At the Innovation Centre RUTRONIK AUTOMOTIVE (hall A5, 262), distributor Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH presents solutions for the 48V Power Net: Core Component is the new decentralised DC/DC converter from itk Engineering. A photo voltaic sunroof from Webasto allows energy harvesting during the drive.
The new 2 phase, bidirectional DC/DC converter from itk Engineering is designed specifically for the energy conversion of 48V- and 12V-Power Nets. It is based on small planar inductors and the latest Power MOS Technology. The decentralised point of load converter allows reduced cable diameter and variable implementation. No active cooling is required. Thanks to the extended temperature range (85-105°C), its power range of 400W up to 700W, an outstanding efficiency of > 98 per cent and the extreme flatness of only 12.5mm, the DC/DC converter is ideal for many automotive applications, e.g. electrical sunroofs.
The photo voltaic sunroof for the 48V Power Net from Webasto allows energy harvesting during daylight. The energy generated charges the battery for all high power applications.
