Coilcraft is launching its new CST2010 Series of current sense transformers this week.
CST2010 SeriesThe devices detect switching current up to 40 Amps over a frequency range of 50 to 500 kHz while also isolating circuits electrically, resulting in up to 10X lower power dissipation than current sense resistors. This makes them ideal for switched-mode power supply applications, including feedback control, overload detection, and load drop/shut down detection.
The compact, surface mount CST2010 Series has a 14.55 X 19.91 mm footprint with a maximum height of 10.50 mm. Coilcraft offers eleven turns ratios (primary-to-secondary) within the series ranging from 1:20 to 1:200. The CST2010 Series also offers 500 Vrms isolation between windings and very low primary DC resistance (0.00036 Ohms). It features RoHS compliant tin-silver, over tin, over nickel, over phos bronze terminations and has an ambient temperature rating of -40°C to +125°C.
As with all Coilcraft parts, free evaluation samples are available online at http://www.coilcraft.com. Parts are available from stock and can be ordered online at buy.coilcraft.com or by calling Coilcraft sales.
In addition to the CST2010 Series, Coilcraft will also be featuring a number of other products at APEC 2015, including its expanding line of flyback and planar transformers for PoE applications, its XAL/XFL Family of high-performance molded power inductors, and its broad range of AEC-Q200 qualified magnetics for automotive applications.
