RECOM’s New Power Supply Features Baseplate CoolingFebruary 13, 2020 by RECOM
RECOM’s new 550W AC/DC power supplies support fanless operation with an innovative thermal baseplate design for medical, industrial, ITE and household applications.
The new ultra-compact RACM550-G series from Recom is designed to support up to 300 watts of continuous output power without cooling fans. This highly efficient 3”x 5” baseplate-cooled design measures just 38mm total height and enables direct heat dissipation through metal housings in the end application.

Up to 550 watts of peak power with nominal outputs 24V, 36V, 48V, 56V are available to drive dynamic loads for several seconds, with forced-air depending on the model, line input and ambient temperature even continuously. A 12V smart fan output is available as standard as well as a 5V/1A VSB output for applications with housekeeping circuits and on/off control. In standby mode, the units consume less than 500mW of power and they deliver up to 5V/400mW output for display functions according to Ecodesign lot 6 needs.
The wide input range of 80 to 264 VAC, up to 5000m operating altitude, operating ambient temperatures of -40 to +70°C, and international safety agency certifications make the series worldwide-compliant for medical 2MOPP (250VAC), household, industrial and ITE applications. The RACM550 series is available as an open-frame design or in an enclosed metal housing.
