Traco Electronic has released its new TIM 2 and TIM 3.5 Series, comprising 2W and 3.5W DC/DC converters for medical applications.

They provide a reinforced isolation of 5000 VACrms and come in a compact DIP-16 or SMD-16 package.

Key features of the new units include:

  • 2W and 3.5W in a compact dual in-line package (DIP) or surface-mounted device (SMD) package
  • Leakage current <2µA for BF-applications
  • Extended operating temperature range from -40°C to 95°C
  • Latest medical safety approvals and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance

With a low-leakage current of less than 2μA, the converters are predestined to insulate electrical equipment from the applied parts to the patient (BF classification medical devices). The models are approved to International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)/EN/ES 60601-1 3rd edition for two times means of patient protection (MOPP) up to an altitude of 5,000m, and is available with an International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 14971 risk management file.

They comply with latest EMC requirements IEC 60601-1-2 4th edition for medical equipment. A high-efficiency enables an operation at environmental temperature between -40°C and 95°C.

Models are available with outputs voltages of 3.3, 5.0, 9.0, 12, 15, 24, ±12 or ±15 VDC. Available input voltage ranges are 4.5-12, 9.0-18, 18-36, 36-75 VDC.
