SCHURTER’s RTS series is a compact thermal protection device. Power semiconductors such as MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, TRIACs, SCRs, etc. can overheat and lead to thermal runaway, due to their inherent self-reinforcing heat-producing behavior. The RTS is designed to protect against such overheating, reliably and precisely interrupting the circuit at a pre-defined temperature. RTS stands for “Reflowable Thermal Switch”. The RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C. After the solder process, the RTS is mechanically activated by depressing the top into place, arming the RTS to trip at 210 °C. It can

Demand for raw materials is increasing MAGNETIC SEPARATOR FOR LITHIUM BATTERY POWDER Goudsmit Magnetics of  Waalre, the Netherlands has recently produced a rotating magnetic separator intended for the metal-free processing of lithium-ion powder intended for batteries. The quality of cathode powders such as nickel, cadmium and lithium must be optimal to guarantee the operation of a battery. Any metal contamination present in the powder reduces the quality of the material mix and leads to a battery's short life. The automatic cleaning rotating magnetic separator filters metal particles as small as 30 µm from the poorly flowing lithium powder. Lithium is
