ZETTLER Magnetics ACST current sensors used in industrial automation equipment

Application Spotlight March 2019

Munich, Germany 26. April 2019 – In industrial automation, it is often necessary to detect operating conditions, e.g. to prevent overloading in the event of a fault and thereby prevent possible damage to people or machines.

AutomationA market leader in this industry came to ZETTLER because he was looking for a reliable and cost-effective solution for his new generation of motor starters, in order to get a feedback of the motor current to detect possible existing fault conditions.

ACSTZETTLER Magnetics ACST-200 current sense transformer series do it perfectly. The compact components with the dimensions 20.5 mm x 17.5 mm x 16.4 mm (L x W x H) are available with 5.5 mm and 8.0 mm clearance and creepage distance. Both versions have a dielectric strength of 4000 Vrms between the primary and secondary side. The standard version ACST-262-15 with a ratio of 1: 1500 operates linearly in a current range from 400 mArms to 30 Arms when using a 200 Ohm load resistor. The output signal is then 123.3 mV per ampere. Special versions, e.g. with a higher or lower current range are possible on request.

ZETTLER Magnetics expands Line of Switch-Mode Power Supply Modules

Company introduces High Performance SMPS series and patent-pending Zero-Cross features.

NEWS RELEASE

SMPS Zettler Magnetics

Aliso Viejo, CA, USA/Xiamen, China/ Hong Kong/Munich, Germany – April 4, 2017 – ZETTLER Magnetics announces the expansion of its successful line of AC-DC switch-mode power supply modules (SMPS) by introducing a special high-performance series.

In addition to the well-established benefits of the regular Zettler SMPS series that include easy plug-and-play, compact encapsulated design, universal input range, and ultra-low power consumption, the high performance HP series will feature extra wide ambient temperature capability, and an extended life time of MTBF> 1 million hours.

The HP series will initially be available for 1W-3 W output power, with various output voltages, and an extended input voltage range of 85VAC-305VAC.

A special subset of the new HP series, the ‘X-Series’, features a patent pending zero-cross detection and monitoring capability, which supports increased efficiency of power Thyristor circuits and extended component life time, e.g. for relays, if switching occurs at zero-crossing. In addition, certain sensing applications, such as those found in the ‘smart home’ market, require the elimination of 50/60 Hz noise which the zero-cross feature can help accomplish by synchronizing built-in A/D converters with the mains frequency.

Zettler Magnetics SMPS are deployed in a wide range of applications such as Smart Home controls, wireless switching, lighting controls (incl. LED boards), Test and Measurement devices such as smart meters, as well as a variety of White Goods and Appliances.

Zettler Magnetics has published a comprehensive Product PDF for its SMPS product lines that can be accessed and downloaded at: www.zettlermagnetics.com/encapsulated-switch-mode-power-modules/product-program/

Encapsulated Power Transformers from Zettler Magnetics: Smaller, Cooler, Cheaper

Zettler is offering competitively priced sealed transformer solutions with Class 2 UL ratings – featuring smaller footprints and reduced heat emission for applications such as LED Lighting, Electric Metering, Motor Controls and Thermostats.

Aliso Viejo, California November 09, 2015

Engineers working on applications in LED Lighting, Electric Metering, Motor controls and Thermo Controls keep asking for transformer solutions with smaller footprints, less heat emission at lower prices, and, of course, a Class 2 UL rating.

BV Series - Encapsulated Power Transformers

Zettler Magnetics, a company with years of development experience in the design of encapsulated linear power transformers is responding to these requests with its top-of-class BV series of sealed transformers.

Zettler’s BV series encapsulated Class 2 UL rated transformers:

  • Deliver significant reduction in physical footprint compared to traditional open frame formats.
  • Have superior thermal characteristics that make them run up to 5 degrees C cooler in continuous duty, and up to 40 degrees C cooler in surge testing than previous generations, due to ultra-high winding efficiency and vacuum-sealed epoxy processes.
  • Feature an unrivaled 14kV surge withstand capability based on a patent pending Zettler split-bobbin design.
  • Provide minimized EMI noise without the added cost of a shield, as a result of proprietary assembly methods employed at Zettler Group’s China wholly owned manufacturing facilities.

With output loads ranging from 0.6-10VA, Zettler Magnetics’ BV series is perfect for a wide range of products including thermostats, lighting controls, and oxygen concentrators. Dielectric strength is 4200Vrms, and external insulation is optional for increased dielectric withstand between the component and the PCB. Zettler BV transformers are also ideally suited for the alternative energy market – Solar inverters and smart grid meters are just two possible applications.

Zettler’s highly automated production lines makes the BV series price competitive when compared to similarly-sized open frame models. BV series pricing starts under $1.00 in 10K quantities.

Samples are available on request. For more information, please visit our BV series webpage at /encapsulated-power
