Transmitter

A transmitter is an important inductive component that is often used for powerless signal transmission. Among other things, transmitters are used in studio technology, in communications technology, in measurement and control technology and also in the aerospace industry. Pikatron's origins lie precisely in this area: high-quality signal transmitters for audio technology.

Audio transmitter

An audio transmitter or studio transmitter is used for signal transmission in the analog range. Even though digitization has been introduced in many applications, there are still niches in which these signal transmitters are indispensable. High linearity and low distortion are essential properties of these types of components.

Technical specifications

Transmission ratio: almost arbitrary
Distortion factor: up to 0.05%
Linearity: up to 0.05 dB
Frequency: 20 Hz ... 10 MHz
Symmetry: up to 60 dB
Dielectric strength: up to 15 kV

 

Examples

Designs

  • Core shape: toroidal cores, special cuts, E- and ED-cuts
  • Core material: ferrites, magnetic powder materials, nickel-iron materials, amorphous and nanocrystalline metals
  • Winding material: wire, stranded wire, high frequency stranded wire, foil in copper and aluminum
  • Connections: leaded (THT), surface mount devices (SMD), free ends
  • Construction: open, impregnated, potted, in housing, magnetically and statically shielded
  • Options: multilayer special shielding for wide frequency ranges

Fields of application

The applications of our audio transmitters range from studio technology for the galvanic isolation of audio signals or for the separation of ground loops, communication technology, measurement and control technology to aerospace. They are always used when standard solutions (e.g. due to linearity, phase fidelity, partial discharge) are not good enough for your application.

Power transmitter

Power transmitters are used in high-frequency switched-mode power supplies and typically replace conventional power transformers in many places. With their high operating frequency, the transmitters can be realized much smaller with comparable power. Even transmitters with power ratings of more than 10 kVA are no problem for us. Whether air-cooled or water-cooled - we can offer you a solution for your challenge.

Signal transmitter

Our signal transmitters are used for the transformation and galvanic isolation of signals of all kinds. This can involve the modification of signal levels, but also the galvanic decoupling of two signal circuits. In the case of signal transmitters, it is important that the signal form is preserved as well as possible. Important properties of such a transmitter for analog applications are its linearity and the lowest possible distortion.

Technical specifications

Transmission ratio: almost arbitrary
Distortion factor: up to 0.05 %
Linearity: up to 0.05 dB
Frequency: 20 Hz ... 10 MHz
Symmetry: up to 60 dB
Dielectric strength: up to 15 kV

Examples

Designs

  • Core shape: toroidal cores, special cuts, E- and ED-cuts from own production
  • Core material: ferrites, magnetic powder materials, nickel-iron materials, amorphous and nanocrystalline metals
  • Winding material: wire, stranded wire, high frequency stranded wire, foil in copper or aluminum
  • Connections: leaded (THT), surface mount devices (SMD), free ends
  • Construction: open, impregnated, potted, in housing
  • Options: multilayer special shielding for wide frequency ranges

Fields of application

The applications of our signal transformers range from matching the wave impedance of a long-distance cable to the output impedance of the cable driver in communications technology to separating the alternating current component (signal component) in a signal that represents a mixed current with a direct current component in measurement and control technology. They are always used when standard solutions (e.g. linearity, distortion, housing) are not good enough for your application.

Control transmitter

Drive transmitters or isolating transmitters are special signal transmitters used for the galvanic isolation of large potential differences in modern power switches (MOSFET, IGBT, SiC). Often these components are equipped with nanocrystalline metal cores, i.e. they are best equipped for a temperature range from -30°C to over 100°C.

Transmission ratio: almost arbitrary
Distortion factor: up to 0.05 %
Linearity: up to 0.05 dB

The applications of our drive transformers range from the control of power semiconductors in switching power supplies and inverters in renewable energies to industrial electronics. They are always used when standard solutions (e.g. due to partial discharge, insulation, long-term stability) are not good enough for your application.

NF and broadband transformer

LF (low-frequency) and wideband transformers are mainly used in loudspeaker technology and 100-volt technology. The output voltage of the amplifier is transformed up to 100 volts so that it can then be transmitted over long distances with low losses. This method is often used in electroacoustic systems or electric loudspeaker systems (ELA). LF transformers have a clear advantage over power transformers because they do not distort the audio signal.

Technical specifications

Transmission ratio: almost arbitrary
Distortion factor: up to 0.05
Linearity: up to 0.05 dB
Frequency: 20 Hz ... 500 kHz
Symmetry: up to 60 dB
Dielectric strength: up to 10 kV

Designs

  • Core shape: toroidal cores, special cuts, E- and ED-cuts
  • Core material: ferrites, magnetic powder materials, iron-nickel materials and amorphous metals
  • Winding material: wire, stranded wire, high-frequency stranded wire, foil in copper and aluminum
  • Connections: leaded (THT), surface mount devices (SMD), free ends
  • Construction: open, impregnated, potted, in housing
  • Options: multilayer special shielding for wide frequency ranges

Fields of application

The applications of our LF and broadband transformers range from studio technology, communication technology, measurement and control technology to traffic engineering. They are always used when standard solutions (e.g. linearity, phase fidelity, partial discharge) are not good enough for your application.

Pulse transmitter

Pulse transmitters are special transformers in which short rise times are required and as little interference as possible is allowed to occur. The upper cut-off frequency must therefore be high enough so that the transfer characteristic has no overshoots. An impulse transmitter is also very well suited for generating pulses with very low impedance. A special form of impulse transmitter is the ignition transmitter, in which a very high output voltage is generated via a short impulse.

Technical specifications

Transmission ratio: almost arbitrary
Distortion factor: up to 0.05 %
Linearity: up to 0.05 dB
Frequency: 100 Hz ... 10 MHz
Symmetry: up to 60 dB
Dielectric strength: 15 kV

 

Examples

Designs

  • Core shape: toroidal, E-, EP-, ER-, ETD-, EFD-, P-, PM- and RM-cuts.
  • Core material: ferrites, magnetic powder materials, nickel-iron materials, amorphous and nanocritalline metals

  • Connections: leaded (THT), surface mount devices (SMD), free ends
  • Insulation type: basic insulated, double insulated, reinforced insulated
  • Construction: open, impregnated, potted, flat construction, in housing
  • options: multi-chamber construction, with static shields between windings

Fields of application

The applications of our pulse transfmitters range from ignition transmitters for flash lamps in mechanical and plant engineering to renewable energies. They are used whenever standard solutions (e.g. partial discharge, efficiency, insulation) are not good enough for your application.

Other transmitters

In addition to the transmitters shown, the Pikatron Group also offers all other transmitter types. In some cases, it is only the terms that differ, but in others these are genuine special cases, for which we can of course also help you. In all probability we can also help you with discontinued transmitters of other manufacturers, if your application does not allow a basic renewal. But we are also available for updating your entire application. Just contact us.
