Back to Basics: Why do we need active surge suppression?

It’s well understood that unexpected electrical disturbances can cause data loss or even permanent damage to any unprotected electronic equipment in their path. Active as well as passive suppression is essential to provide comprehensive protection from all such events. This post shows why this is so, and how active suppression works to fulfil its role. Electrical events threaten electronic equipment by placing excessive electrical energy onto its input power rails in the form of a transient, a surge, or possibly both. A transient is typified as a fast-rising voltage spike of high magnitude –...

In this video, Marco Panizza, Vicor’s European Applications Manager shows how Vicor’s modular DC-DC converters can meet or exceed European railway standards IEC571/EN51055 and RIA12 if design guidelines are carefully followed. These standards address the harsh environment issues that characterise rail applications, including shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, restricted space, varying voltages, EMC and reliability.
