Utilizing the latest in technology development, Murata’s DC-DC converters are able to cover a wide range of battery input voltages from 9V to 160V DC in a single module (with input voltage ratios up to 10:1). Specific nominal battery input voltage range converters are also available. Products are suitable for both on-board and trackside rail applications, as well as industrial/manufacturing and farming equipment and the automotive industry.

Ultra-wide (10:1) input DC-DC power

By utilizing proprietary technologies and our component selection process, Murata has developed a range of ultra-wide (10:1) input voltage ratio, DC-DC converters, in both component ‘brick’ style format and standalone fully EN50155 compliant and chassis mount solutions.

These converters have been designed to satisfy and exceed the full range of battery voltages as defined by EN50155 (see table) for nominal inputs of 24V, 28V, 36V, 72V, 96V and 110V with one single device while also maintaining high efficiency across the full input voltage range.


Murata is a leading manufacturer of electronic components, modules, and devices. The complete range includes ceramic capacitors, resistors/thermistors, inductors/chokes, timing devices, buzzers, sensors and EMI suppression filters. Whilst the company is known as a global ceramic capacitor manufacturer, it is also a world leader in Bluetooth® & WiFi™ Modules, board-mount DC-DC converters and is a key manufacturer of standard and custom AC-DC power supplies.
