POWER CONVERSION


Managing new demand for 12V in automotive industry

DC/DC CONVERTER OR EQUALIZER?


The demand on 12V supply voltage is increasing, due to the equipment, comfort appliances coming from car industry and other legacy truck needs.

For modest current needs, a conventional 24V-12V DC/DC converter could be the optimum solution. However, when the combination of loads on the 12V network results in very high power needs for temporary moments of time, a system design with a conventional DC/DC-converter will lead to voluminous, heavy, and expensive solutions due to “worst case” requirements (temporary Ampere peak need). For those applications, 24V-12V Equalizer is the solution

GENERIC SOLUTIONS DEDICATED TO ENERGY CONVERSION


 

Thanks to its experience in power electronics for more than 20 years, ACTIA develops solutions for energy conversion. ACTIA off-the-shelf power conversion is well appreciated by customers, due to the outstanding quality level.

PRODUCT IN DETAIL

DC/DC CONCERTER


ACTIA‘s 20A DC/DC voltage converter is designed for commercial vehicles to provide power supply to several equipment. 24 VDC vehicle voltage input is converted to stable 12 VDC output. The 24V 12V DC/DC converter has high efficiency, low quiescent current & is small and lightweight.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Voltage conversion from +24V to +12V.
  • 20A nominal load.
  • Power supply to 12V equipment such as : cigarette lighter outlet, radio, cab lighting, refrigerator, water boiler, TV.

EQUALIZER


MUCH MORE THAN STANDARD DC/DC CONVERTER

The Battery Equalizer is an intelligent power conversion unit for 24 V systems, based on two 12 V batteries connected in series. The Battery Equalizer is able to supply up to 60 A of current with a regulated 12 V output. During nominal operation, the charge of the two batteries in the system will be «equalized» to prevent abnormal wear on the battery system.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

  • Voltage conversion from +24V to +12V.
  • Up to 60 A for a period of time.
  • 20A nominal load.
  • Balance / Recharge of the vehicle battery when current consumption is below 20A.
  • Diagnostic information available through CAN interface.
  • Compact and resistant housing (IP6K9K) for chassis mounting.
