ProTek Devices exhibited at Electronica 2014 which took place last week in Munich. Electronica is arguably known as one of the world’s largest international trade shows for electronics components. Many companies exhibit solutions for industries that include consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, embedded, wireless, medical, and more.
At the show, ProTek Devices exhibited a range of overvoltage circuit protection solutions. Such devices included the PLR0502, PL0524P, SRV25.4, and others that provide protection for USB 2.0/3.0, HDMI, Ethernet, and more. In addition, at the show, ProTek Devices debuted a new electrostatic discharge (ESD) circuit protection diode for industrial applications. Such applications include assembly line automation, access control systems, machinery, and more. The new component is the PESD2CAN. It’s designed to protect two industrial Controller Area Network (CAN) bus lines from ESD and other electrical fast transients (EFT).
ProTek Devices’ PESD2CAN is also ideal for circuit protection in other industrial applications such as those using DeviceNet bus lines. ESD protection is > 25 kilovolts. The new component is compatible with IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD): air 15kV, contact 8kV; with 61000-4-4 (EFT): 40A, 5/50ns; and with 61000-4-5 (surge): 4A, 8/20 micro seconds. It features 200 watts of peak pulse power per line (typical = 8/20 micro seconds). In addition, the PESD2CAN provides a low clamping voltage, low capacitance, and low leakage current. It is also compliant with the RoHS and REACH standards. Read the full press release and get more information here.
