LEM has introduced a current transducer series, ideal for retrofitting trackside applications or for reducing the cost of new installations. Due to its robust design and standardized 4-20 mA out, it can also be used in automation or the control of PV-plants. The transducer’s primary circuit, in combination with two ASiCs to detect the magnetic field, enables precise current measurement.
According to current estimates by the German industry association ZVEI, growth in the market for power semiconductors will triple by 2030 and thus develop six times as fast as the overall semiconductor market. With a 30 % share of the market for power semiconductors, Europe is currently the world market leader - this position must be strengthened and expanded.
There’s a lot riding on finding ways to improve the energy density of lithium-ion batteries, not least in the electric vehicles industry where range anxiety continues to be one of the biggest barriers to widespread adoption.
