CIT Relay & Switch announces its upgraded automotive A9 Series relays. With a switching capacity to 40A, these relays offer contact arrangement of SPST N.O. The series uses standard automotive fuses that encompass nine options from 3A to 40A, and it also accommodates industry standard resettable. Coil voltage options are 6V DC, 12V DC and 24 VDC. Offering contact resistance of <50 mW initially, the maximum switching power is 420W with maximum switching voltage of 75V DC and maximum switching current of 30A
Electroswitch offers its Series 24 and Series 31 detent-action instrument and control switches for the electric power industry. Configurable to meet the needs of a variety of specific utility applications, both series feature double-wiping, silver-plated contacts for long life and terminal screws for easy installation.
IMS released a software tool to aide in the design of enclosure configurations. This web-based product configurator features a point and click approach to enclosure design. The process starts by choosing a cabinet size and adding available accessories. The tool allows the designer to place accessories in exact RU location in the rack that best the users specific design requirement. Results include a bill of material for specific configuration; a drawing of configured console for visual reference
Applied Motion Products announces its STAC6-Q stepper drives with current output from 0.5A to 3.2A with 220V AC input. They provide software selectable resolutions from 200 to 51,200 steps/rev at speeds up to 50 rps. The robust Q programming environment provides options for downloading, storing and executing multiple programs with a single drive, giving users the benefit of register manipulation, conditional processing, math functions and multi-tasking.
Emerson Network Power introduces two products that are designed to increase the flexibility and availability of communications among data center support systems. The Liebert vNSA network switch allows multiple Ethernet-ready devices to communicate and function as a team, while the Liebert SiteLink-E provides a communications link
Tyco Electronics announces its hand held visual fault locator (VFL) that provides a rugged system for identifying breaks and bending in optical fibers and cabling. Its powerful red 650 nm laser provides the ability to locate damaged, broken or tightly bent fibers that cause undesirable attenuation in systems. The VFL cable jacket will glow red at the location of the fault. The flash button allows the user to toggle between continuous or pulsed mode. A single “AA” style battery is sufficient for more than 30 hours of continuous use and the soft-side protective case with belt loop provides protective storage.
Tektronix, Inc. announced its Ultra-Wideband Software (Tektronix UWB) for DPO/DSA70000 oscilloscopes that extends the debug and analysis capabilities of real time oscilloscopes that operate up to 20 GHz bandwidth, 200M memory and 50 GS/s on all four channels to include real-time analysis of Ultra Wideband RF and electrical signals. Using capabilities such as time gating and packet finder, the intended signal that may be separated by time, power spectrum or frequency from other traffic can be analyzed.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MU181000B 12.5 GHz 4-port synthesizer, MU181000A/B-001 jitter modulation option and MX180005A jitter application software for its MP1800A signal quality analyzer series.
