KEEP it COOL – The additional Heat Sinks for DC/DC-Converters
High-performance DC/DC converters with a metal case can exceed the recommended safe operating temperature at elevated ambient temperatures. Particularly on circuit boards with a tight construction and less air exchange, the converter can quickly move into a problematic temperature range. suitable cooling is then required !
In order to keep the DC/DC converter in the suitable working range, a additional heat sink can give the component a considerable advantage, at the same time it increase the efficiency and extend the safety working temperature of the converter by at least 20%.
Additional heat sinks are available for all 2×2″, 2×1″ and 1×1″ dimension DC/DC converters with metal cases.
