Samlex SDC-5 24 Volts to 12 Volts DC Converter, 5 Amps
Samlex SCD-5 24 Volts to 12 Volts DC 5 Amp Voltage Converter
This high efficiency switch-mode step-down DC-DC converter converts an input voltage of 24 VDC nominal (range 20 VDC to 35 VDC) to a highly regulated output voltage of 12 VDC nominal (13.8 VDC) at 5 Amps. The SDC-5 DC-DC converter is non-isolated (no galvanic isolation between input and output) and meant for use in negative ground systems. Features include short-circuit, reverse polarity and over-voltage protection.
External fuses on the input and output sides: The input and output connections should be made through 32 V, 5A fast blow fuses (For example “Bussmann” Type ATC-5 or ATM-5 automotive type fuses). The fuses should be connected in series with the positive input and output cables. The fuse on the 24 V input side should be as close to the battery positive terminal as possible. This will prevent the possibility of overheating / melting of the input side cables in case of short circuit on the input side cabling (A battery can provide very large currents during short circuit condition).
