The power modules meet the latest EU ErP Lot 6 ecodesign specifications for standby and off-mode which apply to industrial and consumer products, confirms the specialist distributor. The modules supply short-term overloads of up to 150%, making them a cost-effective solution for powering industry 4.0 and industrial automation, IoT and smart-building devices and household appliances.

They have a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to 90°C with power derating. They operate at up to 5,000m altitude and can be deployed in stressful environments, says the company. The series offers a choice of 3.3V, 5.0V, 12V, 15V and 24V output voltage and the full-load output power is available from -40°C to 75°C.

No external components are needed to configure a fully functioning AC/DC converter with 80 to 305V AC input range and a wide margin to class-B emissions requirements. The compact modules are encapsulated in a 36 x 26.5 x 17.4mm six-pin case, for use in space-constrained applications.

The RAC04-K/277 series meets high safety standards, with reinforced class II isolation rating for floating outputs and certified according to IEC/EN/UL/CSA 62368-1 for IT and AV equipment, EN 60335 for household appliances, and EN 61010 for measurement control and laboratory use.  

The modules are covered by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty and are available now.
