Evaluation boards for current-compensated high-current chokes

Evaluation boards for current-compensated high-current chokes
Proven test circuit boards are being offered by SCHURTER for the DKIH-1 and DKIH-3 high-current chokes. With these, an EMI filter circuit for one or three phase systems can be set up and tested easily and quickly in an iterative process without having to make any adjustments to the layout of your own PCB.

Coupler system enables efficient DC power distribution in data centres

Coupler system enables efficient DC power distribution in data centres
With the GP21 plug connector and the GS21 socket-outlet, SCHURTER has launched the UL approved IEC TS 62735-1 standardised DC coupler system designed to enable efficient DC power distribution in data centre power distribution strips and UPS. With a complete DC power supply architecture, from source to load, the cost intensive and failure-prone transformations and conversions, including their components, are completely eliminated. Operational reliability increases with improved efficiency.

Metal line switches with ring illumination

Metal line switches with ring illumination
The MSM Metal Line series with ring lighting has been revised and fine-tuned by SCHURTER. The optimised switches of the MSM family still have the same diameter of 19, 22 and 30mm. The high-quality housing made of either robust stainless steel or aluminium also remained untouched.

Power entry module equipped with double-stage filter

Power entry module equipped with double-stage filter
Modern electronic equipment is designed to deliver high performance in a compact size. Often this causes problems affecting the equipment itself or other nearby devices due to the inherent electro-magnetic interferences being generated in and between the different systems. To meet these EMC challenges, high performance power entry modules must also keep pace, and such is the case with the new DD14 series from SCHURTER.

Can these IEC connectors take the heat?

Can these IEC connectors take the heat?
  Connectors that are approved in accordance with IEC 60320 are suitable for use at ambient temperatures of up to 40°C. The average temperature over a period of 24 hours should not exceed 35°C with a lower limit of -5°C for the ambient air temperature. But can it go higher?

Providing primary protection against overvoltage events

Providing primary protection against overvoltage events
  Overvoltages take place during events such as switching operations, electrostatic discharges as well as lightning discharges. Be they direct or indirect, they are introduced by galvanic, inductive or capacitive means to electrical lines, with the potential to create devastating effects.

2.5 A appliance inlet is inexpensive

2.5 A appliance inlet is inexpensive
The appliance inlet series of the type 2570 by SCHURTER provides various mounting variants and terminal options. Because of its cost effective design and the wide range of approval certificates for Europe, America and Asia, the C8 inlet is best suited for both industrial and consumer applications. The appliance connector for snap-in mounting is available with solder-, quick connect- or PCB-terminals.

SMD solid-state fuse suitable for harsh applications

SMD solid-state fuse suitable for harsh applications
An extremely robust SMD fuse has been introduced by SCHURTER. The new High Current Fuse, HCF, has been designed using solid-state/thin-film technology. The HCF is especially suited for use in particularly harsh applications, where the reliable interrupt of high currents is critical. SCHURTER's experience, acquired from the development of solid-state fuses for the space industry, and the cooperation with ESA, have led to the development of the HCF.

Fuses provide overcurrent protection

Fuses provide overcurrent protection
Transmitting both power and data over a single cable is a simple idea – a plug-and-play solution. However as the amount of current increases, so does the danger of fire, therefore it is essential to protect electronics from overcurrents and SCHURTER offers fuses to provide this protection. Data networks based on the Ethernet standard are in widespread use around the world and a few examples of devices tied into these networks include sensors, IP phones, card readers, remote-controlled webcams, point of sales (POS) terminals and small hubs and servers.

AEC-Q200 fuses offer reliable EV battery protection

AEC-Q200 fuses offer reliable EV battery protection
Fossil fuels are limited in availability. And when they are burned, harmful exhaust gases are generated. The fact that the future belongs to the electric vehicle is now out of question. Schurter comes into play, fusing electronics and battery cells. Automobiles are becoming stronger, safer, more comfortable, and therefore also heavier. In order to accelerate an electric vehicle adequately, a lot of energy is needed. This is achieved by interconnecting small battery cells – size around 4VDC / 3200mAh – in parallel and in series.

400VDC power plug suits data centre systems up to 2.6kW

400VDC power plug suits data centre systems up to 2.6kW
Converting, transforming, converting, transforming – vast amounts of unused electricity simply disappear in data centres. The idea of switching the power supply to direct current and bypassing a large proportion of these losses results in a paradigm shift. According to an independent British report from 2016, data centres consume approximately 3% of the world's electricity and account for 2% of total greenhouse gas emissions.

IEC outlets now available with integrated light pipes

IEC outlets now available with integrated light pipes
Continual advancements in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) strive to keep pace with the continually expanding human need for information. New data centres continually appear in the most unconventional of places to support this growing demand. These data centres are under constant pressure to improve upon efficiency and reliability under growing regulatory requirements to reduce energy use and cost. Meanwhile, the demand for reliable transmission with increased speed must keep pace.

SPICE up your linear choke library

SPICE up your linear choke library
In order to achieve efficient circuit development, a previous simulation is required. However, each simulation is only as good as the model is capable of mapping the reality. Therefore SCHURTER has provided sophisticated simulation models for its entire range of chokes taking into account magnetic saturation.
