High power density for IIoT applications

23 January 2020

RS Components has announced availability of a new series of encapsulated switch-mode power supplies (SMPS), offering the smallest 3W AC/DC power solution available on the market.

Manufactured by Recom, a leading European developer and maker of AC/DC and DC/DC power devices, the highly versatile RAC03-K series of modules has been designed for a wide range of applications and comes with international safety certifications for use in IT equipment and various household devices, as well as being well suited to IoT power designs in home and industrial automation and Industry 4.0 applications.

Offering a very high power density, the series comes in a highly compact 1in2 footprint and delivers 3W single-output power across the –40 to +60°C operating temperature range and 2W up to +80°C. In addition, a key metric is the series’ no-load power consumption of less than 150mW, supporting the EU’s Ecodesign Lot 6 power design study for optimised standby-mode and off-mode power losses.

Offering the universal input voltage range from 85 to 264V AC, the series offers 3.3, 5, 12, 15, 18 and 24V output voltage options with output currents from 900mA down to 125mA. In addition, the series comes with a reinforced class II installation rating and a significantly wide margin for class-B emissions compliance without external components.

The Recom RAC03-K series is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
