The SDE500 series is conduction cooled via a base plate and is rated for full operation in the specified temperature range. The unit is entirely potted with a thermally conductive MIL-spec silicon rubber compound for resistance against shock, vibration and humidity. The use of components with many years of established reliability and generous headroom results in a high MTBF.
The unit is suitable for transportation, mining, oil rigs, military and other harsh environments. Versions to meet EN50155 railway specifications are also available. Extra options including alarms and a redundancy diode are available on custom versions. Higher power versions are available upon request.
