RAR files are archives of data. Utilities such as 7-Zip are able to convert data to and from archives such as RAR. "BIN" refers to either a binary file or a type of disk image file, both of which are unarchived. 7-Zip is able to convert RAR files into either type of BIN file, provided that the RAR file contains archived BIN data. Converting from a RAR file means decompressing archived data. If the archived data was not a BIN file before compression, there is no way to convert RAR directly to BIN.
