Pewatron AG and its subsidiary, Pewatron Deutschland GmbH, sell sensor solutions, power supplies, power electronics and drive solutions to industrial and medical technology customers worldwide. Both companies have been part of the Angst+Pfister Group for many years. This successful affiliation will be emphasised and further developed under the umbrella of one brand.

Sensor and power solutions have always been an integral part of the Angst+Pfister Group’s business activities. The range of solutions offered by Pewatron is essentially aimed at the same base  of customers. The growing trend of even higher degrees of integration between sensors, sensing materials and electronics makes a common approach between the two brands sensible and will generate more value...

To control SiC FET circuit breakers – e.g. in on-board and off-board chargers – a galvanic isolation between gate drivers and micro-controllers with a sufficiently high pulse strength CMTI (Common Mode Transient Immunity) and high isolation is required. The high switching frequencies of SiC MOSFETs can generate very steep voltage peaks of up to 150 V/ns.  The magnetoresistive, digital, 2-channel...

DC-DC converters in integral housing are being used more and more in power electronics for the isolation of supply voltages for SiC MOSFET gate drivers. For this application, the entire switched DC link voltage is applied to the high-side converter. The very high and steep voltage peaks (measured in nV/s) that arise in the high-frequency SiC circuit affect the isolation and impair the service life...

Efficient circuit breakers play a crucial role in the design of on-board and off-board chargers in the field of e-mobility.

With the UF3SC series from UnitedSiC, Angst+Pfister Sensors and Power (formerly Pewatron) presents a new generation of SiC FET circuit breakers with outstanding properties. The RDSon on-state resistance plays an essential role here. The lower the resistance of the switch, the lower the heat losses. With an RDSon of less than 9 mOhm at 1,200 volts, the UF3SC series offers the lowest value currently...

High resolution, Incremental and absolute encoder for small space constraint

US Digital’s very versatile new M3K Miniature Magnetic Encoder is available with incremental output or a combination of incremental and 12-bit absolute outputs. Despite the small size, only 14.9 mm in diameter, the M3K is available with an index and has incremental output of up to 8’192 CPR (32’768 PPR). The M3K is designed to work in high volume, restricted space applications. It features a...

and now with an IO-Link interface

Thanks to its aluminium housing, M8 connector and one-touch connectors, the new series is very robust and has an IP67 rating. Internally, the sensor is built around a MEMS chip that operates based on the calorimetric principle. Both the flow and the direction of flow can be detected. The sensor is calibrated with air as standard. On request, the sensor can also be calibrated with other gases and...

Compatible to Honeywell SCX series

The new Pewatron PHPSU-4502 pressure sensor series is the perfect alternative for the now-outdated Honeywell SCX series. The new Pewatron pressure sensors are 100% compatible in terms of pinning (footprint) and electrically. The specification and accuracy are equivalent or better across all aspects.  Hence, the PHPSU-4502 can be used quickly and inexpensively as an alternative without big layout...
