Recom adds to DC/DC converter range with R3 series in SIP8 package

The RS3E DC/DC converters, in an industry-standard SIP8 format and pin-out, are rated at 3W with no derating to 70°C. They are designed with 2:1 input ranges of 4.5 to 9.0V, 9 to 18V, 18 to 36V and 36 to 72V.

Fully regulated outputs available are 3.3V, 5.0V, 9.0V, 12V, 15V and 24V and isolation is 3kV (one minute).

The DC/DC converters are certified to IEC/UL/CSA 62368-1 (safety) up to 5000m altitude and meet EN 55032/FCC class B and EN 55035 EMI standards.

The devices have short circuit protection, high mean time between failure (MTBF) of 1.8M hours and a control input to place the converters in a low power shutdown mode.

The low cost, high power density 3W DC/DC converter will find applications in demanding environments such as industrial and e-mobility, where the industry standard SIP8 format will be useful for space constrained applications.

Recom manufactures a full range of standard and customised DC/DC and AC/DC converters in every power class from sub-1W to tens of kW, switching regulators and LED drivers in a selection of formats.
