RECOM Power Announces Low Cost Range of 5W and 10W Single Output, Universal AC-DC Power Supplies

(PresseBox) (SPRENDLINGEN, ) Complementing the existing RAC-SA series, the new cost efficient, smaller size 5W and 10W RAC-SB series is available in either encapsulated PCB mount or panel mount (screw terminal) formats. Both converters share the same pin out, leaving an easy upgrade path from 5W to 10W.

With a footprint of only approximately 2" x 1", the units are ideal for low power, low cost applications where board space is extremely limited. With this latest new range of products, RECOM believes to offer the highest power density, lowest cost and most compact high quality 5W and 10W modules on the market.

The modules have universal 90VAC-264VAC inputs and can also be used with 120VDC-370VDC supplies. Output voltages range from 3.3VDC to 24VDC in five output options. The converters are short circuit, overload and over-voltage protected. They offer tightly regulated output voltages (even under no-load conditions) and generate smooth, low ripple and low noise outputs. All models have a peak load capability that can provide 150% of rated output power for a maximum of 30 seconds.

The high power efficiencies of up to 76% mean that no additional heat sinking or forced airflow is required. They operate at full power up to +50°C and can be used at up to +70°C if derated. Standard versions can be used down to -25°C and an -E version is available with an extended low temperature range down to -40°C.

The series has a Class II input, meaning that no earth connection is required. This suits portable equipment designs where a reliable ground is not always available. Input to output isolation is rated at 3kVAC minimum. External filtering components are not required since the power supplies already meet EN55022, level B for conducted and radiated EMC with their inbuilt filters. The converters are UL listed.

RECOM Electronic GmbH & Co. KG

Incorporated in 1975 RECOM Electronic GmbH originally was a supplier for high precision metal- film- resistors and- networks, becoming a pioneer for miniature DC/DC-converters in the mid 1980's. Today RECOM is a leading supplier of converters in the power range from 0.25 Watt to 60 Watt and above.

Our core focus- development & design, production and marketing span three continents - America, Europe and Asia, thereby ensuring close proximity to our customer base worldwide. Our continued quality improvement is significantly enhanced by RECOM being the first converter manufacturer having been awarded the prestigious TS 16949 certification.

Leading international corporations have selected RECOM as their strategic supplier for power supplies. The continued expansion of our international presence makes RECOM an important partner for the global industrial automation industry, aerospace, medical, transport and communication.
