Flyback transformer from ZETTLER Magnetics for use in power tools

Application Spotlight October 2019

Munich, Germany October 15., 2019 – According to a recent MarketsandMarkets report, the worldwide market for power tools is estimated to reach USD 41.7 billion in 2024 with a CAGR of 5.5%. Growing adoption of cordless power tools, rising demand for fastening tools in industrial environments, and growing construction industry in emerging economies are the key factors driving the growth of the power tools market.

Power toolsCurrently, drilling, fastening and screwdriving tools hold the largest market share in the power tools market, and a similar trend is likely to continue during the forecast period. Within that segment residential and „Do-it-yourself“ applications are expanding strongly, driving demand for compact, and easy-to-handle products with robust performance. For manufacturers, this creates challenges in designing ergonomic, lightweight and easy-to-handle power tool products.

Flyback A world-leading manufacturer of tools needed an extremely compact flyback transformer in SMT construction for its new generation of power tools, with very low leakage inductance to ensure stable load regulation. In cooperation with the customer, ZETTLER Magnetics’ engineers were able to develop a transformer solution that meets all these specifications in a small size, as well as in compliance with EMC regulations. Customized solutions at competitive prices are at the center of ZETTLER Magnetics’ commercial and engineering philosophy.

ZETTLER Magnetics high frequency transformer in e-mobility application

Application Spotlight August 2019

Munich, Germany 20. August 2019 – The progressive development of electromobility drives increasingly advanced requirements on electronic components.

e-mobilityThe expansion of the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles is becoming increasingly important in all parts of the industrialized world. In addition to “classic” charging stations, manufacturers of charging cables, designed for charging mode 2, register a strong growth in market demand. This type of charging technology is popular not only because of its convenient size, but also because of the flexibility to be able to charge several vehicle types from different manufacturers with the same cable. As simple as the operation and design of the charging cable appears to be, the higher and more complicated are the electronics inside of such charging modules. The dominant component of integrated electronics in this case is the power supply, which is also linked to special requirements such as high power-density and constraints such as low installation space.

transformerA leading manufacturer in charging infrastructure approached ZETTLER Magnetics in need of a high-frequency transformer for its internal power supply (SMPS) to redesign its charging cable. The challenge for the engineers at ZETTLER was to develop a high-efficiency transformer for an extremely high input voltage range of up to 400 VAC in a 3-phase application without neutral conductor. With ZETTLER Magnetics’ custom designed high frequency transformer solution, these requirements were met in a design that provided for the smallest possible space, while also complying with common UL and IEC61558 standards.

ZETTLER Magnetics ACST current sensors used in industrial automation equipment

Application Spotlight March 2019

Munich, Germany 26. April 2019 – In industrial automation, it is often necessary to detect operating conditions, e.g. to prevent overloading in the event of a fault and thereby prevent possible damage to people or machines.

Automation

A market leader in this industry came to ZETTLER because he was looking for a reliable and cost-effective solution for his new generation of motor starters, in order to get a feedback of the motor current to detect possible existing fault conditions.

ACST

ZETTLER Magnetics ACST-200 current sense transformer series do it perfectly. The compact components with the dimensions 20.5 mm x 17.5 mm x 16.4 mm (L x W x H) are available with 5.5 mm and 8.0 mm clearance and creepage distance. Both versions have a dielectric strength of 4000 Vrms between the primary and secondary side. The standard version ACST-262-15 with a ratio of 1: 1500 operates linearly in a current range from 400 mArms to 30 Arms when using a 200 Ohm load resistor. The output signal is then 123.3 mV per ampere. Special versions, e.g. with a higher or lower current range are possible on request.
