Product Spotlight: Dc/dc Converters for Easy Paralleling

July 10, 2008
The Load Share Series provides a modular “plug-and-play” solution for paralleling multiple dc/dc converters, which increases current capability and/or power-system redundant load sharing.

Six models cover 3.3 to 48-V input voltages, achieve 99% efficiency, use aluminum substrate technology for thermal management, and have 60-A Maximum output current. The units use “active load sharing” with low-side sensing for accurate load sharing with minimal load regulation issues.

The Load Share models come in a …-brick package measuring 2.28 1.45 0.50 in. Baseplate operating temperature is -40 to 100°C. Calex Mfg. Co. Inc., 2401 Stanwell Dr., Concord, CA 94520, (800) 542-3355,
