MTS Systems Corp. Sensors Division introduces a redundant version of its G-Series Temposonics sensors that offer maximum safety in critical applications. Designated the GT, this sensor measures critical variables by means of two or three independent measurement systems in a single compact sensor housing.
austriamicrosystems introduces its AS5046, a 12-bit resolution magnetic rotary encoder that offers rotation, tilt and vertical distance detection of a magnet placed above the IC. The device can detect vertical distances over several millimeters for contactless, multi-axis human interface devices, such as navigational knobs.
BEI introduced the ES encoder series, a line of environmentally sealed encoders designed for harsh industrial applications. Through the use of a magnetic hub, these rugged incremental encoders are completely enclosed and sealed. The hub is installed on the equipment’s mating shaft, leaving a small air gap between it and the encoder, isolating the encoder from high shock and vibration and makes them highly tolerant of shaft misalignment. With an IP67 rating, the encoders are completely protected from environmental fluids, dust, dirt, grime, and even water immersions. They are suitable for
The eAutomation Group of Advantech introduces the PCI-1763UP relay actuator and isolated digital input card with eight optically-isolated digital inputs with isolation protection of 2,500V DC for collecting digital inputs in noisy environments and eight relay actuators for serving as ON/OFF control devices or small power switches.
Murata Electronics North America introduces its small Boundary Elastic Surface Acoustic Wave (BEL SAW) filter that measures 0.8 mm × 0.6 mm × .365 mm, making it suitable for the mobile phone market. It does not need a cavity, and it achieves the same high tolerance capabilities as traditional filters while assuring the identical thermal-shock tolerance of semiconductors.
Microbridge Technologies, Inc. announces its low power, low TC re-adjustable resistors that are designed to compensate and calibrate precision analog circuits. These Rejustors can be used with off-the-shelf National Instruments hardware (NI-cDAQ 9172) to calibrate a range of circuits in parallel. They are suitable for precision analog compensation in military, aerospace and satellite applications. Automotive applications range from optical systems to engine sensors and tire-pressure monitor.
Crystek releases its Red Box VCO series of VCOs that are available in a robust aluminum enclosure (1.25” × 1.25” × 0.58”) with SMA connectors. The majority of Crystek’s VCO portfolio will be available in the Red Box series, making integration of a VCO into any application a plug-and-play option.
Inelco Hunter introduces the Sanyo POSCAP TPG series of solid electrolytic chip capacitors that combine a low ESR at high frequency with high capacitance in low-profile packages. The anode is sintered tantalum and the cathode is a highly-conductive polymer formed using Sanyo's original technology.
CONEC announces its power module input connectors with integrated filters. They are designed to meet the PICMG MicroTCA specifications for power input modules which states that power module input connectors should have EMI shielding and filtering options. A range of 7W2 dual port connectors for 48V/60V with integrated low pass filters meets the different demands of various applications.
Honeywell introduced its FF-ST Series Safety Light Curtains. The series allows end users to build safety light curtain with a variety of resolutions, scanning ranges and protective heights. Accessories include mounting kits, connectors, power supply and relay modules. The safety light key product features have been unbundled, allowing for custom combinations at a competitive price. More than 3,000 product combinations are available. Core functionality options include safety outputs, restart modes, EDM loop options
BEAR Power Supplies announced higher voltage options for its 1.5W BPS series configurable DC/DC converters. These single-input, single-output isolated converters are now available with input voltage from 3V DC to 15V DC and output voltage from 50V DC to 300V DC. They operate from -55°C to +85°C with no heat sink or electrical derating required. They are suitable for powering PIN diodes, avalanche photodiodes and piezoelectric actuators in applications such as RF transceivers, programmable filters, and industrial and scientific instruments.
austriamicrosystems introduced the AS1323, a ultra-low quiescent current, high efficiency, step-up DC/DC converter which comes in a small 5-pin TSOT package. The device delivers 100 mA output current from a single AA battery with possible fixed output voltages of 2.7V, 3.0V and 3.3V, operating from an input voltage between 0.75 and 2V. It offers an integrated unique low-voltage boot circuit which ensures start-up even with high load currents. The minimum start-up voltage of 0.95V is independent of the load current.
