Flyback transformer optimised for industrial apps

The HM210-05K060LFTR flyback transformer from TT Electronics is designed for use with Avago’s ACPL-32JT/302J IGBT chipset. With its high level of isolation, the transformer is said to be optimised for use in demanding industrial motor control and inverter applications.

According to the company, the flyback transformer offers a higher saturation current capability and a lower leakage inductance performance, making it suitable for high efficiency DC/DC applications where size is critical.

The transformer operates in temperatures ranging from -40 to 155°C, which is said to contribute to its 5kV isolation voltage capability between primary and secondary windings.

The flyback transformer measures 19.5 x 14.5 x 16.5mm and is designed for PCB mounting. It has a primary resistance of 305mΩ.

Used in conjunction with Avago’s ACPL-32JT/302J 2.5A gate drive optocoupler, the transformer is suitable for a range of industrial applications, including inverters, uninterruptible and switch-mode power supplies, automation systems, DC/DC converters, renewable energy inverters, and AC and brushless DC motor drives.
