January 18, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Rated for harsh environments and safety-critical applications, custom-built ruggedised power transformers from Pulse Electronics’ AS9100 production facility are now available to European customers through specialist distributor TTI, Inc.

Pulse Electronics is a U.S. manufacturer of ruggedised custom transformers with over 20 years’ experience of supporting US military and aerospace customers across multiple hi-rel programmes. TTI Europe is offering built to print or designed to specification custom power transformers to European customers for their harsh environment and safety critical applications.

TTI cites a key advantage of choosing custom power transformers as the avoidance of any risk of obsolescence. Pulse Electronics’ engineering team can support all power conversion topologies and PFC chokes with leaded or unleaded terminations. There are no upfront NRE development charges and minimum order quantities are very low – just a few hundred pieces. Pulse will support several iterations as the PSU design develops and sampling for small volumes is entirely free of charge, with quick turnaround.

Pulse Electronics manufactures to ISO9002 and AS9100 standards. All technologies are supported, included Planar, wire wound and flat coil. Custom flyback transformers can be built with up to 20 kW power rating, -55C to +125C operating temperature range and shock and vibration resistant to MIL-PRF27. Devices suit applications exposed to harsh environments found in aerospace, military, space and mining applications.
