Need better light in your application? Before you invest in creating more light with a more powerful source, you should ensure you are using the lght available effectively and efficiently. Learn how you get the most from your light source:
Learn about the sources of mechanical resonance and the solutions available to protect your component's performance
When creating a component with a soft magnetic core you will have experienced "noise" caused by magnetic flux. In this paper, we explore the sources of mechanical resonances and some of the methods which can be used to reduce the resulting "noise".
PCIM Europe, one of the most important meeting points for the power and magnetics industry, is returning to Nuremberg, Germany on 7-9 May 2019. Our CSfMC team will be on hand to support customers, using their decades of experience helping hundreds of customers, to help you turn your concept into a working design.
Acal BFi is pleased to announce the addition of EOS Power's open frame power supplies to its power portfolio. By partnering with EOS Power, Acal BFi has strengthened its range of market-leading, high-quality AC/DC standard power supplies in the medical and industrial sectors.
Acal BFi's team of technical experts will be on the Acal BFi stand to discuss your ideas, plans or specific requirements for cutting-edge photonics technology and innovative applications. Hall B2, booth 353.

Acal BFi, as TREK's only authorised repair and calibration centre in Europe, provides a comprehensive and efficient repair and calibration service to ensure customers can have absolute confidence in their TREK devices and the results they provide.
If you have used soft magnetic cores you will have experienced "noise", the most common is the hum of transformers in the 50Hz net, but where does this noise come from? Why is it sometimes negligible? And, why does it sometimes reach an unacceptable level?
Acal BFi's specialist CSfMC team offers a variety of services to enable customers to overcome complex EMC challenges and create unique component designs. Come and meet us at EMV 2019, stand C2 318, to discuss your ideas, plans and requirements.
Inductor Design Engineer, Paul Winkler M.Sc. will be presenting his paper "Direct modelling of Inductor Saturation Behaviour in a SPICE-like Transient Analysis" at the 7th International Conference on System Modeling and Optimization (ICSMO) in Rome, from 16-19 February 2019.

Some applications may require a powder core permeability that is in between the values of the standard range. Additional permeabilities can be achieved by adding an air gap between the two cores; however, this also has a negative impact of fringing flux and the related loses. In our paper, we share how different permeability Sendust E-cores can be combined to create a much fuller range of permeabilities without using an air gap or creating new materials.read more
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is an essential element of any electronics design, as electromagnetic interference (EMI) can disrupt electronic equipment and systems. Understanding how a component will function in the final application is key; however, the impact of different environments can change your test results.
