What is a Hot Swap Controller?

A hot swap controller allows electronic cards and circuit boards to be inserted into live equipment and therefore removes the need to power down the equipment. This is highly desirable for critical equipment that needs to operate continuously during system maintenance or during adjustment of load handling capacity.

Types of Hot Swap Controllers

There are several different kinds of hot swap controllers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Type, Number of Outputs, Maximum Supply Voltage, Maximum Supply Current and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for Maximum Supply Voltage are 13.2 V and 80 V. We also carry hot swap controllers with Supply Voltage up to 13.2 kV. Hot swap controllers can have Single, Double or Triple Outputs.

Hot Swap Controllers from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a complete selection of hot swap controllers from several manufacturers that can be used for a hot swappable power supply, hotswap controller IC (integrated circuit), PCI hot swap or for any applications requiring a hot swap controller. Simply choose from the hot swap controller technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed in order to match your specific hot swap controller application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with Intersil, Micrel Semiconductor, Vicor Corporation, ON Semiconductor and Semtech as manufacturers. You can easily refine your hot swap controller product search results by clicking your preferred hot swap controller brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Hot Swap Controllers:

Hot swap controllers can be used for several applications including:

  • Device bay peripherals
  • Hot plug control
  • Power distribution control
  • Central office switching
  • Distributed power systems
  • Power supply hotswap & inrush control
  • Hard drives
  • Enterprise switch networks
  • Servers
  • Base stations
  • Choosing the Right Hot Swap Controller:

    When you are looking for the right hot swap controllers, you can filter the results by various attributes with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search: by Maximum Supply Voltage (5.5 V, 13.2 V, 20 V, 80 V,), Number of Outputs (Single, Double or Triple) and Maximum Supply Current (up to 24 A), to name a few. You will be able to find the right hotswap controller for a hotswap controller IC (integrated circuit), hot swappable power supply or PCI hot swap.

    Hot Swap Controllers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

    If the quantity of hot swap controllers is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our hot swap controller products in tube quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

    In addition, Future Electronics offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch so you can find out more on how you can avoid possible shortages.
