MHVC250 Dead Start Converter
Available from Schaefer, Inc.
The MHVC250 design features a wide input range of 420VDC to 975VDC which converts voltage from the third rail to 24VDC for supplying points, signal lamps and electronic monitoring. The MHVC250 can also be used as a
self-starting module for trams or trolleys with discharged batteries, avoiding towing.
The converter’s rugged design, and high quality components, yields high reliability in transit applications, even under severe shock and vibration conditions.
Highly efficient, the MHVC250 performs in convection cooled conditions over an ultra- wide temperature range of -40C to +85C. Short circuit protection is inherent in the design.
