What are the benefits of using potted material?
Potted material helps to insulate and protect the electronics within the converter from shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures. This helps to ensure reliable operation of the converter, even in harsh environments.
Potted material also helps to improve the thermal performance of the converter by providing a good heat sink for the electronic components. This can help to extend the life of the converter by preventing overheating.

The main difference between a switch mode power supply and a regulated power supply is that the former uses switches to control the flow of energy, while the latter uses linear regulators. This means that switch mode power supplies are more efficient than regulated power supplies, since they don't have to convert all of the incoming energy into heat. However, switch mode power supplies can generate more noise than regulated power supplies, so it's important to choose the right type of power supply for your application.

Renewable energy is defined as energy that is derived from renewable resources that are renewed naturally on a human timescale and may be harvested. It encompasses a variety of energy sources such as solar, wind, tides, waves, and geothermal etc. To cover requirements of renewable energy, the IEA predicts that renewable energy will account for over 30% of global power generation by 2030, with solar PV accounting for 10%. Over 50% (solar PV: 20%) by 2040, and over 80% (solar PV: 60%) by the end of this century.
