The Recom RP-Series DC/DC Converter features an isolation voltage of 5.2kVdc/1 second models RxxPxx and RxxP2xx offering 5.2kVdc/1 minute which corresponds to about 6.5kVdc/1 second; and the RV-xxxx, offering an isolation voltage of 6kVdc/1 second. Each unit includes a unique, Recom-developed two-chamber transformer which, in departing from traditional methods of winding isolation, enables the Converter to be housed in a highly compact casing. Moreover, the very design of the transformer means that the coupling capacitance between input and output, a parasitic feature of all transformers, is reduced to a mere 4pF, further increasing performance.
Together, the Recom families of Medical Grade DC/DC Converters present what is probably the broadest range of options and performance features available from a single source. These include isolation voltages ranging from 3 kVdc to 6 kVdc; operational efficiencies of 9 7%; manufacture to EN, UL and TS standards; SIP, DIL and SMT case styles; pin and function compatibility with existing linear regulators.
