Schaffner EMV has added the RB series to its product program of current-compensated chokes. The chokes are available as one- and three-phase designs in horizontal and vertical construction for currents from 16 to 50A. Characteristic of the new series are the open construction and clear separation of the windings by the use of a new bobbin design. With forced cooling the chokes can operate with up to 80A. The air gaps and leakage paths are designed for working voltages of up to 600Vac /1000Vdc. Particular value was set on the pin-out of the chokes to permit a simple layout of the circuit boards. A straightforward circuit path design has advantages in terms of losses and noise suppression, especially for applications at higher current levels. An application note also provides important information how to integrate EMC/EMI filters into circuit boards. As a result, the EMC/EMI filtering can be incorporated into the circuit board of power electronic devices, such as inverters for drive applications, for photovoltaic or for charging stations. The chokes can be mounted directly to the circuit boards and are thus applicable for electronic devices that are exposed to vibration. The chokes comply with the RoHS and REACH requirements and are off-the-shelf available through our global distribution and sales network.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
