Avoiding delays related to light rail and streetcar start-up difficulties is one of the most demanded solutions by railway operators, who do not want to encounter surprises when starting vehicles in the morning. The CVS-280 is a 280W DC/DC (400W peak) that allows getting power straight from the catenary or line contact to start the vehicle. It withstands 4.5kV overvoltage peaks and it has been designed to comply with railway standards.
To meet different needs, 4 models of the CVS-280 are available, with different input-output combinations. All of them are designed to handle 600 or 750V and offer a wide variety of input-output combinations. The CVS-280 have a robust and compact design with anodized aluminum housing, the cooling is by natural convection and the operating temperature can reach up to 85ºC.
