Samlex VTC305-12-24 12VDC to 24VDC Voltage Converter, 13.5 Amps
Samlex VTC305-12-24 12V to 24V DC 13.5 Amp Voltage Converter
Step up a 12 VDC battery to between 13.5 and 17.0 or 24.0 and 27.5 VDC in 0.5 VDC increments (via 3 position DIP switch), or stabilize a 12 or 24 VDC power system. Safety features include reverse input protection, low input voltage alarm, low output voltage alarm, over temperature shutdown and alarm, and output over voltage crowbar. If the input voltage exceeds the regulated output voltage, the unit simply passes the voltage through with full LC filtering and a single schottky diode drop (0.5 VDC or less). Optional features include a dry contact alarm relay output, and remote panel monitoring with On/Off control.
Applications include temporarily brightening 12 volt headlights or work lights, increasing voltage into an automotive or marine ignition system for hotter spark and/or prevention of failures due to voltage drop during engine start, stabilizing 12 and 24 VDC power systems in marine, automotive or aeronautical environments and more.
The actual output current capability depends upon the input/output voltage ratio. To obtain the actual output current capability at any given input voltage, use the following formula:
Output Amps = (Input Volts / Output Volts) x 27
