8W DC/DC converter is compact for e-mobility

There are three input options for Recom’s REC8E range of low cost, 8W DC/DC converters. The converters are available with inputs of 9.0 to 18V (12V systems), 18 to 36V (24V systems) and 20 to 60V (48V systems). This last input range matches the LV 148 requirements for 48V Li-ion voltages in vehicles. The converters are supplied in a 1.0 x 1.0-inch (25 x 25mm) package. The industry-standard low profile, non-metallic package is suitable for use in high density PCBs.      

The REC8E range of low cost, high efficiency, 8W DC/DC converters are designed for battery-powered applications, such as 48V Li-ion inputs in e-mobility vehicles, as well as in general industry and test and measurement applications.

They are protected from damaging deep discharge, with under-voltage lockout, which automatically switches off the converter if the battery voltage falls below safe levels.

Fully protected output voltages are available of 5.0, 9.0, 12, 15, 24, +/-12 and +/-15V.  All outputs are tightly regulated and can drive high capacitive loads over a wide temperature range of -40 to +75 degrees C without derating. An on/off control pin is fitted as standard to reduce the supply current to less than 0.7mA in shutdown mode.

EMI is very low, with only simple, low-cost external components required for compliance with EN 55032 class A or B emission limits, recommends Recom. Isolation rating is 1.6kV/1 minute, and the devices are certified to UL/IEC/EN 62368-1.

The REC8E series joins Recom’s Econoline series. Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorised distributors or directly from Recom.

Recom Power manufactures a full range of standard and customised DC/DC and AC/DC converters in every power class from sub-1W to tens of kW, as well as a range of switching regulators and LED drivers in a wide selection of formats.

The company headquarters are located in Gmunden, Austria, and include a logistics research and development centre and laboratory wing. The company is supported by a worldwide distribution network.
