RECOM has released its exclusive 5W AC/DC converter, the RAC05-K/480 series, which allows input voltages of up to 480VAC. They are also OVCIII-rated with a 6kV surge protection, and perform reliably at industrial temperature ranges. This series is suited for housekeeping operations in Industry 4.0, IoT and smart process automation applications that need low standby power consumption as well as the capacity to provide peak power.
With increased demand for all-inclusive, modular power supplies for Industry 4.0 applications with access to only three-phase lines, the company developed the series particularly created to handle Industry 4.0 applications which include industrial line voltage up to 528VAC phase-to-phase. The device is compact at 1″ x 2″, low cost, and able to operate over a wide temperature range from -40C up to +80C.
These PCB-mount modules require no external components, are internationally certified for industrial applications and are EMC compliant due to their internal filter. Also, sensor-driven industrial and smart energy applications running directly from three-phase power will profit from this converter, due to its close regulation, low noise, and its OVCIII rating. This also excludes the need for combining a separate low voltage line or an additional transformer into the design.
These features make the series ideal for integration with not only Industry 4.0 solutions but also for renewable energy, smart grid, smart metering, and IoT applications.
