Seamless compatibility of 12V gear with 24V power sources

Mastervolt, the global leader in power conversion products and integrated systems, is proud to announce the introduction of the most powerful DC-to-DC Converter to the marine, mobile and industrial markets. The DC Master 24/12-50 converts a 24 Volt power supply into 12 Volts, in order to power 12 Volt equipment.  With a maximum rating of 50 Amps continuous and 60 Amps peak, the converter offers more power than any other product in the market. Its compact & lightweight enclosure, rugged construction and easy installation make it an ideal power solution. The DC Master 24/12-50 meets global industrial standards including CE, ABYC and UL.

Anticipating market demand

The product was developed in response to requests from leading U.S. sport fishing boat builders. These vessels are configured for 24 Volt power, but all use 12 Volt electronic reels. These reels have a high amperage requirement which is satisfied by the 50 Amp output of the DC Master. In addition, this product has become an integral part of Mastervolt customised DC systems for the luxury coach market.

“As the boating and RV markets evolve, the demand for higher output power increases with the desire for more comfort on board. Mastervolt is keen to respond to our customer’s needs providing them with solutions that make sense for their applications,” said David Bassie, Product Manager at Mastervolt. “Whether you are using this converter onboard a vessel, in a mobile or an industrial application, our customers appreciate the peace of mind that Mastervolt’s design for harsh environments, extensive quality control and rigorous testing provides.”

Expandable capacity

The DC Master 24/12-50 key specifications are 24V to 12V 50 Amps continuous, 60 Amps peak.  For more capacity, up to 10 units may be paralleled. Weighing in at just 2.5lbs (1.1kgs) and measuring 14”L x 5”W x 4”H, the unit comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
