500 Watt DC/DC Converter for Electric Vehicles can be Paralleled for up to 5000 Watts

Green Watt Power, a division of Powerland Technology, Inc. announces the EVD500 Series of fully encapsulated, ruggedized DC/DC converters for Electric Vehicle applications.  The EVD500 has two input ranges, 30 to 65Vdc and 50 to 130Vdc, with output voltages of 13.5, 14.2, or 27.5Vdc to power auxiliary EV functions such as lights, instruments, accessories, etc. In addition, unlike most DC/DC converters in the EV market, the EVD500 has a constant current function, so it can connect directly to a battery load. The EVD 500 also has superior low battery conservation with a Quiescent Current Draw of less than 30uA.  

The EVD500 is fully isolated input to output and protected by Over Voltage Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Input Reverse Polarity Protection and Over Temperature Protection.  

Efficiencies for the EVD500 run as high as 93% and the unit features a metal baseplate for excellent heat transfer to a metal mounting surface.  All models are housed in an IP66 enclosure for protection against water intrusion. The EVD500 provides a cost effective solution for higher power requirements.  Multiple EVD500 converters can be wired in parallel with no external circuitry required to obtain up to 5,000 Watts.  All models feature Remote ON/OFF and are ROHS compliant.

Line and Load Regulation for the EVD500 is 1% and 7% respectively.  Output Ripple and Noise is 100mV peak to peak typical.  Load Transient Response is 10ms.  Start Up and Rise Time is 500ms.  The Operating Ambient Temperature Range of the EVD500 is -40 to +75C.  The MTBF per MIL-HDBK-217F @ 25C Ground Benign is 150,000 hours.  The case size is 7.48 x 2.99 x 1.71 inches (190.0 x 76.0 x 43.5 mm).  The EVD 500 weight is 1.25kg.  The EVD500 can withstand 8Gs in x, y and z axis from 0 to 200Hz for one minute.  Designed to meet IEC, UL, and CSA requirements with EMC Emission: EN12895, EN55022; EMC Immunity: EN12895, and ESD: EN12895 (±4KV Contact, ±15KV Air).

Units are available from stock to 8 weeks.  For more information, please contact Green Watt/Powerland North America at 1-310-881-3890 or sales@greenwattpower.com.  For more information on the EVD500 go to https://greenwattpower.com/wp-content/uploads/Datasheet-EVD-500.pdf  or the Green Watt Power website:  https://greenwattpower.com
