Considering technological advancements for smart applications which have become a part of several electronic products, RECOM has designed an optimized solution for converting VAC to VDC in form of a module having nominal footprint size of 1 x 1 inches.
One of Austriaâs most renowned tech companies, RECOM manufactures power supply solutions rated from 0.25W to 960W with a global network of clients. The company has been in operation for over 45 years and serves a global clientele base.
RECOMâs latest RAC3 is a precise global solution for routine supplies that achieves an 80% energy efficiency from full load to standby mode, ensuring maximum energy savings for all load conditions.
The product is available as two families - the K-Series and the GB-Series. The product is suitable for industrial applications, since the company states that it can work under temperatures from -40Â°C to +85Â°C smoothly. It can also convert various AC voltages ranging from 85VAC, 264VAC, 305 VAC and 528VAC to 3.3VDC to 48VDC. The RAC03-GB has built-in Class B/FCC Part 15 EMC filters which are certified to IEC/EN/UL60950-1, IEC/EN/UL62368 and EN61558 safety standards.
