Compact open frame 40W AC-DC converter for industrial and medical designs

New Products |
By Nick Flaherty

Recom in Austria has extended its range of industrial and medically-approved AC-DC converter modules with a 40W range in a 41 x 76mm (1.6 x 3in) footprint for open frame versions and 46 x 8mm (1.8 x 3.2in) for potted versions.

The RACM40-K series typically achieves 90 percent efficiency across a wide line and load range and operates up to 60°C at full load and to 85°C with airflow or derating. Full load is also available across the line range with a 90 to 264VAC input.

Single outputs available are 5V, 12V, 15V, 18V, 24V, 36V and 48V, with full protection against short circuit, overload and over-voltage. No-load consumption is below 0.1W at 240VAC.

The RACM40-K series holds 2MOPP medical certification up to 4000m altitude and is suitable for B and BF applications. Additional certifications are IEC/EN 62368-1 for audio-visual/IT, IEC 61558-1 for industrial, IEC/EN 61010 for test and measurement and IEC/EN 60335 for household appliances. In-built EMC filtering achieves ‘Class B’ compliance with a good margin and meets the requirements of medical EMC standard IEC/EN 60601-1-2 4th edition.

Various mounting options are available: the open frame part can be mounted on stand-offs with Molex connectors for input and output or the /PCB option incorporates pins for direct PCB mounting. For backwards-compatibility, a 2” x 3” footprint version is available on request. The potted version with additional mechanical fixings for stability has inverted pinning compared with the /OF/PCB version.

“These tiny power supplies are ideal for cost- and space-sensitive applications from industrial, consumer, IT and all the way to patient-connect medical. The high efficiency and standby losses also make them ideal for IoT applications,” said Michael Schrutka, AD-DC Product Manager at Recom.

Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or direly from Recom.
