The above DC to DC converters are compliant with railway standards EN50155 and EN45545-2, critical for any electronic device that is to be used on board rolling stock, or locomotives.

The stand out features on the MEAN WELL Railway DC to DC converters are the 4:1 wide input range (subject to model selected) and the 4000VDC input/output isolation. All models also have an impressive wide operating temperature range.

Space is usually at a premium on board train and locomotives. MEAN WELL took this into account when designing these railway DC to DC converters. They are remarkably compact, with the RSD-50 and RSD-60 having a 1U low profile. So you should be able to fit them into the tightest of spaces.

MEAN WELL has incorporated a number of protections into the design, including overload, short circuit, and output over voltage and input reverse polarity.

Of course reliability is paramount when it comes to railway applications and you need to select a power supply brand that you know you can trust.

MEAN WELL has been designing and manufacturing power supplies since 1986 and during this time they have established a reputation for manufacturing cost effective, reliable power supplies.

Both of these new DC to DC converters are backed by a 3 year warranty.
