Ferrite Transformer by ZETTLER Magnetics used in Home Appliance, Stove Top-Control Application

Application Spotlight September 2017

A17_01The Design

A leading home appliance manufacturer required a small, UL ready transformer for a next generation stove-top that would replace the rotary dials with a sleek touch-panel control that met their energy efficiency target. The customer’s “wish list” included a compact mechanical package, energy efficiency, universal input voltage capability and all at a low price point.

About the ZETTLER transformerA17_02

To meet the customer’s requirements, ZETTLER designed a high frequency ferrite transformer, also know as flyback or switch mode transformer. This style of transformer offers energy efficiency with a wide 90-264VAC input voltage range. The design was packaged in a compact E13 bobbin, with careful attention paid to UL spacing, creepage and material requirements.

ZETTLER Magnetics is able to quote most ferrite transformer customizations in 2 to 3 days, and provide samples in 10 to 12 days. We build our ferrite transformers in our industry leading, fully automated production facility in Xiamen, China, delivering consistently high quality at a competitive price.

ACST series current sensors in charging cables for electric vehicles

Application Spotlight July 2017

The trend towards using renewable energies continues unabated, especially in a global push for rechargeable electric vehicles.

A15_Charging Cable

In the development of an IC CPD (In-Cable Control and Protecting Device) for the charging cable of an electrically powered vehicle, a leading automobile manufacturer, replaced a previous design element with a current sensor from the ACST series manufactured by ZETTLER Magnetics. The previous design featured a sensor in which the electrical conductor had to be routed through the core, resulting in significant assembly effort in association with high costs.

A15_ACST sensor

With the ACST series current sensor from ZETTLER Magnetics, the conductor (primary winding) is already integrated into the sensor, thereby allowing it to directly detect the current being applied to the printed circuit board. Another design requirement, increasing the cross-section of the primary winding necessary for detecting currents of up to 32A, was also realized. Apart from the height, it was possible to preserve the dimensions of max. 20.5 x 17.5 mm. The height had to be increased from 16.4 mm to 20.0 mm due to the attachment of an additional plastic hood to assure reliable insulation of the primary winding.

This application example demonstrates, once again, the versatility of Zettler Magnetics components, and our ability to find pragmatic and highly effective engineering solutions for our customers.

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/
