Ball Bearings in Variety of Metric Sizes

December 17, 2007 11:39 am | Comments

Danaher Motion's Thomson Super Ball Bushings are now available in metric sizes of 16, 20, 25, 30, 40, and 50 mm. These bearings have a coefficient of friction as low as 0.001 so designers can specify smaller, less expensive motors, belts, gears, and ball screws. They are drop-in replacements for existing applications and are dimensionally interchangeable with competitive and legacy applications.

Micro USB Connectors in A- and AB- Sizes

December 17, 2007 6:51 am | Comments

Kycon now offers micro-USB connectors in the KMMX size. Connectors are availabile with the Micro-B receptacle for standard devices and the Micro-AB receptacle for the USB Implementers Forum Specification's USB-On-the-Go devices. Both are surface-mount receptacles with stainless steel shells, yielding more than 10,000 insertion cycles for longer life and higher durability.

Automotive Grade, Hall-Effect Sensor Offers 2.1 kVrms Isolation

December 17, 2007 6:28 am | Comments

Allegro introduced two current sensorsfor AC and DC currents in automotive applications. The ACS714 and ACS715 devices are akin to the company's ACS712 and ACS713 devices, which are specialized for low current sensing in non-automotive applications. The differences are realized in the more rigorous test regiment over the full automotive temperature range (-40°C to +150°C) and the greater detail
