Rutronik has upgraded its portfolio with the new R0.25S series from RECOM in open frame SMD design with improved efficiency and extended ambient temperature. The compact 0.25W single output converters can be used in many industrial low power applications and are also approved for medical applications.
The R0.25S converters offer quarter watt output power from input voltages of 3.3, 5, 12, 15 or 24VDC. The standard output voltage options are 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15 or 24VDC. The conversion efficiency is up to 70%, which enables RECOM to guarantee an extended ambient temperature range of -40°C to +100°C without derating. This series offer 1kVDC or 3kVDC isolation and optional continuous short circuit protection. They are UL60950-1, EN60950-1 and EN60601-1 certified; RoHS 6/6 conform and come with RECOM’s standard 3 year warranty.
The converters are designed for a long, trouble-free working life with an MTBF of >1.3 million hours. The R0.25S DC/DC-converters have a very compact low profile case with dimensions of only 12.75mm x 10.7mm x 6.7mm. They are available pre-packed as “tape and reel” for use with automatic insertion machines. The enclosed open frame design means that they are suitable for vapour phase soldering in addition to standard reflow ovens.
