Features

Thanks to a large input voltage range, they offer the possibility to connect directly to the battery terminals. The converter performs then as a battery charger.
Reduced dimensions and weight contribute to an easy integration on board
It is also possible to install up to 4 converters in parallel to increase the power available.


Input voltage :

12 Vdc input at nominal rate : 10 to 18 Vdc
24 Vdc input at nominal rate : 18 to 36 Vdc

Output voltage :
12, 24 Vdc nominal.
Voltage adjustment by internal potentiometer.

Dielectric rigidity : Input/Output : >1000 Vdc

Cooling : Natural

Presentation : In closed housing ; fixing with screw terminals

Input protection : Reverse polarity. EMI filter. Fuse.

Output protection : Against short‐circuit, against overload by current limitation, against overvoltage

Standard compliant : Safety : EN 60950. EMC : EN 50081‐2.

All converters have an input/output galvanic insulation : the negative pole of the input is totally separated from the output. This avoids any risk of electro-magnetic disruption in particular with communication and navigation instruments. 
The wide input voltage range (from 10 to 18 Vdc for 12 V models) allows to connect the inverter directly to the alternator output, with or without batteries inbetween. 

Plastimo tips & tricks

Converter : stabiliser / regulator, used typically in 3 circumstances :

  •  To reduce the voltage,
  • To boost the voltage,
  • To stabilise the voltage.

Adjustment range of the voltage output by means of a potentiometer : 

  •  12 V : 10.77 to 16.17 Vdc
  • 24 V : 20.50 to 32.25 Vdc

When used to stabilise, the inverter can provide a stable DC voltage with no variation. This is particularly adapted to specific equipment such as electronic navigation or communication devices : a generator or even a battery may deliver an unstable voltage that would be incompatible with the input tolerance of some highly sensitive equipment.
