Complete reference designs for railway applications

Recom has introduced evaluation platforms for its DC/DC railway converters up to 240W, available in either high voltage (-1) or high current (-2) layouts, and they include a RIA12 surge stopper.

The R-REF04-RIA12-1 and R-REF04-RIA12-2 are complete reference designs for railway applications. The R-REF04-RIA12-1 board is populated with components rated for higher DC input voltages up to 110VDC nominal input. The R-REF04-RIA12-2 board is populated with components rated for higher DC input currents up to 10A.

Both boards are input-side fused and can be used with DC/DC converters with single output currents up to 45A.

The reference designs include a RIA12-conform surge stopper capable of blocking surge voltages up to 385VDC.

The universal pinout accommodates DC/DC converters with 2in x 1in quarter brick or half brick standard case dimensions, including the entire Recom portfolio of railway DC/DC converters up to 240W.

The reference designs, samples of DC/DC converters and OEM pricing are available from all authorised distributors or directly from Recom.

Recom Power supplies a full range of DC/DC and AC/DC converters in every power class up to 960W alongside switching regulators and LED drivers in a wide selection of designs.

Innovations such as the company’s R-78 switching regulators have become industry standard.
