Charged EVs | Littelfuse unveils new thyristor product line with 3 kA of surge safety
Circuit safety producer Littelfuse has launched a brand new thyristor product line, which is designed to safeguard uncovered surfaces equivalent to RS-485 information interfaces and AC/DC energy provides in manufacturing facility automation methods, power storage methods, energy distribution grids and EV charging methods.
The Pxxx0S3N SIDACtor Safety Thyristor is housed in a DO-214AB (SMC) package deal, and provides 3 kA (8/20) of surge safety and low-thermal buildup throughout long-term overvoltage occasions. The corporate says it’s “the primary DO-214AB (SMC) sized product available on the market able to withstanding 3 kA (8/20) surges.”
In comparison with Metallic Oxide Varistors (MOV) and Transient Voltage Suppressor diodes (TVS), the corporate says its Pxxx0S3N SIDACtor Safety Thyristor has decrease on-state voltage. Additionally, Littelfuse says its thyristor has a decrease switching voltage in comparison with fuel discharge tubes.
“In comparison with MOVs and TVS diodes, the Pxxx0S3N SIDACtor is considerably smaller, and it’s the first product of its measurement to offer such high-surge present safety in such a small package deal,” stated Ben Huang, Senior Product Advertising and marketing Supervisor for Safety Semiconductor Enterprise at Littelfuse.
