BEL FUSE RCM300 Series dual output dc-dc converter for railway and transportation systems. The dual output devices are reliable power supplies, delivering 300W at +24V / – 24V, the two input voltage ranges covering all common railway batteries. The two outputs are independently regulated, allowing tight and constant regulation even at extreme cross loads. Products are designed for chassis mounting and exhibit a closed housing. With low inrush current and extremely high efficiency and high power density, devices are suitable for railway traction and auxiliary converters, along with railway power over ethernet (PoE) applications. Devices come with a five-year warranty and are compliant to EN 50155, EN 50121-3-2, and AREMA electrical standards, EN 45545 and NFPA 130 fire and smoke standards, and IEC/EN 62368-1 and UL/CSA 62368-1 safety standards.
