Flex Power Modules, a manufacturer of DC/DC converters, launched the BMR492 series of digital eighth-brick intermediate bus converters.

The converters are able to deliver 600-800W of continuous power, in addition to a peak power up to 1100W for periods <1s.

The BMR4920302/861 is the first of three variants within the new family to be introduced. It delivers 12V output and is rated to a maximum 600W output over an input range of between 40-60V. Further, it is fully regulated and includes an input to isolation voltage of 1500Vdc.

In addition to this, it features a peak efficiency of 96.7% at 48 Vin at half load. The output voltage is pre-programmed at 12 V but can be adjusted across a wide range of 8 to 13.2 V via the incorporated PMBus interface.

The converter also has a standard DOSA pinout that includes a 7-pin digital header. An operational lifespan with a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 6.64 million hours is also featured.

The units comply with IEC/EN/UL 62368-1 safety standards and have an operational temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
