The HPC-1 offers a new level of performance in 6V vehicles. Until now, owners of vehicles with original 6/12V positive ground and 6V negative ground systems were extremely limited with their converted radios due to the anemic output of available power converters. With the HPC-1, owners can now fully drive two 4 ohm speakers, or four speakers at reduced power.
The HPC-1’s highly efficient synchronous design ensures low power dissipation while providing maximum output to the radio. The HPC-1 can provide up to 56W output power from a 6V positive ground system and 90W output power from a 6V negative ground system with the engine at fast idle.
Fully filtered on all connections, and through the use of proprietary EMI reduction circuitry, the HPC-1 provides an extremely clean output without the need for large, power robbing external filters.
The HPC-1 features full reverse battery and transient protection. A low voltage lockout circuit ensures the converter always operates properly. No more blown fuses or damaged converters due to a weak battery! Due to the clever design of the HPC-1, only a single board is required for all installations reducing inventory. Its extremely small size and low EMI output allow it to be mounted directly inside the converted radio simplifying installation and operation.
As with all Aurora Design products, the HPC-1 is designed to SAE specifications and built in the USA at an ISO9001:2000 facility.
