Recom has announced the released of a new range of DC/DC converters for E-mobility applications. With the push for zero-emission transport, electric propulsion is the ideal solution for off-highway vehicles and they invariably require DC/DC converters to generate isolated auxiliary power rails from the traction battery. The compact and cost-effective RMOD500-W range introduced is perfect for the application as the products are IP67-rated, fully sealed against moisture and dust including connectors and can therefore be fitted in any unprotected area of the vehicle.
The RMOD500-W is rated at 500W with an input range covering 32-96V for nominal 48V, 60V, 72V and 80V batteries. Outputs available are: 13.7V, 13V, 12.4V, 11.7V, 24.5V and 23.5V and parallel operation is possible for higher power applications. Certified isolation is provided, at 2.25kVDC and ambient operating temperature range is from -40°C to 90°C.
The RMOD500-W is designed for easy plug-and-play chassis-mounting installation with standard connectors and is sized 198 x 113 x 45mm including connectors. Protection features make the parts rugged in the application and include input reverse polarity and under-voltage, over-temperature, output over-current/short circuit and output over-voltage. The range has been qualified to standards for EMC, radiation, shock/vibration, thermal shock/temperature cycling, salt mist, water/dust ingress and safety.
