The RKZ3 series of 3-watt high-isolation DC/DC converters from RECOM (Gmunden, Austria) are suitable for demanding industrial applications to isolate supplies, break ground loops or separate multi-channel inputs that require more power than currently available in standard SIP7 isolated DC/DC converters.
The new RKZ3 DC/DC converter series is a pin-compatible upgrade to existing 2-watt SIP7 converters, providing 50 percent extra power density in the same footprint.
These efficient converters have input voltages of 5, 12 and 24 VDC with standard output voltages of 5 and 12 VDC, and operate over a temperature range from negative 40 to positive 90 degrees Celsisus. The RKZ3 series are pin-compatible with the RK and RKZ series, offering either 3k VDC or 4k VDC (/H version) as standard. They are also available with continuous short-circuit protection (/P version). The RKZ3 series is safety certified to IEC/EN62368-1 and comes with a three-year warranty. Samples are available from all authorized distributors.
