Provides a simple one-component alternative to using wirewound resistors with timers and relays, MegaSurge series inrush current limiting NTC thermistors reduce costs and greatly simplify designs.
In addition, they increase safety by eliminating the fire hazard associated with failed relays.
While traditional thermistors are only certified for input voltages from 85 VAC to 265 VAC, UL-recognized MegaSurge devices are certified for single- and three-phase input voltages up to 480 VAC.
In addition, they have the ability to withstand high steady-state currents to 36 A and up to 300 J of input energy.
These specifications are the highest of any single-solution inrush current limiting device on the market.
Target Applications: Inrush Current Protection of Power Supplies, Motor Controllers, Audio Amplifiers, Battery Chargers, Frequency Generators, Plasma Cutting Tools, MRI Machines and, Toroidal Transformers.
Since 1994, Ametherm has provided the most reliable and effective inrush current limiting solutions available. We deliver on that promise through innovative design, quality manufacturing, and exceptional customer support.
