Electrical apparatus or equipment that converts one level or polarity of DC voltage to another level or polarity.
A device or circuit for changing ac to dc. This is accomplished through a diode rectifier or thryristor rectifier circuit.
Electronic device used to convert from one type of signal to another for transmission. See our full line of signal converters.
An electrical circuit which accepts a DC input and generates a DC output of a different voltage, usually achieved by high frequency switching action employing inductive and capacitive filter elements.
A device that converts alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) used to charge the RV batteries and to operate 12 volt DC devices while plugged into an AC source.
A device for converting electric power from alternating current to direct current or vice versa.
Any device that converts frequency, voltage or current from one value to another
A device used to convert from one transmission media to another (Ex. Fiber/Copper Media Converter). Converters are usually externally powered as they physically "repeat" or regenerate the signal.
A device for changing 120-volt AC into 12-volt DC electrical power.
(Electronic) A device to change DC to AC. e.g., a rotary converter or a solid state converter. An adjustable frequency drive is in part a solid state converter.

a device that repeats and/or converts the signal from different media within the same transmission speed, e
a device which enables a subscriber to receive scrambled signals from premium movie channels and Pay-Per-View channels
an analog circuit
an electronic tuning device that 'changes' all channels broadcasted by the cable company and outputs it into an RF signal on your TV set
a part of mixed-signal IC implementation
a piece of circuit ry which acheives this
a potential source of problems due to possible distortion of the signal or misalignment with the amplifiers
a sum of the bits voltages contribution
A fluid coupling device which multiplies torque between an engine and automatic transmission/transaxle. When a vehicle is stopped, a converter allows enough fluid slippage, so the engine can idle without stalling.
An apparatus which can convert one power form to that of another. In the case of shore power converters this form can include voltage, frequency, or the number of phases.
A repeater that also converts from one media type to another, such as from fiber to copper. Often called a media adapter.
(1) A type of device that produces DC power when energized by another DC source. (2) Can also refer to a part of a switching power supply that converts power and produces final rectification.
Device used to descramble televevision programming delvered to the home by cable, satellite, or microwave.
A device which converts AC power to DC power or vice versa. In the context of WTG s, the converter actually does an AC-DC-AC conversion. A converter is typically constructed using power electronics and is also known as a variable speed drive or VSD.
(1) A device that delivers dc power when energized by a dc source. (2) Sections of a switching power supply that perform the actual power conversion and final rectification.
There are two major types of converters in analogue signal processing: analogue to digital converters (A/D) and digital to analogue converters (D/A). A/D converters convert a continuously varying signal (i.e. temperature, pressure and voltage) into digital zeros and ones that can be processed by microcontrollers. Digital to analogue converters (D/A) translate a signal from a numeric, digital representation used by microprocessors and microcontrollers into an analogue signal.
Device which increases the number of channels that a TV set can receive by converting the large number of signals carried on a cable or satellite system to a single channel tuned by the TV set, e.g., channel 3 or 4.
An electronic device that takes on level of DC power and converts it to another level, up or down (DC/DC). A device which changes electrical energy from one form to another, such as from alternating current to direct current.
An electronic device for direct current (DC) power that steps up voltage and steps down to another DC voltage.
A device used to convert non-VHF television signals into standard VHF channels. Cable systems often install converters where more than 12 channels are relayed on a single cable. Converters also protect signals from the interference of strong local signals.
Typically, an electronic device for changing 120 volts AC to lower voltage DC.
An electronic device for DC power that steps up voltage and steps down current proportionally (or vice-versa). Electrical analogy applied to AC: See transformer. Mechanical analogy: gears or belt drive.
Converts 3-wire tow vehicle electrical systems to 2-wire systems by integrating the stop and turn signal circuits as is common in trailer wiring.
An electrical circuit that transforms a DC input into a desired DC output.
A device that changes the value of a signal or quantity. Examples: DC-DC; a device that delivers dc power when energized from a dc source. Fly-Back; a type of switching power supply circuit. See also Flyback Converter. Forward; A type of switching supply circuit. See also Forward Converter
Wiring converter: 5 wire systems to 4 wire systems. Used to integrate the stop circuit with the right and left circuits, with a diode on each circuit to prevent loopback to the turn signal switch...etc.
The mixer stage in a superheterodyne receiver that produces the i-f signal by heterodyning the r-f carrier with an oscillator signal. Also, a device for changing dc to ac, or ac to dc.
A SMPS that converts a DC input voltage to a different DC output voltage.
A device that converts DC electricity from one voltage to another (up or down).
A device that changes DC to AC, or a device that changes AC to DC.
Used frequently in international travel, converts US electronics for use in other countries with a different voltage; may vary depending on country
A device that converts 120 volt A/C (alternating current) to 12 volt DC (direct current). RV devices mostly run on 12 volt DC power that is supplied by the battery, which allows the RV to function independently. When "shore power" (an electrical supply) is available, the converter changes the voltage from 120 to 12 volt to supply the appliances and to recharge the battery.
An Electric Device that changes alternating current (ac) to direct current (dc).
A unit that converts a dc voltage to another dc voltage.
A device for changing signals from one frequency to another frequency. A device used to transfer signals from a channel of one frequency to another.
A device used to transform one DC voltage to another.
Device that is attached between the television set and the cable system that can increase the number of channels available on the TV set, enabling it to accommodate the multiplicity of channels offered by cable TV. Converter boxes are becoming obsolete as old model televisions requiring a converter are replaced by modern televisions, which incorporate a converter into the television directly. Also called a set-top box.
