DC/DC converters earmarked for medical equipment

A new range of DC/DC converters that target use in medical applications has been introduced by RS Components. The TIM 2 and TIM 3.5 series are manufactured by Traco Power and feature 2W and 3.5W DC/DC converters, respectively.

Importantly for medical applications, the converters provide reinforced isolation of up to 5000V AC (RMS). Also, offering a low leakage current of less than 2-microA, the converters are suited for use in insulating electrical equipment within the BF classification for patient applied parts.

The converters are approved to IEC/EN/ES60601-1 3rd edition for 250V AC 2xMOPP up to an altitude of 5000m, and an ISO14971 risk management file is available. Further approvals include compliance with the latest EMC requirements IEC 60601-1-2 4th edition for medical equipment.

Available in compact DIP-16 or SMD-16 packages, a wide range of series models are available with output voltages of 3.3, 5.0, 9.0, 12, 15, 24, ±12 and ±15V DC. Devices in the series offer input voltage ranges of 4.5-12V, 9.0-18V, 18-36V and 36-75V DC.

Delivering high efficiencies, the converters also offer operation at environmental temperatures from -40 up to 95 degrees C and up to 90 degrees C for the TIM 3.5 series. Both series provide shock, vibration and thermal shock resistance, according to MIL-STD-810F.

The Traco Power TIM 2 and TIM 3.5 series of DC/DC converters are supplied with a five-year product warranty and are shipping now in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
