Automotive Power Supplies

Converters and Power Supplies for the Communications, Automotive and Marine Industries

Whether you’re installing radio communications, data tracking, visual displays or navigation equipment. On a lorry, a bus, a fire engine or even a luxury yacht. For business, for leisure, and often for emergency services, you know that even the best product or the newest technology is only as good as the power supply supplying it.

IC Series AC to DC - Intelligent Battery Chargers
The IC Series Intelligent Battery Chargers offer an ideal way of charging any type of lead acid battery safely and reliably. The rugged, fully protected unit (IP65) can be used in a variety of applications including on trucks, off road vehicles, boats, caravans and in depots and workshops.

24Vdc – 12Vdc Voltage Converters
These products offer a convenient way to operate mass produced 12Vdc equipment such as cell phones, in car entertainment, professional communication and telematics equipment, refrigerators, televisions etc. from the 24Vdc mobile electrical systems found on diesel engined vehicles and vessels.

PV-A Range DUAL OUTPUT Converters with switched output - 24Vdc to12Vdc
Some automotive equipment, such as In Car Entertainment (ICE) usually has two links to the vehicle’s electrical system, one for security and one for switching the equipment on and off. The security circuit senses when the equipment has been removed from the vehicle by having a permanent connection to the vehicle battery. The on/off function is controlled from the ignition switch so that when the ignition key is removed, the ICE equipment is turned off, preventing the battery from becoming discharged.

DD and DDi Series Voltage Converters
12V-12V, 24V-24V, 12V-24V and 48V-12V Converters for a wide range of applications
If you need to fit 24V equipment onto a 12V vehicle, then an up converter from the DD Series offers a fast and easy way to configure your system. Or, if you need to stabilise your voltage or isolate your supply, then the DDi Series of 12V-12V and 24V-24V Isolators will suffice. There are also 48V-12V units available for telecoms and forklift truck applications.

AD Series 115/230Vac Mains Power Supplies
Mains Power Supplies in 12V, 24V and 48V Configurations
The AD Series units may be used to supply mobile radios and other appliances from AC mains used in offices, portable site cabins, communication cabins, telephone exchanges, remote antennae sites, ships, oil rigs etc. The units will accept either European 230Vac or US 115Vac inputs and are available as standard in 12V, 24V and 48V dc output configurations. Input is via a standard IEC-320 C13/14 power cord with UK, European or US mains plugs – please state your requirement.

AD Series “The Wedge” Desktop Power Supplies
The Desktop Power Supplies, popularly called the “Wedge” due to its distinctive ergonomically friendly shape, offer a convenient way to convert 12Vdc mobile radio transceivers for use as desktop base stations. They will operate from AC supplies, either 115V or 230V without manual adjustment. The continuous rating is 108W (9A), sufficient for most radio transceivers on the market.

DC-DC Converters Bespoke and Variant Options
From 5V to 110V DC input with a range of outputs to suit your needs.
From our comprehensive range of DC-DC Converters, we can design bespoke solutions to your power needs. Input voltages from 5V-110Vdc are available with output voltages set to suit your needs. Products can also be upgraded, for example, to higher IP ratings or for high temperature performance. With specialist engineering skills in Switchmode DC-DC power conversion, we can undertake complete bespoke design projects to suit
    your requirements.

PowerVerter & DD Series IP65 Ruggedised Converters
These products offer the same great electrical characteristics as our PowerVerter and DD Series, but are provided in ‘Ruggedised’ casings for use in harsh environments. Using the well known Ingress Protection System, the product range has been tested and subjected to demanding environmental conditions and awarded a rating of IP655.
