The Site Converter Series are high current, high-efficiency rack mount DC to DC converters designed for dual-voltage site applications where a 24 or 48 volt DC input needs to be converted to a 12 or 24 volt DC output to power two-way radios, repeaters, RF amplifiers, trunking systems, or other sensitive electronic equipment. The wide-ranging input is 20 to 60 volts DC, so the ICT Site Converter will support a variety of input voltages. There are four models available to support peak current of 35 or 50 Amps at 24-volt output and 70 or 100 Amps at 12-volt output. Efficiency is 90%, meaning less energy will be lost in the conversion process.
The Site Converter is fully isolated, and can be used in positive or negative ground environments. The wide-ranging input voltage is also ideal for sites where the DC voltage may fluctuate. The Site Converters built-in protection features protect the converter as well as the connected loads from abnormalities.
The output voltage is adjustable using a front-mounted trim pot. A remote alarm contact will signal when DC fails or the converter shuts down. A remote contact terminal allows the converter to be shut down remotely for servicing or to conserve the battery when not in use.
The Site Converter is based on the high-efficiency switch-mode design that converts more available power while reducing waste energy, lowering heat build-up and power draw on the battery. The wide-ranging 20-60 volt DC input means the same Site Converter can be used with both 24 or 48 volt DC inputs to provide clean, efficient 12 or 24 volt DC power output. The output voltage can be adjusted to allow for line drop,
or for loads that have a very specific input voltage requirement. The remote alarm terminals will send a signal in the event of a failure.
Reliability is achieved through a careful design that virtually eliminates internal wiring and connections that can fail. Wide input voltage ranges are less susceptible to voltage spikes and drops. Every unit is extensively tested before it leaves the factory
High-efficiency design means less energy is lost in the conversion process. Typical efficiency for the Site Converter is 90%, extremely high for this category of converters. A contact terminal is provided that allows the converter to be turned off and on by the main circuit, saving energy and avoiding standby drain on the battery
