AC/DC converters are compact for IoT or industrial devices

Designed for Internet of Things (IoT) or industrial devices, the AC/DC converters are compact power supplies, housed in a 25.4 x 25.4mm, fully encapsulated lightweight plastic case.

Integrated features are short-circuit and over-voltage protection. The modules can fit in tight spaces and also meet EN55032 class-B specifications without requiring external filtering components.

The modules are built to withstand harsh industrial or outdoor environments, says the company, and can operate from -25 to 50°C at full load, or 70°C with derating.

There is low no-load consumption of 75mW, and high light-load efficiency, says the company, making the modules suitable for powering devices like wireless sensors or communication modules that are always on, with short periods of peak activity.

They are available with a single output voltage of 3.3, 5.0, 12, 15 or 24V. They can also be used to operate relays, data gateways, or building-automation nodes. Hold-up time is 60ms at 230V AC input, to maintain a stable output even if the AC-line quality varies.

The AC/DC converters are certified to UL/IEC/EN60950-1 and UL/IEC/EN62368-1 with CB reports, they are CE marked, and covered by a three-year manufacturer’s warranty.
