The maximum temperature can go as high as 125[degrees] C, but when used above 85[degrees]C you should further derate their voltage handling capacity.
Typically, engines begin to derate from 500 to 5,000 feet [150 to 1,500 m] altitude.
The derating feature, for example, enables the engine to automatically derate itself gradually in increments of 2% to 3% if it encounters harmful conditions such as air inlet restriction, insufficient cooling, high exhaust temperature, or overspeed, among others.
One of four monitoring modes can be selected: off mode for no monitoring; warning mode to alert driver to take action before engine damage occurs; warning/derate modes which alerts driver and also derates engine to avoid or minimize damage; and the warning/derate/shutdown which ultimately will shut down an engine if a monitored condition exceeds a predetermined setting.
It can both derate existing libraries and use characterized libraries to predict and estimate power savings.
The supplies operate at full power in a temperature range from -20[degrees]C to 50[degrees]C with derate linearly to 50 percent output at 70[degrees]C while yielding an input-to-output isolation rated at 3,000 VAC in a Class II input.
Finally, space and defense designers are getting the same state-of-the-art RF functionality as their commercial counterparts, and therefore do not have to degrade or derate system performance for radiation effects," said Chuck Tabbert, director of Space and Defense Products for Peregrine Semiconductor.
Chuck Tabbert, director of space and defense products at Peregrine said, "Finally, space and defense designers are getting the same state-of-the-art RF functionality as their commercial counterparts and therefore do not have to degrade or derate system performance for radiation effects -- this is Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) at its best.
