Press Release Summary:
SSPC Module provides electronic equivalent to electromechanical circuit breaker with isolated control and status. Measuring 1.875 x 1.125 x 0.38 in., this 25 A microcontroller-based Solid State Relay offers integrated current sensing with no derating over full operating temperature. Features include current slew control, built-in R-C filters, repetitive fault handling, and true I2t protection from 32-250 A with nuisance trip suppression.
Original Press Release:
Sensitron Semiconductor has a New DC Solid State Power Controller Module, 25A 28V
Sensitron's SSPC Module is a 25 Amp microcontroller-based Solid State Relay is designed to be used in 28V DC applications. This module has integrated current sensing with no derating over the full operating temperature range. The module is the electronic equivalent to an electromechanical circuit breaker with isolated control and status.
Its epoxy shell construction and high power density allows the same pin out as industry standard units in only 57% of the board space (Ultra small size: 1.875"x1.125"x0.38")
Added features include current slew control to reduce EMI, and small R-C filters built-in to avoid latch up during a radiation event, only 62% of the voltage drop at 25A compared to industry standards and a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 1.3 x 106 hours.
