Wurth Electronics Midcom Inc. Creates Flyback Transformers for LT3799, LT3799-1 and LT3798 Designs

Wurth Electronics Midcom Inc. introduces a series of transformers specifically designed to work with Linear Technology’s LT3799, LT3799-1 and LT3798 Isolated No Opto-Coupler Flyback Controllers with Active PFC designs.

The transformers from Wurth Electronics Midcom developed for Linear Technology’s LT3799, LT3799-1 and LT3798 utilize different modes of flyback operation, catering to power levels ranging from 4W to 100W+. The transformers are designed using a special winding technique to produce a very low leakage inductance, less than one percent, which maximize the power factor and efficiency of the Linear Technology drivers. The designs comply with various UL, EN and IEC safety standards and satisfy reinforced insulation requirements. High dielectric (Hipot) withstanding requirement of up to 4.5KVac is achieved by these flyback designs.

The LT3799 is an isolated flyback controller with power factor correction specifically designed for driving LEDs. The controller operates using critical conduction mode allowing the use of a small transformer. Using a novel current sensing scheme, the controller is able to deliver a well regulated current to the secondary side without using an opto-coupler. A strong gate driver is included to drive an external high voltage MOSFET. Utilizing an onboard multiplier, the LT3799 typically achieves power factors of 0.97. The FAULT pin provides notification of open and short LED conditions. The LT3799-1 offers improved line regulation over the LT3799, but is not designed for use with a TRIAC dimmer.

The LT3798 is a constant-voltage/constant-current isolated flyback controller that combines active power factor correction (PFC) with no opto-coupler required for output voltage feedback into a single-stage converter. A LT3798 based design can achieve a power factor of greater than 0.97 by actively modulating the input current, allowing compliance with most Harmonic Current Emission requirements. It is well suited for a wide variety of off-line applications. The input range can be scaled upor down, depending mainly on the choice of external components. Efficiencies higher than 86% can be achieved with output power levels up to 100W. In addition, the LT3798 can easily be designed into high DC input applications.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
