Push-pull transformer provides isolation between systems

Isolation from high voltage hazards between systems is provided by Bourns which has added the Model PAD00x-T764 isolation transformer series.

Designed for isolated power performance for serial communications, the transformers in the series feature functional isolation and a low 0.4mm profile form factor to simplify isolated power and serial communication signal integrity in CAN, RS-485, RS-422, RS-232, SPI, I2C, and lower power LAN-based applications. The Model PAD00x-T763 series can be used in industrial automation, embedded solutions, AC motor drives, system integration, communication PHYs, smart metering, and other applications requiring low DC power.

They maintain communication and necessary isolation between systems. The 3.1kV AC withstanding voltage provides an isolation barrier from high voltage hazards, such as high voltage batteries. They are constructed with a ferrite toroid core to ensure a high coupling factor and heightened efficiency, reported Bourns. EMI performance is enhanced in the winding of the transformer, enabling reduced emissions. The PAD00x-T764 series is compatible with Texas Instruments SN6501 and SN6506B, the MAX253 and MAX845 and ADM2485, from Analog Devices and similar transformer drivers. The transformers offer 3.3 to 5.0V input, industry standard 3.3 to 10V output, and up to 250mA output with various turns ratios. The Bourns Magnetics product line can also support most modification and customisation requests for this push-pull transformer series.

Bourns Model PAD00x-T764 Series isolation transformers are available now and are RoHS compliant and halogen free.

Bourns manufactures and supplies position and speed sensors, circuit protection solutions, magnetic components, microelectronic modules, panel controls and resistive products.

Headquartered in Riverside, California, USA, Bourns serves a broad range of markets, including automotive, industrial, consumer, communications, medical (low/medium risk) and audio.
