Medical-certified DC/DC converter saves space and energy

Distributor, Dengrove Electronic Components ha added the REM1 series of compact SIP7 modules, with 2MOPP (Means of Patient Protection) from Recom.

The 1.0W DC/DC converter saves space, energy, and time at the test house, says Dengrove. The converter family can save space in medical device designs and is certified to medical IEC/EN/ANSI/AAMI 60601-1 and general IEC 62368-1 equipment safety standards. The converter series is also covered by a CB Test Report, which simplifies access to international markets, notes Dengrove.

Packaged as compact SIP7 modules, the converters provide 2MOPP, with 250V working voltage, 5.2kV/one minute isolation, and 8.0mm creepage and clearance, within the 19.6 x 6.0 x 10.2mm outline.

According to Dengrove the REM1 DC/DC converter family meets safety standards and helps products pass approval tests quickly and economically. The REM1 series has input options of 3.3, 5.0, 12, 15, or 24V. Output can be 3.3, 5.0 or 12V. Maximum efficiency of 85% keeps power dissipation low, points out the distributor. The converters operate in ambient temperatures from -40 to +90°C without derating.

The 1.0W REM1 series complements Recom’s 3.0, 6.0 and 10W REM families of medical DC/DC converters. The REM1 devices comply with IEC 60601-1-2 medical EMC specifications, and meet Class B EMC with a simple L-C filter placed at the output.
