BLACKSBURG, VA, June 22, 2016 – VPT, Inc. (VPT®), a HEICO company (NYSE:HEI.A) (NYSE:HEI), today released the VHR Series of industrial level DC-DC converters and EMI filters. Available in models ranging from 5 to 100 watts, the VHR Series of DC-DC converters provides customers with VPT’s renowned levels of product reliability for powering non-flight-critical programs in military, avionics, and unmanned systems as well as manufacturing equipment and controls.
“Engineers aren’t looking for a ‘one converter fits all’ solution, so VPT supplies a wide range of high reliability standard products that best match specific application requirements,” said VP of Sales and Marketing, Monty Pyle. “Just as space programs utilize converters designed for rigid MIL specs and radiation exposure, programs on the other end of the spectrum are aligned to solutions, like the VHR Series, that are cost effective and highly reliable without requiring the extensive environmental screening that is necessary for flight-critical programs.”
The VHR Series design leverages VPT’s decades of experience in proven military, aerospace and defense solutions. For budget-driven programs, the series offers a wide input voltage range for nominal 28 volt input, an average 85% efficiency and low input and output ripple for reliable operational success, even in rugged environments.
Designed to operate at full-load over a wide temperature range of -40°C to +100°C, the VHR Series also offers fixed frequency operation, soft-start, magnetic feedback, inhibit and current-limit protection. Additionally, the VHR Series includes companion EMI filters ranging from 1 to 20 amps.
The VHR Series of DC-DC converters and EMI filters are available for immediate sale. Unit prices begin at $65 (USD) for volume quantities. Additional information on the VHR Series can be found by viewing the VHR Series product page and the VHR datasheets.
