Schurter FMAD CP Mains Filter

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Mains Filter: 3-Phase plus Neutral Line
• Compact Single-Stage Filter
• Various Filter Variants Available
• Light Weight Design, Wide Temperature Range
• “High Performance” Versions Available

FMAD CP is the name of the latest 1-stage filter family for 3-phase systems with neutral conductor. Thanks to their extremely compact dimensions and high performance, the new filters are ideally suited to the tight space conditions in today’s machine and equipment construction. An extended temperature range means that they can also be used in critical applications.

The new filter family is ideally suited for devices with high EMC exposure at low or medium power. Typical applications include converters for photovoltaics, battery storage or charging stations for electric vehicles. These powerful, particularly compact filters are also the first choice for modern frequency inverters for motor control.

Mounting
The FMAD CP filter series has 6.3 x 0.8 mm plug-in connectors for quick and easy wiring. Thanks to a metal flange, a good earth connection is guaranteed when screwed to the chassis.

Wide Temperature Range
The standard versions can be used over a temperature range of -40 °C to 100 °C. The filters are designed for currents from 3 A to 20 A at an ambient temperature of 50 °C. They have ENEC and cURus approval and are recommended for applications up to max. 520 VAC.

Leakage Current
Versions with different leakage currents are available for various applications: for industrial ≤ 3 mA, standard ≤ 0.5 mA and for medical technology ≤ 5 µA.

“High Performance” Version
Although the new filter family is already equipped with very high-quality components, an even stronger filter effect might be required for particularly demanding applications. This is where the “High Performance” versions come into play. Thanks to compact chokes with particularly high inductance and a larger X capacitor, both symmetrical and asymmetrical interference can be suppressed even more effectively.

The completely newly developed FMAD CP filters are the ideal replacement for the SCHURTER FMW465, offering at least the same, but rather higher performance at lower weight.

ZF’s D4 Switch Offers Reliable Solution For Today’s Appliances

ZF Friedrichshafen AG’s D4 miniature snap action switch has been an industry standard for many years. Originally this style of switch became popular with appliance manufacturers, due to its small size and excellent current carrying capabilities.

The D4 series benefits from an increased tracking resistance of PTI 300, a high functional reliability, and excellent switching precision. Using application-specific contact materials for switching currents from 0.1A up to 21A at 250VAC, the switches offer superior contact reliability. Due to several available actuators and mounting points, the devices will prove suitable for many different applications.

ZF are pleased to confirm approval has recently been received for the NCKL2/8 UL certificate which applies to the D4 range. They are now certified as ignition protected against new refrigerants which are being used within domestic white goods including refrigerators, ice machines, heat pumps and air conditioning units.

Schurter UMT-W Super Time-Lag SMD Ceramic Fuse

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Super Time-Lag SMD ceramic fuse with selective tripping characteristic

• Suitable as a Fail Safe Device
• Very high melting integral
• Precisely defined melting times (min/max)
• Compact construction

With the UMT-W, Schurter launches a pulse-proof SMD ceramic fuse with super time-lag tripping characteristics, which is particularly suitable as a fail-safe device in demanding applications.

The cuboid shaped (5.3 x 16 mm), extremely compact SMD fuse is available in five rated currents from 5 A to 20 A and reaches rated voltages of up to 125 V AC&DC with a breaking capacity of up to 1000 A. All these you get with a super slow and precisely defined melting characteristic unique for SMD fuses.

Applications
The Schurter UMT-W is recommended wherever high inrush currents flow (e.g. motor control systems). The UMT-W is particularly suitable for applications with long cables (e.g. avionics), which are often primarily protected by an electronic fuse. If this monitoring fails, or does not perform its task correctly, the UMT-W takes over as a fail-safe device and transfers the system to a safe, currentless state. Due to the precise melting times with its precisely defined min/max corridor at 4xIn, robust and selective safety concepts can be implemented on top of the electronic fuse.

COTS+ The UMT-W fuse is a “COTS+” product. The “+” comes from extended fuse qualification tests (e.g. AEC-Q200) and highly controlled manufacturing processes, which are available to all SCHURTER customers. For higher reliability requirements, we also offer visual inspection according to MIL-PRF 55342, different types of up-screenings (burn-in) and detailed test reports on request.

Schurter C20F Appliance Inlet with Filter

Schurter Logo1.jpg

• Variants with ground choke
• Highly resistant – fully potted
• Interrupts ground loops
• V-Lock cord retention

Schurter extends its successful power entry module series C20F with versions including a ground line choke, designed for suppressing high-frequency interference on the ground conductor. Additionally, the new variants have a bigger X-capacitor for better symmetrical attenuation.

The C20F filter series combines an IEC C20 appliance inlet with a high-quality mains filter. The particularly wide metal flange makes contact with the housing surface over a large area, thus enabling optimum filtering and shielding.

 

Ground Choke
New variants of the C20F appliance inlet filters are equipped with a ground choke. The line filters have a second choke on the earth conductor in addition to the current-compensated choke on the pole and neutral conductor. The ground choke is located between the device plug and the filter output. Placing it directly at the mains input ensures that possible high-frequency interference currents on the earth conductor cannot bypass the filter via the housing. Medical filters in particular (no Y-capacitors) benefit from improved asymmetrical attenuation in the higher frequency range due to the ground choke.

Applications
The C20F filter series is available as standard or medical version and is used in devices that require a particularly high noise immunity. These include IT or telecom systems according to IEC 92368-1 and medical devices according to IEC 60601-1. The series is compatible with V-Lock device connection cables.

The C20F series is certified for currents up to 16 A / 250 VAC according to IEC standard and 20 A according to UL/CSA standard at 125/250 VAC. It provides ENEC, CQC and cURus approvals.

ZF Energy Harvesting Switch Solutions Technology

Self-Sufficient RF Transmission of Switch Signals Without Battery and Wires.

Energy Harvesting Switch Solutions Technology is an energy harvesting switch which reacts to its environment without a need for energy. This solution developed by ZF is based on the principle of Energy Harvesting and does not require any wires. Energy Harvesting can be described as an ‘operation without any auxiliary energy’. Instead of generating auxiliary energy through an integrated energy source or adding it via an external energy supply, energy that is available in the surrounding environment or that is acting on the system is converted. Therefore an Energy Harvester generally speaking is an energy converter.

The wireless RF switch system from ZF based on an energy harvester transforms the mechanical input energy of the actuation into electrical energy, which then transmits, for example, a switching signal to a wireless receiver via RF electronics. The advantages of the system are that the switch can be placed anywhere without the need for any wires. Over its whole life cycle it will fulfill its function completely maintenance free and without any need to replace a battery. The RF switch is fed with different input parameters and is capable of reacting to its environment.

The energy harvesting RF-switches from ZF can be used in a variety of applications such as industrial automation and building automation, smart home or medical technology. Designed for global use, the switches provide an excellent alternative to wired or battery-powered systems.

System Advantages:
Reduction of connection systems
Flexibility for inaccessible locations
No complex wire assembly
Maintenance-free – no batteries need to be changed
Network-compatible
High energy efficiency
Long mechanical life
Flexible “Pairing” allows the operation of several receivers with one switch (and vice versa)
Unique ID excludes a mutual interference between different RF-switches
