Medical-grade 6 W ac-dc converter occupies tiny 1” x 1” footprint
The space-saving RACM06E-K/277 from RECOM operates from a universal mains power input, and offers a choice of output-voltage options. This converter is certified for use in medical, industrial and home applications.
RECOM has launched the RACM06E-K/277, a family of board-mount, through-hole 6 W ac-dc converters which are supplied in a low-profile encapsulated package with a footprint of just 1” x 1”. Featuring reinforced isolation and rated for two means of patient protection (2MOPP), these converter modules are suitable for use in patient-connected medical equipment, as well as a wide variety of other applications.
The RACM06E-K/277 converters operate over a broad input-voltage range for use with mains power worldwide: from 100 V to 277 V ac, and from 120 V to 430 V dc. Output-voltage options are 3.3 V, 5 V, 12 V, 15 V, and 24 V.
The converters’ high efficiency, maintained with light loads, enables operation at ambient temperatures ranging from -40°C to 90°C, with a full load rating up to 60°C.
The RACM06E-K/277 holds safety certifications for use in IT/multimedia, medical, industrial, and household applications. It meets the requirements of Class B EMC specifications with a wide margin when supplying a floating load. For medical use, touch current is less than 0.1 mA for body-floating patient-connected applications.
