2-Watt DC-DC Converter for Critical Medical Applications

April 15, 2019 by Paul Shepard

RECOM’s recent addition to its medical portfolio is the REM2 series which offers versatile features and complete medical certifications. These modular dc-dc converters provide engineers with more freedom to develop their PCB layout, knowing that they will comply with the stringent regulations for medical certifications.

The board-mount REM2 series complements the REM1 series by offering a 2W medical grade dc-dc converter in a compact SIP8 package with either single or dual outputs. The REM2 series features reinforced 5.2kVdc/1 minute isolation and 2MOPP/250Vac working voltage at 5000m.

These modules reach up to 85% efficiency at an operating temperature range from -40°C up to +80°C without derating and up to +95°C with 50% load. They are compliant to class A/B EMC and 60601-1-2 (4th ed.) medical EMC using a simple external LC filter and are certified to CB, IEC/EN, and ANSI/AAMI 60601-1 (3rd ed.) medical safety standards.

These reliable modules also come with a 5-year warranty. Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or directly from RECOM.
