Recom Adds 12:1 Input Quarter-Brick DC/DC Converters for Railway

13 November 2018

The latest addition to Recom’s railway portfolio are two 40 W and 60 W DC/DC converter series in quarter-brick packages with an ultra-wide input voltage range from 14-160 V DC, making them a universal solution for railway Source: RecomSource: Recomrolling stock applications and high voltage battery systems.

The 12:1 input voltage range of Recom's RP40Q-RUW and RP60Q-RUW series covers all input voltages from nominal 24 V DC up to 110 V DC in a single product (including EN50155 transients). These quarter-brick DC/DC converters are designed for railway rolling stock and high voltage battery applications and offer basic isolation with regulated 5 V, 12 V, 15 V, 24 V or 48 V DC outputs, including sense and trim pins. They have a consistently high efficiency over the entire input voltage range and an operating temperature range from -40° C up to 85° C (68° C for the RP60Q-RUW) at full load without forced air cooling. An optional heat sink allows these converters to provide full load up to 90° C and 77° C respectively.

The case is fitted with threaded inserts for secure mounting in high shock and vibration environments. The converters are CE marked, EN50155 and EN45545-2 certified and come with a three-year warranty. Samples and OEM pricing are available from all authorized distributors or directly from Recom.
