IP65 Ruggedised Alfatronix Converters
PowerVerters and Converters for harsh environments
– Look for the RU series
The RU range has the same features as the standard PV & DD range, but in addtion, they also offer the following benefits:
- Dust, water and impact resistant to IP655
- Breathable vent to prevent unwanted build up of pressure
- Anti-vibration cable gland
- Supplied with 1m of cable as standard
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. All Ruggedised PowerVerters are enclosed in a durable aluminium extrusion. The low mass Surface Mount Technology components are also less prone to damage from vibration and shock, further increasing the reliability of the units.
Utilising the same GORE-TEX® technology that is used in extreme outdoor clothing, the ruggedised range is able to breathe freely, without compromising the water tight and dust tight seal. This free-flow of air ensures that the pressure remains equal inside and outside the unit thus allowing it to operate within a large temperature range and at varying altitudes safely.
All the products fit onto a ‘Click ‘n’ Fit’ mounting clip which is fixed in three points allowing it to be mounted on uneven surfaces. It is easy to fit the clip into awkward places, then simply click the unit into position.
As well as being dust and water tight to IP65 the units are vibration resistant. They have an anti-vibration cable gland fitted into a hexagonal recess to prevent unwanted knocks from loosening it, so they can be fitted into rugged environments care-free.
