Step-up voltage regulator – Standard passive dissipation – Input 54V to 69V – Output 72V / 18A / 1296W – SUR-5469-7218-3

Powered by three 450W photovoltaic panels “18V / 23V” connected in series, this step-up regulator replaces (with very high efficiency) conventional dc/dc converters when input/output insulation is not required.


Input voltage: 54 to 69 V
Output voltage: 72 V
Output current: 18 A
Output power: 1296 W
Efficiency: > 97%
Maximum leakage: 40 W


  • Transforms 3 photovoltaic panels into a powerful stabilized generator 72V / 1296W
  • High efficiency allowing reduced dimensions and low weights
  • Wire loss reduction, in case of remote mounting (connections ≤ 72mm2)
  • Neutralized vibrations + tropicalisation + sealing: IP63 / IP67 casting
  • Scalable cooling options available, to push back the thermal limits

  • Limited overloads: as long as decreasing Vout remains ≥ Vin + 0.5V
  • Abnormal overloads: please add a fuse or current-limiter on the output or input
  • Under-voltage or sufficient input over-voltage: the regulator no longer elevates the input voltage
  • Filters: input and output; shields: two parallel metallic plates
  • Thermal protection: lowering of Vout to # Vin – 0,5V (automatic reset)
  • Vibrations, tropicalisation, sealing: iP63 to iP65 casting
  • Stainless steel for the clamping braces
  • Ohmic wire loss reduction, with connectors receiving sections up to 72mm2
