Medically certified 2W DC/DC converters save space

RECOM REM2 isolated DC/DC converters, which are now available from Dengrove Electronic Components, have been designed to save space in medical applications by delivering up to 2W and 2MOPP/250V AC working voltage in a narrow SIP8 package.

IEC/EN 62368-1 and 60601-1 certifications, along with reinforced 5.2kVDC/1-minute isolation, means that the REM2 series simplifies approval of medical and scientific applications. The series is also covered by a CB report that eases certification of end products in CB Scheme member countries worldwide. The converters are EN 60601-1-2 and EN 55011 compliant with the addition of a simple external LC filter.

In addition to streamlining conformity assessment, these REM2 converters are able to achieve up to 85% efficiency and can operate over a wide temperature range from -40°C to 80°C without derating and 95°C at 50% load.

The REM2 series contains 32 variants comprising 3.3V, 5V, 9V, and 12V single-output and ±3.3V, ±9V, and ±12V dual-output models. Nominal input voltages are 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, or 24V.

The compact SIP8 package has a footprint of 8mm x 23mm and, at just 12.2mm high, is suitable for low-profile or portable equipment designs. These converters are also covered by a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.
