RECOM has developed a low cost 5W AC/DC converter in a tiny 1″ x 1″ package, offering an impressive power density of 7.7 Watt/inch³. This power supply is ideal for IoT systems including sensors, actuators and data nodes, which will need to be working 24/7 and therefore requiring an efficient, compact, reliable and economic AC/DC supplies.
Low cost 5 W AC/DC converter in the market’s tiniest 1″ x 1″ package offering an impressive power density of 7.7 watts/inch³.
The new RAC05-K series AC/DC converters claim to offer cost savings of up to 50% compared to similar products.
In addition, their low no-load power consumption of only 75mW and excellent light load efficiency make them ideal for “always-on” IoT systems.
Standard output voltages are 3.3, 5, 12, 15 and 24VDC with sufficient power to operate relays, data gateways and building automation nodes. A universal mains input voltage range from 85VAC to 264VAC makes them suitable for worldwide use.
The modules feature a 60ms hold-up time at 230VAC input, which means that missing mains cycles do not affect the output.
Fabricated into a lightweight fully encapsulated plastic casing taking up only a square inch on the PCB, these converters can be designed into space constrained applications.
The products operate over a temperature range from -25°C to +50°C at full load (up to +70°C with derating) and are output over-voltage and short-circuit protected. An EMC Class B filter is built in without the need of any additional components, further saving space and cost, according to the firm.
The RAC05-K series are fully certified to UL/IEC/EN60950-1 and UL/IEC/EN62368-1 with CB reports. They are CE-marked and come with a three-year warranty. Samples are available from all authorized distributors.
