Vishay Intertechnology to Highlight Power Components for SMPS, Wind Turbines, Electricity Meters, and More at PCIM Europe
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — April 26, 2010 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) has announced that it will be highlighting its latest power capacitors, inductors, and diodes for high-current power converters, wind turbines, electricity meters, and many other applications at PCIM Europe 2010, being held May 4 to 6 in Nuremburg, Germany.
At the Vishay exhibit at Hall 12, Stand 344, product highlights will include Vishay Dale IHLP® inductors and shunt resistors for current sensing, Vishay ESTA power capacitors, and Vishay Semiconductors PowerBridge™ rectifiers and Trench MOS Barrier Schottky (TMBS®) diodes. In addition, Vishay will make two 20-minute presentations at the Trade Fair Forum in Hall 12, Stand 377 on its current shunt resistors (May 4 at 12:40 p.m.) and power resistors for wind turbines (May 5 at 10:30 a.m.).
Featured Vishay products at PCIM 2010:
Vishay Dale IHLP-6767DZ-01 inductor: This low-profile, high-current inductor in the 6767 case size features an ultra-low 4.0-mm profile, saturation currents up to 92 A, and standard inductance values from 0.22 μH through 10.0 μH. With a frequency range up to 2.0 MHz, the new IHLP-6767DZ-01 serves as a high-performing, space- and power-saving solution for voltage regulator module (VRM) and dc-to-dc applications in a wide range of end products.
Vishay Dale WSMS and WSBS Power Metal Strip® shunt resistors: With resistance values ranging from 0.00002 Ω to 0.001Ω and maximum current ratings up to 1000 A, these high-current devices are suited for applications such as battery monitoring and charge/discharge cycle control as well as for current measurement in industrial and home digital electricity meters.
Vishay ESTA HDMKP and EMKP high-current capacitors: The new HDMKP power capacitors support currents of up to 120 A and are ideally suited for power electronics applications such as industrial and traction converters, as well as converters for wind power installations, where they provide a higher than normal reliability and a lifetime expectancy of more than 100,000 operating hours (at rated voltage and hot spots below 70 °C). The new EMKP power capacitors have been designed for DC and AC applications with non-sinusoidal currents and voltages. Among their specific benefits are extremely low losses at higher frequencies, ESR values down to less than 4 mΩ, maximum currents of up to 80 A as well as high resilience under pulse loads and switching loads. The power capacitors are shock- and vibration-resistant and are extremely reliable, providing an operating life of more than 180,000 hours / 100 FIT. Available voltage ratings range from 400 V to 2400 V.
