Recom launches low-cost regulated SIP8 DC/DC converters for use in transport

Regulated DC/DC converters, the RSE (2.0W) and RSOE (1.0W) series, were developed by Recom for a variety of industrial, transport, test and measurement applications which require on-board 5.0V power supplies. The cost-effective converters operate at extreme temperatures from -40 to +80 degree C at full load.

The fully upgraded DC/DC converters are offered with nominal 2:1 input voltages of 5.0 and 24V and with 5.0V output voltage. Tight output regulation protects against any sudden change in input voltage and keeps interference levels low and output voltage stable. The RSE and RSOE DC/DC converters are pin-compatible with the Recom RSO, RS, RS3 and RS6 series, for an easy upgrade on existing circuit boards, says the company. The converters are packaged in a compact industry standard SIP8 housing measuring 21.8 x 9.2 x 11.1mm. The RSE and RSOE DC/DC converters have an I/O isolation of 2.0kV DC. The converters reach efficiencies up to 80 per cent at full load. At low loads, common converters fail to produce high efficiency rates; however, the RSE and RSOE series converters reach 70 per cent efficiency at 30 per cent load and can even maintain full functionality down to 0 (zero) per cent load, says the company. The converters have over-current and short-circuit protection, with rapid start-up times less than 500micro sec. Industrial Class A EMC levels are met with a pi-filter. All modules are certified to UL62368-1 with a CB report and come with a full three-year warranty.

Samples are now available at Recom authorised distributors.

Recom Power supplies a full range of DC/DC and AC/DC converters in every power class up to 480W, and also supplies switching regulators and LED drivers in a wide selection of designs, including the Recom R-78 switching regulators.

Headquarters in Gmunden, Austria includes a logistics centre and laboratory wing. Recom has a worldwide distribution network.
