Medical-certified DC/DC converter is compact to save space and energy

The REM1 series of compact SIP7 modules save space, energy, and time at the test house, says the distributor. The 1.0W DC/DC converter family can save space in medical device designs and is certified to medical IEC/EN/ANSI/AAMI 60601-1 and general IEC 62368-1 equipment safety standards. The converter series is also covered by a CB Test Report, which simplifies access to international markets.

Packaged as compact SIP7 modules, the converters provide two means of patient protection (2MOPP), with 250V working voltage, 5.2kV/one minute isolation, and 8.0mm creepage and clearance, within the 19.6 x 6.0 x 10.2mm outline.

In addition to meeting safety standards and helping products pass approval tests quickly and economically, the REM1 series is flexible with input options of 3.3, 5.0, 12, 15, or 24V. Output can be 3.3, 5.0 or 12V. Maximum efficiency of 85% keeps power dissipation low, points out the distributor. The converters operate in ambient temperatures from -40 to 90°C without derating.

The 1.0W REM1 series complements the existing Recom 3.0, 6.0 and 10W REM families of medical DC/DC converters. The REM1 devices comply with IEC 60601-1-2 medical EMC specifications, and meet Class B EMC with a simple L-C filter placed at the output.

The series is in stock now, and carry a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
