Automotive High-Voltage Contactors for Electric Drives

Created by Ralf Hickl, Product Sales Manager Automotive Business Unit & Uwe Rahn, Director Automotive Business Unit, Rutronik |   Knowledge

The DC link capacitors are powered when switching on the DC link of frequency converters. The resulting inrush current must be limited here. Ralf Hickl, Product Sales Manager Automotive Business Unit, and Uwe Rahn, Director Automotive Business Unit, at Rutronik explain how this can be achieved with high-voltage switches.

Infineon’s first angle sensor based on TMR technology: XENSIV™ TLE5501

  Knowledge

Infineon's new TLE5501 products are 360° TMR-based angle sensor that detects the orientation of a magnetic field. This is achieved by measuring sine and cosine angle components with Tunneling Magneto Resistance (TMR) elements. These raw signals (sine and cosine) are provided as a differential output signal and can directly be further processed within a micro controller. The large output voltage of the...

Crystals and oscillators for industrial Ethernet

Created by Jochen Neller, Technical Support Inductors & Timing Devices at Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH |   Knowledge

Industrial Ethernet enables continuous communication between actuators and sensors at field level and management systems. It also combines real-time capability with the robustness and security of fieldbus systems – which is why it is gradually replacing it. For Industrial Ethernet to also satisfy tough real-time requirements, crystals and oscillators of high signal precision and reliability are needed.
