DC/DC - Going the Direct Route for Solar

The new DC/DC converter from Phoenix Contact's Uno Power product range, supplies the control cabinet directly from the photovoltaic system. This saves installation costs and increases the efficiency of the system.

The DC/DC converter enables direct connection to string voltages. As such, the string combiner box is supplied from the photovoltaic system and there are no additional installation costs. With its wide-range input, the device converts input voltages between 300 V and 1000 V into an electrically isolated 24 V output voltage.

Thanks to its robust design, it works reliably at temperatures between -25°C and +70°C. The compact housing and high efficiency of more than 90 percent, means it can also be used in small control boxes. The LED function monitoring simplifies start-up and the UL-1741 certification facilitates the approval of the overall system.

Phoenix Contact manufactures electric connection and industrial automation technology. It was founded over 80 years ago and has 14000 employees, 50 own sales companies and 30 sales partners worldwide.

Our work is dedicated to the creation of progress with inspiring, innovative solutions and to a trusting partnership towards our customers and partners with common benefits.
