150W Eighth-Brick DC/DC has 6:1 Input

RECOM announces the RPA150E eighth-brick wide-input DC/DC converter series rated at 150W.

RECOM has launched an eighth-brick DC/DC converter series with 9-60VDC input and optional 12, 24 or 48V outputs rated at 150W. The RPA150E series has an industry standard pin-out with outputs trimmable over a wide +/-20% range to include 28V for avionic systems and 57V for PoE applications. The 6:1 input range covers nominal 12, 24, and 48V system rails with sufficient margin to include 48V battery charging voltage and 12V battery cranking voltage dips.

Efficiency of the RPA150E series is high, up to 92% typical, allowing operation to +85°C with minimal derating with airflow or baseplate cooling. Isolation is rated at 3kVDC, and standard control and protection feature include remote on/off, under-voltage lockout, over-voltage, over-current, and over-temperature.

Safety certifications for the converter include UL 62368-1, CAN/CSA-C22 No. 62368-1, and the parts are EMC-compliant to EN 55032 and EN 55011 with a recommended external filter network. With suitable external components, the RPA150E series is compliant with EN 50155 and EN 45545-2 railway functional and safety standards along with EN 50121-3-2 railway EMC standard.

Matthew Dauterive, DC/DC Product Manager of RECOM comments: “The wide input range of our RPA150E series means it can provide cost effective power conversion from battery voltages in EVs, rail, and E-mobility designs as well as in a broad range of industrial applications”.
