AlfaTronix DC-DC converter PV series

AlfaTronix DC-DC Converters 24V-12V

The AlfaTronix converters in the PV series make it easy to operate standard versions of 12V devices such as mobile phones, built-in radios and CD players, or 12V refrigerators in vehicles with a 24V electrical system or aircraft with a 28V wiring system. The voltage converters operate with low heat emission thanks to their efficient switched mode power supply technology with SMD circuit boards throughout. This achieves high efficiency as well as high resistance to mechanical shocks.

All of the products bear the CE mark of conformity and the e mark, thereby fulfilling the current requirements of the certifying authorities.

All of the devices consume less than 15mA standby current, i.e. less than the self-discharge of a vehicle's battery.

These AlfaTronix products are all mounted using the tried-and-trusted 'Click 'n' fit' mounting clip. The three-hole clip bracket enables it to be installed quickly and safely on non-level surfaces and in spots that are difficult to reach. Once the clip has been installed successfully, the device simply clicks into the bracket.

The green LED indicates the function of the voltage converter.

Typical Applications

Installation of mobile phones and professional communication applications, remote metering technology, refrigerators, TVs etc. in trucks and buses, forestry and agricultural vehicles, fire engines, police and rescue services as well as boats and yachts, and a wide range of industrial applications.
