What are DC-DC Converters, and Where Can You Find Them?

Digital technology is going a long way in helping make both industry and domestic settings more efficient and smarter. For example, Blockchain is being adopted widely and offers speed and improved security for the IT systems businesses use. However, it is not only the digital world where significant advances are being made; the electromechanical sector also has a lot to offer, such as DC-DC converters.

What are DC-DC Converters, and Where Can You Find Them? 1

What are DC-DC Converters?

Unknown to many, DC-DC converters are used worldwide in countless electrical appliances. The converters’ primary function is to take an electrical current, a direct current (DC), and convert it so that it is the correct voltage required by the appliance that it is serving. The converters can step up the power or step down the power as needed by the appliance. For example, a fridge supplied with mains electricity may have a DC-DC converter fitted that converts the mains supply to the precise voltage it needs.


DC-DC converter technology has been around for a long time. However, it is constantly being developed and being made more efficient. Companies and households who use the most up-to-date DC-DC converters stand to make significant savings, and the bigger the concern, the more money that can be saved. Not only that, using the most efficient DC-DC converters is “greener” and so better for the environment.

The Impact of Using Efficient DC-DC Converters

The use of DC-DC converters in large industries such as healthcare, for example, offers a good insight into their significance and importance. Used alongside other “smart” technology, such as renewable energy and intelligent power control systems, DC-DC converters represent an opportunity to make huge savings on power costs.

Large industries that invest in the latest technology will find additional added value. Maintenance costs are likely to be less, for instance. Furthermore, appliances fitted with DC-DC converters are safer to work on and pose less of a risk to the personnel who service them.

Planning to have DC-DC converters fitted throughout an organization’s infrastructure is, perhaps, best done in stages so that the cost is spread over time. The savings can be monitored – this allows the organization the opportunity to pinpoint where the biggest savings are made and target subsequent installations a many it is, many that would argue, only a matter of time before legislation is passed that will make such a process a legal requirement, and therefore, those who act now lessen the risk of having to invest more heavily over a shorter period to comply with the standard.
