will only blow if there is a fault so there is no need to make them accessible.
All PowerVerters are enclosed in a rugged aluminium extrusion. The low mass Surface Mount Technology components are also less prone to damage from vibration and shock, further increasing the reliability of the units.
3Amp units are excellent for charging mobile phones, while 6A units suit a variety of mobile radio applications.
Galvanically isolated units are suitable for marine applications and come complete with the green tamperproof label for petrochemical applications.
All the units consume an off load current of less than 15mA, which is probably less than the self discharge current of the vehicle’s battery. In most cases this can be ignored, speeding the installation by removing the need to fit a remote switch. All products fit onto a ‘Click ‘n’ Fit mounting clip which is fixed in three points allowing it to be mounted on uneven surfaces. It is easy to fit the clip into awkward places and then simply click the unit into position. A red LED indicates when there is output from the converter. This gives reassurance to the installation enginer and speeds fault finding.
