Transient Protection Front-Ends
DC/DC front ends: Transient Protection Modules.
Gaia Converter's transient protection modules are designed to protect electronic systems against high (or low) voltage transients that can occur on an input bus line.
This module family presents 4 possible modes of operations:
Normal operation: When input voltage is within the nominal input voltage range(s) of the following DC/DC converters. The module then operates in a steady transparency state.
Transient operation: The modules clamp input transients for compliance with international input bus standards such as Mil-STD-704, AECMA EN2282, GAM-EG13/AIR2021, DO-160 and MIL-STD-1275 or EN50155, RIA12, IEC571.
Low line operation (brownout / cranking): Only available on the PGDS models, Low line operation occurs when the input bus voltage drops down below the nominal input voltage range(s) of the following DC/DC converters, then the PGDS operates in «boost» mode to provide an output voltage compatible with the DC/DC converters. The PGDS series can sustain low line operation down to 6V.
Power fail operation: The module shuts down its output when input under-voltage, over temperature and/or output over-current conditions are met.
