FCA 1500R..AC/AC Frequency Converter


FCA1500R is a compact AC/AC Frequency Converter that uses established design techniques to ensure high reliability. Suitable for a wide range of applications.

FCA1500R features full electronic protection, high efficiency and low output noise. The built-in fan provides sufficient airflow for operation without de-rating up to 50°C ambient temperature.

Extended operating temperature (-40 to +65°C) is available. The converter can be loaded with a fluorescent lamp load up to the full specified output power.
