STANDEX-MEDER ELECTRONICS ANNOUNCES SX41 SERIES PLANAR TRANSFORMERS

New series offers high performance in compact package for power conversion applications

Standex-Meder Electronics, a manufacturer of precise, reliable, and long-lasting miniature switches, sensors and relays, announces the SX41 Series of planar transformers for 500W-2KW applications. Available in standard or custom designs, the SX41 delivers high performance for power conversion applications in the welding, automotive, telecommunications, renewable energy, and aerospace industries.


Compact yet powerful, these transformers feature an enhanced core design to promote volumetric efficiency and thermal performance. A large core surface promotes heat transfer while minimizing AC resistance and proximity Cu loss, and an optimized core cross section lowers core loss. As a result, SX41 planar transformers can offer better power density and performance when compared to equivalent wire wound transformer designs.

The SX41 can handle up to 2KW of power, and like all Standex-Meder planar transformers, can be tailored to fit a customer's specific needs. With a worldwide network of manufacturing facilities, including TS16949 and AS9100 certified and ITAR registered sites, Standex-Meder is well-equipped to provide custom designs to meet any specialty application.
