15W Isolated DC-DC Converters in 1” by 1” Case

January 14, 2019 by Scott McMahan

RECOM recently released the REC15E-Z series of 15W isolated dc-dc converters. These dc-dc converters boast wide input ranges at low cost in the company's popular 1" by 1" case size. This size is said to save a significant amount of PCB space, while the wide input ranges are said to enhance its flexibility by accepting several standard bus voltages.

The REC15E-Z DC/DC converters are fully-specified devices with 15W, no minimum load, 1600VDC isolation, high efficiency up to 90%, and low ripple/noise. RECOM designed the REC15E-Z series for cost-sensitive applications with limited board space. The wide, 4:1 input ranges accept 9V to 36V or 18V to 75V ranges to cover multiple supply options including lead-acid or lithium batteries or 12V, 24V, 36V, or 48V industrial bus voltages. The Iout from the converters ranges from 500mA to 4000mA, and the Vout options include 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, and 24V.

The converter's inputs are protected against transients of up to 100V and offer UVLO to protect batteries from being over-discharged. The single or dual outputs are continuously protected against both overload and short circuit conditions and can drive high-capacitive loads. The devices are fully certified to industrial EMC and safety standards and RECOM backs them with a three-year warranty. Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or directly from RECOM.
