Manufactured of windings that are made of copper foil lead frames sandwiched between ferrite cores, Standex offers four families of planar products to suit specific application parameters from 180W to 10KW. Each family features a large core surface that promotes heat transfer. In addition AC resistance and proximity Cu loss are minimized. Low turns count also improves Cu loss. Optimized core cross section lowers core loss while PCB construction minimizes Cu loss. Modular construction allows design engineers to tradeoff cost versus efficiency.
"We are excited to launch these new planar transformer families" said Standex Electronics Director of Global Marketing Christian Rogiers. "Customers have long relied on Standex for custom transformers and electronic components – and now we're extending that reach with these compact yet powerful planar families. While the standard designs will handle many applications across varied industries, we are able and eager to customize them to suit particular customer parameters."
