Ferrite cores and single air gaps are very common as this technique of a single gap is able to delay the core saturation and as a results increase the cores performance. However its not all good as these relatively large single gaps cause higher fringing flux which will lead to additional copper losses in the windings, especially when operating at high frequencies. Now single gaps aren’t bad by any means as the pros out way the cons, however can we improve this technique even further and reduce the cons?
Do you really need all that gain ?
When looking for Antennas its easy to fall into the trap of “the bigger the better”, however in some situations this can be quite the opposite! In this blog we are going to address some of the very basics about antenna gain and things to look for and consider when making your selection.
Working as part of a small team within our warehouse
For many years at Gateway we have offered value added services to our customers based on their drawings and requirements, but recently, as the skills and size of our technical team have grown we been able to get involved in assisting customers with redesigns or finding bespoke solutions to real world problems.
TDK presents the Epcos LeaXield technology, a new and innovative active leakage current filter. LeaXield enables massive reduction of earth leakage currents, this enables effective use of RCDs (residual current devices) and increases plant availability.
The new LTE Cat 1 cellular network is growing in popularity for Industrial IoT applications, with it being capable of bridging the gap for the transition of 3G/UMTS applications as 3G begins to get decommissioned.
