Application Spotlight February 2018
Application solutions for residential security systems require highly reliable,
low-frequency power transformers with UL recognition. At the same time, the price
competitive nature of the residential security business also dictates the need for
low cost solutions. A leading manufacturer of home security systems recently put
these requirements to the ZETTLER Magnetics engineering team. In addition, the customer
also demanded a transformer in a compact size and with excellent heat dissipation
to accommodate the sleek and modern design of the control panel of the application.
ZETTLER’S 1.5VA BV series encapsulated transformer seamlessly met all these requirements while costing less than an electrically equivalent
About the transformer
ZETTLER’S versatile BV series of encapsulated transformersÂ are less expensive than traditional laminated transformers while providing better
performance… the best of both worlds! Encapsulating the transformer in epoxy
improves isolation and heat dissipation, which allows for a smaller package size
that still meets UL’s stringent class II standards. Suitable for a wide range
of industrial control applications ZETTLER’s BV series [/encapsulated-power/]
is available in 115V or 230V inputs and from 0.35VA to 10VA. ZETTLER builds the
BV series, at our factory
in Southern China, on automated production lines which ensure consistent quality
at a very competitive price.
