Low-cost AC/DC converters suit Smart Home applications

Intelligently networked smart homes and smart offices require mesh control systems with many low power nodes, actuators and sensors that are “always on”. To meet these emerging demands, RECOM takes a big leap with complementing its low-power RAC-series with new low-cost converters with EN60335 household certification. These and upcoming RAC-series converters represent a quality-cost proposition, difficult for competition to match.

The RAC01-G (1W) and RAC02-G (2W) series were specially designed to continuously and efficiently power smart building infrastructures. They accept a broad nominal input voltage range from 100VAC to 240VAC for worldwide use. Standard 5 or 12VDC outputs are suitable to power relays, gateways and building automation nodes.

A typical no-load power consumption of only 180mW makes them particularly energy-saving solutions. They operate over a wide temperature range from -25°C to +80°C, are over-current and short-circuit protected – and fit into a tiny 33.7x22.2x19.0mm package.

All modules are certified to EN60950 and EN62368 and come with a three-year warranty. EN55022 Class A (RAC-GA) and Class B (RAC-GB) certifications are reached without additional components.

The RACxx-GA series is also certified to the EN60335 household norm. These newly developed converters are only a few of many yet to follow in this product family. Samples are available from all authorised distributors.
