Railway portfolio expands with DC-DC converters from 8W to 240W
The RPA series provides 20W and 30W in a 1”x1” case and 60W in a 2”x1” case for a power density of 4,5W/cm³ – one of the highest available on the market. For thermal performance, RECOM also offers the 20W and 40W RP20-FR and RP40-FR in a 2”x1” case.
The regulated DC-DC converters with a 4:1 wide input voltage range are especially designed for railway applications. The series are EN50155 certified and designed for use in harsh environments such as rolling stock. As they are UL/cUL60950 certified, they are also a reliable choice for industrial and telecommunication applications.
Besides 3.3V, 5V, 12V and 15V single outputs, dual ±12V and ±15V outputs are available. The control pin logic can be chosen to be positive or negative. With efficiencies of up to 93%, cooling by natural convection is typically all that is needed, but if required, the modules are also available with a pre-mounted heatsink. The modules come with RECOM´s standard 3 year warranty.
