DC Output Characteristics (Floating)

  • Output Power: 150 Watts (maximum continuous power, may require derating for some low voltage outputs)
  • Line Regulation: ±3.0% Typical
  • Load Regulation: ±2.0% Typical (No load to full load; nominal input)
  • Output Ripple/Noise: 1% Typical (pk-pk; nominal input; full load; 20MHz bandwidth)
  • Set Point Accuracy: ± 1.0% of Output Voltage (Nominal input; full load; 25°C)
  • Transient Response: Output voltage returns to within 1% in less than 2.5mS for a 50% load change and the peak transient does not excess 5%.
  • Overshoot: Turn-on and turn-off overshoot should not exceed 5% over nominal voltage.
