12–48 V power tools and cordless equipment

When heavy duty lithium battery packs and brushless DC motors were first combined, no one would have guessed the impact they would have on cordless power tools let alone drones, vacuum cleaners and gardening equipment. Yet today cordless devices continue to replacing a whole range of mains-powered consumer and industrial equipment. While 12-24 V systems are still common, more and more manufacturers are switching to more powerful 36 V or 48 V systems. Of course with more power comes the need for greater safety and Nexperia’s portfolio helps provide that safety without sacrificing efficiency.
