Bel Power Solutions Announces Pluggable Connector for Melcher RCM Chassis-Mount DC-DC Converters for Railway Applications

Bel Power Solutions recently announced an extension to the RCM Series, 150W to 1000W chassis-mount DC-DC converters, with an optional pluggable connector version.

The pluggable connectors are an alternative to the standard cage clamp terminals, that lowers the risk of reverse polarity connection and supports the integration of ready-made cable harnesses during installation, as well as for maintenance purposes. The pluggable connectors are from well-known connector manufacturers in the railway industry and provide additional retention facility for shock and vibration-proof operation in various rolling stock applications, such as cab radios, HVAC systems, train control, passenger information systems, toilet systems, illumination, and many others.

RCM Series are fully compliant to international railway standards EN 50155, EN 50121-3-2, EN 45545-2, and North American AREMA requirements. In addition, the RCM Series is safety approved to the latest edition of IEC/EN/UL 60950-1.

Nominal on-board battery voltages from 24V to 110V are covered by two input ranges and converted into a fully regulated and isolated single output voltage of 12 V or 24 V. The converters can operate in a convection cooled environment at temperatures from -40° up to 85°C. All PCBs are conformal coated and protected against humidity and pollution, which occurs during typical lifecycles of +20 years of rolling stock equipment.
