The new DC-DC converter series REC15E-Z from RECOM incorporates fully specified 15W devices with wide input voltage ranges. They improve flexibility by allowing several standard bus voltages. Due to their compact footprint (1” x 1”), the converters are ideal for cost-sensitive applications where board space is at a premium. The series is now available from Rutronik UK.
With no minimum load and 1600VDC isolation and output currents up to 4A, the converters present high efficiency of up to 90% and low ripple/noise.
The wide 4:1 input voltage ranges allow 9-36V or 18-75V to cover many supply options including lead-acid or lithium batteries or 12/24/36/48V industrial bus voltages. The inputs are protected against transients of up to 100V. They offer UVLO to protect batteries from being over-discharged. The single or dual outputs are continuously protected against overload and short circuits and can drive high-capacitive loads.
The series incorporates a broad temperature range from -40C to +75C without derating. The converters are entirely certified to industrial EMC and safety standards and come with a three-year warranty.
