The AC/DC power supply provides the required DC voltage for many electronic devices. If these have a standby function, efficiency plays a decisive role in complying with the guidelines for energy consumption-relevant products. RECOM's E-Series AC/DC power supply modules, available now from Rutronik, easily satisfy these specifications. Thanks to their high efficiency across a wide load range and exceptionally low energy losses at low loads, the components effortlessly comply with common energy-saving guidelines such as the European Ecodesign Directive Lot 6. As well as energy efficiency, other key purchasing parameters include compact size, reliability, and pricing.
AC/DC converters, like sensors, processors, and actuators, are among the most widely used components. To satisfy the high demand, the company is launching the E-series in a compact form and at low prices – ideal for mass production. Economies of scale allow it to attain cost savings of up to 50% compared to similar products with no compromise to quality. The converters supply high efficiency over a wide load range, short-circuit, overload, and overvoltage protection, and UL/IEC/EN60950-1, 62368-1, 60335-1, and 60601- 1* certifications.
Typical applications include energy-efficient products with Energy Star certification, industrial control systems, smart buildings and smart offices, remote and automated systems, test and measurement systems, standby power supplies in commercial applications, and power supplies for panel mounting in enclosures.
