Minntronix Announces 50 Amp Micro CT With Best in Class Energy Efficiency

Share Article

Growing needs for “Greener” SMPS designs led the Minntronix engineering team to develop the Micro CT.

The new Minntronix Micro CT improves converter output efficiency by giving switchmode power supply designers the ability to sense the exact time to switch from charge to discharge. The MT72700 series helps customers reach 90% efficiency goals in various flyback designs. By replacing the silicon solution with the Micro CT output efficiency gains of 3-5% were achieved with no net cost impact to the circuit.

The Micro CT is accurate over a temperature range of -40° to 85° C and from 20 kHz to 500 kHz making it suitable for a variety of applications. At only 20 mm by 14.8 mm the Micro CT consumes little circuit board real estate.

Primary Current: 50 Amps Peak

Operating Current: 35 Amps

Primary DCR: 115 microohms typ

Secondary DCR: 615 milliohms typ (1:100Turns)

Temp range -40° to 85° C

Custom turns ratios available. Standard turns ratios from 1:25 to 1:200

The Micro CT is available now. Please call 888.244.3173 for samples.
