AC/DC converters meet IoT and smart home power demands

Recom has announced 15 and 20W AC/DC power supplies, designed for low power IoT and household applications. The RAC15-K and RAC20-K series are based on the footprint of the company’s compact RAC10-K modules. The new modules feature high-efficiency over a wide load range and minimal standby power consumption, making them suitable for the always-on applications of the IoT and smart homes.

The RAC15-K and RAC20-K series are PCB-mount AC/DC modules with low energy losses especially in light load conditions. According to the company, based on the latest developments of integrated power, the next level of efficiency has been reached, allowing 20W of power in a modular 2.0 x1.0-inch (50 x 25.4mm) case size.

The RAC15-K and RAC20-K AC/DC converters have a universal mains input range of 85VAC up to 264VAC for worldwide use and come with international safety certifications for industrial, AV and ITE as well as household standards. Both the RAC15-K and RAC20-K are able to operate within a temperature range of -40 to +80 degree C and offer fully protected 5V DC single outputs.

The complete range of single output (5.0 – 48V DC), dual output options (12 and 15V DC) and wired versions will be available in Q3 2018. The modules easily meet EMC class B far below the limits without the need for any external components, says the company. Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorised distributors or directly from Recom.
