RECOM launched DC/DC Converters in Miniature Case Features 4:1 Input

A new family of surface-mount, cost-effective, regulated DC/DC Converters has been launched by RECOM designated R5M, R3M, R2M, and R1M, rated at 5W, 3W, 2W, and 1W respectively. The parts feature a common case size of 13.2mm x 9.1mm footprint, 10.2mm high, with the R2M additionally available in a through-hole DIP8 package. All parts operate over a 4:1 input range of 9-36VDC or optionally 18-75VDC, while the R3M, R2M, and R1M range additionally include 4.5-18V input. Single, fully regulated outputs available are 3.3V, 5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, and 24V while dual outputs featured are +/-5V, +/-12V, and +/-15V. 

The isolation rating for all parts is 1.6kV/1min, no minimum load is needed, and continuous short circuit protection is included along with an on/off control pin. Advanced circuit and thermal design results in high efficiency, peaking at 84%, allowing an operation to at least 100°C ambient with derating and at full load up to 90°C for the 1W part and 50°C for the 5W part. The minimum temperature is -40°C. EN 55032 EMC class A and B limits can be met with just a few external components and reliability is high, for example 8.5MHrs for the 1W part according to MIL-HDBK-217F, GB, 25°C. For peace of mind, all parts are covered by the RECOM three-year warranty and are available in tube packaging.

Matthew Dauterive, DC/DC Product Manager of RECOM comments, “Our new wide input DC/DCs in a common format allow easy upgrade to higher power as required and offer the convenience of surface mount terminations.”

Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or directly from RECOM.
