The new RC chokes from the Schaffner Group are available with horizontal and vertical mounting choices. Standard current ranges are from 0.25A to 0.7A with voltages up to 250VAC.
The series of 'Reduced Complexity' chokes are a range of small form factor common mode choke designs, produced without potting. This reduces the weight and improves the quality, as there are fewer steps in the production process. It also fulfils the latest customer requirements in terms of recyclability and environmental friendliness.
The design approach used for the RC choke is the first step into a new era of small form factor chokes at the company. The choke satisfies customers’ expectations with the ability to perform at high ambient temperatures, up to 125C, without losing any mechanical or safety-relevant specification (de-rating calculations are offered for operational ambient temperature higher than rated values).
The range of 14 distinct combinations of current, inductance and mounting position makes the series ideal for power supplies and applications including LED lighting, HVAC or medical devices.
