Recom packs wide-input 30W DC/DC into 1.0 x 1.0 inch package
A wide-input 30W DC/DC converter 30W DC/DC from Recom is available in a miniature package which measures 1.0 x 1.0 inch (25.4 x 25.4mm) low profile case.
The REC30E-Z series of DC/DC converters is a cost-effective series of DC/DC converters which boasts two wide input ranges, namely 9.0 to 36V and 18 to 75V DC. Efficiency peaks at over 90 per cent and they have 2kV per minute isolation, require no minimum load and have a range of fully regulated single and dual outputs available (3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, 25V, ±12V, and ±15VDC).
The thermal and circuit design means that the parts operate to high ambient temperatures, for example to 80 degreesC with no derating. With derating and/or airflow, higher temperatures are possible up to the case limit of 105 degrees C. High efficiency is also maintained down to light loads for low standby losses. A shutdown control is included as well as a ±10 per cent trim pin for single outputs.
Full protection is provided against over-temperature along with output short circuits, over-current, and over-voltage while the inputs are surge-rated to 50V and 100V for the two ranges. The series holds safety certifications to IEC/EN 62368-1 and complies with EMC standard EN 55032 class A without additional components and to class B with a simple external filter network. Reliability is typically over 500khrs according to MIL-HDBK 217F, GB at 25 degrees C.
The REC30E-Z is equipped with through-hole PCB mounting and features a rugged metal casing for excellent thermal performance and shielding. It is encapsulated for use in Pollution Degree 2 harsh environments.
Parts include a three-year warranty, and samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorised distributors or directly from Recom.
