Mini power supply provides DC power to the home

January 23, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Designed to fit behind standard wall outlets, the Recom RAC03-SCR/277 series of regulated mini power supplies is ideal for the use in home automation solutions. This new 3 Watt AC/DC power supply with an efficiency of up to 78% is available at distributor Rutronik as of now.

With a wide input voltage range of 85 to 305VAC, the mini power supplies can be used worldwide. With output voltages of 3.3, 5, 12 or 24 VDC, currents from 900mA to 125mA are available. The modules have a 3kVAC isolated output and operate reliably in ambient temperatures up to +85°C. With a stand-by power consumption of only 40mW, the RAC03-SCR/277 is particularly energy-saving and consumes less than a twelfth of the requirements of the EuP directive. The whole RAC03-SCR series is CE marked and UL certified.

Due to their round and flat shape, the only 11mm thick disks can be implemented simply and quickly, for example behind switch-plates or within wall boxes. Thus, they provide DC as it is required for SmartHome applications. The series is ideal for the use in home and office as well as for a variety of applications in building automation, security systems and communication systems.
