I am looking at a DC to DC converter data sheet that has an input voltage of 0V-100V. The datasheet only mentions a max output current of 4 amps. Is it safe to assume I can place a load of any voltage as long as it is lower than my input voltage, and draws less than 4 amps?

I have attached the data sheet for reference. Converter Data Sheet

Figure 1. From the datasheet.

No you're not. That's in input filter for a DC-DC converter. From the datasheet:

Power-One offers a complete range of input filters to help control EMI in board-level DC-DC converter applications.

The voltage rating will tell you the maximum voltage that the filter can withstand between positive and negative lines.

The current rating is the maximum current that the device can handle through the filter.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you. I didn't realize this. I thought it was a converter based off the description "Isolated DC/DC Converters 0-100Vin 5A 1500VDC Isolation". \$\endgroup\$ – ElectroMotiveHorse Aug 9 '18 at 18:35
