TC.DSS Series

Programmable bidirectional DC / DC converter.

Our answer to demanding DC / DC conversion requirements !

Series Overview

TC.DSS Series


  • TopCon DC/ DC Source Sink technology enables full bidirectional operation
  • Compact design with integrated EMI - and Sine filters
  • Constant voltage (0 – 100 %), constant current (0 – 100 %) and constant power operation (5 – 100%)
    with automatic and fast crossover and mode indication. Internal resistance simulation.
  • Graduated product line: 65 VDC, 130 VDC, 400 VDC, 500 VDC, 600 VDC, higher voltages with series
    connection up to 1500 VDC.
  • Power categories of 20 kW and 32 kW are available for each nominal output voltage.
  • Optional extras and accessories complete the product line of power supply units.
  • Modular concept for easy power increase: Parallel, series, matrix or multiload master-slave-operation.
  • High efficiency at a low cost, resulting from the application of innovative IGBT and transformer technology. Primary switched. Galvanicly isolated.
    Full digital control and regulation.
  • A user-friendly PC program, the operating and service software TopControl, enables the user to communicate with the power supply.
  • TopControl installation file, LabVIEW® and C/C++ C#/.NET API (DLL file) are included in the scope of delivery.
  • CE conformity
  • Swiss made: Developed, manufactured and tested in Switzerland by Regatron AG.
