Voice coil actuator delivers low hysteresis and friction

Voice coil actuator delivers low hysteresis and friction
  For some applications, inconsistent motion caused by excessive friction is simply not an option. BEI Kimco has developed a Linear Voice Coil Actuator (VCA) that provides extremely low hysteresis/low friction with precise and consistent bi-directional position control.

DC/DC converter powers gate drives for optimal efficiency

DC/DC converter powers gate drives for optimal efficiency
Suited for driving high and low-side gate circuits such as those using IGBTs and SiC MOSFETs for optimal efficiency, a series of 1W DC/DC converter series has been announced by Murata Power Solutions. The compact MGJ1 series features high isolation characteristics, up to 5.2kVDC, popular nominal output voltage combinations of +15 / -5, +15 / -9 or +19 / -5VDC. The series also offers a choice of +5, +12 or +24VDC input.

Current transducer accurately monitors loads up to 400A

Current transducer accurately monitors loads up to 400A
The AT/ATR-FD series current transducer has been introduced by NK Technologies. An aperture with a 1.31” inside diameter accommodates wire sizes for loads up to 400A – facilitating the feeding of wires through the sensing window for easy installation, even in applications with multiple conductors per phase. The sensor is compact (similar in size to a standard sensor case) and can be easily mounted on a back panel or DIN rail. It is compatible with most automation and control systems.

Researchers nearly double the output power of a THz laser

Researchers nearly double the output power of a THz laser
Researchers have nearly doubled the continuous output power of a type of laser, called a terahertz quantum cascade laser, with potential applications in medical imaging, airport security and more. Increasing the continuous output power of these lasers is an important step toward increasing the range of practical applications. The researchers report their results in the journal AIP Advances.

Li-ion battery realised with superconcentrated electrolyte

Li-ion battery realised with superconcentrated electrolyte
One of the biggest challenges facing next-generation lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles is finding ways to further increase the driving range. One way to do this is by increasing the battery voltage from the present 4 volts to 5 volts. The problem, however, is that the higher voltage is usually accompanied by a severe capacity loss of more than 50% after only 100 charge/discharge cycles.
