ZETTLER Magnetics Switch-Mode Power Supply Module used in Smart Energy Home Applications

Application Spotlight APRIL 2017

New forms of convenient solutions for smart energy and lighting are being developed rapidly. Applications of this kind require intelligent, robust and energy-saving power supplies.

Recently, an industry leading provider of innovative and reliable indoor and outdoor lighting and controls solutions worked with ZETTLER Magnetics on the design of a USB “Type C” wall socket that combines a traditional electric outlet with USB charging receptacles. ZETTLER Magnetics provided a 3 Watt Switch-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) module with a wide 90-305VAC input capability and a 85 C ambient temperature rating as the appropriate power supply solution. The device contains UL approved tamper resistant shutters to ensure compliance with the 2011 NEC Article 406.12, requiring all 125V receptacles in dwelling units to be tamper resistant.

ZETTLER’s new HP series high performance 1 Watt to 3 Watt power supplies are specifically designed to deliver universal and energy saving capabilities required in many new smart energy market applications. These high efficiency plug-and-play solutions for low power applications are cost effectively manufactured by ZETTLER Magnetics China fully automated lines.

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/
