Inexpensive low-power “AC/DC-Converter” with extremely low no-load power consumption

RECOM announces the release of a new range of isolated AC/DC power supply modules with very low standby input currents, ideally suited for low power applications or standby power supplies.

The RAC01 and RAC02 offer 1W or 2W of output power from a universal input voltage of 90-265VAC and yet draw only 30mW in standby. The RAC03 offers a higher output power of 3W yet draws only 80mW when unloaded.

For many applications this low standby power will significantly reduce energy consumption and reduce costs compared with standard power supplies. Typical applications include … Read More → "Inexpensive low-power “AC/DC-Converter” with extremely low no-load power consumption"
