RT chokes are available from Schaffner with horizontal and vertical mounting options
Two- and three-line versions with horizontal and vertical mounting options have been added to the portfolio of current compensated chokes available from Schaffner.
Standard current ranges are from 6.0 to 20A, with voltages up to 600V AC. According to Schaffner, the new chokes enable developers to integrate greater saturation behaviour with high common mode performance onto a PCB.
There is a wide range of 24 different combinations of layout, mounting position and current-inductance ratings. The current compensated chokes are therefore suitable for solar inverter and switch mode power supplies (SMPS).
The saturation behaviour and the ability to apply forced cooling, in order to increase maximum possible current, are also useful for motor drive (VSD) applications up to 32A, points out Schaffner.
In addition to this typical applications, RT chokes can be used as a base for all EMC filter designs up to 20A (32A forced cooling).
Schaffner’s RT chokes comply with RoHS and REACH requirements. They have an open-frame construction and UL part lists, making them simple to certify to global safety norms, including UL and ENEC.
The new RT chokes are available ex-stock all over the world through the Schaffner global distribution and sales network.
