Inrush Current Limiters protect electrical equipment from overheating at switch-on due to the surge of input voltage from the power source. Selecting the right Inrush Current Limiter is important. For example, switching power supplies, DC motors, and lighting ballasts can develop extremely high peak inrush current at turn-on unless you implement inrush current protection. Because inrush current equals the maximum instantaneous surge of incoming current from a power source, it … Continue Reading
From the creation of the first inrush current limiter series, back in 1994, Ametherm knew that having logic behind the series naming convention would be important. Not only for organizational means but also to easily identify the components of the inrush current limiters and NTC thermistor temperature sensors. Both product lines, the inrush current limiters and NTC thermistor temperature sensors, have stringent guidelines created to get the most accurate description … Continue Reading
Ametherm announced its product lineup for the Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition (APEC) 2018. The company will be showcasing a wide range of its leading NTC and PTC inrush current limiters for reliable circuit protection and NTC thermistor sensors for high-accuracy temperature compensation and measurement. Featured inrush current limiters at APEC 2018 will include the company’s MS35 series of rugged NTC thermistors. Perfect for applications such as wind turbines, … Continue Reading
