Fuel cell converter VP5000-DCDC200HL

  • The VP5000 high-voltage DC/DC fuel cell converter couples two different DC voltages bidirectionally with a high efficiency.
  • Like the VP600 inverters, the VP5000 DC/DC converters have an integrated PLC to perform additional functions.
  • In addition, all models of the VP5000 are freely programmable.
  • For ease of use, functionally required inductors are integrated in the VP5000. And VP5000-DCDC200HL additionally has integrated precharging resistor and relay.
  • Complete solutions for power components such as traction inverter, DC/DC converters, battery connections, onboard power supplies, generators or charging devices – including ARADEX technology and control modules as well as comprehensive application modules for easy system integration.

Key features

  • Excellent efficiency up to 98.5 %, even in low partial load
  • Wide voltage range and high possible step-up-ratio
  • Minimum voltage ripple due to the DC/DC converter for an optimal operation for example of fuel cells
  • Integrated PLC-functionality in real-time to work together with fuel cell as smart subsystem.
  • Integrated oscilloscope function
  • Perfect matching tools for parametrization, commissioning, and service available: ANALYSER, VEConfig, VECTOSTUDIO
  • CAN communication
