Loadstar Sensors, Inc. announced the iLoad Mini miniature load cell, and the DQ-1000 versatile signal conditioning board that enables three different outputs: digital USB, 0.5V to 4.5V analog or 2 mV/V. The sensor offers ease of use in a rugged, low profile 1.25" diameter package and heights between 0.5" and 1" depending on the configuration. The separation of the load cell from the signal conditioning interface board gives greater flexibility to designers and inventors who want to fit the sensor into small spaces.
International Rectifier introduced the iP2005A. The device is optimized for very low EMI, eliminating the need for external snubber circuits in EMI-sensitive designs such as consumer game consoles. By eliminating external snubbers, it reduces per phase power loss by up to 2.3W compared to the previous generation device that required an external resistor and capacitor snubber with values of
Acopian's narrow profile WN8 series of power supplies, with outputs from 3.3V DC to 48V DC and from 120W to 288W, have been recognized for compliance with the requirements of UL508. They can be used on an input of 90V AC to 265V AC or 110V DC to 350V DC. All models have power factor correction and output inhibit capability - applying between +3V DC and +25 VDC to the Inhibit terminal will disable the output.
Copley Controls has developed a hardened version of the versatile panel-mounting Accelnet servo drive to meet both military and extreme industrial environments. The drive’s extended temperature, humidity, vibration and shock ranges provide added security in non-extreme applications. Designated Series R20, the hardened drives provide networking and stand-alone motion control for brush and brushless motors
