There’s a really useful variant of the LM2596 voltage regulator called the LM2596HV which can handle 60 volts on its input. But be careful – some that I bought recently turned out to be fake. At about 50v, the regulator became unstable and died which could very easily destroy whatever you have connected to the output.

    Yes I experienced same when I bought 10 regulators from ebay. Most of regulaters failed between 50V and 60V . Dangerous thing is that input voltage appears at output
