REDUCTION OF POWER LOSS BY UP TO 25%
REO continues to advance the use of EDGE Winding technology with the introduction of the latest generation N CNW choke and filter series. Greater effectiveness combined with reduced weight, the new edgewise winding series also boasts superior cooling thanks to its single layer structure and can be forced cooled with particular effectiveness.
Due to better cooling, aluminium conductors may be used as a replacement for copper conductors depending on design. As a result, production costs can be reduced even further thanks to the addition of material cost reductions combined with the automated production process.
The reduced weight and smaller dimensions are possible thanks to the reduction of skin and proximity losses. EDGE Winding is particularly well suited for semiconductors based on new materials like silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium carbide (GaN).
Due to the lower winding capacity, the edgewise winding can also be used at higher frequencies. The life cycle is increased as practically no insulation material is required.
REDUCTION IN WEIGHT BY UP TO 10%
“This edge-winding technology is an innovation from our development team, which is constantly researching the latest technologies and always comes across new approaches as a result. We recognised the opportunities that came with this new winding technology and have been able to start small scale or serial production since 2020, offering our customers extremely fast delivery times. In particular, the impressive cooling feature in the N CNW series is enabled through the single-layer structure with alternative materials and means insulation material often becomes unnecessary. This has two benefits, on one hand, this results in smaller dimensions and lower weight, and on the other, the product is more durable and there are more application possibilities compared to traditional winding technologies.” Sven Reimann
