Thyristor control offers the most efficient, reliable and flexible method for the majority of AC electrical loads. Newtronic thyristor assemblies are supplied as a complete package, incorporating various types of protection, including carefully selected thyristor protection fuses.
All units are designed for continuous use at an ambient temperature of 50o C with natural convection cooling, the normal operating current value is shown as the Rating. We incorporate an added safety factor in our designs and this is represented as Maximum Current.
A choice of control input signals is available including Analogue ( 0-5v, 0-10v, 4-20mA ) also suitable for Manual control or Logic (5-30v dc) for control from computer or PLC.
In addition, to meet the requirement of various types of electrical loads there is a choice of firing modes(Zero Crossover or Phase Angle) plus facilities including: Maximum Power Limit, Individual Phase Trim, Current Limit and Soft Start.
