RECOM Power - At RECOM Power, when it comes to power conversion, we’ve always been very attentive to our customers’ needs and wishes, and have invested millions over the past decade in product development, growing our quality assurance lab, and expanding the scope of our worldwide distribution activities. This means we’re close by to our customers’ production facilities around the globe, offering the most reliable products available on today’s market ... with top-notch support – and, of course, competitive prices. Over the past 20 years, it has become common practice to purchase DC/DC converters as a finished module. This applies to all segments of the electronics industry, including industrial automation, transportation engineering, telecommunications, data technology, measurement technology, and medical electronics. Even for very large production runs, it’s rarely worthwhile for a company to develop their own DC/DC converter, particularly in view of the stringent international standards that apply nowadays. Our customers have at their disposal today what is probably the largest selection of converters on the market, including DC/DC and AC/DC converters in all output powers up to 60 watts; plus a broad range of switching regulators and LED drivers.

|REDIN45-60 DIN-Rail Power Supply - RECOM Power introduces two new DIN-rail power supply families, the REDIN45 and REDIN60 with 45 W and 60 W power, respectively. The PSUs are available with standard output voltages of 12 VDC and 24 VDC, adjustable by a front cover potentiometer.
|RACM100-150 Compact Medical Power Supplies - RECOM Power announces two new series of AC/DC power supplies designed for medical applications, the RACM100 and RACM150. These compact, high-efficiency power supplies provide 100 W or 150 W maximum power in a semi-enclosed case while meeting two means of patient protection, a must for high-grade medical applications.
|RAC48/OF and RAC60/OF AC/DC Power Supplies - RECOM’s new RAC48/OF and RAC60/OF class II power supplies offers a compact AC/DC open frame design with a universal AC input (90-265 VAC). The DC outputs are fully protected and are trimmable to compensate for voltage drops on the output connections with 3 k VAC/1 minute isolation. The RAC48/OF and RAC60/OF series have an operating temperature range of -20°C to +50°C at 100% load, and up to 70°C at derated load, which normally allows no need for active cooling.
|E-Series DC/DC Converters - Modular DC/DC converters were always considered to be more expensive than discrete solutions. However, with the commissioning of two new SMT lines, RECOM Power is now able to offer select converter series at very attractive prices. Developers already know how unexpected problems such as poor efficiencies or EMC issues coming from in-house developments can lead to delays and re-designs. A planned launch of a product can quickly be delayed by months. Those who design in complete modules not only save on development time but also reduce the risk of time-to-market delays.

DC/DC Book of Knowledge
RECOM's DC/DC Book of Knowledge is a detailed introduction to the various DC/DC converter topologies, feedback loops (analogue and digital), test and measurement, protection, filtering, safety, reliability, constant current drivers and DC/DC applications. The level is necessarily technical, but readable for engineers, designers and students.
REC Series DC/DC Converters
Available in 3 to 15 Watt versions, the REC series compact power supplies are available in a variety of Industry-standard package types (DIP24, SMD, and 2” x 1”) and are EN, UL and/or CB certified. They feature wide input ranges (2:1 and 4:1) and efficiencies up to 87%. These features make them versatile solutions for a variety of applications in the industrial controls, telecommunication, and medical arenas.
R-78 Modular Switching Regulators
Our R-78 series is the original non-isolated, high-efficiency switching regulator, designed as a pin compatible drop in replacement for LM78 linear regulators - no heatsink required! RECOM's R-78 series switching regulator modules offer all the advantages of a switching regulator - high efficiency, wide input voltage range, accurate output voltage regulation - with a low cost for production quantities.

RAC Series Low Power AC/DC
Historically a 10W converter like the RAC10 was considered low power. However, RECOM has heard the requests of their customers and met the market demand for ultra-low power in a highly efficient compact module that can easily be dropped into any design. RECOM’s low power AC/DC converter, along with a simple relay to a standby circuit can drastically reduce the amount of energy a device consumes in standby mode.
R78T Series Switching Regulators
Recently, RECOM introduced new compact, low-profile SMD Switching Regulators, based on the well-established Innoline R78-family. The new R-78T series are pin compatible with many Texas Instrument Powertrend series, such as the PT5100, PT78ST100, and 78SR100 series. There are standard pinning options including EAC (/AC), EAL (AL) or EFC (FC).
DC/DC Converters with High Isolation
DC/DC converters are typically galvanically isolated between the input and outputs. This galvanic isolation have different construction and voltages. The simplest (functional) isolation can withstand 1000VDC for one second. Although 1000VDC sounds impressive, sometimes it is still not sufficient. Medical and IGBT gate drivers demand higher isolation voltage.
