Recom low-cost switching regulator extended to high output voltages

csm_PR_R78_E_V2_1607_0c9f964353RECOM expands its low-cost, highly-efficient R-78E switching regulator series with modules featuring 9V, 12V, and 15V output voltages. This series is designed to offer all of the advantages of a standard switching regulator (high efficiency, wide input range, accurate output voltage regulation) but at a lower cost.

Like the existing 3.3V and 5V versions, the new 9V, 12V, and 15V modules are also equipped with short circuit protection. Measuring only 11.6 x 8.5 x 10.4 mm, their compact TO-220-compatible SIP3 package saves valuable board space, and with efficiency up to 95%, these higher power versions of the R-78E still do not require a heat sink.

With a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and a wide input range, the R-78E series is flexible enough to handle everything from battery operated systems, controls and sensors, positioning systems, and robotics, to medical-grade applications, cooling systems and fans, telecommunications, and highly sensitive measurement equipment.

The modules are IEC/EN60950-1 certified and carry a 3-year warranty. Samples are available from all of RECOM´s global distributors. For more information please visit
