Ready to save space in medical-device designs, the RECOM REM1 series, now available from Dengrove Electronic Components, is a 1W DC/DC converter family certified to medical IEC/EN/ANSI/AAMI 60601-1 and general IEC 62368-1 equipment safety standards. The 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/1-minute isolation, and 8mm creepage and clearance, within the 19.6mm x 6.0mm x 10.2mm outline.

In addition to meeting high safety standards and helping new OEM products pass approval tests quickly and economically, the REM1 series also delivers flexibility and high performance.

Input-voltage options are 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, or 24V, and the output can be 3.3V, 5V or 12V.

Maximum efficiency of 85% keeps power dissipation low, and enables the converters to operate in ambient temperatures from -40°C to 90°C without derating.

The 1W REM1 series complements the existing RECOM 3W, 6W and 10W REM families of medical DC/DC converters.

The new 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 full line is in stock now, and comes with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
