SMP Sintermetalle Prometheus GmbH & Co KG (SMP) introduces inductive components for environmental applications. The components are fitted in inverters, power converters and high frequency converters, which are installed for example in waste and raw material recycling plants, in garbage processing, or in sewage and water treatment plants. The chokes, EMC filters, mid frequency transformers and soft magnetic cores from SMP are extremely energy-efficient, low-loss, and designed to perform flawlessly even in harsh environmental conditions.
Protective coating according to IP66 protects SMP chokes from dust and water
Example of environmental applications: sewage treatment plant
The range of uses for the components from SMP extends from currents up to 3000 A, frequencies up to 5 GHz, and a saturation flux density of up to 2 Tesla. All components are RoHS- and REACH-compliant and CE, EAC and UKCA certified. The materials used are UL listed.
At its factory near Karlsruhe in Germany, SMP develops and manufactures chokes, EMC filters, transformers and soft magnetic moulded parts. The soft magnetic powder composite materials used in the passive components are specially developed and produced in-house, thereby ensuring high availability. Besides the environmental engineering sector, components from SMP are used in applications in power electronics, drive technology, automation, signal processing, medical engineering, electromobility, marine engineering, railway engineering, energy generation, renewable energies and aerospace. The products are distributed worldwide, with an export rate of over 50 percent. The family-run company was founded in 1982, and since then has become a major provider of components with soft magnetic materials for industrial applications.
