Linear Technology introduced the LTC2915, a single voltage supervisor with 27 unique pin-selectable thresholds. A single LTC2915 can easily be configured to meet different monitoring tasks in applications ranging from network servers monitoring 12V to low-voltage portable equipment. The 27 selectable thresholds are specified with an overall accuracy of ±1.5 percent without the need for 0.1 percent external resistors.
LitePoint Corp. announces its TrueCableT kit that measures the loss of cables used in precision wireless test set-ups such as channel emulation. The calibrator allows chipset vendors, OEMs and quality-approval groups to achieve optimum test accuracy in a straight-forward manner. The instrument consists of an RF unit that is attached to an IQview or IQflex one-box tester VSG port.
Electro Standards Laboratories announces its model 4333 CellMite ProD high performance embedded data acquisition and strain gauge interface board that is suitable for embedded applications that require high speed analog and digital data acquisition. The board features dual 24-bit independent strain gauge channels with simultaneous sampling at 15,000 samples/second that can also be configured as quad 24-bit strain gauge channels sampled at 5,000 samples/second.
Microstar Laboratories announces its DAPserver 400 and its DAPserver 400R test, measurement and control products that combine a five-slot PCI backplane and a 10-slot Eurocard cage in an industrial-grade chassis. A Pentium M processor runs server software on a board that occupies one of the PCI slots. This software and the software running on DAP boards protects applications from local or network-related delays.
Omron Electronic Components introduces its B5V-1422 disk jog switch that offers a single user interface with which to scroll through lists and make choices. Five tactile selector switches (a center push button and four peripheral push points) are combined with a rotational jog feature. Using both functions, users can navigate through lists and then make choices with the pushbutton switch.
Protek Test and Measurement introduces its model 6300 category III 600V five-in-one, multi-function, 4,000 count, DMM and also its model 6100. The 6300 has built-in light level, sound level, relative humidity and temperature capabilities in addition to DMM functions. The 6300 and 6100 are auto-ranging 4,000 count DMMs with 3-3/4¨ digit displays. In addition to measuring AC/DC voltages from 100 µV to 1,000V, AC/DC current from 400 µA to 10A, and resistance from 0.1? to 40 Meg?
Omega Engineering, Inc. introduces its model OSXL450 non-contact thermometer. Simple to operate, it reads temperatures in less than a second. Its laser sighting system defines the target for point and shoot measurement of temperatures from -20°C to +320°C (-4°F to +608°F). With a backlit display for night use and auto power-off, this IR thermometer comes with a wrist strap and batteries. CE compliant, it is suitable for use in manufacturing, automotive and
Maxon Precision Motors announces its GP 22 S and GP 32 S gearheads that are adjusted for spindles, withstand high loads and assemble easily due to a special spindle intake. Three standard spindle types include metric spindles, trapeze spindles and spherical rotating spindles.
