The new DC/DC converter series REC15E-Z from RECOM comprises fully specified 15W devices with wide input voltage ranges. They increase flexibility by accepting several standard bus voltages. Due to their compact footprint (1” x 1”), the converters are suitable for cost sensitive applications where board space is at a premium. The REC15E-Z series is available from Rutronik UK. Without minimum load and with 1600VDC isolation and output currents up to 4A, the converters show high efficiency of up to 90% and low ripple/noise.
The wide 4:1 input voltage ranges accept 9-36V or 18-75V to cover multiple supply options such as lead-acid or lithium batteries or 12/24/36/48V industrial bus voltages. The inputs are protected against transients of up to 100V. They feature undervoltage lock out (UVLO) to protect batteries from being over-discharged. The single or dual outputs are continuously protected against short circuits and overload and can drive high-capacitive loads.
The REC15E-Z series covers a wide temperature range from -40 to +75°C without derating. The converters are fully certified to industrial EMC and safety standards and come with a three-year warranty.
