Bulgin Announces New 4000 Series

Bulgin has expanded its ever-popular Buccaneer® range of environmentally-sealed power and data connectors with the introduction of the new Buccaneer 4000 Series. Building on the success of the Buccaneer 6000 and 7000 Series of quick locking connectors, this latest offering provides the same twist lock coupling and ‘fit and forget’ connectivity in a more compact format, making it easier for product engineers to integrate into their system designs.

4000 Series

The Buccaneer 4000 Series has been developed to provide excellent sealing characteristics to IP66, IP68 and IP69K standards – ensuring true environmental protection in harsh conditions – as well as to withstand vibrations, shocks and corrosion to EN/IEC 60068 requirements. Each unit has a UV-resistant, UL94-V0 flammability-rated plastic body equipped with a simple and efficient twist locking mechanism, allowing a secure connection without the need for specialist tools. Currently available in 3, 8 and 12 pole configurations rated up to 13A, 600V – plus a micro-B USB data connector – it offers a choice of solder and crimp contacts, and can accommodate cables from 3 to 7 mm in diameter. Together with a choice of in-line or panel mounting options, this makes the Buccaneer 4000 Series ideally suited to a wide range of marine, industrial, transport and infrastructure applications, especially where space is at a premium.

Schurter DKIH Common Mode Chokes for 1-Phase and 3-Phase Applications Mount on PCB

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Schurter expands its wide range of current compensated chokes with high current types for PCB mounting. The new DKIH series are available for single and three phase applications with rated currents from 10 to 50 amperes. Due to its open design, the chokes are light weight and compact, ideally designed to suppress EMI noise caused by power applications on the PCB.

DKIH

Like all other aspects of electronic design, the power portion is oftentimes built today using discrete components on printed circuit boards. With the trending integration of components, to achieve smaller and smaller form factors, thermal problems and high currents on the PCB can arise. It also becomes increasingly challenging to meet EMC requirements with a filter package due to the resulting space constraints; therefore a filter on PCB with discrete components is a good solution. Next, the capacitors and a common mode choke, with asymmetrical effective inductance, are very effective to dampen EMI noise.

The new DKIH-1 series is suitable for single phase AC or DC applications from 10 up to 50 amperes. Light weight and compact, the common mode chokes are easily placed on the PCB with through hole technology (THT). They are designed and approved according IEC 60938, UL 1283 and CSA 22.2 no. 8. The voltage rating is 300 VAC (IEC, UL) and 250 VAC (CSA).

The new DKIH-3 series is suitable for three phase AC applications from 10 up to 50 amperes. The common mode chokes are also designed according IEC 60938 and are rated 600 VAC, making them suitable for many applications.

The DKIH-1 and -3 have a wide temperature range of -40 to +100°C. They are available with a standard pin out or customer specific pin out. Variations in the winding are also available on request.

Technial Data DKIH-1:
- Rated voltage: 300 VAC (UL, ENEC), 250 VAC (CSA), 425 VDC
- Rated currents: 10 to 50 A (ENEC / UL / CSA) at 40°C
- Rated inductance: 0.15 to 0.80 mH
- Other pin outs available on request

Technical Data DKIH-3:
- Rated voltage: 600 VAC
- Rated currents: 10 to 50 A at 40°C
- Rated inductance: 0.08 to 1.10 mH
- Other pin outs available on request

Application:
- Frequency converters for photovoltaic or energy storage
- Charge stations for electric vehicles
- UPS-systems
- Switching power supplies
