Receiving IEC-60945 and IACS-E10 approval for marine industry applications, Advantech’s FPM-8192V 19" SXGA TFT LCD with transflective display integrates a resistive touchscreen. The DNV-certified device accepts up to 4 common video inputs, including VGA, DVI, S-Video, and Video, as well as 3-stage PiP (picture in picture) with floating and resizable windows. The unit exhibits front OSD control with PiP, which can check
Performing in wrist and pocket GPS devices; mobile phones and PDAs incorporating GPS functions; in-car navigation, vehicle tracking, and emergency road support systems, NDK’s NT2016SB Series temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) have an enable/disable function to allow the deactivation of the
Demonstrating ¾ and full extension, respectively, Accuride’s AL4120 and AL4140 slides exhibit load ratings of up to 966 lbs per pair and 882 lbs per pair, respectively. The non-disconnect devices are tested to 10,000 cycles, and are appropriate for
With 150 W output power, the TEP-150WI series of high performance dc-dc converter modules from Tracopower was designed for chassis mounting applications in industrial environments. The modules feasture input voltage range of 9 VDC- 36 VDC or 18 VDC- 75VDC and output voltages from 12 VDC to 48 VDC. With efficiency (up to =87%), the modules allows full load over a temperature range from -40°C to 50°C with
The 9-V and 12-V models in the PSM11R Series 10-W adapters from Phihong meet the ENERGY STAR EPS 2.0 requirement. The maximum no-load power consumption for EPS 2.0 is 0.5 W or less for adapters with an output power from 50 W to 250 W and 0.3 W, or less for adapters with an output power of <50 W. The
Based on the ‘Wiegand effect,’ the MAGNETOCODE encoder series (MCD) from FRABA generates a short burst of electric power whenever the shaft rotates. MCD encoders provide a maximum resolution of 12 bits per revolution and can register up to 8,192 revolutions (13 bits). Higher capacity models are available
