Compact supplies enable flexible use of limited space

Compact supplies enable flexible use of limited space
The trend in next-gen systems is towards miniaturisation. With a height of only 30 mm, the new LRS-35, LRS-50, LRS-75, LRS-100 and LRS-150F series from Mean Well enable system designers to use limited space flexibly. In addition, a no-load power consumption of <0.2 W to <0.5 W allows systems to easily achieve low power consumption, thus meeting energy conservation requirements.

The world’s smallest insulated & controlled 9W DC/DC converter

The world’s smallest insulated & controlled 9W DC/DC converter
Pewatron AG is launching the world’s smallest insulated and controlled DC/DC converter in the 9W class – the PDL09 range from P-DUKE Power Mate Technology. The PDL09 converter is housed in a small, flat SIP-8 miniature package, measuring just 21.8 x 9.1 x 11.2 mm. But with a power density of up to 66W per cubic inch, it sets a record level in the market, exceeding the levels of the similarly sized PDL06 and standard commercial models by 50%.

Gauge pressure sensors offer very low noise output

Gauge pressure sensors offer very low noise output
PEWATRON has launched the A3 series of gauge pressure sensors from Fujikura. The AG3 and AP3 series are compatible in footprint and pin configuration with the highly successful F and X series, but with better total accuracy performance (less than ±1.5%) and a very low noise output. The analogue AG3 & AP3 series is a two-chip system consisting of a MEMS sensor chip and a signal-conditioning chip.

Customised zirconia O₂ sensor modules cover ppm up to 95%

Customised zirconia O₂ sensor modules cover ppm up to 95%
Pewatron has announced customised zirconia oxygen sensor modules and accessories for measuring ranges from ppm up to 95%. Pewatron's customisation allows the customer to put together the best suited oxygen module for any particular application. The oxygen sensors cannot be changed in form, fit or function, but the 4 sensor types (FCX-ULL, UL, UC and UWC) cover almost the full range of oxygen concentration ranges and can also work as humidity sensors.

Gas sensors feature early fire detection

Gas sensors feature early fire detection
The MiCS-5524 VOC/CO dual gas sensor is a MEMS-based MOS gas sensor with a thin gas sensing layer that is highly selective and very responsive to reactive (reducing) and oxidising gasses. These features are essential in a fire detection system, where every second counts in order to prevent irreparable damage.

Modules & accessories for zirconia oxygen sensor

Modules & accessories for zirconia oxygen sensor
Customisation can be considered as a Pewatron toolbox allowing the customer to put together the best suited oxygen module for any particular application. The oxygen sensors themselves cannot be changed in form, fit or function, but the four sensor types (FCX-ULL, UL, UC and UWC) cover almost the full range of oxygen concentration ranges and as an extra feature it can also work as a humidity sensor.

Oxygen sensor module feature robust design

Oxygen sensor module feature robust design
Pewatron has released an oxygen sensor module that can be used in demanding applications where oxygen concentrations below 1000ppmO2 are measured. The key element of the sensor module is the oxygen sensor from Fujikura; it is an amperometric solid-state sensor (zirconia) with high output accuracy, a short response time to gas concentration changes and ruggedness against pressure change, humidity and other gases.
