Recom introduces two DC/DC converters in a SiP16 package

Two DC/DC converters from Recom, the RHV2 and RHV3 series of certified, high isolation DC/DC converters have single and dual outputs rated at 2W or 3W in a compact SIP16 package

The RHV2 and RHV3 series feature high isolation ratings of 12.5kV AC/one minute or 20kV DC/one second in a compact SIP16 package, measuring 45 x 15 x 17mm. they have more than 30mm input-to-output pin separation and are certified to IEC/EN 62368 and IEC/EN 61010 for 12.5kV AC reinforced isolation up to 5000m altitude.

The RHV2 provides 2W up to 85 degrees C and the RHV3 delivers up to 3W at 80 degrees C without load derating. Both have nominal 5.0, 12 or 24V inputs and a choice of 5.0, 12, 24 single or  ±5 or ±12V dual outputs. Efficiency is up to 81.5 per cent, isolation capacitance is very low at 4pF (typical) and the parts comply with EN 55032 (class B) EMI limits with a simple external LC input filter.

Reliability is very high with mean time between failure (MTBF) of 14.6M hours for the RHV2 series at 25 degrees C and 13.4M hours for the RHV3 series.

According to Steve Roberts, CTO of Recom, the RHV2 and RHV3 series are “a perfect fit for very high voltage isolation applications such as high vacuum monitoring, x-ray equipment and HVAC dust extraction systems where low cost and reliable performance are key”.

Samples 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 selection of designs. The company introduced the R-78 switching regulators which have become the industry standard.

The company’s headquarters in Gmunden, Austria includes a logistics centre and laboratory wing.
