1 W DC/DC converter offers 6.4 kVDC isolation

December 17, 2015 // By Paul Buckley
RECOM has introduced the RK/H6 and RH/H6 converter series which is designed to offer a reliable choice for a wide range of low-power applications in industrial electronics, measuring technology and sensor systems where high isolation voltage is required.

Both converter series are rated for 1 W and offer up to 6.4 kVDC isolation between the input and output for 1 second. In contrast to the RK/H6 series, the RH/H6 series comes with dual outputs. Both models are available for input voltages of 5 VDC, 12 VDC, 15 VDC and 24 VDC and supply 3.3 VDC, 5 VDC, 12 VDC and 15 VDC (RK series) or ±3.3 VDC, ± 5 VDC, ± 12 VDC and ± 15 VDC (RH series) at the outputs. They have an efficiency of up to 80%, are permanently short-circuit proof and can be operated without a minimum load.

Both converter series come in the compact SIP7 housing (19.6 x 7 x 10.2 mm) and can be operated at full load over a temperature range of -40 °C to + 90 °C. The devices are IEC / UL60950-1 certified and come with a three-year manufacturer warranty.
