The eAutomation Group of Advantech introduces its PCI-1202U PCI interface card with two AMONet master ports that support the company’s AMAX line of motion and control products. It is a hybrid RS-485 based network similar to other proprietary fieldbus networks intended to offer high speed deterministic communication. Common CAT5 cable is the recommended medium, making it appropriate for distributed motion control applications.
Pepperl+Fuchs added the WCS3B Read Head to its PosiTrack Position Tracking System. Designed to provide simplified installation and improved operational performance, this read head provides a 32 mm slot width, compared with the 25 mm slot width available from the existing WCS3A model. The result is increased reader/code rail misalignment tolerances of 20 percent on the horizontal axis and 40 percent on vertical axis.
Luminus Devices, Inc. announced its PhlatLight PT54 chipset engineered for small microdisplays including high brightness pocket projectors and heads-up projection displays and a variety of general illumination applications. The chipset includes separately packaged red, green and blue LEDs that are each 5.4 mm2. When combined, the chipset produces up to 1,400 peak white lumens in pulsed mode operation.
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announces its PSoC CapSense flexible touch screen controller that supports projected capacitance and surface capacitance technologies across a range of screen sizes and types. It is suitable for small screen portable devices such as mobile handsets, smart phones and portable media players, as well as for larger screens required by applications such as games, POS terminals and white goods.

This display features a digital RGB 16-bit TTL interface with memory to minimize the communication burden on system processors. The panel supports 3V logic. The resolution and size of this module are suitable for portable multimedia devices. It features an additional touch panel, 3V logic interface and a CPU interface. Viewing angles offer a 45/45/35/15 viewing cone.
American Bright Optoelectronics announces its photo interrupter and reflective sensor products that include a range of off-the-shelf components and a custom-tailored, applications-specific capability. These products are suitable for applications in bill, coin and card acceptors, automatic faucet and flush controllers, fax, copier and paper level detectors, alarm components, presence detection devices, RPM sensors and optical encoders
Microtips Technology introduces its MTF-T085AMSLN 8.5¨ true digital TFT. Features include an 8.5¨ TFT active matrix, a resolution of 800 × RGB × 480 dots and full colors, and white LED backlighting. It is also available with a touch screen. Outline dimensions are 206.10 mm × 124.48 mm ×7.30 mm.
CIP announces its reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) family which offers the performance to implement advanced PONs (passive optical networks) based on wavelength division multiplexing (WDM). Capable of delivering more than 20 dB of optical gain, this component provides optical data transmission at gigabit Ethernet rates without the need for either a local wavelength stabilized source or temperature control. This combination provides a platform for access network providers to boost performance.
Infinilux announces its series of PAR4 incandescent replacement lamps that are powered by the Cree XLamp LED technologies, including the 7090 XR-E series LED that is capable of producing 100 lumens per Watt. These new lamps are drop-in replacements for many standard commercial, industrial and consumer light bulbs such as the standard 50W PAR36 flood lamp that is typically found
Power Integrations introduces its power supply design idea (DI-141) which is based on the proprietary LinkSwitch-XT family that enables anti-tampering protection in electricity meter applications. It offers an isolated power supply in flyback configuration that delivers 150 mA at 5V under an intense external magnetic field, the most commonly used method of disabling meters without alerting existing anti-tampering measures.
Transitronix announces its complete series of medical wallmount power supplies that are approved to medical UL60601. Offered in 10W, 15W, 18W, 30W and 40W versions, the units have single output voltages ranging from 3.3V DC to 24V DC. These units accept wide AC inputs with choices of US, UK, Euro and Australian-type plug styles.
Agilent Technologies, Inc. introduced its N8262A P-Series compact LXI-compliant power meter that is 1U high, and it supports LAN-based automated measurements of peak, peak-to-average ratio and average power. Its small size and ability to operate without shared power supplies, card cages or system controllers enables a low start-up cost for an automated test system.
Absopulse Electronics’ RWD 200 field-proven, DC/DC converter is designed for operation in railway and other harsh environments, it provides a complete 200W power system in a compact enclosure, and it weighs 1.3 kg. A built-in redundancy diode allows for 1+1 redundant operation when two modules are connected in parallel. This push-pull converter uses advanced FET technology to deliver a single output of 12V DC/16A or 24V DC/8A.
EnerSys announced its model SBS190F high capacity thin-plate pure lead (TPPL) VRLA battery that is said to be more powerful than conventional VRLA batteries in the same footprint, providing users with additional capacity in existing cabinets and enabling the design of new cabinets with smaller battery compartments and/or increased battery capacity for reserve power applications.
