Recom International Power GmbH has introduced the new series of space-saving 30W DC/DC converter that combines ultra-miniature dimensions with ultrawide input voltage ranges optimized for wireless networks, telecoms/datacoms, industrial control systems, and measurement and semiconductor equipments.

The new RP-30xxxxSF_DF and RP-30-xxxxSFW_DFW are offered in 2 x 1-inch (50.8mm x 25.4mm) packages and offers 91 percent efficiency. High efficiency grades of up to 91 percent are a must for galvanically isolated DC/DC converters and guarantees trouble free operation at ambient temperatures exceeding 60C, without external cooling measures (packing density reaches 2.28W/cm3). Fast and easy to clip on heat sinks (premounted on module) with the corresponding fixtures can also be supplied by Recom to further increase the operating temperature range.

The devices also feature simple external filtering that ensures class B of EMV-standard EN-55022. The outputs are trimmable in the range of 10 percent of nominal output voltage. An ON/OFF remote is available for external ON/OFF switching.

The new RP30-Series are available with 2:1 inputs 9-18V, 18-36V and 36-75V as well as 4:1 input ranges 9-36V, 18-75V. Output voltages are set at 3V, 5V, 12V and 15V. Both series also offer dual outputs with 5V, 12V and 15V with isolation voltage of 1600Vdc.

The RP30-Series casing consists of six-sided nickel coated copper material. Homogenous epoxy-potting qualifies these converters for the most stringent temperature and vibration conditions.
