SoftProtector® Cores to suppress damaging unbalanced currents

Modern high-power, frequency converter operated systems, especially those that are operated at very high switching frequencies, cause harmful interference currents which, among other things, groove and destroy the bearings of motors as so-called bearing currents. Systems stop unexpectedly, communication problems can arise, the function of sensors can be affected, and even motor terminals can wear out. By using easy-to-retrofit SoftProtector® Cores, such a malfunction can be reduced to a minimum so that your system can be operated with a calculable maintenance cycle.

It may also be possible to switch from hybrid bearings to conventional steel bearings. The SoftProtector® Cores absorb the harmful high-frequency part of the interference current and convert it into thermal energy, which can be released without damage via the core surface. When placed correctly, you not only protect the bearings of your engine, but also the entire system.

SoftProtector® Cores are working as single turn common mode choke and reduce the asymmetrical radio frequency noisecurrent without affecting the symmetrical power current.
