5W AC/DC converter series is suited OVC III

Developed for fixed installations where higher transient values to over-voltage category (OVC) III and increased environmental stresses occur, the RAC05-K/PD3/H 5W AC/DC converter series from Recom is now available from Rutronik.

Described as offering reliability, even when things get really dirty, the RAC05-K/PD3/H series reduces the need for external interference suppression components, says the company. Target applications are in smart grids, renewable energy applications, smart metering and IoT systems, as well as in monitoring equipment in the food and beverage industry.

The converters are available with 5.0 or 12V DC and on demand with 15V DC single outputs. They have extended clearances to ensure OVC III up to 5000m altitude.

Nominal input ratings are 100 to 277V AC although 480V AC can also be withstood without damage, confirms Rutronik. The series is designed for use in harsh environments of pollution degree 3, where pollution can become conductive with condensation. 

The RAC05-K/PD3-H converters are protected against short circuits and over-voltage in case of internal anomalies. They comply with EMI emission level EN 55032 Class B (floating output), without external components. They have an idle power consumption of less than 0.5W. 

The components are offered in a 2.0 x1.0 x 1.0 inch package and operate up to 70 degrees C in free air and up to 85 degrees C (12V part) with 40 per cent derating. They are also IEC/EN 62368-1 and UL 61010-1 certified.
