CIP announces its reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) family which offers the performance to implement advanced PONs (passive optical networks) based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). Capable of delivering more than 20 dB of optical gain, this component provides optical data transmission at gigabit Ethernet rates without the need for either a local wavelength stabilized source or temperature control. This combination provides a platform for access network providers to boost performance.
Infinilux announces its series of PAR4 incandescent replacement lamps that are powered by the Cree XLamp LED technologies, including the 7090 XR-E series LED that is capable of producing 100 lumens per Watt. These new lamps are drop-in replacements for many standard commercial, industrial and consumer light bulbs such as the standard 50W PAR36 flood lamp that is typically found
Power Integrations introduces its power supply design idea (DI-141) which is based on the proprietary LinkSwitch-XT family that enables anti-tampering protection in electricity meter applications. It offers an isolated power supply in flyback configuration that delivers 150 mA at 5V under an intense external magnetic field, the most commonly used method of disabling meters without alerting existing anti-tampering measures.
Transitronix announces its complete series of medical wallmount power supplies that are approved to medical UL60601. Offered in 10W, 15W, 18W, 30W and 40W versions, the units have single output voltages ranging from 3.3V DC to 24V DC. These units accept wide AC inputs with choices of US, UK, Euro and Australian-type plug styles.
Agilent Technologies, Inc. introduced its N8262A P-Series compact LXI-compliant power meter that is 1U high, and it supports LAN-based automated measurements of peak, peak-to-average ratio and average power. Its small size and ability to operate without shared power supplies, card cages or system controllers enables a low start-up cost for an automated test system.
Absopulse Electronics’ RWD 200 field-proven, DC/DC converter is designed for operation in railway and other harsh environments, it provides a complete 200W power system in a compact enclosure, and it weighs 1.3 kg. A built-in redundancy diode allows for 1+1 redundant operation when two modules are connected in parallel. This push-pull converter uses advanced FET technology to deliver a single output of 12V DC/16A or 24V DC/8A.
EnerSys announced its model SBS190F high capacity thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) VRLA battery that is said to be more powerful than conventional VRLA batteries in the same footprint, providing users with additional capacity in existing cabinets and enabling the design of new cabinets with smaller battery compartments and/or increased battery capacity for reserve power applications.
Microsemi Corp. introduced its line of standard power modules for solar inverters in a space-saving compact SP3 package. The eight modules feature full bridge configurations combining low saturation “Trench & Field Stop” IGBT top switches with fast NPT IGBT bottom switches for unipolar switching. The top IGBTs operate at line frequency, while the bottom IGBTs switch at frequencies from 15 kHz to 50 kHz.
Ventronics, Inc. introduced its Series TRC-M wall mount, 16W Switching adapter that features interchangeable external plugs for Euro/UK/Australia use and case-affixed, fold-in AC blades for the U.S., Canada and Asia markets. Approved for use with medical equipment globally per UL-2601-1 and IEC 60601-1, this power platform has 100 VA to 240 VA, 50 Hz to 60 Hz input and maximum current from 0.3A to 0.45A.
Contrinex introduces its line of capacitive proximity switches for monitoring the levels of liquids, pastes and bulk material in machines, installations and vehicles even through non-metallic dividing walls. These switches are suitable as limit switches, contact-free position switches, for monitoring and positioning, as pulse generators for counting purposes, and for distance and speed measurement.
MicroMo Electronics, Inc. announces its Smoovy Series 0308…B brushless DC motor. This version uses the System FAULHABER skewed winding in combination with a rotor made of Neodymium rare-earth magnets to provide cog-free motion. The bearing system is composed of jewel bearings. With an external motor-diameter of 3 mm, a length of 8 mm and a weight of 0.33g, the motor is really a microdrive.
E-Switch announces its TL3200 tact switch in an ultra-miniature design and dual LEDs with single or dual color options in red, green or yellow. The switch measures 4.5 mm × 6.8 mm × 2 mm. Contact rating is 50 mA at 12V DC, life expectancy is 30,000 cycles, contact resistance is 500 m?, dielectric strength is 250V AC, actuation force is 160 gf +75/-30 gf and operating temperature is -25°C to +85°C.
Portescap introduces its 25 mm brushed ironless DC motors that feature a carbon brush commutation method for high volume manufacturing applications.
