A new fully medically-certified DC/DC converter has been developed by RECOM, which the company claims to be the first in its class to provide 2MOPP with 250VAC working voltage in a SIP7 package. This compact design offers engineers more freedom to develop their PCB layout, knowing that they will comply with the stringent regulations for medical certifications. It is certainly a challenge to design high performance, space-saving medical devices, while still complying with the latest medical safety and EMC regulations.
The use of pre-certified modules reduces the risk of EMC/safety certification failures and saves time for expensive re-designs. RECOM’s new REM1 series complements the existing REM 3, 6 and 10W medical DC/DC converters by offering a 1W solution in an astonishingly compact SIP7 package. This state-of-the-art converter features reinforced isolation of 5.2kVAC/1 minute and is certified 2MOPP with 250VAC working voltage.
Available with 3.3, 5, 12, 15 or 24V inputs and 3.3, 5 or 12V outputs, the REM1 is a versatile solution with up to 85% efficiency and operates in an ambient temperature range from -40 up to 90°C. This converter meets Class B EMC by using a simple external LC filter and is IEC60601-1-2 (4th Ed.) medically EMC certified. It is also fully certified to IEC/EN/ANSI/AAMI 60601, third edition safety standards, with CB report and comes with a 5 year warranty. Samples are available from all authorised distributors.
