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.
