Extension for DC/DC railway converters serve electromobility

DC/DC railway converters from Recom have a wide input range. The RPA100H and RPA200H now include 15 and 48V output versions, making these 10:1 input voltage range converters suitable for a wider range of applications in railway and electromobility.

Due to the wide range of input voltages in railway systems, typically three different versions of the same design are necessary to cover all of the input voltages from 24 up to 110V DC. Recom’s RPA100H-RUW and RPA200H-RUW input voltage railway converters’ 10:1 input voltage range accommodates all standard input voltages of 24, 36, 48, 72, 96 and 110V DC in a single product, including all of the EN50155 transient limits.

The converters are now available with 12, 15, 24 or 48V outputs to power a broader selection of rolling stock and high voltage battery applications. The converters have a consistently high efficiency over the entire 10:1 input voltage range, says Recom, and operate over a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +93.5 degree C (when baseplate cooled).

The converter case is fitted with threaded inserts to allow secure mounting to the PCB or bulkhead for use in high shock and vibration environments.

The DC/DC converters are certified to CE and UL/IEC/EN 60950 and come with a three year warranty. Samples are available from all authorised distributors.

Recom Power supplies a full range of DC/DC and AC/DC converters in every power class up to 480W alongside switching regulators and LED drivers in a selection of designs. Innovations such as the company’s R-78 switching regulators have become industry standard.
