This designates the sensor as belonging to: Group II - suitable for all areas except mining and Category 1 GD
Intepro Systems announced its model I-9500LXI LXI-based power supply test system that is contained in one single-bay cabinet. This fully featured automated test system is for AC/DC and DC/DC power converters under 1,000W, including those for cell phones, digital music and video players, and most computer accessories.
Data Translation announced TEMPpoint, a series of high accuracy temperature measurement instruments. These stand-alone boxes offer 48 separate 24-bit resolution inputs, each with its own A/D converter and CJC, as well as a USB or Ethernet port for connecting to a PC.
Sick Stegmann introduced its 2007 overview Guide to Encoder Solutions and Technical Innovations. This free guide features many products, and it details the company’s family of incremental encoders, absolute encoders, linear encoders and wire draw systems, format adjustment positioning drives and related accessories.
New Scale Technologies, Inc. announced its SQLM Series Squiggle motor lock modules, low-power actuators for electronic locks and latches. They are said to draw less power than solenoids or stepper motors and use half the space. They drop into existing lock or latch assemblies, allowing lock manufacturers to reduce the size and power requirements of their electronic locks.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced a family of ultrasonic thru-beam proximity sensors for splice, label and double sheet detection. Each system is 18 mm in diameter, and it features teach-in input modes for easy set-up and operation with a detection threshold that is adjustable for each application.
Dytran Instruments, Inc. announced its model 3089A accelerometer that is suitable for environmental stress screening (ESS) and OEM applications where small size and low mass are critical. This sub-miniature, 10 mV/g, adhesive-mount accelerometer with integral lead wires weighs 0.6 g.
Sensor Developments introduced a line of sensors that measure rotating torque of equipment that uses square drive interfaces. The sensors allow for quick attachment to the equipment when monitoring fastening applications that use nut runners or pneumatic wrenches. The devices measure torque and angle in a single sensor.
IMI Sensors division announced its Series 660 embeddable accelerometers for continuous shock and vibration monitoring in high volume and commercial OEM applications. They offer high shock survivability, high resolution and a large dynamic range. Units use field-proven, solid-state piezoelectric sensing elements for durability and broad bandwidth performance.
ITW Paktron announced its Type CS series multilayer polymer (MLP) film capacitors for COTS military infrastructure applications. These CS capacitors feature low ESR and high ripple current capability, and they are intended for high frequency filtering and EMI/RFI suppression in AC/DC or DC/DC power conversion applications.
Littelfuse launched its Nano2 456 Series of fast-acting ROHS and UL-compliant 20A and 30A subminiature surface-mount ceramic fuses. Measuring 10.10 mm × 3.12 mm × 3.12 mm, these ceramic fuses are available in 20A and 30A ratings, with interrupting ratings of 100A at 125V AC and 300A at 65V AC respectively.
Cornell Dubilier Electronics announced that its MLC RF clad capacitors, SMT Types MCM and MIN, passed a guaranteed minimum 5 mm flexure using the Automotive Electronics Council test procedure AEC-Q200, method 005. The robustness of these capacitors is attributed to their compatible COE with FR4 board material, a flexible dielectric and rugged clad construction.
IRC Advanced Film Division offered its LR Series 2W current sense flat chip resistor in a 2512 package that features a copper conductor element on an alumina substrate with wraparound copper terminations and a protective overcoat for increased stability. Applications include DC/DC converters, automotive electronics, power supplies and battery chargers.
Schaffner EMC released its components short form catalog containing a complete line of filters, chokes, feed-through and power-quality components and pulse transformers for electronic systems. The 12-page catalog offers a product selection chart highlighting the company’s line of single phase and three phase products
State of the Art (SOTA), Inc. announced its LPF line of thin film low pass filters in a sub-miniature case size. They are available on 99 percent alumina substrate with 50ohm terminations available for either solder or epoxy mounting. These devices are available with passband cutoffs at 5.5 GHz, 7 GHz and 8 GHz. Maximum rejection is >16 dB; VSWR characteristics are <1.4:1; and the insertion loss is <0.5 dB. These filters eliminate the need for use of multiple components where space use is critical.
