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.
