Pulse Electronics Corporation Key Developments

Pulse Electronics Corporation Introduces 50Hz/60Hz, di/dt AC Current Sensor

Pulse Electronics Corporation introduced its new 50Hz/60Hz, di/dt AC current sensor that can be clamped onto an existing solid conductor without having to disconnect the conductor. The PA3828NL clamp-on sensor has a linear current range of 0.1 amps to 200 amps with 1.0% accuracy for high precision power measuring applications at 50Hz/60Hz AC. Another growing application is for arc fault AC current monitoring, sensing frequencies up to 1MHz. This sensor is the latest addition to Pulse Electronics' Sidewinder current sensor family. Applications include metering, industrial motor control, power monitoring, circuit protection, and current fault monitoring. The sensor has an internal diameter of 6.2 mm and opens to 7.0 mm to easily clamp onto a conductor. It is core-less, lightweight, and can be quickly installed. The robust clamp feature can be opened and closed multiple times. The Sidewinder family of current sensors provides a highly linear output voltage over a very wide dynamic range from 0.1 to 1000 amperes. These sensors differ from traditional current sensors because they do not contain a magnetic core. This makes them more accurate, highly linear, lighter, easier to assemble, less expensive, and offers flexibility of design to suit a wide range of applications. Pulse's new Sidewinder PA3828NL clamp-on current sensors are RoHS compliant and meet ANSI C12.20 accuracy Class 1.0 standards. They are sold in trays with prices around $1.75 in quantities of 10,000.

Pulse Electronics Corporation Introduces New Gate Drive Transformers for High Efficiency DC/DC Converters

Pulse Electronics Corporation introduced its new gate drive transformers for high efficiency DC/DC converters. The PG1427 series has a high HIPOT of 2700VDC and functional insulation between the gate and the drive windings. These surface mount devices offer excellent coplanarity for easy solderability. The transformers have a small footprint and low profile of 8.25x6.9x3mm, high functional isolation, and an operating temperature of -40degC to +125degC. The operating frequency of 50 KHz up to 500 KHz enables optimal functionality in wireless base stations and power switching telecom applications. Pulse Electronics' PG1427 series consists of the PG1427.001NL, PG1427.002NL, PG1427.003NL, and the PG1427.004NL. They use an lead frame in the internal design which improves the coplanarity. Gate drive transformers provide the same insulation to the feedback loop as the power transformer provides to the power train. The gate drive also provides insulation from the IC to the drive transistor to meet functional isolation standards. The parts are RoHS compliant and available packaged in tape and reel. Prices start at approximately $0.60 in quantities of 10,000 with a delivery time of about 8 weeks. Samples are in stock and available now.
