I have limited general electronics background, and I’m wondering if it is realistic to use a D24V50F5 converter in the following situation:
- 7.4 VDC input (2S Li-ion)
- 3 A output
- poor ventilation (the converter will be enclosed in a 40-mm-diameter PVC tube)
I realize the precise temperature will depend on many factors, but from the documentation it looks like I will be around 95% efficiency, so that less than 1 W would be dissipated. Am I right to expect that I’d be well within specs, thermally speaking?
