Prodrive Technologies’ DC/DC Converter (48/12V) is part of our larger Automotive and power conversion portfolio. This fully bidirectional 48/12V DC/DC converter offers a scalable and very efficient solution for demanding industrial and off-road applications and mild hybrid automotive systems/vehicles. Rated at up to 3kW continuous power with an efficiency up to 96%, it can be used to supply all power-intensive auxiliary applications and recuperate braking energy at 48V, using the 12V battery. Although it is offered in two full versions, air and liquid cooled, due to its very slim and highly energy efficient design it is ideally suited to be integrated into the battery itself. The wide DC voltage range supports multiple battery voltages.
