Planar Transformers for Automotive and eCar

Planar Transformers for Automotive and eCar

“Reducing Height: A Tall Order For Standex-Meder”
An automotive manufacturer approached Standex-Meder with the challenge to provide a reduction in height of 50% from a traditional wire wound transformer, and create a custom solution that met their specifications. All this, while maintaining their footprint. Though not increasing footprint, a higher energy density is demanded. The answer their Engineering Team presented, was a planar transformer customized to fit their manufacturing and functional needs.

Standex Meder strategically partnered with their team to discover more in depth requirements and details around the operational and application needs. Through the various reviews, modifications, rigorous testing, and extensive measuring, one looks at such things as:

• Mechanical dimensions (length, width,height, other)
• DCR primary resistance and secondary side
• Inductance, both primary and secondary
• Leakage Inductance and Capacitance verification
• Hi-POT test (high voltage)

Standex-Meder then designed a high-performing reliable part for their electric vehicle needs, the SX58-12-240-12-RS, planar transformer. What we delivered to our customer included:

• Their footprint was maintained
• A customized part with improved capacity to deliver without intruding upon space
• Cost savings
• Huge reduction in height required by a customer

  • Planar transformers and inductors design guide

    When designing a switching power supply or DC/DC converter and your willing to reach the best possible efficiency of your application, than it's most common to use a planar transformer instead of an equivalent wire wound transformer design. Standex-Meder manufactures planar transformers for these demanding applications and you can rely on decades of experience. When failure is not an option, designers of critical electronic components rely on the engineers of Standex-Meder and the local support of Heynen BV.

  • Atex Optocouplers

    Are you looking for a-save way for galvanic seperations between input and output circuits?

    Standex Meder offers you a possible solution by using Atex Optocouplers for intrinsically citcuits. These optocoupler series are tested and certified for extreme/harsh environments such as potentially explosive atmospheres so they will not become an ignition point when subjected to short circuitsor adjacement component failures.

     

     

  • Ultra miniature Reed Relay allow closely stacked matrices

    At nearly half the size of the standard MS series, the new UMS Relay Series from MEDER measures only 9.5 x 3.6 x 6.85mm. Though nearly 50% smaller, the UMS relays offer the same electrical characteristics as its larger SIL relay equivalent.

  • Reed Sensors in Mobility Equipment and Hospital Beds

    Reed Sensors Are Ideal for Sensing so called "End Positions" On Hospital Beds And Other Mobility Equipment eg; motorized chairs, special lifts for bath tubs, massage chairs, etc. all require end position detection. Since all these can be operated by the consumer, care needs to be taken to use low power switching devices, thus eliminating the threat of electrical shock to the user. Also dust, dirt, and moisture may be present, with potential spillage occurring. All of the aforementioned could create faulty operation of switching devices. Mechanical limit switches have been used in the past, but can fail prematurely, because they require higher switching power to operate properly.

  • Portable Defibrillators Use Reed Relays

    Reed relays are reliably used in portable battery operated defibrillators. Instruments that directly save lives require the best possible designs, and must use the most reliable components available. Portable defibrillators are designed so that anyone can pick up and use them with no prior experience. They are only used for emergencies in life and death situations.
