Rutronik Ramps Up Automotive Offering
While the use of electronic components in automobiles has been accelerated, strategies against noise have been becoming increasingly important for the assurance of safetyClass X capacitors are used in “across-the-line” applications where their failure would not lead to electric shock. Class X safety caps are used between the “live” wires carrying the incoming AC current. In this position, a capacitor failure should not cause any electrical shock hazards, rather, a capacitor failure “between-the-lines” would usually cause a fuse or circuit breaker to open.. For these, Murata now offers its series of CommonModeChokes for in-vehicle Ethernet applications in 1210 size.
The series is available at distributor Rutronik as of now.The DLW43SH/MH series are CommonModeChokes that are suitable for in-vehicle Ethernet applications. Thanks to Murata’s unique ferrite material technology, the series has accomplished low insertion losses, and a finer mode conversion with Murata’s sophisticated winding technology. These characteristics enable high noise suppression effect and high immunity response.The DLW32SH series in 1210 size is a miniaturized version of the DLW43SH series. It has a reduced size of 3.2×2.5×2.3mm while offering equivalent performance like the bigger version. The DLW32SH series has inductance values from 11μH to 100μH and a current load capacity of 240mA to 150mA. It has surface mount terminals as a structural feature, which reduces the influence of thermal expansion and contraction due to temperature change, resulting in an operating temperature range of -55° up to +150°C.
