Jackson Labs announced Fury, a 10 MHz global positioning system disciplined oscillator (GPSDO) that requires no calibration, delivers high stability, and meets the requirements of a Stratum 1 frequency standard. The device offers better than 1-12 accuracy per day, has exceptionally low power consumption (4.5W), has a phase-noise floor of -155dBc/Hz, and has low spurs and jitter
MMD Components (Monitor & Quartztek) introduced a line of low-power oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs) with options for an AT, SC or IT cut crystal design. The MOFLP Series OCXOs are appropriate for battery-powered applications and as suitable replacements for the Vectron EX-380/385. These OCXOs provide warm-up and low power usage, with typical current consumption of 120 mA during start-up and under 70 mA in steady-state operation at
GlobTek's announced the GT-91085-3550 Power over Ethernet (PoE) active injector for remote powering of Wireless LAN (WLAN) Access Points, Voice over IP phones and network security cameras. The injector is designed to meet the anticipated requirements of IEEE 802.3at, but modifications may be required since this standard has not yet been finalized or released. The active injector automatic detection and protection of legacy Ethernet terminals, eliminates the need for external power supply and
Phoenix Contact introduces industrial-strength Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) modules, which make it possible to use the Ethernet to transfer not only data, but also electricity. The modules make it quick and inexpensive to power end devices such as wireless LAN access points, IP telephones, webcams, Ethernet hubs and other appliances in locations where supplying power separately would be inconvenient. The FL IF 2PSE-F module offers two PoE ports for the Modular Managed Switch (MMS). It is an “endspan” device with power sourcing equipment (PSE) integrated in the switch/hub.
