24v – 12v DC Converter
24v – 12v DC Converter is the best tool to use when connecting a brake controller to 24-volt truck electrical systems. A fancy name for this DC converter is a 24v dc step-down voltage transformer converter module.
Your trailer has 4 magnets that draw 3.4amps at 12 volts. The total wattage required to supply maximum braking load is 163.2 watts.
The manufacturer’s details below may not be well understood so here it is in simple terms.
Maximum watts supplied is 240 watts @ 12v therefore, it is well within the 163.2 watts required at full load.
One of the features of this converter is operating at only 67% of it’s maximum operating capacity. This results in less heat being created and transferred to the heat sinks.
Further, the aluminium fins are heat sinks. The prime reason for heat sinks is to dissipate heat efficiently.
