SMPS are needed for smart energy applications, such as low power lighting controls, audio or thermostat controls and other smart home electronics applications, as well as industrial controls.
It supplies SMPS Modules in high performance (HP) models: HP01, HP02, HP03 and HP01-X, HP02-X, HP03-X and performance (ZP): the ZP01, ZP02, ZP03, ZP05 and ZP10.
An SMPS is efficient, regulating its output voltage by switching energy storage elements, such as inductors, with a transistor changing on and off states at high frequencies, says the company. In this mode, the transistor has a very low resistance in its on state, enabling the converters to operate with a higher efficiency of up to 90%, depending on load and voltage levels.
They are also light and compact. For mains input SMPS, isolation is achieved by the built-in transformer which also acts as a mutual inductor for energy storage. Its high switching frequency allows the transformer to be smaller compared to 50/60Hz iron core types, saving size and weight.
Various topology options are available, such as flyback SMPS, which enable custom solutions. The SMPS Modules are designed for applications, such as building automation control boards (e. g. smart home and smart energy applications, wireless switching, lighting controls, heating ventilation air-conditioning (HVAC) control boards), white goods/appliances and test and measurement devices (e.g. smart meters, smart power outlets/smart power strips).
