The device provides
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced a handheld, battery-operated cable and antenna tester for field engineers and technicians. The Agilent N9330A is a cost-effective, easy-to-use instrument that delivers basic test functionality. It is suitable for installation and maintenance of wireless service (GSM / CDMA / 3G / PHS / wireless LAN), military communications, broadcasting and radio links.
Phoenix Contact’s SPT 5 PCB terminal blocks provide fast wiring of conductors for power applications. A zigzag pin design allows for an unrestricted 600V and 35A UL capability with a pitch of just 7.5 mm. It is a fixed, one-piece printed circuit terminal block with a spring-cage wire termination design. Solid conductors and stranded conductors with ferrules can be applied without the use of tools; simply push the conductor into the spring-cage connection.
Lambda introduced its new KM-family of encapsulated AC/DC power supplies designed for applications that require robust, encapsulated, lightweight and compact power supplies. Single, dual and triple output models are available with power ratings from 15W to 40W. They are available with combinations of output voltages including 3.3V, 5V, 9V, 12V, 15V, and 24V.
Nidec-Copal Corporation introduced the LPD6G series, a miniature stepping motor with parallel planetary gearhead. The miniature 2 phase stepping motor-geartrain develops 1.2 oz-in (9.0 Nm) at 1358 pulses-per-second or 30 rpm in its tiny package size of 0.5” × 0.41” × 0.343” wide (including lead exit height). It uses 3.0V to 3.3V input and draws less than 100 mA fully loaded
Zetex Semiconductors has added a pair of low voltage PNP transistors to its line of low saturation, high current SOT23FF devices. The ZXTP25020CFF and ZXTP19020DFF combine standard SOT23 footprints with a reduced off-board height of less than 1 mm. The devices reduce component counts, increase power density and serve as cost-effective switchers
Everight Precision Technologies Corporation announced the Positek E111 intrinsically safe, rugged linear position sensor for use in potentially explosive dust and gas/vapor atmospheres. The E111 is ATEX approved to Ex II 1GD EEx ia IIC T4 Ex iaD 20 T135°C (Ta = -40°C to +80°C). This designates the sensor as belonging to: Group II - suitable for all areas except mining and Category 1 GD
Intepro Systems announced its model I-9500LXI LXI-based power supply test system that is contained in one single-bay cabinet. This fully featured automated test system is for AC/DC and DC/DC power converters under 1,000W, including those for cell phones, digital music and video players, and most computer accessories.
Data Translation announced TEMPpoint, a series of high accuracy temperature measurement instruments. These stand-alone boxes offer 48 separate 24-bit resolution inputs, each with its own A/D converter and CJC, as well as a USB or Ethernet port for connecting to a PC.
Sick Stegmann introduced its 2007 overview Guide to Encoder Solutions and Technical Innovations. This free guide features many products, and it details the company’s family of incremental encoders, absolute encoders, linear encoders and wire draw systems, format adjustment positioning drives and related accessories.
New Scale Technologies, Inc. announced its SQLM Series Squiggle motor lock modules, low-power actuators for electronic locks and latches. They are said to draw less power than solenoids or stepper motors and use half the space. They drop into existing lock or latch assemblies, allowing lock manufacturers to reduce the size and power requirements of their electronic locks.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced a family of ultrasonic thru-beam proximity sensors for splice, label and double sheet detection. Each system is 18 mm in diameter, and it features teach-in input modes for easy set-up and operation with a detection threshold that is adjustable for each application.
Dytran Instruments, Inc. announced its model 3089A accelerometer that is suitable for environmental stress screening (ESS) and OEM applications where small size and low mass are critical. This sub-miniature, 10 mV/g, adhesive-mount accelerometer with integral lead wires weighs 0.6 g.
Sensor Developments introduced a line of sensors that measure rotating torque of equipment that uses square drive interfaces. The sensors allow for quick attachment to the equipment when monitoring fastening applications that use nut runners or pneumatic wrenches. The devices measure torque and angle in a single sensor.
IMI Sensors division announced its Series 660 embeddable accelerometers for continuous shock and vibration monitoring in high volume and commercial OEM applications. They offer high shock survivability, high resolution and a large dynamic range. Units use field-proven, solid-state piezoelectric sensing elements for durability and broad bandwidth performance.
