Artesyn ASA 6W-M
Artesyn Embedded Technologies has launched a range of 6 W DC-DC converters that provides OEMs with a cost-effective solution for applications in industrial and medical instrumentation requiring a certified compliance with the stringent industrial or medical safety standards.

The ASA 6W-M series provides a reinforced insulation system of 4000 Vac, insulation resistance of 10 GΩ, is rated for 2X means of operator protection (MOOP) and has medical safety certification to UL/cUL/EN/ IEC 60601-1 3rd Edition. The product family has a calculated MTBF of one million hours for high reliability applications.

Encapsulated in a compact 31.8 x 20.3 mm (1.25 x 0.8 inch) industry-standard package, the family of converters offers up to 80 percent efficiency and covers a wide input voltage range; nominally 12 V, 24 V or 48 V (9 - 18 Vdc; 18 - 36 Vdc; 36 - 75 Vdc) available in single or dual output variants.

It consists of 5 V and 12 V single output models together with +12/-12 and +15/-15 V dual output models that operate from -40 °C to 75 °C with full power available to 55 °C and power derating at higher temperatures. The family offers additional features such as the low leakage current required in medical applications, protection from overvoltage, and EMI characteristics that can meet EN 55022, class A and FCC level A.

The converters feature overload protection, are RoHS compliant and are shipped with a three-year product warranty.
